Amazonked: Did I Get Ink, or Inka-Dinka-Doo’d?

My multifunction inkjet printer shut down because it needed more ink, so I said to myself:

“Myself, why spend to get Name-Brand Ink when I can get three times the amount of ink for 1/2 the price from China?”

Let’s see: Here’s a photo of the ink I’m already using in the printer, made by a company called “MIROO”. It’s worked great so far, I’ll just reorder more of it from Amazon: (click to enlarge the image)

And here’s what happened when I received my ink a few days later (click to enlarge the image):

Ordered one brand of ink, but got another brand?

The ink cartridges have the same labels as those from a number of other Chinese vendors selling printer ink, so maybe they’re all using ink from the same 5,000 gallon bucket of ink and packing it into their own box. However, it looks like the only thing “MIROO” about the ink I got was the label slapped onto someone else’s box filled with generic ink.

I’m not saying the ink cartridges won’t work in my printer – they’ll probably work just fine. When I contacted the Seller they did say the ink cartridges would fit in my printer and offered a refund if I wanted to return them: But, they didn’t mention why the product they sent didn’t match the product in their listing.

So, did I get the correct ink… or, did I get “Inka-Dinka-Doo’d”? ;-)

Thanks for Reading!
