Pros: These cartridges are a significant cost savings over the OE cartridges. The only reason I didn't give them 5 eggs is because they need to be tweaked to get maximum performance out of them (see below).
Cons: The first cartridges we received did not work at all in our printer. After researching the error code, we took a closer look at the cartridges and noticed some hot glue had run over the electrical contacts. We cleaned them off and the error disappeared. The next problem we encountered was the cartridge case would crack after heavy use. Comparing the cases to the OE cartridges we determined that there were some minor differences that caused the weakness. Again, hot glue proved to be the solution, but this time adding rather than removing, to beef up the strength of the cartridge in the weak area. We now just open all new cartridges when received and inspect/correct these issues, resulting in our ability to get full use out of the cartridges. Due to the significant cost savings it is well worth the small amount of effort required. And since this is a new product we are confident that Rosewill will iron out these issues.
Bottom Line: I would definitely recommend these cartridges - just make sure you examine them carefully when you get them and follow the mitigation steps outlined above under "Cons".
