I use a Canon MG 7120 which is a new model. In fact it is so new that it is not even listed in Amazon's "will this cartridge work in your printer" verification box. However, I have found this XL cartridge to last significantly longer. I would also note for those looking to vastly decrease your cost of replacement, that I have used several of the off brand replacement cartridges sold by Amazon and I truly can see NO difference. While I still use the Canon branded ones from time to time, you should feel comfortable trying the off brand cartridges, they work just as well as best as I can tell from my use. Note also, that if you buy an off brand cartridge through Amazon and it does not work, they will replace it, generally no questions asked.

This review is applicable to the CLI-251 cartridges regardless of color. The Canon ink/printer/paper combination produce very attractive photo images. The six cartridge system does not have the color gamut to achieve the matching of professional printers but is a cost effective system for the advanced amateur photographer requiring only low print volumes. The inks are expensive at roughly $1.35/ml in XL size and over $1.50/ml in the standard size. Ink for professional printers in larger cartridge size is in the range of $0.40/ml, less than 1/3 the cost of the CLI-251 XL cartridge inks. The Chromalife 100+ ink is over hyped by Canon marketing citing the potential 100-300 years of storage life rather than the 30 year display life. I print in order to display my work rather than to store it in an album. The 30 year display life satisfies my need but is not very good compared to other ink/paper combinations using pigmented inks which deliver 75-150 years under the same test conditions. In summary, image quality would rate 5 stars, ink costs 2 stars, and display life 3 stars for an overall rating of four stars.

I love that this ink cartridge lasted so much longer than the regular ink tanks. Good product, definitely would keep ordering over the regular ones to reduce time between orders.

Historically, we have had poor results when using generic inks. Typically the ink nozzels clog because we infrequently do any printing. Using factory branded inks we have never had this problem with extended use. As a result, we spend about 2/3 the cost of a brand new printer to purchase the branded inks. Thankfully, we do not need to print too often so staying with the branded inks makes more sense for us to extend the life of the printer.

While I'm sure this ink would have pleased Gutenburg, the price would have made him take a hammer to our inkjet and return to his press. Currently the XL is priced at .81¢ per ml (22 ml each), and the standard is $1.71 per ml (7 ml each).

I have a canon printer that needs to have this color cartridge. I am glad to get this cheaper here than at one of the local stores. It works well. I do lots of picture prints and print directly onto cd's ad dvd's This lasts a good amount of time and will order more when I need to. I have done over 100 pictures that I printed and did not need to change this (yeah it is getting low but still some in there).

Good Canon replacement cartridge. Arrived before date that was given and free shipping. Have no idea why it's not included in the package with all the colors?

Beats having to replace the standard size frequently. Never have had a problem with any Canon ink cartridge. Canon is solid company with excellent products.

I stay with Canon inks but I don't print a lot. If I did, I might give the generic options a try.
