When Canon sell you a new printer (Pixma MG5450) they only give you starter cartridges with it which hold a very small amount of ink in them PGI-550 black and CLI-551 colour cartridges c/m/y (STARTER CARTRIDGES). I was using about 3 black and 2 each of the colours cartridge per month and it was costing me a small forturne. I later found out that Canon do a higher yield versions of the PGI-550 and CLI-551 cartridges which cost only a few pounds more but hold far more ink in them than the starter cartridges which I was using before. What you need is a PGI-550XL on the black which hold 22mls of ink rather than the 15mls of ink that is in the black starter cartridge and on the colour what you should be using is CLI-551XL cartridges which holds 11mls each colour rather than the 7mls which is in the colour starter cartridges. I can even go one better, I now use a company called advantage online who stock the Canon originals PGI-550/CLI-551XL's plus do British premium compatible PGI-550XL and CLI-551XL cartridges which hold a impressive 25mls black and 12mls per colour. I have used them a couple of times so far and have been quite impressed. I hope you don't fall into the Canon trap of selling a very good printer (Pixma MG5450) at a very cheap price and then trying to charge you load of money for starter cartridges which are nearly empty....

I alternate Canon cartridges with compatibles (from First Call Inks, Amazon) and this works well for my printer (MG6350). If it wasn't for the price I would use genuine Canon all the time but they're soooo expensive.

As should be expected from the OEM, these inks are excellent and work well in the printer. Results are sharp and clear. Using the printer for 2~3 A4 sheets each day, so far the inks have not dried in the head so do not need excessive ink consuming cleaning every time the printer is used.

Only down side at the moment is that being a very new cartridge, no compatibles are currently available, so replacing the inks is expensive.

Last week I was printing out stuff from my computer, the black ink 550xl ran out. I had a cheaper replacement but when I put it in my printer it was not recognised. I was unable to do my work. Since then I've noticed the Canon xl ink is 22 ml but the cheaper inks I have are only 7ml.
For me it makes sense to buy the Canon version of the inks.

I ordered two of these genuine yet affordable Canon cartridges because the cheaper ones I already had would not fit in my Canon Pixma printer. These fit perfectly and the print quality is exceptional. As for the service, I heard there was an Amazon Locker close to home and I decided to give it a try using Amazon's one day delivery option. Before I collected my cartridges from my local locker, I received notification by text and e-mail giving me the code to enter on the locker screen, meaning the level of communication was efficient. My cartridges arrived in the locker today, which was very pleasing and convenient.

Overall, these cartridges and the locker service are excellent and I will definitely consider both again in future. 5/5.

For a new printer, I was hoping it would be a little more economic when it comes to it's use of ink. Older inkjets used to use ink like it was going out of fashion, spending as much time cleaning their heads (and therefore printing onto a blotting pad) as they did printing. Unfortunately this printer seems to do the same, and as a result I end up buying more of these than i would like...

I am so happy with my new Pixma MG7150 printer and am happy with the printer ink despite it being pricey. I have had a reasonably good ink performance in terms of number of copies when I compare it against my old Epson that I have just had to replace. So mostly impressed.

The product is what I needed but it is so expensive.
The "XL" apparently means the ink should last longer but I don't think it does. I would not like to see how long the standard cartridge lasts.

I have stuck to buying the original cartridges because of scare tactics in regard to using compatible ink products damaging the printer, but I think I will consider compatible ink products as I am sure the costs of these cartridges is like purchasing a new printer each time.

I had to rate the product two stars less because of the price and unreliable claims that the cartridges lasts longer.
