To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These inks are a good price/value alternative to the OEM brand. The color rendition appears very similar with the OEM colors, except for the black. The black does not seem to be as dark as OEM black. However, it is not so noticeable as to be a distraction. The cartridges fit and perform like the OEM. I can not comment about longevity of the color on the print because I have only been using these inks for a couple of months. So far, very pleased.
These worked great. Can't tell the difference between these and OEM. Get an unrecognized error the odd time after changing a cartridge. Turn printer off and then back on and it's fine. I have a pic printed on OEM ink and this ink. I can't tell the difference and neither can anybody I've asked. No reservations about buying these again.
I print fotos for reference for oil painting, acting headshots, occasional art print and photo for display and for the price these inks do a fine job. If I were a pro photographer, of course I’d stick with Canon but I’d probably be using a higher end printer then. Cheers
Sadly, I have purchased this ink twice...the first time the ink was fantastic. Clear, vibrant, long lasting. The second batch I purchased sadly ALL of the photos have now faded. This means the gifts I gave as well....embarrassing. And of course, it is outside the return window as I purchase inks ahead of time so as to not get caught in a project without ink. Sadly, I would not purchase this again, nor would I recommend them anymore.
UPDATE JAN 2021: This item almost DOUBLED IN PRICE. Seriously? If it stays this costly, no it isn't worth it. Back to the search for cheaper ink again, I guess.
I just started creating prints of my artwork (using the Canon Pixma Pro100 Printer, clip studio as the program), and wanted a cheaper alternative to the canon ink prices. Overall I'm pretty happy with these. I've noticed that it prints art files and scans a little better than actual photographs (probably due to my artwork being softer lines and colors that a true and blue photograph), but for what I need it for it does very well! Still trying to make it a perfect match, but it's a solid 90% of the way there, so I use this ink quite a bit. I always have a backup pack of these, but can honestly say it's a solid product, and I've never had complaints of the print quality, or color fading or anything like that (knock on wood). Is it exactly the canon ink, not *quiiiite* there, Magenta goes pretty fast (though to be honest I do think that's just the printer); but is it worth the cost difference so I can relay those savings to my clients? Absolutely. The *only* reason it's not perfect is it's just a hair duller than the cannon ink, and a little heavy on the light gray. You wouldn't notice it unless you knew what you were looking for in a direct comparison. Hope this helps!
