    Good product that was a perfect match for my newest Canon printer. The product packaging was easy to open, and good quality to prevent any damage to the ink cartridges. All very well labeled for accurate installation, and the installation was quite easy. Thanks, Canon!! I do question the box labeling a bit, as the XL size cartridge indicated with a big red arrow does not apply to all enclosed, and that was the purpose of the online research at Best Buy site, which also indicated a price lower than the retail store . . . but the store said they could not match price since I had a recycled cartridge discount. Oh, really? The instructions on the receipt walked the team member at the register how to do it with ease. Same thing happened on last purchase, due to few being trained on how to handle the recycle plan that they encourage. Yes, I would easily recommend the product to others. I highly recommend Canon as a whole.

    Perfect except missing Grey

    I ordered what I thought was a larger black cartridge along with the other required colors. I assumed I had everything that I needed to refill the printer and stop the error message. However, I was missing a grey cartridge that I did not know was needed since I just ordered the ink number that went with my printer. I am still not sure how I get that one, but I have been using it without the grey and just ignore/override the error message. Still a good value.

    I am a fan of canon printers, but I am disappointed that they, as do the other printer manufacturers make so many different style cartridges that you cannot use "left over" cartridges once your old printer "bites the dust" with a newly purchased printer from the same manufacturer. Any remaining cartridge becomes a waste of money and becomes non-Eco friendly. Printer manufactures should consider the "green" benefit of providing customers a trade-in opportunity for print cartridges customers can no longer use for cartridges that will fit their newly purchased printer.

    Printer ink is ridiculously expensive, but...

    No matter what brand you buy, inkjet printer ink is always very expensive, so you have to try to find the best deal you can get. It usually makes sense to buy a package like this, as opposed to buying individual cartridges. This is definitely true with this ink. The only strange thing is that they don't include the gray cartridge, so you're going to have to buy that one separately. The cartridges are easy to install, and Canon does a good job of displaying the levels and warning you when they are getting low. But they're still too expensive.

    Refill for Cannon Printer

    The Cannon printer is excellent and the ink cartridge seems to last quite a while, but I was surprised when I came to buy the refill pack for my Granddaughter that I did not get an automatic percentage off my purchase. I bought this at Best Buy because when checking them out, the clerk helping me to decide mentioned that if I had my sales receipt, any time in the future when I bought refills, I would get a percentage off the purchase. This did not happen and nobody seemed to know anything about this.

    I would like to leave my review at that but...a change of printer meant a change of ink cartridge despite staying with the same brand. Gone are the ones I had bought online. All I can say is that ink is ink and these cartridges are expensive. They cost more than the printer! There is no need to pay through the nose like I did for these. Forget the name and search elsewhere. Ok why 4 stars? They didn't slop all over the place as some have done. That's about it. Ink is ink.

    More economical to purchase all 4 ink colors for my Canon Pixma Printer. Too expensive to purchase one color at a time and then you run the risk of not finding the color you need to replace. The only other color I need to purchase is the Gray XL as I print quite a few photos and the gray tweeks and brightens my photos. Would like to see a slightly lower cost as it costs $100 plus to replace the ink. Great product and I trust the Canon name and brand. Very reliable.

    This package makes it convenient and easy to find 5 of my Canon printer's ink refills, including the desirable Extra-Large (XL) version of PageBlack (PGBK XL) ... the ink that typically runs out before the other cartridges, if you print a lot of documents. The 6th cartridge: 271 GY XL (Gray Extra-Large) is available separately, since not all Canon Printers require or accept that cartridge.

    When I asked a a sales assistant regarding this product, he told me I don't need the gray color as its not mandatory (i needed the colors for picture printing, which i'd metioned to him). After the first print, 25% of the color was gone and it didnt come out as good as it was supposed to because the color gray was missing. Rediculous!!! And the price was $80. I could have brought a new printer with that money.

    I still have the inks that came with my printer

    As long as these work like the smaller ink packs that came with my printer I am sure they will be great. I like the fact that Canon now has multiple colors that are replaceable as individual tanks. My previous Canon printer only had Blk and Color tanks and it seemed that one always ran out way before the other one so I spent a lot on ink. Hopefully my new Canon TS9020 printer will solve that problem.

    The ink works great in the printer. The only problem I had was when I brought it straight home from the store and pulled the tabs off the colored cartridges to insert them in to the printer, the ink leaked all over my hands. The black one didn't need to be replaced for a couple more days and it did not leak when replaced, I believe because it had a chance to settle.

    Bought these additional ink cartridges together with an associated printer, as I've learned from long experience that in general you are better off buying the manufacturers ink cartridges recommended by the printer company as opposed to third party, off-brand cartridges. These cartridges provide high quality color (when used with the right paper) and full compatibility with the printer.

    Purchased this for my Canon MG7720 printer. Will only use original manufacturer ink for my printers, Have spoken to too many people that have ruined printers using refilled cartridges. If I was using an inexpensive printer might consider it, but will not purchase a cheap printer, or take the chance of ruining it with refilled cartridges.

    Canon 5-pack ink set is a bargain! Genuine Canon cartridges are neatly packaged and perform as expected. Lowest price I could find anywhere. Even better, Best Buy shipped them overnight to my house for free. Not sure how they do that for free, but this is my second order. (The first one took two days, which is what they guarantee- still excellent service!)

    Easy to install new cartridges, last a while, unless printing pictures which is disappointing, but I'm unsure if this is the same with all ink/printers. Curiosity has me investigating the new cartridge free ink I read on my email today. I will inquire about this at my next visit to best buys. Thanks for keeping me informed.

    I needed an extra printer for many reasons and this printer fulfilled may needs. Prints great color, copies, and scans. I don't need a fax on this one. I'm disabled and it helps me from getting up and down. You have the option of having the printer to turn on when you go to print and set a number of times for it to turn off. Great printer !!!

    So I purchased these cartridges for my canon printer and it has not been printing properly since I put them in. The colors are way off and I am not sure if it has to do with the cartidges or the printer. Also, my impression was that I was getting all the replacement cartridges but this pack is missing the gray.

    The combo pack is the best price for the Canon ink tanks. I really prefer the individual color tanks as opposed to a single multi-color tank. You can waste a lot of ink when one color runs low and you have to purchase a new tank to get proper color. Had that kind of printer before. Would never buy anything but a printer with individual ink tanks.

    Being a full-time student, I print a lot of PowerPoint slides. Unfortunately, a lot of them have to be in color, so I tear through the colors too fast, but black lasts for awhile. Printer ink is way too expensive, but the full set is manageable and less expensive than many other sets I've bought. Having a rewards membership saves a bit as well
