So far it is working great! It is the largest black ink cartridge you can get for the Canon MX922. With tax it was about $38 so if it ever does run out of ink someday I will try to get it refilled at Costco. I noticed the other day that they started to refill the MX922 ink cartridges. To save on ink costs I do have a suggestion that works for me. I rarely need color. So go to control panel and pick printer. Find your printer but don't click on it. Hover over it and right click it and pick printing preferences. Now choose duplex printing, gray and fast. This will only use your big black ink tank when you print. If you want color click print on Firefox or your document as you normally would. A box will come up asking you how many prints etc. Now in that box click properties and unclick the previous items I told you to click and you will get colour. Click ok and print. You will need to do that for colour prints each time unless you go back to your global settings in control panel or save a document in the colour preferences. However, if you leave it in control panel 'as is' to print colour normally your ink in ALL colours will run out quickly. Even if the article is all black. This printer will try to mix the small black and colours to make a better print. With this Canon model MX922 you can print anywhere in the house using an iPod Touch 5th Gen. Good luck.

According to the canon website the following black cartridges are compatible:
PGI-255 XXL - 800 pgs - $33.95 - 4.24 cents per page
PGI-250 XL - 500 pgs - $19.30 - 3.86 cents per page
PGI-250 - 300 pgs - $13.57 - 4.52 cents per page

the XL is the best value. There are some rumors that ink may evaporate over time. So if you aren't a high volume printer, then the regular may be a better value. Either way, the XXL is the wrong choice.

Got this exact item just now from OfficeMax online for $26.24!!! My total with tax came to $28.34 and best of all this single item qualified for free shipping. That just blew my mind!! That's 800 prints at 3.5 cents a copy after tax and only 3.3 cents before tax! The other reviewer that said the XL tank is a much better bargain has just been proven dead wrong.

My shopping around tonight paid off big! I love Amazon, but of course every once in a while someone else out there has an item at a much better price.

I ordered the Canon printer when it was offered as a "deal of the day" and ordered the same brand of ink rather than "chance" an off brand or try the "refillable cartridges", which I have heard often leak and of poor quality. While the price seems a little high, the ink cartridge lasts a long time and the ink does not smudge and printed documents look "crisp" and professional. I will continue to order this.

This XXL Pigment Black tank works just as hoped: NO surprises, NO clogs, NO problems and, lasts a REALLY LONG TIME! I've, successfully, used Canon replacement inks over the years and, without fail, have had none of the problems that others relate with their printers clogging, lasting a short time. Total success, so, I don't mess with that! And, now, the addition of being able to buy a larger capacity tank and save a bit of money and not be bothered, so often, with changing out tanks -- "ink tank perfection", as far as I'm concerned.

This is a great value for the name brand Canon ink. It lasts much longer than the regular size and the XL sizes and does not cost that much more.

easy replacement. It works. I wish it was a little less expensive and that I would not have to write a set amount of words to create a review.
