Cheap is cheap and they are cheap... and flat.

They are cheap, this is true. They also work fine and dandy. But, the inks are inferior compared to the genuine Canon's.
I print pictures taken from a DSLR camera and the images are not nearly as vibrant since installing these cartridges.
Example: When I replaced the Magenta tank a small amount of ink came out, I was prepared for this to happen but when I looked at it I thought that it didn't look very rich. Since there was a little left in my genuine Magenta I made a small amount come out and compared the two - They are clearly different tones. This Magenta looks diluted by comparison.
If you're looking for some cheap ink to keep your printer going then these seem to work, but if you want your photos to have a vibrant look then avoid!
I shall not be using these inks again and despite these being almost full right now, as soon as an alternative arrives I shall be throwing these ones away.
They are cheap and that is the only plus.
