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

HP 56 Black Ink Cartridge

By General Adjuster

from Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about HP 56 Black Ink Cartridge (C6656AN):

Although I am as always more than satisfied with the quality and performance of the HP ink cartridges, the generic cartridges on the market perform just as well and some far out last the HP products.

The cost of the HP Ink cartridges are quite high and would be more desirable if the cost of the product was discounted by Staples or manufacturer's retail price was lowered. As this is not a new product nor is it new technology and with the competitive market of generic inkjet cartridges today, this move would be a welcome and an intelligent one.

ink cartridge

By Ildiko Hargitay

from Torrington, CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about HP 56 Black Ink Cartridge (C6656AN):

Yes, I bought the black in cartrdige, even though wanted to buy
both, the color cartrige too, but this time the price was even
more expansive as before, that I refused to pay that high price.
Ridiculous price to pay for such an item.
Thas is why i bought the black ink cartridge only.

To be on the safe side, I always keep extra cartridges of both the black ink and the color ink on hand.
