キヤノン PG-210XL ブラック・インク・カートリッジ 並行輸入品
The Original Canon PG-210 Extra Large Ink cartridge delivers extra sharp black text and graphics consistently. It yields up to 400 pages. It is compatible with Canon Pixma MP240, MP480, MP490, MX330 printers. It weighs 0.18 lbs. Create striking documents and photos with ease when you use the Canon 2973B001 ink to print your documents in various formats. The FINE technology in the cartridge ensures that your professional quality documents remain crisp and smudge free. Prints resist fading for quality that lasts.
NET take out the cartridges, gently shake em up then re-install. You will still get the low ink lights but I've made more than 100 copies after those lights appear. Seems to be a ploy to encourage waste of ink and therefore more sales for the cartridges.
From the "inksmartshopping" website I found this blurb about these cartridges: "What's the difference between PG-210 and PG-210XL?
The Canon PG-210 contains a 9ml of black pigment ink, XL version contains 15ml of ink. So 210XL gives you 66% more ink (15ml vs 9ml). The Canon 210XL cartridge lasts much longer than the simple 210 cartridge. The Black XL sizes give you 82% more pages* for about 35% more price."
PG-210: 9ml, 220 pages*
PG-210XL: 15ml, 401 pages*
The XL cartridges are actually a better deal. I don't use my printer very often and the ink doesn't dry up. When I do use my printer, the actual print seems to be a bit clearer and cleaner, dries quickly on paper and looks professional.
Would I purchase again, yes everytime! I always get Canon's cartridges, I don't get the remanufactured ones. Hope this helps you!
I would happily rate these tanks a 5 if they were more reasonably priced, but sadly name brand ink still refuses to surrender their inflated prices and as such that is my reason behind giving them 4 stars. If competitors can offer the same tank for $5-$10 cheaper why can't canon, or offer a buyback program or something to rewards customers for their loyalty as HP has done.
