When you run out of ink you have to get it asap and B&H has the best prices for this type of ink.[...] and your back in business

Like having a magician in your printer!

I barely printed anything, and poof!, half the cyan is gone. Now I print in greyscale only for text because it reduces color ink usage.

        Comments about Canon CLI-221 Cyan Ink Tank:

        I've tried the generics and refills and they just don't compare to the name brand cartridges. Unfortunately they are still relatively expensive considering how often the need to be replaced.

            I use Canon ink only, to get consistent resultss. However, the MP 980 guzzles ink.
