    good ink; chintzy quantity

    I cut one of my empty Cannon ink cartridges in half and discovered 2 compartments. One half was completely empty. It had never had a drop of ink in it. The side that had contained the ink, used a spongy material to distribute the ink. It was still wet with ink. There is no way of knowing if they ever completely filled that little compartment. We were in a tizzy when gasoline prices reached $4 a gallon and yet we spend, I suspect, thousands for a gallon of ink. There ought to be a law against it! If gasoline prices rise more than a dime a gallon before a hurricane, gas stations will be in violation of a gouging law. Well, if ink prices aren't gouging I don't know what is. The quality of print and photos is pretty good.The ink cartridges I refer to, are for the mediocre Cannon MX922 printer.

    High Quality Ink for High Quality Printing!

    I use these ink cartridges for my personal printer which gets a LOT of use between myself and our 5 kids. I was so impressed with the print quality of our previous Canon printer that after it finally stopped working (after about 8 years!) I wouldn't look at any other brand for photo purposes. I've owned HP, Brother, Canon and also have an Epson for my home office. A Canon printer paired with genuine Canon ink has always provided me with the most beautiful, accurate colors for photos and images.

    Ordered this ink online as replacement ink and it shipped really fast. The reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because this cannon printer uses way too much ink. It cleans the heads a few seconds after you print a page so if you are printing multiple documents and it takes you a few seconds to pull the next document up to print, the printer cleans the head in between and you have wasted ink. Bad design - or maybe that is what they wanted so you would have to buy more ink.

    Consistently Satisfactory Ink Cartridge... but $$

    My experience has been better with Canon Printer Products and accessories than Epson, HP or Brother combines... so far. These high capacity black carts are of consistent quality, but I feel like they are marked up at least 200%. This is not Best Buy's fault as much as a consistent issue amongst the Ink Jet industry. Recommend, unless you can find the exact same thing cheaper somewhere else. (see my other Canon ink cart review)

    Canon Ink/toner products confusing

    Like many other ink/toner products, I find the labels and contents of Canon inks are confusing and difficult to compare. The content of high capacity units compared with regular; the multi-packs that include two types of black, and separate ink for grey! Difficulty in settings for draft or economy setting on colors. None of these are the fault of Best Buy, but it would be nice to have more customer friendly products

    Best Value in Canon Black Inkjet Cartridges!

    These Canon Inkjet Printer XL High Yield Ink Cartridges offer the best value in black ink cartridges. They cost less per ML than the standard cartridges and they're available in single or double packs. 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.

    Besides being a better buy, here at the law office nothing is as annoying as coming back to the print room to retrieve a document, only to find that the printing of the 40 page document stopped on page 3 because the ink cartridge needed to be replaced. The fewer cartridges I change, the better...not to mention the ink I don't get all over my hands!

    Great Ink for a Wonderful Wireless Printer

    We have been using this ink for our Canon MX-922 4-in-1 wireless printer since we bought the printer several years ago. The ink works great and we have never had a problem with a cartridge. We love this printer because it uses separate cartridges for the black and 3 individual colors so you can replace only the empty cartridge whenever needed.

    I am very happy with the Canon printer purchased at Best Buy & the ink cartridge. ALSO, I have attended info classes on my Apple Mac Pro by Nick Forchione & I hope Best Buy continues to have regular classes hosted by him. They are very helpful. I have told many friends about this & encouraged them to purchase their Apple products there & attend his classes. Please continue!

    I mainly use Canon - Pgi-250xl High-yield Ink Cartridges in my colour printer. In this case I needed Black. To date I have purchased and used 4 lots of this Ink and have found it to be PERFECT. The print quality always meets my expectations. The price of the cartrige is reasonable and Best Buy sometimes have it as a special which makes it even more economical.

    Shame on Canon

    Canon uses tek in printer to clean way too much and causes you to waste ink to buy more. Also the xl size is a ripoff as the regular size is less per ml My store never has the regular size in stock. Don't change the cartridge when it says, you have plenty ink left. Wait till it shows poorly on copies, then change.

    I bought replacement PGI-250XL High-Yield Ink Cartridge - Black for my Cannon printer only to get an error message when I inserted them that could not be fixed. I had to purchase a new printer and the new one used different cartridges. So not only were they very expensive but now I'm stuck with something that I am unable to use.

    Extra black ink cartridge for Canon printer

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    This is a nice feature of the Canon MX922. An extra (high yield) black ink cartridge helps conserve the colors and the smaller black cartridge that works with the colors. Quality, even in draft print, looks good. I use draft print most of the time, to conserve ink and colors, and then change to better quality as needed, which is easy and quick to do.

    I always get great service and good quality results from Canon ink cartridges. I've been using them for over 5 years and never had a problem. Yes, they cost more than generic or refilled product, but I like knowing that I'll get what I paid for.

    Good ink, but price is too high for the size.

    Canon cartridge ink is good quality but way too expensive for the quantity of ink that customers get regardless of what package you select. Instead of loading customers with free picture paper (that most people don't use), they should stop waisting money in picture paper and use it toward reduction of price in the ink.

    I only buy these from Best Buy after getting a fake one on that big website which starts with an A and ends with an N. Shopping at Best Buy I know I always will receive the genuine item and won't ever be ripped off. Definitely recommended.

    250 XL lasts longer

    My Canon printer requires that I use all 5 ink cartridges. The larger black one lasts longer and is used up first before the regular 251 BK cartridge gets used. I print a lot of documents so that works for me. Quality of the print is good, but I noticed the cost of ink is getting more pricier.

    This tank is one of the many genuine Canon tanks I have used over the years. I find that I never have any issues when I use them and if I can find them on sale it sweetens the deal. Highly recommended.

    When it comes to my ink purchases I usually plan to purchase from BestBuy. Being a rewards member it helps to offset the retail price. Reward members appear to get a discount as well. With that and possible sale prices, this makes the price of ink much more reasonable.
