2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware, Canon PG-510 Starter Cartridge Low Ink 9mls, Go For The Canon PG-512 15mls, 11 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon Original Black Ink Tank PG-510 (Office Product)
When Canon sell you a new printer they supply a Canon PG-510 black and a Canon CL-511 colour cartridge. Well these cartridges only hold 9mls black & 9mls 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-512 black which holds 15mls of ink and for the colour you should be using the Canon CL-513 cartridge which holds 13mls of ink. There is a company that I have also found (advantage online) which stock the Canon originals and a British premium compatible 512/513 maximum yield version which holds 20mls of ink in each cartridge and work just the same. Canon make there money out of selling you a very good printer (MX340) but then sell you cartridges that have hardly any ink in them (PG510 & CL511). Don't fall into the Canon ink con trap!!

Thank you so much for this info!! I use printing a lot being an art student and I've been struggling for months to find better value ink for my Canon MP260 printer. I've always loathed having to pay more than the printer was worth in the first place to supply it with ink! I've ordered the high yield PG-512 cartridge off the site you recommended- would never have found advantage-online otherwise, Thank you for the heads up!

Thanks, you have posted the most useful commentary about this ink issue......yes, Advantage Online are best value and provide large XL capacity cartridges at a very fair price. I will use them as first source in future. Thanks, any money saved is much appreciated in these straitened times.....well done.

Just wanted to add to this for anyone else looking for the Canon PG510 cartridge, I followed the recommendations of the other rewiers and ordered a twin pack of the high quality compatible PG512/CL513 cartridges from Advantage Online for £34.99 plus free 1st class delivery. They were here the next day and they are superb! Highly recommended.

I totally concur with the previous reviewer (Phillip). I was duped by the Canon sell. I always wondered why my ink cartridges seem to run dry far sooner than those on my previous older printer. I tried to locate compatibles, but it seemed Canon had scuppered that corner of the market, too.

So in the end, I, too, went to the recommended company (Advangtage online) and found them helpful and courteous. I received my premium compatible PG512/CL513 XL cartridges the very next day (post free) and yep - they are full to the brim and work like a dream. Bravo Advantage! (And thanks to Phillip for a very practical and money-saving heads up. See his review).

Canon = great printers, cack ink cartidges!!
