When Canon sell you a new printer they supply a Canon PG-540 black and a Canon CL-541 colour cartridge. Well these cartridges only hold 8mls black & 8mls colour ink in them which is written in really really small writing on the back of the cartridge boxes. For higher yield cartridges what you really need is the Canon PG-540XL black which holds 21mls of ink and for the colour you should be using the Canon CL-541XL cartridge which holds 15mls of ink. There is a company that I have also found (advantage online) which stock the Canon original XL's and do a British premium compatible 540XL/541XL maximum yield version which holds the same mls (21/15mls) but are much cheaper and work the same. Canon make there money out of selling you a very good printer (MG2150) but then sell you starter cartridges that have hardly any ink in them (PG540 & CL541) hoping that you keep buy these silly little empty cartridges time after time. Don't fall into the Canon ink con trap, Read your Manuel and only ever buy the XL's

Having looked at other sites, this gave me the best value for a double package, especially if you use black printing more than for colour

It's genuinely cheaper to buy a new printer than it is to buy these overpriced monstrosities. Take my word for it, CHECK THAT YOU CAN GET CHEAP CARTRIDGES BEFORE BUYING THESE PRINTERS.

Nice quality black. You get what you pay for. Ink is always such a con for the amount you get but I would never use a 3rd party ink.

Nothing wrong with product,it is the fact that I am forced to buy Canon inks because they will not take Compatibles & as I do a lot of printing I prefer those.Also I have been told that they allow ONE REFILL only before they refuse to work,therefore I have to find the best price possible & it was this seller.

I was warned when purchasing the Canon MG3250 series that printer ink would be expensive. I tend to go for original inks and these are well priced in comparison to shop prices. The xl lasts a reasonable length of time.

I had seriously wondered if there was something with this fairly new printer. This new replacement answered my prayers and solved the problem! It arrived earlier than expected which was good and in excellent condition!
