Greatest Ink Cartridge of ALL TIME!!!!

This was just the most fantastic ink cartridge EVER. I'm so grateful that Staples is giving me the chance to review it and share my love of HP 56 (C6656AN) with the world!...Read complete review

This was just the most fantastic ink cartridge EVER. I'm so grateful that Staples is giving me the chance to review it and share my love of HP 56 (C6656AN) with the world! You must buy this ink cartridge. I don't care if you don't even have an HP printer - just buy one and admire the expensive rare black ink inside of a plastic container for the low, low price at Staples.

Someone at Staples must've gotten a promotion for thinking that I (the consumer) would be so excited about my ink cartridge purchase that I'd want to write a review and share it with my facebook friends - way to go summer social media intern - you were right! I do turn to my friends and ask them often: "How satisfied were you with your recent ink cartridge purchase at Staples? I know I have to buy the only ink cartridge that fits my printer, but I was hoping that you could offer your opinion."

Sadly, 1000 other people felt compelled to review an ink cartridge...but I bet none of them used the YouTube option! Did you really expect me to film a video about my ink cartridge review? Well guess what? I did.

I threw my old printer J6490 in the garbage and hooked up the old reliable HP 1350 all-in-one which uses the 56 ink and is cheaper and works better than the other junk

Comments about HP 56 Black Ink Cartridge (C6656AN):

I used to buy off brand ink until I bought this new HP Officejet 4630 printer. Staples often advertises sales on HP ink, so I tried it and found it works great. It is high quality at an affordable price. I highly recommend it.
