I've used laser cartridges (color and black) and inkjet cartridges for HP and Canon for years with no issues or complaints. I buy them from Ink Technologies and get tremendous service with discounts and free shipping if I buy more than $50 at a time. I recommend highly.

We have a local small business that refills our cartridges.

After our own experiment refilling our own and spilling most of the ink, we have found this is the way to go for us.

Also when we needed a new printer our number one goal was a low ink user. We got a Brother which does not squirt, and waste, ink every time it is powered on, like our old HP did.

I have used refilled cartridges for years, from Inksell, Inkfarm, and others. Since I've been buying refilled or refilling them myself, I have saved hundreds of dollars.
I have an HP Officejet Pro and have had many other Hps, a Brother and I believe an Epson. You can't beat Hp's quality, if you can get around their schemes to prevent you from using their own ink.
I even refill the off brand cartridges.

I've had the same experience as many others here. One time I foolishly updated the firmware on my printer (never, never do that!) and it locked out the ink cartridges from LD Products. LD Products was extremely cooperative and sent replacements for those cartridges. Apparently they are constantly having to reprogram their ink cartridges to circumvent each firmware update from each printer manufacturer.

Of course anytime I have a printer problem, and try calling the manufacturer for technical support, the first thing they ask is if I'm using their genuine ink cartridge, and if not I should buy it. The second thing they want me to try is to upgrade the firmware. So I have to ignore that advice. LD Product's technical support is often more helpful. But in the end I have to accept the fact that printers eventually wear out, and a new one must be purchased from time to time when the old one is failing.

I have used LD replacement cartriges for years in my Brother printer and never had a problem. The savings are incredible. Also, if you call LD, you get through immediately and a knwledgeable, helpful English-speaking person answers.

I use an Epson XP-600 and have printed literally hundreds of letter-size full color photos using cartridges and ink from Inkproducts, Inc. in Florida. They also sell (sold) refillable cartridges for this printer, so I have two set of them, one in the printer and a second set filled and ready. The company has always provided quick service and high quality ink; Im a firm believer in their products. I do the the "slap on the wrist" message from the printer when a cart is replaced; i simply tell it to go ahead and use the infidel.
One caution: I will not let the printer update its firmware. I've a friend who had the same printer. After a firmware update his would not accept anything other than genuine Epson ink.

I have used LD Products in my Epson ink jet printer for several years and an LD Products laser replacement for my Canon laser printer. Both have worked flawlessly for me.

I've been a mostly very happy user of LD cartridges in my Epson Workforce printer for four years. In the past 7-8 months, though, the printer no longer plays well with the LD black ink cartridges. Why, I don't know, but reverting to "genuine" Epson black cartridges solved the problem! So long as I can save on the color carts, I guess I can resign myself to paying for Epson's own black cartridges!

LD is my go-to when I need a new inkjet cartridge. I am currently using a Canon Pixma MX490 Printer/Scanner/Fax device. I've had it for longer than I want to admit, but it is still working well, and the only time it ever had any Canon inkjet cartridges in it was immediately after I got it. I've had other printer brands (another Canon, a Brother, a Lexmark, and an Epson dot-matrix [my first printer]. I can't remember any of those model numbers. I refilled my own cartridges for the Epson and IIRC the Lexmark, then I found LD products, and I have been getting my cartridges from them ever since. My printers have all lived a long, useful life, and I have never had any trouble with any of the cartridges I got from LD. All my printers have done a good job of outputting crisp, clear, vibrantly colored pages whether they be text, images, or a combination of the two, at least since I started using re-manufactured cartridges from LD. I get nothing from LD for posting this, and I have absolutely no affiliation with them other than being a very satisfied customer.

This has been my very long experience using LD Products' inkjet cartridges.

It seems I'm the only one who had trouble with using ink not from the original manufacturer. I had to throw away my Kodak Printer after using 123 inkjet years ago. I'll pay the price from the original manufacturer and not have to worry about getting a new printer.

Aw.

Years ago tried several manufacturers or should I say remanufacturers and had poor results. For the last two and a half years, in my Canon PIXMA MX-490 I have used remans/refils from Swift Ink (Plymouth, MI) and they have always worked perfectly. I always say "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". They work well for me.

All it takes is one bad experience. And I had one. So, never again am I going with a on-brand cartridge. Of course, I only buy one cartridge, B&W, per year, so my costs are a lot less than others.

non-brand not on-brand

I used to buy ink cartridges from LD Products for years for my Canon mx922. They are cheap but color not like original. So I started refilling my cartridges using ink dye and pigment dye from BCH Technologies. Slightly higher but the color looks like original Canon ink cartridge colors.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Did I mention that I ruined a couple shirts? :-)

I use "ColorWorld" ink in my Canon printers as well as EZInk. So far, haven't had a problem with either (as far as printing is concerned). I'm satisfied with the color they produce; can't compare the results to OEM cartridges, don't spend the money to buy them...

Hi Bob,

You recommended LD Products a while back, and I have been a happy customer since that time.
Disclosure: I use B&W cartridges only.

Correction: I use Black cartridges only.
( I photograph in B&W a lot :-)

I've used 123inkjets.com (I'm pretty sure from a previous recommendation from Bob) - never had any problems. I got rid of my Brother, though, after it refused to SCAN when it had no ink!
