I use my printer to print photos, and I was very pleased with the quality of this ink. It was true to color, vivid and exact, just as the canon brand ink is. I didn't have any problems with the ink clogging or running, it is excellent. I would definetly buy this ink again.

This is the first time I tried a compatible ink for my printer. I'm verry happy that it works. I put the prints side by side with the canon ink, I can't tell the difference. I have not try to print photos, so I don't know if there is a difference there.
I have been using generic refill cartridges for years with few problems. This time I have a problem. One cartridge would not light when installed. At first the printer would not recognize the cart, After various work arounds the cart is recognized and the print out is good color and no smearing. The light still does not work. I have yet to use all the ink so I cannot judge life of the ink supply and I cannot tell if the printer will notify me when the ink is low. I will pass on buying this deal again as it is a quality control problem. You do not need problems when you are in the middle of a print job. Plus point is that overstock customer service is knowledgeable and helped me to get a credit for the bad cart !
I've been purchasing these ink cartridges from Overstock.com for over 2 years for my Canon MX870 printer. These cartridges work great and have never failed me. In addition, you get all three colors for less than the price of 1 at the office supply stores. In addition, I exchange the empties for $2.00 in rewards at one of the office supply stores and this makes the cartridges practically free! Simply can not be beat. Highly recommend for anyone who uses ink like me. Overstock.co has save me a ton of money with this product!!
overall, when it works it is good. BUT, half the cyan cartridges were not recognizable by my printer. I tried all the tricks, but nothing worked. So, it is a gamble whether to buy from them again. Good prices, but iffy on the performance.
Bought this for my Cannon MP 620. I have only used this to print normal to low quality images on normal paper. I have not used it for printing on glossy photo paper, yet. Fit was perfect and my printer had no problem recognizing it. Much cheaper alternative than the name brand ink.

I am disappointed. The only cartridge I used so far of the three is the magenta. It barely comes through as a color at all - it is very washed out.
- How accurate was the sizing? not applicable
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The cartridge fits my printer nicely but the color is very washed out.
I haven't had a chance to use the ink because one of the inks had a leak when I received it. Next time I'll just buy the manufacturers ink.

I got 3 cartridges for half the price of 1 at Office Depot which by the way, wasn't filled entirely.

Printers are cheaper then the ink required to use them. It is wonderful to find ink that is affordable. It saves hundreds of dollars overtime. I can't tell the difference in the quality of the ink. Depending on the manufacturer, sometimes the packaging is not as strong as the name brand, so you need to unscrew the caps with care, but I can accept this trade-off. I have a Canon printer, and Overstock offers a variety of ink from different retailers. I can't experienced any problems with any of them.
