I can with absolute certainty. No.27 and 56 are HP black ink cartridges. No 56 is the big brother of No 27. As you say 56 contains more ink. No 28 and No 57 are the colour twins. again No57 contains much more ink.

You will find that the 27 is the low capacity version of the 56 [ie 27 contains less ink]. If you are self-refilling, then the capacity will be minimal.Low capacity cartridges are usually sold with new printers for trial purposes.

Low capacity run out faster,and that's how printer and cartridge manufacturers make their money.

On Choice Stationery both the 27 and 56 are listed at the same price £11.98 so obviously go for the 56. The 57 is listed on Choice at £13.99
