Cartridge is good quality, being that it's for an older printer. Once I tried a generic brand that Staples sold that was supposidly just as good, but it didn't produce as good a color. However, I don't think inkjet cartridges should cost so much in general! The cartridge should last longer, or the price should go down, particularly for the older style cartridges.

The newer printers and inkjets produce more life-like, long-lasting color though, since they use separate cartridges for each primary color. As long as I keep this printer, I'll continue buying this particular cartridge.

Normally the HP color ink cartridges that I buy are just fine, but the last one printed colors that were really "off." I have a Word document that I print when checking color print cartridges. It contains four lines - red, blue, yellow and black. When I printed this file, I got really funky pastel shades. Luckily all I had to do was take the cartridge back to Staples and it was exchanged without a problem. As somebody once said, "That was easy."

Comments about HP 78 (C6578DN) Tricolor Ink Cartridge:

Thank-you Staples for the continued support for the older HP Printers. This HP Deskjet 1220C has been an absolutely fabulous printer. Allowing both 8-1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 prints of Controls Documents - including: Wiring, Fluid Power Diagrams and Technical Documentation. HP has provided the best choices for the Business environment from day one. The products offered by Staples will always be the Huron Design, Inc. first choice. The additional material provided by Staples help make Staples the One-Stop-Shop for all my business needs. Thanks Again...!!!

cartridge life

By Alice Winner

from Hershey Penna.

Comments about HP 78 (C6578DN) Tricolor Ink Cartridge:

The performance of HP cartridges is fine, and I usually get a good quality print. However, it seems that I spend way too much money on ink cartridges. I try all the tips I've ever heard for cutting down on the cost for printing on my home printer AND I still spend too much. I even print until the quality of the print job deteriorates --- often I use this method on a non-crucial print job, and definitely not for photos.... In other words, I do NOT depend on the printer screen warnings to tell me when I need to change cartridges.

great color

Comments about HP 78 (C6578DN) Tricolor Ink Cartridge:

I have ordered this product for my ink jet printer and have used it many times. The color is very vivid, crisp and the cartridge lasts longer then others I have tried. I would recomment the Hewlitt Packard 78. In the past I have tried remanufactured ink but do not think they are as good.
