I often purchase Canon Ink Cartridge for my printer and I usually buy it from a nearby shop instead of an online shopping website as the delivery is usually delayed. Canon cartridges usually last for a long time but it happened twice with me when I could only print 200 pages and then I had to buy a new one. We usually print about 10-20 pages a day due to office work and my children have their school assignments as well so I merely depend on a good cartridge which last long. However, since this is a XL cartridge, it lasts longer than a standard one as it has almost 40% more ink than a normal cartridge. The ink comes out perfectly and does not spread. We majorly use black ink instead of color ink and mostly the pages have many white spaces. I need to refill the ink every 2 weeks due to lot of printing work and this product is just fine for my use. The price is perfect compared to the standard product.
