Top critical review
I feel I have been conned.

I specifically selected this ink cartridge believing it to be genuine and, as I wanted it to last longer than a month. I chose the XL size which should be capable of printing up to 600 pages in black ink.
As soon as I opened the large HPXL box, I was stunned to find a small sized cartridge inside.
Normally, I would have returned this item immediately. However, due to the Covid19 situation, and being unable to purchase an XL ink cartridge anywhere else I decided that, as times were hard, I would have to cut my losses as I had urgent documents that needed printing.
However, the box felt suspiciously light and once opened and inserted in the printer it printed the first page blurred. I decided to wait until my new coloured ink cartridge arrived the following day and tried again. This time the first page of black ink printed well but subsequent pages of black ink were very feint.
To date, I have only printed 5 pages in black ink and the last 4 are really feint. I seriously believe that I will be lucky if it prints up to 15 pages before running out of ink completely.
Finally, this company included NO PAPER INVOICE or return envelope or address inside the packaging. The seal around the cartridge said Malaysia.
