2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't seem to last very long, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon PG-540XL and CL-541XL High Capacity Ink Cartridge Pack - Multi-Coloured (Office Product)
All inks are expensive and I guess that is how the companies make most of their money. I have had various printers over the years and everyone seems to "eat" the ink. I print an average amount, I am a teacher and print an odd class set and extra sheets to photocopy at work. So bought this one thinking these would last longer and I would not be as disappointed. Loaded them into my printer at the beginning of February. Printed approximately 400 sheets and they have both ran out. The black ink came up low within about 6 weeks (200 sheets) and the colour soon followed.

I really don't think this lasted longer than the ordinary ink, which I have bought now. The price for both inks xl was £37.60, and individual prices for normal were £14.00 Black and £17.50 Colour (£31.50). I will let you know if these last even less. One plus was that even when the printer said "ink low" they printed for a few weeks and the quality was still okay.

So, where's the follow up? How long did they last compared to the XL?
