To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I typically purchase my ink online because it is more economical than in store. This time was different because upon arrival, I opened the first ink cartridge and immediately got an error code and could not print. Knowing my Cannon printer VERY well (I’ve had it for several years), I ultimately decided to try opening the other pack of ink. Defeated, in went the other new ink cartridge in the 2 pack and immediately I was able to complete my print job. After trouble shooting the printer, I was able to determine the code was that I had a dud ink cartridge... which stinks cause now I’m out money and can’t return just (1) of a (2)-pack. Very disappointed for a grad student nearing graduation supporting a family of 5 who has never needed to be more “thrifty” than before.
Recently installed aftermarket ink from “Remandom” in a printer I’ve used for years. Lo and behold, the flashing fault indicators lit up like a Christmas tree and it wouldn’t print. So I tried to remove the ink cartridges and found they were made for one way installation with a tab that prevented their removal!! WTF!?! Yes, it’s true. I now couldn’t install another ink even if I wanted to. I unplugged the machine and proceeded to try and poke, prod, lever and wedge the offending inks out. Couldn’t do it. Don’t EVEN try to disassemble a printer. I promise it’ll never go back together (and function). So, thanks to “Remandon” I’ve been forced to replace my printer. AND give away the additional backup inks I had for it because it’s replacement uses different inks. Lesson is stick to OEM inks and learn to refill them. They may cost more but replacing your printer is costlier AND aggravating.
I like to tell you why would I spend $42 on ink that I need to use and share it with someone I shared your prices with people but I’m not gonna share my ink with people really good product for the price I got it at thank you
I bought this 2 pack so I would have a refill when I needed a replacement for my printing. I can not believe these were new ink cartridges.......the printing was so light I had to recheck to see that I had actually replaced the cartridge. The 2nd "new" cartridge was not much better. What a waste of my money.....money that I can't afford to waste . I truly feel that I deserve a refund.
Asking how well the longevity is of this print cartridge is doing when it has only been in printer two weeks is a bit too soon. Let's wait a bit and then let me review it. As for buy for money, that's fine, and print quality, that too is great. B. Belliveau
One of the two-cartridges was completely out of ink! When we opened the pack, we noticed that the little tab was missing from one of the ink cartridges, and when installed it would not print at all. The other cartridge was fine, but pretty disappointed to only get one that works!
Often the very ink you need is the one the stores are out of ! I have tried refills and off brands and they work for a while. When I had a problem, I ended up having to buy name brand so I'm a believer now. Saves money and headaches in the long run.
I first used regular (not XL) and got very few prints, so paid more for the XL cartridge. Not many more copies. I can't believe how quickly it runs out! Seems like a lot of money for very few copies. I just got he printer so wanted to use the genuine Canon, but might try an off band for less money.
