Not for the thrify
The lexmark X5650, which uses this cartridge, is a very nice product. However, it is an ink guzzler. I don't print much, yet my cartridge only lasted one month. (I was also using the companion black ink cartridge, No. 37, at the same time.) Its no secret that they give away these machines to get you hooked on their inks. And the kicker? It rejected my refill inks. At best prices, I will be spending $400 per year on inks! The machine knows that its a refilled cartridge, and the pop-up reads "empty."
My advice? Buy a refitted used machine that will accept LDProducts compatible cartridges. I do with my other printer, and I spend about $60 per year using LDProducts compatibles.
