4.0 out of 5 stars The Good, The Bad and The Messy, August 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 10 Pack compatible Ink PGI-5BK, CLI-8BK, CLI-8C, CLI-8M, CLI-8Y Inkjet Cartridge for Canon PIXMA MP-500, MP-530, MP-830 MP-950 MP-960 MP-970 MX-850, PIXMA iP4200, iP4500, iP5200 (Electronics)
Item shipped very quickly and was well packaged which is always a bonus. It worked well with my MX850 Canon printer, printer recognized the cartridges and printed well, no streaks or blemishes as you might find using one of those re-inking kits. Definte moneysaver, two sets of cartridges for about half the price of 1 offical Canon set. Would buy again.

Now the messy..as other reviewers have noted taking the cap off of the bottom of the cartridges can be messy, I used 3 cartridges (1 black, 1 cyan & 1 yellow) only the cyan did not leak/drip. It wasnt a major mess but I suppose that's the price that you pay for saving a few bucks. I would suggest to others to open over a newspaper or some type of covering and then wipe off bottom before putting in to your printer so that you do not drip ink inside of your printer.

I completely agree. That's the same experience I have had with this series of G&G cartridges. They work well but they can be messy to open. Also, be certain you are ordering ones with the chips installed. G&G sells them both with and without chips. If you get them without, you will need to salvage the chips from your old cartridges and reinstall (hardly worth it).

I wonder if these inks last as long as the name brands or if there are other differences. Some of the name brand ones are quasi photo archive quality. Not that one needs that very often.
