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! 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):

Even though this ink cartridge is on the lowest rack waaaay down in the corner, I searched it out and it fit in my ancient printer. Sometimes the old stuff is the best!

Comments about HP 56 Black Ink Cartridge (C6656AN):

They simply do NOT last. I use "Fast Draft" to get the most out of these cartridges, but inevitably, it's "fading" after about 60 copies. If I wait about five minutes between copies, I can get copies without the fading at the bottom, for a little while longer. That takes HOURS! If I can avoid it, will never buy another HP printer ever again!

HP cartridge 56

By Sharon Stevens

from Piner HS, Santa Rosa, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about HP 56 Black Ink Cartridge (C6656AN):

Thank you HP for having quality printers and ink cartridges. I teach seniors in high school and use my printer every hour, and students often come into my room to print assignments for other classes. I bought my first HP printer/copier/scanner 16 years ago that uses #56 black ink; the printer is still in use and works perfectly.
My only complaint is that the printer is almost obsolete and I have to buy ink online. And thank goodness that is my only complaint with your products.
I have since added two more HP printers into the classroom; both are used at the same rate. Thank you for thinking of teachers and supporting our classrooms.
