    Historically, we have had poor results when using generic inks. Typically the ink nozzels clog because we infrequently do any printing. Using factory branded inks we have never had this problem with extended use. As a result, we spend about 2/3 the cost of a brand new printer to purchase the branded inks. Thankfully, we do not need to print too often so staying with the branded inks makes more sense for us to extend the life of the printer. While I'm sure this ink would have pleased Gutenburg, the price would have made him take a hammer to our inkjet and return to his press. Keep an eye on the price per milliter between the XL and standard cartridges. Currently the XL is priced at .81¢ per ml, and the standard is .79¢ per ml, so at these rates it is less expensive to purchase the standard cartridge. To calculate the price per ml, simply divided the total cost by the ml per cartridge, 15 ml for standard, and 22 ml for XL.

    Canon ink cartridges are great & easy to install

    I own a Canon Pixma MG7520 Printer purchased on 4/28/2015. I needed a replacement ink cartridge, a Canon 251 Gray, that I purchased at Best Buy and I am reviewing here. My printer performs flawlessly, and a large part of that is that I always use authentic Canon replacement ink cartridges. The ink cartridges last long enough for me. I do a light amount of printing, 5 - 20 pages each week. So each individual color ink cartridge will last me anywhere from 6 months up to one year. The Canon ink cartridges are easy to install without making any mess at all. Best Buy usually has the Canon ink cartridges in stock, and they are fairly priced. It's a combination that works well for me: Buying Canon replacement ink cartridges at Best Buy when I need them.

    Canon printers deserve only Canon approved ink

    Don't be fooled by 'off-brand' inks purported to be compatible with Canon printers. There is a perfectly good reason to use only Canon brand ink cartridges. A quality printer deserves a quality ink, manufactured and recommended by Canon! You spent the money to buy the 'best' printer, keep your printer performing at its best. It's not worth the pennies you'll save to chance the repair expenses, if and when the 'off-brand' ink fouls your printer's performance.

    This card has a very fast write speed ,which does not cause a break in the action. I have a Canon 6D and this captures all of the moments seamlessly. I used a 40MB/S card before for shooting a HD video and after 30 seconds or so it could no longer record. I did not experience that problem with this card and was able to record for 20minutes straight. I think the max time is 29minutes before the camera breaks it into two clips. I did not have to record that long so I could not say for sure

    I owned an HP printer, actually a couple of them, and switched over to Canon because the printer itself offered a few features that the others didn't when I was shopping for a new one. The first thing I noticed when I started printing was the quality of the picture was better than HP. The second thing is how long the cartridges last. I kept thinking when is this thing gonna run out of ink. Lasts way longer than HP print cartridges

    Needed for the Canon printer to work

    This ink is needed for the printer. Although there is a bulk package with all the colors, for some reason, this grey color is the only one missing in the bulk package. Very annoying that it needs to be purchased separately, and it is also as expensive as the bulk package. Canon needs to rethink their pricing because the ink is too expensive.

    Have a printer... need ink

    Anyone who owns and uses a printer will need ink. This cartridge seems pretty small and I do not know how long it will actually last. Some cartridges are available in an XL size, but only may be available in select colors. This is a new printer for me and I'm not sure how long these ink cartridges will last. The cartridges seem much smaller than my old cartridges but at least they are cheaper.

    Well, grey was a bit of a surprise and I was a little worried that Best Buy wouldn't stock it, but there it was in the ink aisle. Would've been even better if it came in one of the larger ink packs with the full complement of colors, but being an oddball color like grey, it probably won't run out at the same rate as the others. So yeah, it's grey ink. It clicks into place neatly and works just fine.
