I buy this product quite often.

Toner is great - easy to use and not messy.

Too bad it is not available in stores!

Ok - first for the good points - these cartridges (black & colors as well) are super easy to replace in my machine (HP Business Inkjet 1100) and they seems to perform quite well. I've never had an QC issues with one, and I've had my printer for at least 2-3 years now.

The not-so-good? These cartridges have an 'expiration date' chip in them, and the printer will not print once the expiration date is reached, even if there is still ink in the cartridge. I use my color printer occasionally (I use my b&w laser much more frequently), and I've had to toss out cartridges that are 80-90% full (and even an unused one) because some arbitrary expiration date has been met. That's ridiculous! They're too expensive to just be tossing away because HP wants you to fork out new money for 'fresh' ink. I think HP should recognize that consumers are smart enough to decide when the ink is no longer good. Definitely don't stock up on these unless you go through them frequently!

Great product, always reliable! Staple's delivery is always on time with this product that is somewhat hard to find in stock at other stores!

Good Product

Comments about HP 40 Black Ink Cartridge (51640A):

We need this particular ink cartridge for an older plotter we use regularly. Older plotters are very finicky and our's only works properly with HP ink cartridges. So glad Quill still has them available!

Comments about HP 40 Black Ink Cartridge (51640A):

We have been using the HP 40 Ink Cartridge in our DesignJet 650c printer for years and have always been satisfied with the product. We can only order them via online, but it was at our office the next day and shipping was free. Great deal
