A Classic - Two Decades of Faithful Service
on July 3, 2012
The Canon BC-02 Black ink cartridge is becoming difficult to find...for good reason..most of the printers that it fits were made between 1994 and 1998. I just "retired" my Canon BJC-210 printer after 17 years of reliable printing, with the difficulty of finding "fresh" ink a factor in its retirement...for it still is printing just as good as it did back in 1995.
If you happen to have a Canon BC-02 cartridge in its original box, you should consider keeping it as a relic of the early days of home computers. It is very unlikely that any home printer sold in 2012 will be in service 17 years from now...today's printers don't last much longer than the ink cartridges they are sold with.
I hope Amazon and its vendors will continue to supply the BC-02, if fresh cartridges are available. They don't last long in storage, so after the factory stops supplying fresh ones, it is really the end of a long road.
