    I already had to replace 1 of these in my printer and I went to the store to get the colors. I figured I might as well get this one too but they only had the 2-pack. I got it anyway. During printing it needed one. So, it's gone thru a whole one of these and has just now had to replace the colors and one color isn't even replaced yet. Also the tiny black one hasn't needed replacing. It's confusing but I'm really glad I bought the 2-pack now.

    My Canon printer seems to be set up in a way to where only the high priced cartridges sold by Canon work. Cheap generic ones from Amazon perform poorly or dry up too fast. Thankfully, I have little need to print documents today. These Canon cartridges are over priced and don't last long.

    Don't Care For Canon's Ink Usage Strategy

    My Canon Printer contains two black cartridges and three other colored cartridges. I don't understand why when one of the black cartridges runs out of ink, they don't just allow the other cartridge to supply black ink until it runs out too. No, Canon doesn't do that. They stop the printer until the cartridge is replaced. It makes no sense, since the other cartridge still has black ink!

    Just a back up.

    I got this as a back up when I purchased the printer. I am not sure when I will need the ink cartridge but when I do, hopefully it will not be dried out. I love that the cartridges cost less than the ones I used on my old HP All-In_One 13 year old printer. I probably should have gotten color back ups as well, but I figured I would use more black ink than colors.

    We had two previous versions of the Canon Pixma printers and LOVED them. This MG5420 sucks up the ink, takes FOREVER to print and sounds like a box of CHEAP plastic parts when readying for printing.....By far NOT worth the money we paid for it. We've never gone through ink like this before.

    too expensive, the ink prices seem to more costly every time I buy refills, i.e.; $35.00, $55.00, now nearly $60.00 not even HIGH YIELD CAPACITY - somebody is getting paid well - NOT happy with this product, wish there was a universal DIY refill kit for it

    I have only printed around 300 pages and all the ink supply levels drop quickly. I gets costly buying this ink. I actually unplugged the printer and went bought a another printer that is designed to print a ton of material. And I am only printing text, not photos.

    Costly for a small cartridge

    The quality of this Canon cartridge is excellent, but it does not hold enough ink for the cost. But, if that's what your great Canon printer uses, it's worth the cost. The print quality and ease of installation is worth it if you need good quality results.

    Not Impressed with Canon's ink

    Canon makes inexpensive ink cartridges but I am not impressed with the longevity of the ink. Probably costs you just as much in the end. If you print a lot of photos, the colors are brilliant but I am not sure Cannon ink is your best buy.

    I would never buy ythis again. I would get the one that is labeled XL. This lasted less than a month and i use it sparingly. I asked the difference in size and the salesperson shrugged his shoulders. I learned by myself.

    this cartridge is VERY easy to install. I have been having problem with the printer, though- poor print quality and alignment. Canon is sending me a new printer -hopefully problem is with the printer not the ink cartridges.

    I'm over the printer thing but this model actually has a lot of nice bells and whistles for a good price. The ink cartridge is just that, it's a solid replacement when you run out of black ink. B

    Very good product and very easy to install, especially for an older, non-geek person, but it is expensive and runs out too soon and requires too frequent replacement.

    Our printer goes through ink like my daughter goes through ...everything! ;-) The colors are good, and last fairly well provided they are not left out in bright sunlight.

    It's printer ink. You have no choice but to buy the ink that fits your printer. Wish it lasted longer. It is a high quality printer though.

    I don't do a lot or printing but I have to replace the ink way to often. Don't know if I should blame the printer or the ink cartridge.

    If you have the printer that requires me, then you have the printer that requires me. And so you have to buy me. You really have no choice.

    I keep saying it: this kind of ink needs to be replace too soon. I don't even use it and is already gone. Just a few prints and that's it.

    Not much to review. It's ink. It works. I'm glad you can just buy individual cartridges as opposed to packs with cartridges you don't want.

    Unbelievable how much ink costs if you buy brand new. Need to figure out a good printer that will use generic or re-fillable ink cartridges.
