The Canon Ink Cartridge does an amazing job with the Canon printer. I have tried other cartridges, however, I get the best printing quality when using the genuine Canon Color Ink Cartridge. Also, it seems that when I installed generic cartridges, we did not get as many printings as we do with the Canon cartridge. Another outstanding feature of the Canon Color Ink Cartridge is the price. It is very inexpensive to get color prints that look beautiful when utilizing the Canon Color Ink Cartridge. Great job Canon and thank you Staples for carrying this product!
