    Rated 4 out of 5�by 7 reviewers.
    Rated 1 out of 5�by Poor shelf life The cartridge does what it is supposed to do until it doesn't. I've had cartridges right out of the store that won't work. When it does work, print something every day. I don't know if they dry up or clog up, but they need exercising every day. I have used these cartridges in three separate HP large format plotters for over 20 years and they are highly unreliable. Great when they work, but for $45 they should always work till they run out of ink. I got one 10 sheet job out of my last one. They go bad so often that I kept spares, but some of the spares went bad before I could use them so now I don't buy ahead. October 30, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Top quality This product is like all HP products, first class and very good. I have never had a complaint with any HP product and do not expect to have any with this one. Have used this HP product for 20 years. Bob KLetzli August 12, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Great purchase Great product. Always buy HP ink. June 1, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Good quality prints, reliable, easy to use. We have used our HP DesignJet 430 plotter almost on a daily basis for the past 7-8 yrs and it and the HP40 cartridge have served us well. June 21, 2014
