Ok so this ink doesn't last as long as you would hope, and the price isn't so cheap to replace. However, I do advise not to purchase the 44XL ink. I bought it in hopes that would last longer, but infact lasted just as the same as this 42 ink. But i print mostly powerpoints and essays (word documents) and it does produce more than 220 pages for me. So if no other option, i would choose this over the 44xl ink.

I am so furious right now that all I can say is WHAT A RIP OFF!!! I had to go all over town to find the cartridge in the first place, it was VERY expensive and then it lasted only 7 days for my everyday personal use. I don't print that much and only regular WORD documents mostly...no graphics or photos. Something needs to be done about this! There was NO WHERE NEAR 200 pages worth of ink in that cartridge! I have enjoyed Lexmark products for many years and now I feel that I'm being ripped off!

Comments about Lexmark 42 (18YO142) Black Ink Cartridge:

Lexmark 42 ink really works great in my printer. I use a lot of this ink. I use my printer and have gone thru 3 Lexmark printers for personal use. The inks is really great. It produces really great quality, nice clear and print and even the colors come out distinct. The price is always good. I only wish they would have more sales on this item. Lexmark makes a great product and I wish they would remake the Lexmark 4850. This ink is really fantastic. It runs and runs - it doesn't clog the machine like most inks and it far surpasses my expectations of a printer and ink. I recommended it to my friends also. I really am impressed with this and I buy a lot of ink. Check out my purchase of ink products!

      Comments about Lexmark 42 (18YO142) Black Ink Cartridge:

      The quality of this product is good, yet the value is not. This does not reflect upon the retailer, as Staples usually has the best price around on this ink. I will definitely do better research on ink replacement before buying my next all-in-one printer. It seems like I replace the ink cartridges more than on e every two months. I just bought a new cartridge and my son and I both had to print documents and cover pages, etc. to get ready for the new school year. My cartridge was almost used up in one weekend!

      The replacement works fine. The only negative I have about this product is the price; but I think all ink is too expensive.
