    Where's the gray?

    The bundle of 6 separate inks required to print good pictures from my Canon 7120 printer is putting me in the poor house. Most printers need only 3 primary colors and black. In addition to these four colors, my printer requires a second black and a gray. Photography is my hobby and I print a lot of pictures . I like my canon printer but i'm always looking for more economical sources of ink. Finally, the store in my town (Cambria) discontinued carrying this series of Canon inks because the company apparently requires a high quota of sales before they will wholesale this product line to small businesses. Now I must travel 20 miles to the nearest outlet stocking this series or order 2 or three series ahead online from Canon. HP inks are more accessible and less expensive. Bottom line is Canon's sales strategy is driving consumers away for their products

    This is the 2nd Lenovo YOGA 710 computer I have purchased in a year. I purchased one for my son last December and we discussed issues that he has had compared to other reviews that I read. He agreed about the 'shift key' issue, however, he stated he has gotten used to it and doesn't bother him. He uses it for college and his on-line courses. Very happy with it to do his course work. He did have to replace the Mother Board after he had it for 6 months. I purchased the protection plan, so it didn't cost him. I'm getting used to the touch screen, It is very sensitive and I need to 'learn' how to work it without accidentally touching screen.

    I have tried to go the "refill" route, trying to be more cost effective. Well, I returned to buying the canon name brand intended ink as they don't bleed, aren't watery, always last a decent amount of time and in the long run, end up being best bang for my print. I asked a buddy to purchase this multi pack for me, and he searched 4 different "bargain" stores, even online and OF COURSE, they were at Best BUy (like I tod him in the first place lol). Thank You Canon and Best Buy for always having what I need when I need it

    Works Great Everytime

    Good ink every time! My printer says it needs ink early (frustratingly early) but I just ignore it until the printer will not run. I swear the inks last longer after the "Ink is low message" than before! If I followed the "ink low" message, I'd be extremely frustrated that the ink doesn't last long, but since I run it until the printer refuses to print, it lasts a very long time and I am really happy w it. Much better than my last printer. I do always keep spare ink on my shelf bc I never know when the printer will refuse to keep printing after the low ink msg -- a very long time, but unpredictable. I really do like this printer and its ink though!!

    Great printer/ ink runs out fast

    I love my canon mx922. It is reliable. Prints fast. Great quality. Paper doesn't jam. Be extra careful to take paper out carefully if it does jam. My last canon printer wouldn't work at all and had to be serviced at a price higher than buying a new printer because a small piece of paper was stuck inside somewhere. Be careful about turning it on and off many times. It will use up your ink without printing anything out due to the print heads shooting ink to clean themselves when turned on or off. The quality of the printout outweighs these defects. Also the reliability of printing when you need it. Epson and others just don't compare.

    I search and search trying to find a better deal when purchasing ink for my printer. Well I don't have time to search any longer. The best deal has always been with Best Buy when replacing my multi-pack ink cartridges. If you do find it for a cheaper price, their Price Match Policy is there to save the day. I use these original manufacturers cartridges to keep it simple. These were made for the printer. You don't want no name replacement parts for your car so why would you want them for your great printer?

    Good As Far As It Goes

    The ink provides good quality printed products. The cartridges are simple to load into the printer itself. They have convenient indicator lights that lets the user know the general status of the ink level in the cartridge. I do not know the technology behind the distribution of colors in a print job, however, I print 90% of the time in black and white. Yet the color cartridges drain very rapidly. I would have expected the color cartridges to last much longer than has been the case.

    Vibrant Colors

    We use our Canon All-In-One for home use and couldn't be happier. Prior to purchasing this printer we had a Kodak printer that was dreadful. I was very surprised and pleased with the separate ink cartridges for each color, (our Kodak had one large cartridge for all primary colors so if say yellow ran out you had to replace the whole cartridge regardless of how much blue and red remained in the tank). We were also very please with the beautiful vibrant colors and the fact that the ink doesn't completely saturate the paper, making it dry lumpy.

    Not Worth The Price

    Considering the cost of Canon ink, these cartridges are no bargain. I don't think the colors are very vibrant, and the tanks empty amazingly quickly! Every time I turn around, it says I am out of ink. And after every print job, the printer runs a cleaning cycle, using up even more ink. I would call it a scam, and I know I am not alone in my feelings. They could give away the printer for free and still make a large profit on the cartridges. Lastly, my local Best Buy doesn't maintain much stock of the 251 series.

    The family all went river rafting. My husband took the kinds and grandkids. He was able to pull the stills off of a Go-Pro and they printed wonderful pictures with such colorful clarity I felt like I had been there. Thank you for giving my husband the ability to give brilliant packages of prints from the Grand Canyon trip. They will cherish that trip and pictures to show their own grandchildren.

    There really isn't a lot to say about this ink aside from the fact that the colors produced are accurate and prints made with it looks great and last an awfully long time. I know that Epson seems to be the leader in printing and ink solutions but I have used Canon printers and inks for close to decade now and consider them to be a better overall value with none of trhe reliability issues that I sometimes hear about from friends that have gone the Epson route. Buy a Canon printer ... use Canon inks ... be happy. :-)

    Disappears Fast

    I only print in Black ink, but the colored ink seems to seep out, nonetheless. After replacing all the cartridges, I printed 100 + pages of tax return docs in black only. According to the cartridge ink level sensor, all the color cartridges dropped close to 1/2 ink remaining. Not sure you can trust any of the no name competition for my Canon mx922 printer, so I feel stuck with this printer and ink combo.

    ink needed for printing pictures

    The ink is good in printer, my complaint is that some of the Best Buy stores don't carry all the individual numbered colored ink cartridges. I don't like when I have to make two stops to get all I need. The cartridges are too small and I feel capacity in printing would be better if ink cartridges were bigger. Also don't like that the printer companies change products too often and then change size of ink cartridges so that a new printer is always needed. Same models don't always use the same size ink cartridges.

    Decent price for Genuine Canon Multi Pack Ink

    Decent price through Best Buy on line if compared to in store prices, but still too expensive for this product. CANON must be making a killing by selling their Ink cartridges. Our CANON printer for instance needs 5 full cartridges at all times, if 1 of them happens to be empty then the printer stops printing. We should have done a better job making our new printer purchase and a better product research. We would not recommend our kind of CANON printer because it is too expensive to operate.

    Great Inkjet Cartridge Multi-Pack Value!

    These Canon Inkjet Printer Ink Cartridge Multi-Pack bundles offer great value. They're usually priced slightly lower than the cost of purchasing individual cartridges or smaller multi-pack sets and they frequently have the added bonus of packages of free 4X6 photo paper. I've tried all the major inkjet printer brands, but I prefer Canon for it's bold, true colors, darker blacks and well-balanced gray tones.

    Ink Okay But Tough To Find

    I was stunned to find that the ink aisle was a merchandizing mess. The Canon cartridges weren't where their labels said they were. I almost left, but then decided to look at the jumbled mess of boxes on a shelf above the printers. I finally found something that had what I needed, although I had to buy a package of four cartridges, which irritated me. Canon seemed to be especially messy, and short on product. I will NOT come back to BB for ink, that's for sure!

    The price is not too bad for this product. Love that I can change each color individually and they print magnificent photos and documents. I will say however, that these don't seem to last that long. I only print items occasionally (once/wk) and my child might print something once a week and it seems like I am changing these cartridges frequently. And we aren't printing giant projects or documents, so while the price isn't too expensive I wonder if I am getting the most bang for my buck.

    We purchased 2 Sony 4HTVs - one for the family and one for just the kids. One TV is 65" and the other is 55". The 65" is now our main viewing TV, and the Sony lives up to it's reputation. Beautiful graphics - highly defined picture - incredible color. We also had it mounted & installed by the Geek Squad. Beautiful job!! Highly recommended if you are looking for a TV that doesn't break the bank, but still offers an incredible picture. 3D is amazing, too. A must try!!

    The only negative I could mention is that I think the amount of ink in the canister is less than it used to be, but that certainly isn't Best Buy's fault...but the quality is wonderful and colors are sharp and vivid. I love that you can change out a particular color when it runs out rather than only one large cartridge and having to discard remaining ink just because one color runs out. Best Buy's price is better than anywhere I have checked.

    Quality product with easy installation

    Most will agree that, for the most part, ink is ink. I've had zero challenges with any of these purchased for my Canon printer, but what I really like is the quality of the packaging (minimizing damage), the sturdy design of each cartridge, and the extreme ease of installation. Once you hear that nice click of it connecting in the chamber, you know all is good for the life of the cartridge. The ink quality is (in my opinion) true and vibrant.
