1.0 out of 5 stars useless ink cartridges, 18 Dec 2009
This review is from: Canon PGI-5 x 1 & CLI-8 x 4..... 5 compatible ink cartridges, fits Canon Pixma iP4200 iP4300 iP4500 iP5100 iP5200 iP5200R iP5300 MP500 MP530 MP600 MP600R MP610 MP800 MP800R MP810 MP830 MP960 MP970 9000 - PGI 5 BLK, CLI-8 BLK, CLI-8C, CLI-8M, CLI-8Y, New latest chipped high capacity ink cartridges. (Office Product)
I have had several unhappy experiences with'so-called' compatible ink cartridges and canon printers, on three occasions resulting in scrapping a previously faultless printer.
I should have known but I was tempted by the cheap prices once again, and, once again, the nozzles in the printhead clogged and good quality images were printed with mismatched colour areas, streaks and strange over-all colour casts.
I removed the rubbish cartridges, replaced them with original canon items and wasted a lot of ink in repeated cleaning, deep cleaning and nozzle realignments - but eventually all traces of the faulty ink were cleared and I was spared the cost of a replacement printer.
I promise it will be the last time I shall be tempted. Original inks may cost more but at least they give reliable results every time.
