When Canon sell you a new printer they supply a Canon PG-540 black and a Canon CL-541 colour cartridge. Well these cartridges only hold 8ml black & 8mls 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-540XL black which holds 21ml of ink and for the colour you should be using the Canon CL-541XL cartridge which holds 15ml of ink. There is a company that I have also found (advantage online) which stock the Canon original XL's and do a British premium compatible 540XL/541XL maximum yield version which holds the same ml (21/15mls) but are much cheaper and work the same. Canon make there money out of selling you a very good printer (MG2150) but then sell you starter cartridges that have hardly any ink in them (PG540 & CL541) hoping that you keep buy these silly little empty cartridges time after time. Don't fall into the Canon ink con trap, Read your Manuel and only ever buy the XL's or you'll be throwing your money away....

Bought a new printer and as these things go, the print cartridges from my old printer were not compatible.

I priced up the new cartridges on several websites and in local shops, and these were by far the cheapest I found.

I have placed this product on my wish list for future purchases.

Arrived in plenty of time. Would recommend.

. . . . . . . . . I wish manufacturers were a little more generous with their ink. That said this isn't a bad price for good quality ink

I chose this rating because the product does what it said and having the two ink cartridges together is much more cost effective for me because I am studying at the moment and I have to print my assignments in color. I would definitely purchase this item again.

Lasted with 8 full A4 colour images - software says it's depleted! Someone at Canon did send a spare free of charge out of courtesy - credit to Christopher, but I was told this is normal! WTF? Bewildering and appalling if true! That means a minimum of £2 per photo! I was thinking 20p I think it was at our uni was rather excessive! A new cartridge every 10 photos! Absolutely unfathomable! How can this be? Are other printers the same?

Well packed item. I will use this company again as the goods arrived on time and were exactly as described. The price was also competative as I have checked on other sites. I do not use non Canon products in my printer as I have learnt from previous experience with my previous HP printer that cheaper inks are poor value and can cause serious problems.

Overpriced but if have the printer you're trapped.

You can literally buy a new printer with ink cartridges for this price. Worst part is there are no 3rd party alternatives for my particular printer.

These cartridges are daylight robbery.

Replacement ink cartridges - we all need them and so I bought some from Amazon. They were cheaper on Amazon than all the other shops in the UK, even online shops. I didn't check eBay though, they could have been cheaper there but I wanted them from the UK and cheap ones on eBay tend to come from China, The ink cartridges are great, they work fine and I'm happy. The only reason for rating it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I hate how Canon printers indicate ink needs replacing when you can still get 40+ pages out of them! It's just Canon's way of making more money on their customers by getting them to buy more ink when they don't need it. I'm not a fan of Canon, I prefer HP computer products.
