3Warning - this is not a complete refill pack. Doesn't contain all the cartridge colors you need to refill your printer.
I don't know if all Canon printers are like this or just mine (PIXMA MG7120), but I get no warning when my ink is running low. I just go to print something - usually in a hurry - and discover that I suddenly can't print because I'm out of ink. So at least in my case, it's critical to always have plenty of refills lying around.

I ordered this pack when I first bought my printer. Not being very familiar with the printer yet, I assumed it was a refill pack that contained all the colors my printer needs. (My old printer had only used 4 cartridges.) And I never looked at it that carefully until the first time I ran out of ink. That's when I discovered that this pack does not contain the color that had run out - black. Yes, it contains a black cartridge, but that black is only for printing photos. The everyday black ink for text and artwork is PGBK250, and it needs to be purchased separately. So I had to run out to the store in a hurry.

Just a few days later, I suddenly ran out of ink again. This time, it was the gray cartridge... which also doesn't come with this refill pack. And they didn't have that one at my local store, so I had to order it online, which left me completely unable to print anything until it arrived.

Obviously, black and gray are going to be the two colors that run out the quickest for most people, and your printer won't work if you're out of any one color, even if you don't need that color for the thing you're printing. So be sure that if you're ordering backup ink, you also buy the black and gray cartridges IN ADDITION to this pack.

As for the ink itself, I have no complaints. The cartridges are very easy to install and I've had no experience with them leaking or running. They do run out quickly. I do very little printing these days, and I still find I have to replace cartridges quite frequently. But I think that's pretty standard with inkjet printers in general.

1They dry up like crazy. If you go more than a few ...
By laffitupfzbl
My husband ordered these as refills for our new printer. We've had them, I dunno, 6 months or so. They dry up like crazy. If you go more than a few days between print jobs, you have to do like a half dozen nozzle checks and cleans before you can even get a clear print or get all colors to print.

They also run out super fast. We probably only print, on average, 20 pages a month, and we've changed these at least twice each color, maybe even 3 times in 6 months. I'm not sure if the nozzles aren't properly engaging and allowing the ink to dry inside, because it's certainly allowing the ink to dry up AT the nozzle.

We are probably going to muddle through the rest of these refills for the next six months or so, but I won't be ordering them again.

2Ink Deficiency
By Serious Reviewer
The ink capacity is undersized for the price and they empty too quickly. I occasionally print with color so replacement shouldn't be so frequent, but i find myself replacing these after printing a maximum of about 20 sheets with some graphics over the course of a month. I have not printed any photo graphs since i owned the printer and the print quality with color is mediocre anyway.
