I rated this product in March of 2011 just to let others know how good this ink was, albeit being short lived and expensive. I will never complain about the high cost of ink for the rest of my life. 8 weeks after I wrote this little review, I was contacted by a major online marketing company, and a short time later I was the proud recipient of a National grand prize of $1,000. They were using a prize gimmick to get more people to write reviews. It was the first time I ever won anything, and it was for the little package of grey ink. Thank You B@H, and Canon. Great products.

I use this ink cart. in my canon mg8120 along with 5 more cartridges. Cart. works good but last for a very short time with limited use. All 6 seem to go out at the same time. The price of 6 is about half the price of the printer. This is my fourth set, so you get the picture!

                  I must look more closely at printing in general, and black & white printing in particular. I'm very happy with my Canon multifunction printer, the inks have nice colors, but my early attempts at black & white printing came out reddish, despite the 3 black (or grey, I include this one) cartidges in my printer...

                            Purchased a Canon MG8120 printer and the print quality on photos is simply great! If you count pennies for each print, it may not be the one for you. But I really appreciate the quality of the wireless prints from my laptop and iPhone. I'm sold on Canon and Canon ink!

                            I use this ink cart. in my canon mg8120 along with 5 more cartridges. Cart. works good but last for a very short time with limited use. All 6 seem to go out at the same time. The price of 6 is about half the price of the printer. This is my fourth set, so you get the picture!

                            B&H is the best supplier for supplies and with free shipping it makes it even better.

                              The product is good and the packaging is small. Easy to replace and get several prints from cartridge.

                                Using grey ink for some reason gives a greater tonality than just using shades of black on white. Prints have outstanding depth and range with this ink.
