Too little ink

The quality of the ink is great, but there is so little ink, that you are constantly buying more. As soon as you print one page, the ink level is moving down, down, down.



I bought the printer that uses this cartridge at my local Wal Mart because I needed a cheap printer for occasional light printing purposes. While the printer is cheap, the cartridges are outrageously expensive and you get practically no ink. That is if you are lucky enough to find the cartridges in the first place. Wal Mart DOES NOT stock the cartridges in store, you have to order them online. DON'T BUY THE CANNON PRINTER THESE FIT. Before you purchase any printer, regardless of price, make sure the ink is stocked in store and reasonably priced.


Too Little for too Much

The reason why I rated this print cartridge product average is because it's too expensive for such a small amount of ink. It uses up ink too fast. I was a paralegal at one time and owned a couple of really good printers that gave me much more for my money. Had I known this Canon model was made primarily for color photos, I never would have bought it. It's too expensive to run the black ink, let alone the color, too. We live and we learn.


Canon PG-245 Black Inkject Printer Cartridge

While not a long lasting cartridge, the quality is above average. The one negative I would have is the fact that this cartridge is meant to be used with the most inexpensive Canon printer which can be found on line for $25 to $35. The cost of the cartridge at $17.59 is ridiculously high for the low end printer. Time for a price roll back on this cartridge. Ink is one of the least expensive items in today's market. Why then does the cost of an ink cartridge remain so high? Walmart needs to do some major price negotiations with Canon.


Canon ink

I have searched for the best value for the ink and I found that Walmart was the best and I have been using the ink with no problems for the last 2 weeks or so. I would definetly buy this again.
