Summary: I have been purchasing this cartridge for well over 5 years and this time it appears that HP is cutting back on the quality of the Ink. After printing only a few pages, the print is already so faded that it seems like the cartridge has been used for over six months or so.
Summary: After three attempts to replace my 2 year old depleted 49X cartridge with three different new (from HP) 49X cartridges I spoke with HP technical support. Technical support said the 49X does not work with the "basic" HP 1320. (Other models maybe OK?) I was told to use the 49A cartridge.
Excerpt: In your description - you have listed HP1160 as a compatible printer, but 1160 is not one of them. I purchased the 49X because it yields more copies than the 49A - but it did not fit in my 1160 model.
Excerpt: Our entire office uses HP products and we tend to stay with the HP brand, even for the toner cartridges. They may have a "generic" brand we could get for less money but we have learned you get what you pay for.
Pros: Clean Replacement, Easy To Install, Sharp Tones & Colors
