    Inkjet printers seem to be given away with purchase or sold very inexpensively as a basis for continuing to sell overpriced ink cartridges, until the printers die. I bought my Canon MX922 at Best Buy, 2 years ago (I believe I wrote a review for it). I'm more happy with this all-in-one, than I have been with any other printer I have owned. The ink is still outrageously priced and doesn't last long enough- but prices are consistent with other retailers. I'm a DIY person, but I'm not into refilling my own ink carts. I guess it's kind of a necessary evil. The only thing I can add is that Best Buy does have a rewards program for purchases, price matching to any advertised, local, brick and mortar store AND they do offer an expired cartridge credit program towards purchase of new cartridges... but check the details as there are some sticky rules. I keep forgetting to bring the expired carts with me, when I need to run out and buy a new one in a panic. Now I have a small box full of them in my car. What else can I say- it's Ink made for my printer. They seem to be consistently functional, they just don't last as long as I'd like and seem dry out without use. I think the printer industry as a whole can do better than the American Car manufacturers parts business.... otherwise I recommend this product.

    I was able to rather quickly order & pick up this combo ink cartridge pack from my local Best Buy retailer (Millenia in Orlando), but definitely not a 'best buy' regarding price . . . so I'll simply be thankful for the convenience (despite it being cheaper at some other locations, including online). HP ink is pretty easily labeled on the box to determine its age, but Canon ink is not. There is almost no way to know the 'shelf life' or if it's been overlooked for quite a while in backroom storage. That does concern me, but I've never received a combo pack that didn't work properly in my printer. Fortunate for that. The cartridge recycling program at BB is not the best in the area, but several of the alternate locations will probably have future issues as they attempt to just stay in business. I've considered some of the cartridge refilling options, but eventually choose to stick with brand new items for personal fear of leaking or printer damage (potentially negating warranty).

    service from clerk in that department was terrible ignored me and proceeded to help someone after i waited over 30 minutes at his counter,he was helping someone and left me standing there to help a younger female, i did speak with another clerk who was not in that department but brought me to customer service, the lady there was very helpful with my purchase. It should have never taken an hour to purchase one item for a color printer, my printer is great but the sales person was more concerned with chatting with a hot looking 20 yr old who was not waiting at the register for service. The product i would recommend . The lady in customer service was fantastic.

    I am using these with the Canon Pixma MX922 printer-copier-fax (wireless) printer. It uses 3 color and 2 black cartridges; one black for plain text and the other specifically for use in color documents. The color cartridges can be bought as a pack or individually if you ran out of just one color. They come in a standard and an extra-large capacity either way. These are the first cartridges I've seen that have no expiration date: if kept in their package or seated properly in the printer, they have an air-tight connection and should not dry out, fade, or otherwise mess up. That's also assuming you're storing them at a temperature you yourself are comfortable living in!

    Canon has been, for many years,a tried and true leader in the world of photography. When Canon started building the PIXMA series of printers,they, in my opinion, became the best of the best in that marketplace and this ink proves that the Best of the Best can improve upon itself and BECOME...EVEN BETTER !! How is it better? Here is why I feel it is. The colors seem more VIBRANT, almost JUMPING OFF THE PAGE. The color mix (gradient) seems much smoother and seamless . This results in a photo print that is more true to the subject or item photographed. BUT, that's MY opinion. I really feel that... WHEN YOU TRY IT..YOU'LL LIKE IT !

    I highly recommend Canon inkjet ink cartridges. I've been using Canon printers for many years and have gotten great service from them. I only use Canon branded replacement carts for my printers because they last long and produce quality documents. Text and graphic printing is always clear and bright. No smudges or lines are ever produced. They're also great for photo reproduction as well. Color reproduction is nearly perfect. Get these carts, they're worth a little extra you pay compared to refills or off-branded products.

    3pack when 4pack needed

    The ink works, or course, so not much to review there. Bought this for a mx922 which uses 4 colors to print plus a black. Why does Canon not sell an xl pack with all 4 colors in it? They sell this xl 3 pack and a 4 pack in regular size. So if you want 4 xl tanks, you have to buy this 3 pack and then the photo black color separately, which runs about $64 with bestbuy members discount. Then add $21 for the regular black XL and you're at $85 to replace all the ink in a $100 printer.

    Plus side: Sales person did a good job explaining purchse options. Ink cartridges came in various packaging configurations and sizes. Negative side: We live in a rural area and no matter how he entered our address into your computer it would not accept it as a valid address. NEVER had this problem anywhere else. You need to add an over ride for this problem. Wasted a lot of our time. Ended up using my father-in-law's address just to make a purchase and to finally get out of there.
