    Didn't work.

    I installed the new cartridge and the printer did not recognize it, the light did not come on at all. Removed and replaced it twice with the same result. Put the old one back in and the light blinked. After verifying that the new one was identical to the old one I tried the new one 5 or 6 more times before giving up. Went back to the store to exchange it and found out it was out of stock and had to get a refund. I sure wish Kodak would start making printers again.

    These ink cartridges only last a short time at normal use. I always write the date of installation on the cartridge before installing in my Canon MG7720 printer. The usual time to empty is from 30-40 days. They are very costly to replace, and I note that the printer will refuse to print unless you replace the empty cartridge, no matter the color. As usual, the manufacturer will almost give the printer away and make up for it by high ink prices.

    Although the ink quality is excellent, the quantity between cartridges is not consistant , sometimes varying 2 ounces, new, between same quantity cartridges. Also, the "bonus size" is not a good buy, costing about 4 cents per ounce more than if you could buy the 2 regulars size cartridges (gray being the example) My old Canon Pixma was more sympathetic to ink usage than this new one, Model Canon Pixma MG7720

    Great camera with limitations

    Seems to be a great camera so far with the exception of limited motion detection. I purchased 3 of these Guardzilla camera's for my daughter so she could observe what her cat is doing while she is a t work. the camera does not always detect the cats movement probably due to it being closer to the floor. But for her, moving the camera closer to the floor limits the viewing area. Other than that she loves the camera's

    Too Expensive

    Will not buy canon ink again! Canon has refused numerous requests for help in downloading software for their printer. Buy non- canon ink 1/3 the price, excellent quality without the frustration of dealing with canon. They still have not been able to offer an answer as to why I burn colored inks really quick when I'm printing strictly B/W. What a Farce!

    GOOD PRINTER CARTRIDGE

    i LIKE THE FACT THAT THIS WAS AVAILABLE IN A LARGER CARTRIDGE, BUT I ALSO LIKE THAT IT IS NOT PART OF THE COMBO PACK. THIS CARTRIDGE LASTS MUCH LONGER THAN THE OTHERS, SO IT WOULD BE A WASTE IF IT WAS INCLUDED IN THE COMBO PACK.

    XL is a plus!

    Generally I find the gray and black cartridges separately to make use of the XL capacity. The printer seems to yield stellar prints and I haven’t been disappointed with the ink’s lifespan.

    Makes Great Prints

    Since the printer is still fairly new, we opt for the manufacturer's cartridges. They do make great prints that last a long time. Colors remain vibrant and bright. But, pricing levels will eventually drive us towards less expensive options.

    This Canon CLI-271 XL ink cartridge was worth the price paid due to the quality of the ink in comparison to generic or store brand inks. Cannon inks due not gum up my printer the way generics that I have used in the past have. It is also second to none in the quality of prints it produces.

    The Canon MG7720 Printer takes 5 cartridges, including the gray cartridge. The printer, purchased on sale at Best Buy, had great reviews and works fine . The print quality is excellent but I cannot discern if the gray cartridge matters, because I don't print many photos.

    Reliable ink cartridge

    I bought this cartridge for my Canon TS 9020 inkjet printer. This printer is a real workhorse on our home network and seems to be reasonable frugal on ink use as long as I don't print a lot of large photos. Competitive price at my local BB store also.

    My new printer was doing a fantastic job of printing pictures until this cartridge needed to be replaced. I stopped, changed the cartridge, then printed more pictures, but they're now coming out wet and distorted. Maybe it's just too humid today, will try again another time.

    Love my cannon printer the ink that goes with the printer is the best part. Ink lasts for a long time even when it says low on ink it still prints out great. My ink with previous printer use to dry out very quick.

    This extra gray toner makes a difference

    I had another Canon printer where you could add the gray toner and this one requires it. It really makes a difference in the look of photos and black and white printing. I do like these inks; but they are expensive.

    I am thinking that this gray cartridge really makes an impact when blending in blacks. The printer probably takes in a small percentage of gray and high concentration of black in order to come out with crisp text or imaging.

    My only regret is that when I buy the 5 pack replacement for my canon printer it does not come with this cartage. I have to purchase it. as a single pack. If you have a six cartage printer why not include all six in the replacement pack.

    Necessary in our Canon copier/printer and it's a nice size and seems to last a long time. We print documents and patterns often and can get a few months worth of heavy printing done.

    This Canon CLI-271 XL 0340C001 ink cartridge produces smooth, bold text and is extra large for a high page yield between cartridge changes. Smart LED lights indicate proper installation or when the cartridge needs to be replaced.

    The Gray CLI-271 XL cartridge is the only one missing from Canon's Special Edition 270/271 5-Pack. However, the gray XL single cartridge is sold by Best Buy at a competitive price and comes with free 2-day shipping.
