I need ink cartridges 57/58 and they are like $60.00 at the store.
Have you guys ever used the remanufactured ink cartridges that you find online?

Example

Its like $40.00 total, im just wondering if they work or not.
How do they remanufacture an ink cartridge.

Many places recycle ink cartridges now due to the expense of new ones. They do it at grocery stores around here. There is no reason to expect that the remanufactured ones, if done by reputable people, are not just as good as the new. The refill kits work well, too. I found ink for my HP at the $1 store and bought up their whole supply. Even my pictures still come out beautifully. But refills are not possible with all cartridges. Some use a more viscous ink and refills will run right out into your machine. Others have an internal electronic chip to prevent use after it has been emptied. I lucked out on printers. After going through many (and 5-in-1 machines), I opted for a cheap, $20 HP printer. To my friend's dismay (she just bought a $300 Canon printer), my cheapo does a much better job of printing photos on glossy paper than hers does, and that with the $1 ink.

I'd say, "Go for it!". Don't give them $60 for ink for a machine that may have been less than that.

I have tried commercially refilled HP cartridges, but the print quality was so poor I never tried it again.

Probably OK for home use but not the quality I could use for business.

It probably depends a great deal on who does the refilling. I'm sure some are better than others.
