Good quality, long lasting cartridge.

It's cheaper to purchase the combo black and color cartridges than to purchase each separately. If you do any color printing, I'd suggest getting the combo pack even if you don't need to replace the colored ink quite yet. You can hold onto it and replace the color later. But if you only do black and white printing, it's a good option.

I normally purchase the Canon Combo Pack (twice in the last year) which comes with a color cartridge in addition to this specific black ink only cartridge. My kids have decided they need to print out a lot of text for school this year and have been going through the ink at a rate that I can verify is about 300 pages per this exact same black ink cartridge (Canon PG-240-XL). I've never had technical problems with these cartridges, but they're pretty typical of inkjet prices and capacities. If you need them for your printer (mine is a Canon PIXMA MX432) you need them. For the price I paid it does work out to a tad less than 7 cents per page (I rounded up).

Storage time is rated at 24 months and I'm looking somewhere for a bulk purchase of this specific cartridge since the color ones aren't needed that often. I'd happily buy a 3 or 4 pack for a per cartridge discount, but no luck so far.

Hard to "love" inkjet cartridges, but given the lack of any real problems, four out of five stars.

NOTE: If my offspring continue to gobble up black ink I'll probably step up to the apparently more (per page) cost effective Canon PG-240 Double X (XXL) ink cartridge and update this review.

Had the regular sized 240 cartridge prior and it ran out pretty quick. Have printed about 30 pages so far without any signs of running out. Installation went well. I did not have any issues with the cartridge arriving empty or dry like others did. Might be a packaging or QA problem.

When this cartridge arrived and I installed it, there was almost no ink in it. It printed maybe 15/20 pages, and then was completely empty. The printer recognized the cartridge was empty, but I thought it must have been a mistake. But sure enough, the ink ran out immediately.

I've purchased this cartridge before and have had no problems, but spending $18 on a completely empty ink cartridge is such a waste.

Fits and works great on our Canon MG 3200 series printer. This is my first replacement cart for this printer and the original factory installed cartridge claimed to be out of ink long before it actually was. So have a spare cartridge ready but don't be too quick to change it out.

The ink leaks out of the tanks and ruins prints and sometimes only prints partial lines. Is this ink old or defective?? A lot of ink is wasted, as I have to print things over and cross my fingers!!!

I use these OEM cartridges for a base for refills because I know where to drill the hole. Even though I do refills, Canon gets a cartridge sale every month because I make 14,000 pages every year off my $59 Canon. Good cartridge, but their best feature is the automatic duplex; prints both sides automatically.
