I've been buying this ink from monoprice for awhile now and have never been disappointed. It's just as good as Canon's ink, and the price is fantastic!! You get a bundle for what you normally pay for one ink cartridge. A++
I wasn't sure how well this ink would work so just ordered a black cartridge and it worked perfect so when it ran out I ordered the package with all the cartridge colors. So far these have worked flawlessly too. I've made it a practice to buy cheap inkjet printers and then when the initial ink runs out, just buy a new printer because it's cheaper than replacing the ink cartridges. Now that I've discovered Monoprice cartridges I'll keep this one around for awhile and hang on to the replacement printer I bought to replace it for awhile.
I will say that I just print on paper every once and awhile and have not used it to print photo's so can't speak to the quality there.
PROS: inexpensive works fine for general purpose printing
I've been using this ink for over two years. I have not seen any appreciable difference between this ink and the Canon original ink, except of course the price. Do be careful when opening the cartridges for installing, as I've come away with some spots on my fingers and a drop or two on the desktop.
Like most of the items Monoprice sells this is a value you can't pass up. The same quality as the OEM at 80% discount. The cartridges last longer than the originals, the ink is sharp and clear. WHY PAY MORE
