Stick with OEM and don't experiment with generic brands; it isn't worth it. I use this product on the S500 primarily for CD labeling...lots of graphics and color. Reproduction is excellent and I get my $$$worth. When you get the pop-up window stating that the ink is low for one color, don't think it is empty. Far from it....it can go several days with the pop-up still on low until it is bone dry.

If you have a canon printer you're probably very happy with its color reproduction. If you wish to keep that going stick to genuine ink. I recently bought generic ink in an effort to save a buck. What happened? I got horrible results! The "black" ink looked more like deep green, every picture I printed had an unatural color, and the colors were never in balance. Some colors would appear too strong, while others would appear weak. Most generic ink smells like permanent marker and doesn't last, the images fade quickly when placed regularly out in the open, genuine canon ink does not fade, and is practically odorless. The price of genuine canon ink is of course higher than the generic stuff, but you're paying for quality. If you want quality printing, you need quality ink. Don't buy generic, buy this instead!

I have a Canon Multi-Pass printer which printed outstanding color photos from my digital camera until I decided to purchase refurbished ink tanks at a very low price. DON'T DO IT!!! The ink that is used in refurbished tanks are inferior and caused me to ruin my printer head. The new head cost me $80.
I now use the Canon Multi-Pack, which I purchase from Amazon at a really good price and I am back to printing great color photos once again.
I learned my lesson the costly way, don't you.

I have had a great experience with these ink tanks. I love the ability to only buy the ink that I need with the Canon seperate ink tanks. The color is brilliant and the quality is unmatched for the price. Compared to say, a Lexxmark printer, which allows you to pay hardly anything for the printer itself but charges a premium for the ink. The ink makes fabulous, lustrously colored pictures, buy this set!!!

These are great inks, I use them, yadda yadda.. I'm simply here with a friendly tip I just realized:

If you buy them separately and make sure the seller is amazon, it'll only cost 30.61 with free "super shipper" shipping.

OEM ink works best in Canon printers. No problems with clogged heads or bad print. I have had my Canon S600 for a year now and have never even put it through a cleaning cycle and it works perfect. This set has the three colored tanks and a black. I would suggest going directly to the office supply store that is supplying this to Amazon and get it from their site. They are always offering coupons and free shipping as well.

I bought these from Ink Express (R S I Inc.)here on amazon. They appear to be OEM canon cartridges but they are not in a blister pack as illustrated on amazon, just 2 cartridges in a little plain brown box with an Ink Express label. Each cartridge has its plastic wrapper intact. I installed the first one in my printer. Hopefully it will be fine.

I only use genuine canon cartridges so I would feel better if they came in the canon blister pack as shown on amazon but I decided not to return them. I see that today they are being offered by another seller and Ink Express does not have any more for sale. It makes me wonder where these come from or how long they have been sitting around.

I had picked up another canon cartridge from a well-known online auction site and it had very old canon labeling. I contacted canon and they said the cartridges do not become outdated and it was safe to use. However it lasted a lot shorter than my ink tanks usually do. Just a few words to the wise.

The BCI-3eBk is good quality black ink for an inkjet printer. I have used this ink for a couple of years now and don't recall it smudging on the pages I print. The price on this product (compared to HP products) is fair, but I am able to print a 100 to 200 pages before running out of ink. Of course, you will get more pages out of this cartridge if you print more color graphics than text.

I have a Canon S600 printer that I use quite often for doing pictures so I only use OEM inks in it. The separate ink tank system in some of the Canon printers is nice as you don't have that "I just threw good ink away" feeling you get with the combined color cartridge systems when you have to replace them because one color ran out. I have actually purchased this 3 pack in the past and it usually saves you a couple bucks over buying them separate. I would suggest buying them directly from one of the office supply on-line stores as they always have coupons available and normally you can get free shipping as well by purchasing a set amount from the site. No bad experiences with this ink in about 20 ink tanks used.

This product was purchased through Amazon from Eforcity. It was advertised as Canon. The picture of the product was a canon box picture, BUT IT WAS NOT CANON. It was aftermarket! I did not get canon, I got conned!
