3.0 out of 5 stars Gold price not but not gold either
Were cheap, try these for some time now. Work well with my Canon printer but ink quality is not great. Ideal for daily printing but not good enough for photo printing. Will revert to my usual supplier when stock finish

This review is from: 10 Canon Compatible CLI526, PGI525, Printing Ink Cartridges - NEW WITH CHIP INSTALLED NO FUSS - Multipack Set of 10 Canon Compatible Printer Ink Cartridges for CANON PIXMA iP4850, iP4950, MG5150, MG5250, MG5350, MG6150, MG6220, MG6250, MG8150, MG8220, MG8250, MX715, MX885, IX6550 Printer Inks PGI 525BK, CLI 526Y, CLI 526M, CLI 526C, CLI 526BK,) High Capacity Inks (Office Product)
This is my fourth set of these cartridges from First Call inks. I can see no difference in print quality between the original Canon cartridges that came with my printer. They installed easily with no problems whatsoever. I am absolutely thrilled to find compatible inks with such fantastic print quality. I tried a compatible ink once before with a different printer and the quality was terrible and so went back to the originals. Therefore I was a bit sceptical about trying these. I do a lot of colour printing and my hobby of making greeting cards from C.D. roms would not have been cost effective at the price of original inks. Super fast delivery.

Don't hesitate, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

This review is from: 10 Canon Compatible CLI526, PGI525, Printing Ink Cartridges - NEW WITH CHIP INSTALLED NO FUSS - Multipack Set of 10 Canon Compatible Printer Ink Cartridges for CANON PIXMA iP4850, iP4950, MG5150, MG5250, MG5350, MG6150, MG6220, MG6250, MG8150, MG8220, MG8250, MX715, MX885, IX6550 Printer Inks PGI 525BK, CLI 526Y, CLI 526M, CLI 526C, CLI 526BK,) High Capacity Inks (Office Product)
I have a Canon MG5150 and was beginning to become a little disheartened with the cost of genuine replacement ink so decided to take the plunge into the rather dubious world of compatible consumables. I say dubious not with any pointedness but rather from previous experience a few years ago when sourcing Epsom compatibles which was not pretty!

These cartridges are as good as if not better than the 'sold with machine' cartridges. They are delivered in a timely manner,in nice flat packaging - so it will fit through your letter box avoiding trips to the sorting office for starters. They are odourless, easily on a par with the original inks with regard to photo reproduction as well as general printing and longevity. I really can not praise these cartridges enough and shall without hesitation be recommending them to my colleagues!

Well done First Call Inks! A+++++++

I thought i had a problem with the black but found out it was not being recognized as one of my colours was out of ink.
When i replaced the yellow the black then worked.
Fabulous colours on photos.Will definitely buy again.

I have used about 6 complete sets of inks from First Call via Amazon in the last 12 months without any issues. I did not notice any difference from the original supplied ink when prinitng either documents or high res photos on photo papaer. The inks are very full and the printer warns that it maybe out of ink long before it actually is so I ignore the warning. Delivery is fast and packaging is neat.

Seems risky buying compatible rather than original, but this is my second pack from First Call Inks and I'll be buying again. I print onto acetate as well as glossy and matt photographic papers and these plus regular printing are all fine.
There's no problem installing the cartridges either.

I was slightly sceptical when I ordered this product whether it would be compatible with my Canon printer and whether the quality would be as good as a Canon product. However it exceeded all my expectations. It's excellent and a lot cheaper than buying Canon colour printer cartridges. The only noticable flaw was a couple of drops of black on the first print run after installation. Other than that nothing. Very good.

Compared to the usual proce of Canon inks these are a godsend. Easy to install and give good results. Just make sure you do a test and recalobrate.
