Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon PGI-225 BK/ CLI-226 4530B008 C,M,Y 4 Pack Value Pack in Retail Packaging (Office Product)
The ink that came with the printer went quickly (though we did print quite a few pictures) and so first went the gray ink (which went shockingly fast, I can't understand how this printer uses so much gray ink) and was soon followed by the three remaining colors. We purchased this three pack to replace them all, as they all wore relatively evently. We haven't yet had to use the black replacement though that day is coming soon.
The quality of ink, of course, is superb. The reliability I would only rate as above average, the yellow head got clogged and in order to unclog it we had to do the "deep clean", which was true to it's word when it warned that it would consume a considerable amount of ink. Thus my rating for quality of build, unlike the HP which just crapped out on me (a $400 inkjet no less) this was able to fix itself, though at an expense of used ink.
Convenience of course is fantastic, changing the ink takes all of 30 seconds. I think this ink, though expensive and of low quantity, is worth the price premium over generics.
