    Lenova Ideapad windows 10

    I previously purchased a windows 7 Lenova Idea pad from best Buy and I bought a windows 10 Lenova Idea Pad because I really liked my W-7 Lenova Idea pad lap top. and assumed I would equally like the W-10. other than the operating system being different I found that my windows 10 Lenova has communication problems with my Internet router although it is connected by a cord and the router connects to my windows 7 with no problems at all using the same cord and the same router, On the W10 computer it continually interrupts me with messages saying "you are no longer connected to the internet" or "Microsoft is not responding" etc.Then it tries to correct the problem . Then it says it could not correct the problem. I click off the message and the problem corrects itself only to occur 5 or 10 mnutes later. I originally thought it was my router but it does not ever occur on the computer I am using now. My older lenova w-7. I have fios which is now owned by Frontier. Fios gave me a new router less than a year ago. The new Lenova windows 10 is also much slower. Sometimes I have trouble opening e-mails as well. I currently have the w-10 at the GEEK SQUAD to check it out. When I brought it in they did a quick check while I was there and felt there was no problem but kept it for further investigation. I will pick it up today 9/25/16 at 11:30 and hopefully the problem will be solved. I don't want to give Lenova a bad name because I am unsure where the problem lies and I love my windows 7 Lenova. I'm on it now.

    More ink but not by much

    After draining the pack-in cartridge for my Canon printer, I was skeptical of the XL cartridge, but I ended up purchasing it anyway. Because my household mostly consists of bargain hunters, we frequently print out coupons for promotions that don't accept electronic coupons, and it has outlasted the bundled cartridge. Although I am satisfied with the longevity compared to non-XL version, it seems like I might be purchasing 3 XL cartridges per year. If this increased capacity cartridge was made for almost-everyday printing, it's still not enough.

    "XL" gives you more ink for your money.

    I don't use my printer on a regular basis, so I worry about the ink drying up between uses. But this ink has never dried up on me, so it's worth buying the larger capacity XL ink which offers a better value than the regular (smaller) ink cartridge. I also did not have to do an alignment test after installation. Everything still prints perfectly. It dries quickly and doesn't run either. BEST BUY also had the best price for the cartridge. I am happy with the purchase.

    So happy that Canon offers this XL size for all of the new printers. When I checked the specs, I believe it was a lot more thank double output compared with the standard size and for much less $$ than buying two standard cartridges. In addition, while this review is only for the ink, I found that the little Canon printer was very user friendly in terms of getting it hooked up for wireless connectivity :)

    Good ink for most part

    My only reason for the 4 stars is that one of this ink that I purchased did not work out of the package. I buy ink as soon as I put the last one in the printer to have on hand when it runs out again. Because this ink was bought more than 15 days ago, they would not replace for free even though it was defective right out of the package. They did give me another one for the reduced price of 10.70 with tax. So I actually ended up spending another 10.70 to get an ink cartridge that worked. Pretty poor customer service.

    Never enough!!

    Having a printer is never having to say I had enough printer ink. Regardless of printer brand the printer cartridges never last long enough. This high yield cartridge helped give us more ink that lasted longer than most cartridges but still seems to run out sooner than expected. It is the curse of printer ownership. Since I used a Best Buy point certificate to purchase this cartridge it took the sting out of buying ink. So 4 stars is the Best I can muster for this review.

    Canon - PG-245XL High-Yield Ink Cartridge - Black

    I have been using this ink for the last year on a might little printer I purchased from Best Buy for a very low price. I definitely prefer to use the XL version because of the length that this black cartridge lasts. I highly recommend that you select an XL cartridge because it definitely is worth paying more for the length of time it lasts.

    I recently purchased Canon Pixma black ink refill and for the first time it was the XL. I never knew the difference between regular ink and XL ink. An employee gladly explained and assisted me during my purchase. I discovered it meant more ink for the money. I am extremely satisfied with Canon black ink 245 XL and will purchase it again. The black ink prints out perfectly and is long lasting.

    Cannon Ink thumbs down

    Best Buy was wonderful as always. There was some one to help me as soon as I reached the department. I do not like Cannon because it is more expensive than the other brand I was used too. It is never on sale and the number of pages it prints compared to HP is much less. I was pleased with Best Buy from the front door until I made my exit. The cashier was great. He looked up a free coupon I had in my email and was able to use it.

    I've almost always had a good experience with this ink. The last time I got a dud where it did not work out of the box. Best Buy wouldn't give me a free replacement because it was past the 15 day purchase date which I thought was pretty poor customer service considering it did not print out of the box. Fortunately Canon did send a replacement. For that they deserve kudos. The one did is the reason for 4 stars.

    Works like a charm every time. Thanks Best Buy. Would love to see how one could just refill the used cartridge instead of trashing them. Perhaps there is such a system which I am currently unaware of. Please feel free to let me know. Much appreciated and thanks again. Always love to shop at Best Buy. Great staff and very knowledgeable. One would not be disappointed when visiting your local store.

    Great first time DSLR camera

    This camera came highly recommended for beginners of DSLR and I agree. It can do so much but if you don't want to do anything but point and shoot, the full Auto mode does great. The pics are high resolution 1080P and when you zoom in on a pic, its highly defined, not grainy. We bought this for our 10 day HI vacation next month and I can wait to utilize it in all it's functions.

    I'm fairly impressed with how many pages I get in comparison to the regular cartridge; however, for the large difference in price of the XL versus the regular size, I would expect to get more pages per cartridge. The ink prints great, no issues with the cartridges at all. I'll continue purchasing this ink for my printer but I feel the price should be less (-$5).

    Ink cartridge

    From my understanding the initial ink cartridge that comes with a new unit is not that of a newly purchased ink cartridge thus mine ran out and I had to go out and get a new one. I asked the sales associate for some help direct me to two choices I picked the larger cartridge so as not to run out of ink as fast as the first time.

    Ink running out too soon will cost more in the end

    I have purchased the XL ink cartridges numerous times for the cannon pixma printer 492 I purchased in Dec 2015. This ink runs out too quickly. This printer is nice for regular use, not for business use! I have spent much more for the ink in less than a year than I spent on purchasing this printer. My lesson has been learnt. Find a business printer where the ink last longer.

    Only way to go for this product

    I definitely only recommend this product for Canon printers that use the 245 Cartridge. It comes with the standard size in cartridges and I chewed through it in a couple day. Granted, I use the MX492 printer as an office printer so it gets a lot of use. I'm not thrilled with how Canon limits print area to certain paper sizes with no flexibility but the print quality is great.

    Canon inkjet not good if printing/copying a lot

    The ink is fine, the Canon copier/printer is fine as well. However, I use my printer/copier a great deal and the inkjet is too costly. If one needs to copy/print a great deal ( as I do), I would recommend a laser printer.copier. I am in the process of sussing out laser printer/copiers, so that I can significantly lower my printing copying cost.

    I always buy Replacement ink for my printer from Best Buy because every Wednesday I get 10% off the purchase price just for being a Best Buy Rewards Member! This ink performs as expected. I prefer the XL because it's a much better deal, it lasts much longer than the other cartridges. It dries fast compared to other inkjet printer ink I've used.

    Best Buy makes it so easy to buy refills for my printer - I go online, find what I need, order it, and have it shipped to me. What's not to like about that? Add the fact that their prices are good, and the ink is the correct one for my printer - it's a win-win situation!

    Most of the time I buy generic ink for my printers, but I only made that mistake once with this printer. Comparing the ink, Canon brand prints smoother and has a lot more ink in it based on pages printed. Canon brand is one I don’t skimp on. The ink is the best for their printers! The most bang for your buck.
