    I always used to just buy any printer without consideration of the lifetime ink supply cost. But after at least 6 different printers that literally sucked the carts dry after what always seemed like far too few print jobs, lately I've given more consideration into the actual operating costs of the printer, and not just the enticing "sale" price. Once I got a great deal on a very nice laser printer for just $99.00!' Only to find out less than 2 months later that the toner cartridge cost a whopping $200! So anyhow, the new Canon Pixma Series appear to offer a perfect blend of affordable initial cost for the printer AND the required carts , by Canon, also available at a decent, affordable price. I also REALLY APPRECIATE that Canon ink carts have the small LED Indicator lights built right into the carts to assure you that they have been placed securely and correctly when you install them. VERY COOL FEATURE that really does help even if it seems gimmicky. The way you have to do the install by feel, especially if you have big hands making for tight quarters, it's nice to receive the visual confirmation that you installed each of the 5 carts correctly! I highly recommend purchasing the Canon brand ink. No matter what you do decide to purchase when it comes time for that first or subsequent ink purchase, steer VERY CLEAR of the "For Dummies" line of ink carts (yes, they have even gotten into selling ink too!) as those carts are WORTHLESS!!!

    These ink cartridges are very easy to replace that's their one redeeming quality. On the other hand they seem to just "dry out" if not used all at once. For instance the box claims you can print X amount of pages or X amount of photos but I have never reached those numbers not even close to them. When I get a new set if I print a bunch of photos or pages all at once I get a fair amount of items printed not what the box claims but a fair amount. Now if I print only a few items then wait a month or so it almost always tells me I'm out of ink. It just blows my mind for the price of these things that I will only get 10 to 20 photos and a handful of pages printed if I use my printer when I want to. To me its just not worth the price anymore. I have already started looking for a new printer so I can drop the costly cartridges.

    I went to my Best Buy to get some ink for my thirsty Canon printer. The selection of ink wasn't what I expected, and that made me pay close attention to what I was seeing. I've owned this printer for a number of years, and have never had issues getting ink. In order to get the variety of ink that I needed - Best Buy didn't provide a single package (something that Fry's and Office Depot do provide). I started to walk to the register and then noticed that the package was "different". Save yourself a trip - look online, and shop carefully. What I needed was in the store, but I had to buy TWO different items. Going forward, I'll order online early - and keep ink available.

    Installation of backup camera

    Recently purchased Garmin backup camera BTL-30 and Nuvi with wireless connection. Wanted professional installation of camera. Although installation took a little longer than expected, the work was done right. Price was less than originally quoted and significantly less than other local Automotive Radio & Electronic store. I would recommend them to anyone. Only downside was confusing series of phone prompts when I tried to return a call to department to talk with technician and to verify that installation was complete. (It would help to be given extension number or choice of menu prompts to call installation department when I left my car with them.) It is helpful to have an extra view when backing up or parking.

    This is the best way to go for ink replacement. I have tried the knock-offs and no name brands that were cheaper, but you never get the amount of copies and quality that you do from the Cannon brand. Also it is recommended for my Cannon printer so I know I'm getting the best match possible. Don't go with imitation brands, It will cost more in the long run. Also, being a best buy card holder I got free shipping and 15% off!. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it still runs out fairly quick even though I make very few copies and I guess the printer is made that way so you keep buying ink. I still send my photos out so I can save on ink costs.

    Still too expensive

    Unfortunately for me this package makes you buy a black cartridge that lasts a long time but doesn't give you the gray cartridge which doesn't. I do 99% photos and the black will last forever while the yellow, magenta, and cyan is sucked down at an alarming rate along with the gray. In order to take advantage of this "bargain" price on the colored inks I have to buy the black which I don't really use. If you do about 50-50 documents and photos it might be a better deal. Still, I wish they would add the gray to the other colors in a package and not make you buy the large black ink if you don't need it.

    I love my Canon MX892 printer and its high-quality printed output. The Canon 225/226 inkpots are easy to use and i have never had leakage or gotten ink-smeared while changing out tanks. My only problem with this product is that it provides me with four out of the five tanks I need, so I must buy an additional tank, and that, as a business user, I consistently use more black ink than color. I end up with extra yellow and magenta, even though I set my printer to print in color whenever it is available. Availability of single 225 black tanks at my local Best Buy would help to alleviate that problem.

    The printer companies really got over on all of us good a few years ago when they decided to start making multi-tasking printers for a very cheap price. For $150 you can no get a color printer that also scans, prints, faxes and copies. The big downside is that these printer constantly needs to get new cartridges which costs $15.99 each and you need all 4 different colors to get it to work properly. You are spending $58.99 every few months to get refills on these things which will have spending $500-$1000 easy depending on how long you stick with the printer.

    Canon Printer Cartridges

    Ink is ink, but how Canon packages this combination is not to my liking. The three main colors are ok, but the printer has a black ink cartridge also in the smaller size like the colored ones. Why only include the big black ink cartridge? Put ALL the cartridges together. Plus, the cost of ink is outrageous! When I first bought the printer, Canon advertised the cartridges as being economical, they have gone way up in price! They don't last long either.

    Ink colors do not run out at once, so why force a bulk purchase? Go back to selling individual cartridges. Your sales person talked me into buying this printer. It does a great job printing photos. Buying the small ink cartridges in a combined package, when I only need two colors is annoying. You even charge a slightly higher price for the annoyance of buying cartridges I do not need until some time in the future. If I use a lot of yellow, why do you force me to buy multiple blues I do not need yet?

    It would be perfect if BLACK 226 is also included

    My printer (PIXIMA MX882) requires 4 226 cartridges (cyan, yellow, magenta & blank) and 1 Black 225 cartridge. Unfortunately, this bundle does not include the Blak 226 cartridge, which I need to buy separately. I'm not sure what the needs are for other Canon printers, but it would make MX882 users' lives so much simpler if there is a bundle that includes all the cartridges needed. The cartridges are very easy to use.

    Not much to say other than that this is the way to buy the inks as its slightly cheaper this way than buying them individually. Your going to need each color eventually so why not save some money and buy this multipack. Couple that with earning MyBestbuy (formerly Reward Zone) points along with the members ink discount promotion and you can't do much better. As for the inks themselves they are of great quality. Photo prints on my Canon MX882 rival prints from my very high-end Canon photo printer.

    Missing Cartridge is a Hassle

    Ink is ink, and so there is not a great deal to say in a review. The biggest issue I have, is that my Canon printer requires two black cartridges and this does not include the smaller cartridge. Unfortunately, that has to be purchased separately which is slightly frustrating and expensive. The good thing is, that the cartridges give you quite a bit more ink after the low ink light comes on, so make sure you don't change them out until you see a change on your prints.

    These cartridges are very easy to install in my Canon Pixma printer. I like that they come in a package set, though my printer also takes the small black cartridge and the grey cartridge, so I have to buy those separately. My only problem with these cartridges is that the ink doesn't seem to last long, and for the amount of ink, the price seems a bit steep, but so it is with all ink cartridges! Otherwise, they do their job, and haven't caused me any problems.

    I have used these inks to reproduce brochures and photographs as well as ordinary printing. The colors are beautiful. I have also used the inks for ordinary copies, choosing black rather than color copy on my printer. Very happy with those results as well. The inks are very easy to take out and install, too, and I can pick the inks up at the store if I need a replacement that day. I wish printer ink wasn't so expensive, but I haven't found a better deal than Best Buy's.

    I started using the Canon color inkjet set in January 2012 when I bought the MG-8120 printer. The color inkjet cartridges do a wonderful job in printing color photos, especially 4x6" snapshots. I'm pleased with not only the color reproduction, but also how easy it is to replace used cartridges. The included software makes it easy to know when a given cartridge needs replacing. The inkjets last through a ream or two of printer paper.

    I was in need to get my printer working to get a project completed within only a couple of hours. I was able to go directly to a near by Best Buy store. I inquired with the customer assistance personnel at the entrance and was directed to the location of the product. Within less than 5 minutes I was on may way back home and got the job done with time to spare. The product was easy to install and worked excellent.

    This ink lasts me WAY longer than the ink cartridges I used with my old Lexmark printer. Not only does it last a lot longer than the other, but the cartridges are nowhere near as expensive, AND the quality of my printouts are EXCELLENT! Even on the fast or quick print option, my printouts look better than my stuff ever did when I was using the Lexmark on the high quality print function. I am SO pleased with this ink!

    A "Must Have" for my Canon Printer

    Although these ink cartridges work just fine and are a "must have" for my Canon Printer, my only complaint is that these ink cartridges are so expensive and last such a short time, but that's not the fault of the cartridges, it's just how all ink jet printers use up ink. I do believe that buying multiple cartridges in one package like this is less expensive than buying individual ink cartridges.

    I buy a lot of ink to print photos, and I've found that the ink seems to run out about the same time in the cartridges so I don't end up with several of one color while running out of another, though occasionally I'll have to buy a single of one to"catch up". The only thing I would like better would be to have a black 226 cartridge in the same box, along with the 225. That's one I always have to buy separately.
