        Comments about Canon CLI-221 Yellow 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.

          Use for everyday and color prints. I know the Canon inks are pricey but the results are consistently excellent.

          B&H definitely eases the price pain.

              I only use the Canon ink in my MP980, so that I can get consistent results. Only drawback is cost - this printer guzzles ink.
