Not a good product
It's very easy to break, I have to buy a lot because they don't last enough and it is the only one that office depot sells for my old printer, but I'm looking for another brand!

I have been receiving this " porelon " brand for about 6 months now, and it is worthless. It tears very easily.
We were getting Epson brand....but then these started coming as a sub. I used to be able to use the Epson brand in my office for about 3 weeks...this one doesn't last 3 days it seems. I just put my last one in now, and it printed 6 invoices before tearing.
I don't know if epson quit making them ? but the bad thing is, I just bought this printer less than a year ago...and now Im stuck!

I am amazed at how long these ribbon cartridges last. I have had this printer for several years and never have any problems with the ribbon.

Better than nothing
When I first started using an Epson LQ-590, I bought a bunch of "compatible" ribbons at my local office store. I quickly learned they suck pretty bad. Very short lifetime, they fall apart as the printer is printing and eventually the ribbon tears and you have to replace it.
I learned the hard way to begin using genuine Epson ribbons.
Unfortunately, it seems Office Depot has finally run out of it's stock of genuine ribbons and has replaced them with this "compatible" one.
1 week into my first replacement ribbon and it tore. The worst part is the price of these ribbons is only a few dollars less than the superior genuine ones were.
