Expensive, but worth it!!
I know this OEM ink is expensive, but the quality of this ink can’t be matched by the NONOEMS. If you care about the quality of your prints, this the way to go. I have used all kinds of after market products, and no matter what they claim about their quality, they just can’t compare to oem. I also ended up with clogged print heads and at least 1 trashed printer. Photo output with this ink is gorgeous, and the color tones are just right. You also save a few bucks with this 4 pack.
OEM Canon Ink
I moved up to a MP620 from a previous Canon printer. While I’ll admit with the previous post that the ink wells are smaller, but they also use less drops of ink than my older model and gives out a MUCH better picture. And if you install the software that comes with the MP620, it will pop up showing a low cartridge, then click the exclamation above the tank, it will give you the part number needed. You can even click the ‘about ink’ button and will give you a nice large printable list of the ink part numbers.
I’ll admit I still use local print shops for large quantities of 4×6 images, but single 4×6 or any other I can print with very pleasing results.
NOTE: The Canon Photo print software gives a more true to life color than either Photoshop or Lightroom. I know something needs to be changed in the Adobe software, but I haven’t figured it out yet.
Careful! Are you sure you want this?
This is exactly what it says it is and it performs correctly. But it isn’t what I thought it was when I ordered it, which is the large Black ink tank needed for printing page after page of text. This is the little tank used for enhancing the black level on photos. How could I have made such a mistake? Well, this is the CLI-221 Ink Tank and I needed the PGI-220 Ink Tank. My bad.
Canon Ink Cartridge
Excellent product. I suggest to readers that you consider using OEM products for printers. I screwed up my Canon printer using an off brand. You may go for some years with no problems using off brands and save some heavy duty money and it will pay for itself. However, if your printer fails early on because of off brand you are a loser. I have a good printer and will just pay the extra dollars. Some of my off brands were empty. Some would not work and the last batch dorked up my printer for good.
The printer costs $67, which comes with all new ink.
Replacement ink cost $60?
For $7 more, you can get a new printer with all new ink.
Only use Canon Ink in Canon Printers
So far it looks like the ink is lasting a bit longer than I thought it might based on other reviews of the MP980 printer and these ink tanks. I do a lot of Birthday and greeting cards. Some of the cards have quite a lot of graphics and it is still chugging along. My former printer had the printer head go bad due to my purchasing non-Canon ink which was supposed to work just as well. The printer head costs almost as much as the printer itself. It’s just not worth going cheap. I really prefer Canon printers so I’ll stick to their ink. At least they have separate inks for the 3 primary colors and two black tanks.
Canon inks always seem to run out fast-I very rarely need perfect copies so I have set my ink properties for fast (draft)-its usually good enough for my purposes.
Since I rarely use colors I only need to order the black ink cartridges for
my canon MP620 pixma.
As usual Amazon does an incredible job-They state that free delivery (over $ 25.00) will take 5-7 business days but I always seem to receive it in less than that.
