    Like razors and razor blades, in ain't the razor that is expensive it's the blades. I have a log running anger at the cost of ink cartridges. If one has only moderate printing use then most people can live with the cost. If, on the other hand, you do a more than a moderate amount of printing, or need hard copies to preserve content for an extended period of time---say for posterity or one's grandchildren---or if there is a need to print photos or color content, then suddenly the cost of $100---$150 printer is amplified to an annual cost level that broaches exasperation. Or....downright expensive. There was a time when Costco offered a reasonably priced refill plan. There was also a time when one could purchase refill kits for the do-it-yourselfers. That cut the printing costs by as much as five times less. Ah, but Canon programmed its new cartridges to not respond to refills. So one has to buy and buy and buy and look for on-line deals or wait for Best Buy to put them on special sale. (Best Buy is the cheapest place to purchase inkjet cartridges.). So....Yes. Canon makes a good inkjet printer and separate cartridge, and Best Buy is my preferred purveyor but it's death by a thousand cuts.

    I needed an air printer to print from all of my iproducts so my husband bought the canon mx920. This printer, unlike my old one uses 5 ink cartridges. that was a bit off-putting, but i really do not spend more on ink than i did before, and i use a lot of this ink. Once I purchased the XL size and to my dismay, it did not last any longer than the regular size. For clarification, I did not purchase the XL from best buy. I bought it online. Now, however, I will just run to best buy to make my ink purchases. The cost runs about the same no matter where I purchase it so... And with best buy rewards, I usually end up paying next to nothing for the ink.

    I used to do the refills or no-name brands, but had issues with them clogging my head. Granted, this may be due to temperature/environment and/or frequency of printing, I've never really had an issue with OEM cartridges. The downside to this is that I don't think the OEM cartridges print as many pages as the aftermarket, but at least my print head doesn't clog. For an overpriced (because of manufacturer, not the store) brand of ink, it does the job well!

    Good ink but goes too quickly.

    The ink is of a good quality but does not last very long and it is not inexpensive, either. I recently changed all of my cartridges even though I do not do much printing or very often. Yet, once again, I am being prompted to change some of the cartridges again. I mentioned this to the CS Manager who assisted me when I last made a purchase at the Best Buy store.

    Canon ink does a fine job but don't expect these little cartridges to last very long. The software showing how much is left is a bit misleading. First half seems to last a long time. the second half vanishes in a few days or weeks, depending on use. When possible force the printer to keep printing even if it says it is out. There is usually more ink left.

    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.

    Ink jet cartridge for Canon MG5520 printer

    Easy to load into printer. A required cartridge for the operation of the Canon printer in addition to black, cyan, magenta and yellow ink cartridges which all together is rather expensive. But I'm happy with the combo printer, scanner, copier which works very well. Purchased at my local Best Buy store which saves on S&H charges.

    Having bought the four color cartridges for my printer I also had to buy this separate larger black ink cartridge. The total cost of the complete set of replacement cartridges is more than you can pay for a new printer. I might just switch out the printer next time to one that just uses two larger cartridges.

    Reliable / Quality / Wish for higher yields

    We've been generally satisfied with the printer and it's ink. We've been using this device and ink for about two years and haven't had any real issues. Canon builds a great product. Only drawback is the ink cartridge yield. Wish the cartridges lasted longer. Although we do use heavy for business and occasionally photos.

    Surprisingly good audio and great battery life

    This color Mini Bluetooth wireless speaker was my first Bose product, and it sounds great in a small package. Battery life exceeded 9 hours for our listening volume. The range from my iPad was a bit short when going through walls, sometimes less than 20 feet. So, if you need to be far from your Bluetooth source, think twice on this one.

    I love my pixma printer, and the genuine Canon ink works wonderfully. In the store the only options are to buy one cartridge of the 250, or a combo pack with 2 cartridges of the 250 XL. I would love the option to purchase 1 cartridge of the 250 XL. Aside from that, the ink works great, and the quality of the printouts is perfect.

    What can I say, it's an ink cartridge

    I would say that this cartridge is good, it has a lot of ink in it. I think the packaging is a little cumbersome for just a cartridge and there are too many small pieces of plastic that still need to be collected to throw away. But other than that, this is fantastic ink that doesn't bleed much at all.

    These are good ink cartridges, but they do leave something to be desired on their longevity. Granted, we are printing a lot more recently, but it seems like at least one ink cartridge always needs to be replaced. I would definitely recommend getting the XL tanks instead.

    My dad needed to replace this particular black cartridge for his newer Canon all in one printer. I went to Best Buy because of the selection, and to my surprise I received a discount because I'm a member. This is a good replacement, and the quality is just fine.

    I am consistently happy with Canon products. That being said, I think that all printer ink should last longer. The product itself is of fine quality, but it seems it is a bit pricey to print at home at current prices of ink and for how long the ink lasts.

    Never had any problems with installation! The LED lights up when correctly installed is a good feature! I wish there was more ink in the reg. size cartridges for the money.

    Uses lots of ink. The Cannon 250 Black doesn't drain as fast as expected. The quality of Cannon Inks is great. The quality of the printout is great. The quantity of ink used seems to be somewhat more than the previous Cannon printers that I have owned.

    Work great and I can print again - price is only reason for no 5 starts but I am sure I don't have to tell you that. Was much better when they had the 15% off for elite members special, don't know I will buy again at full price.

    Cannon MX922 is a good printer, producing good quality products. It is easy to operate. The cost of the printer is reasonable. But, the printer consumes inks excessively. Maintaining adequate ink cartridges are relatively expensive.
