    Separate Color Ink Cartridges Make SO MUCH SENSE!

    Almost 2 years after purchase, I'm still VERY happy with my Canon PIXMA MG5420 3-in-1 desktop printer/scanner/copier! One of my main reasons (besides just "price-point") for selecting the Canon PIXMA "MG" series 3-in-1 printer was the fact that it uses a 5 cartridge ink "system". ... I cannot tell you how many times I have had to throw out (and then pay to replace) a "Tri-Color" ink cartridge that had stopped my printer from working entirely, JUST BECAUSE one of the three colors contained within it had run dry. - It's a crummy scheme, UNLESS you are the company (no names mentioned, but I think you all know who I'm talking about) selling the "Tri-Color" ink cartridges. These Canon cartridges come VERY well sealed from the factory so that their "shelf-life" far exceeds the cartridges from that other (unnamed) manufacturer that actually punches holes in its cartridges' outer-wraps and then just tapes over the cartridge's ink dispensing plenum "reeds". - Ink cartridges that go dry just sitting on the shelf for a couple of months are something I will NOT put up with any more! AND Finally; these cartridges are PRICED RIGHT even if you don't get the 15% off for being a Best Buy "program" (f.k.a., "RewardZone") member. These cartridges, when purchased as three individual color cartridges, are STILL cheaper (by $10 to $15 or so) than buying a single "Tri-Color" cartridge from that "other" manufacturer. My ONLY suggestion is: If you print A LOT of documents OR (even more consumptive) A LOT of photographs per month, get the "XL" version of the cartridges. I'm making the non-"XL" cartridges last about 3 to (at most) 6 months, BUT I DO have a separate "stock" document printer for big multi-page print "jobs". - YOUR PARTICULAR LEVELS OF INK CONSUMPTION MAY VARY DEPENDING ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL PATTERNS OF PRINTER USEAGE.

    Shopping for printer ink refill at Best Buy is like purchasing direct from Canon, except more convenient. This purchased item is the same Canon OEM blue that would have taken 2 days for Canon to ship to my home, even with FREE shipping. The nearby location of my neighborhood BB is less than 4 minutes drive from home. I like that its price mirrors that from Canon's website, too. Applying BB's printer ink discount code made this purchase even sweeter!

    The ink is good but no longer a good buy because Best Buy took their incentive away. They gave a discount of a couple of dollars if you were a bonus point member. It only took a few dollars off but it made it a more affordable price. But since they took the incentive to buy away, you are now able to purchase anywhere at the same price. Best buy should put the discount back on.

    My cannon printer and inks are such a great asset for my business. I like that I can control the print process. Also love the quality of my prints. I really wish that the CMY inks were pigment inks, but I also realize this helps to keep some of the printing costs down. As my business grows I will move to a Cannon 100% pigment ink printer. But till then, I am very happy with my products.

    Does what an ink cartridge should do

    I use these printer ink cartridges in a Canon Pixma MX922. Since they're the same brand, I have no compatibility issues, and the ink status seems to be accurately reflected by the printer. The color produced is satisfactory. The 15% discount on ink for My Best Buy members makes the price sting of brand name printer ink a little easier to bear.

    Works well in a Canon MX922

    The ink cartridge is easy to install and the ink works great in my printer. I don't have any complaints about this at all. Pricey, yes, but all good ink is. I haven't tried any refilled cartridges in my printer since I don't want to risk damaging it. So if you have the Canon MX922 printer, I do recommend this ink.

    I hate these print tanks

    It seems like every time I go to print a picture or a document the one of the print tanks is empty or near empty. They do not seem to hold much ink. I use it in my Canon MG5520 printer. I would not recommend the printer or the ink tanks. I had a clerk tell me that people buy new printers because they are as cheap as the multiple ink tanks required.

    In the past, it was a chore to get the correct replacement ink cartridges for my printer, and I more often than not ended up with the wrong one. Enter Best Buy staff, who made sure I had the correct cartridge before I left the store! They knew what I needed and made sure that I had exactly that. Thanks to them for the help!
