The ink cartridge lives up to - and exceeds - longevity expectations. While I occasionally use the printer for personal items, I have begun a small gardening and plant business to supplement my retirement income (or lack thereof) and need a reliable source for printing out instructions for planting and plant maintenance. This fills the bill. My equipment also faxes and scans; fax confirmations are printed out automatically as well and all prints are clear.

I found a way to make the print carts last 10 times longer. If you pull out the cart. and look at the end there is a window that the software can tell how much ink is left in it. Take a small piece of electrical tape (works best) and cover the window. Replace cart back in printer and tell the printer that it is a new cart. "Follow the setup procedure!" I did this and I have already printed about 10 times more docs after the printer said I was out of ink than before when it was full.
And I am STILL printing with the empty cart's, some time I am going to run out but I have gotten about 4 times the life from the stock cartridge's (so far) with this little trick.
Once you do this it is actually a nice printer for the price!

I'm happy with this ink

By B. Reda

Comments about Brother LC51BK Black Ink Cartridge:

I am happy that this black ink cartridge holds more ink and I use it the most.

I bought my Brother's printer several years ago, and one of the reasons for my choice was concerning the red, blue and yellow ink. It has separate cartridges for each color, so if I run out of blue, I only need to replace the blue. In other printers I've had, if I ran out of blue, I had to pay a higher price to get one cartridge with all three colors in it, and if it was out of one color the printer would not work. It didn't make sense to pay for the ink I didn't use to make the printer work.

Great!

Comments about Brother LC51BK Black Ink Cartridge:

This ink prints with great quality. I have been using this product for about 5 years now and I have no complaints. I also use the colored ink as well and they also print great quality and satisfaction work. I have never experienced smearing on the paper or fading of the colors. The ink dries very quickly do there is no need of worrying about whether or not it would leak off on other papers. I would highly recommend this product to others in knowing that they too will be highly satisfied with it as well.

Printer and Ink Don't Always Agree

By Brother Ink

from Manhattan

Verified Buyer

Comments about Brother LC51BK Black Ink Cartridge:

I have been using a Brother Printer for the past 4 or 5 years. I find the Ink to be expensive, but it is the one that i need. The cartridge is easy to load and begins producing ink almost immediately so i am pleased with the product. I only wish that there was a reset button that I could use to reset the cartridge to read that it still has ink in it when the printer says that it is empty and stops producing.
I can feel that the cartrdige has not used up it's last bit of ink but the printer says otherwise.
I understand that this is more a printer issue than an ink issue, but if there was a reset button on the cartridge I might get more ink for my money.
