Good combo pack - but wishing for an XL verison
I have always stuck with Canon OEM ink, because the results and reliability are worth the extra cost to me (plus printer manufacturers are making it increasingly problematic to use non-OEM solutions). The good news is this is genuine OEM ink from Canon, and will work just fine in my new MP6320 printer or other printers that use the PGI-250/CLI-251 series inks.
The only thing missing from this combo pack is Pigment Black ink; all of the Canon inkjets that use the CLI-251 colors also require a PGI-250 Pigment Black ink tank for text. Since you may go through more or less Pigment Black depending on what you print (text documents vs. color photos), leaving Pigment Black out of this combo makes some sense. Just be sure to order a Canon Ink PGI-250 PGBK Individual Ink Tank or Canon Ink PGI-250 PGBK XL Individual Ink Tank in addition to this combo.
One gripe about the ink tanks themselves (besides the fact the amount of ink supplied continues to shrink over time) is that they are totally opaque. I prefer earlier Canon tanks (such as the Canon CLI-221 2946B004 4-Color Value Pack that are either clear or have a clear window to eyeball the amount of ink left. With the CLI-251 ink tanks you must rely on the printer to tell you when to replace the ink, and occasionally printers get it wrong and tell you a tank is empty when it isn't.
Note: what I *really* want is a value combo featuring the XL sized ink tanks, which are rated by Canon to last 100% longer for the color tanks and 50% longer for the Pigment Black. But as of May 2013 it seems like these are only sold individually. (See first comment for more info on page yields.)

Beautiful colors when used with Canon papers & Canon Pixma ...
Results are much better than any online photo store I've used - i.e. CVS, Snapfish, Shutterfly.
I used to work in photography and YES there is a difference if you print at home using Canon paper & inks.
The cartridges just do not last very long and not cost effective for me to continue to use.
(I get about 50 4x6" prints loading up all 6 necessary ink tanks using my Pixma 7520.)
After reading reviews, have been trying to 'push it' and print after lights come on to change ink. So far it is true that I can print a lot more that way. . .
Would LOVE for these inks to be cost effective because they are stunning.

no more egregious than any others I have used
It is OK, I feel defeated writing about any ink cartridges for home printers because in my experience they are all so expensive and do not last very long, regardless of the brand. So, this package is no more egregious than any others I have used.
