Thumbs up Printer ink

Wanted to share a printer ink that I found on amazon. It’s called “JARBO’. I read the reviews and was skeptical. $13.00 for xl cartridges that normally run me $43.00? I thought there is no way.
BUT...to my surprise, this ink is great. Print photos and they are sharp and clean.

I have no ties what so ever to JARBO or any company that sells it. Just thought I would share my findings with the Forum.

I have an HP 7510. But they make for most printers.

I have tried reman ink cartridges to try to save money, didn't work out.

Yeah me too. Gummed up my printer heads. That is why I was so skeptical. Honestly I have not seen any issues yet.

I print so little that I found inkjets to be a real pain as with maintenance prints and cleaning cycles which used a lot of ink I'd get maybe 25 pages that I wanted per set of tanks.

I just lately bought new toner "four cartridges for $30" for the cheap colour laser printer I bought ten years ago.

It's not photo quality but has probably printed close to a thousand pages without a hiccup.

I have the same problem, I rarely print anything so when I do the ink probably has dried up. I probably got less than 20 pages from the last new cartridge I bought.

I found HP to be pretty low quality prints anyway, so cheap cartridges probably would be okay. The Canon I'm using now was pretty cheap but does okay as long as you don't expect pro quality photo prints.

Epson Stylus Photos are the only printers that get real high end pictures. They have real print heads compared to the in-cartridge heads the other brands use. The down side to that is, when the heads clog the printer is shot. With the others, you change the ink and you're back in business.

I'd be afraid to buy remanufactured ink for the Epson printer I have. I did find a website for the inkfarm.com and while the prices were good, I don't want problems with the printer and it isn't even the top of the line. Its the XP446 Expression Home a low end all in one unit.

I have the Epson ET-2550, the OEM ink is only $13 to $18 depending on color.
that is enough for more than a year of printing, in fact, we have been using it for 2 years and pushing a lot of paper thru it.

we just now bought a new Black cartridge, the others are about 50%
the Cleaning cycle is a problem, we have made it a habit of always printing out full size color images at least once a week.
