Quality Ink but Not For Long

Canon PG 510
Advantages: High quality ink, easy to install
Disadvantages: Doesn't last long for the price
I bought this ink from a large well know office supply shop for about £20 as I needed it straight away and didn't have time to wait for it to be delivered. It is definitely worth shopping around especially online as you can find a lot of better prices.
The official line is that it should print on average 220 pages from its 9ml of ink. Personally I find this one runs out far too quickly, haven't ever actually counted the amount of pages, especially for the price and when printing any pictures. The quality of the ink however is very good and it is always used up completely when my printer says it is empty.
Installation is very easy, you only have to remove a small orange strip and it is ready to use. Personally I would always go for the high yield PG-512 as it lasts nearly twice as long, 15ml of ink, and you can get some very good deals online. I have also had it refilled but I find the quality level drops significantly.
This product is fine for basic printing and if you don't have massive amounts of pages or pictures to print.
Summary: Always shop around and if possible buy the higher yield ink
