    Great blacks when it's not running out...

    I've had my Canon MG5220 printer for the longest now and it's still chugging along great. The ink that the printer uses is awesome also. The blacks are strong and the colors are vivid. More importantly, the presentation of color from the screen to the photo is spot on so I can expect my photos to come out looking like they do on my monitor. There's only one downside... They don't last long at all. When I print a few photos (like only two or three) and 10 or so 2-3 pages documents, it's already down 40%. I wish the cartridges were a little bigger so that way I wouldn't have to keep buying so often, but that's how Canon gets my money and time, I guess. Well, at least I can price match them on BestBuy from Amazon. Pros - Strong blacks - Not so expensive - Easy to price match Cons - Runs out fairly quickly - Not so cheap

    I seem to always be low on ink

    I know this is a review for a black ink cartridge. However, I must talk about the printer first and foremost. While our Canon printer works well, it seems to use ink at an alarming rate. I feel like I'm always buying ink for our Canon printer. The price of a single cartridge doesn't seem so high, but I'd like to get more life out of a cartridge. They sell the colored inks and a black cartridge in a bundle, but they never seem to end at the same time and I'm often having to buy individual colored cartridges. When I buy my next printer I'll be sure to read reviews about the ink and check out the price per cartridge.

    I've learned to just buy the real Canon cartridges

    After a few years of buying off-brand (cheap) ink cartridges and having all kinds of problems with smudged, unreadable printouts, I've learned to just splurge and buy the real cartridges from Canon, at least for the black ones. You might be able to get away with the cheap stuff for color. Now I have confidence that boarding passes, documents and bar codes will print cleanly. This cartridge was actually a few dollars less than listed, also had just received a 5 dollar off coupon so pretty reasonable price.

    Good ink cartridge; costs too much

    Canon ink cartridges do a fine job when used in my Canon printer. i have never had a problem with clogs or blobs of ink on my photos. The main problem with Canon ink cartridges, as with all ink cartridges, is that they are too expensive. As a result, it is always less expensive to have photos printed at Wal-Mart or Target than it is to print them myself. At home I print only photos I need in a hurry. If I don't need a print immediately I go to Wal-Mart to have photos printed.

    I've always liked the way Canon printers performed. The print and photo quality is always first rate. My only complaint is the ink cartridges are too small. My printer, MX892, uses 5 cartridges and four of them are only about 9 ml of ink, so I have to replace the cartridges quite often. Since I'm mostly retired, I don't use the printing function as often as I used to so it's easier to replace the cartridges than it is to replace the printer.

    Quality Canon ink

    Canon definitely produces great printers, and I have used about every manufacturer on the market. The photo quality is to of the line. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a perfect 5 star rating is the page yield. I think for the price of the individual cartridges the yield should be a lot better. At the cost of replacing all the ink cartridges is almost as much as just buying the printer again with all the ink with it.

    Not too bad a price, but the printer sure does go through cartridges really quickly. I think i'll get a laser printer next time. Seems Canon set their printers up to 'dump' a lot of ink each time you turn it on. I can't believe that the lengthy cleaning cycle is really necessary.

    Ink is designed for my printer

    Have been using this same ink cartridge since I purchased this Canon Pixma printer about 6 years ago. It is perfect for what I need it for. Only negative is I wish it would last longer, or if Canon would offer an alternative cartridge that would last 2 or 3 times longer, like Hewlett-Packard does.
