Ink for Canon printer - Where to buy?


J

JD

I have a Canon Pixma MP170 and want to buy ink for
the black catridge.

For the past hour I have been looking online and
came up with almost nothing.
Does anyone know of a reliable reasonably-priced
source of Canon black ink
(cartridge is PG-40) or ink of equal quality?

Many thanks for the help :)

I don't know where you're located, or what you qualify as reasonable,
but it appears that Staples carries that ink.
Thanks G.

Ink in cartridges or ink in bottles?

Came up with nothing? In this case I would suggest to search for option
to refill it yourself. I don't own any Canon printer to know much about
it/them, but many vendors selling the refillable ink cartridge with ARC
(Auto Reset Chip) for most if not all current Inkjet printer (I assume that
the MP170 is inkjet printer).

And if it's really that none available for you to find, then I would
suggest to shop for other model or different brand those have 3rd party or
cheap ink.

Thanks Joel,

The MP170 is an inkjet. I have located several
places that sell the refill kits
and am still mulling over it to make up my mind.
There is a fairly wide variation in prices.

I'm sure I have it under control now. Paul found
the best deal and it appears to be at:

Have a great week :)

*IF* they do have refilled available then it sounds like you can refill
your own.

- The Price, if you refill your own then the price is around 10-25 cents per
bottle.

- But first you have to buy the Refillable cartridges and Ink. Refillable
cartridge you can chose between $12-20 or $100-200+ for the whole set. The
most expensive ink catridge won't make the printer run any better or safer,
but it could make someone feel better (?).

Me? I shop for the lowest price for both refillable cartridge and ink. I
paid $18 for the set of 6 cartrdiges, and around $25 for 6 bottles on ink.
And I have been refilling like crazy for little over a year now, the lowest
ones still have around 1/5 left.

Wow! I haven't looked at any cartidge for more than $3-4 each for many
years. I started refilling my own from the very early days, then I found
some companies selling the refilled catridge for around $1.50 - $2.50 each
so I stopped refilling to buy them instead. Then I upgraded to newer
printer with much tougher protection, some companies selling remanufactured
catridge for around $10-12 per cartridge but it's too expensive for me, so I
started refilling my own again.

They're astonishing prices. Do you know any places
in Northern CA where I could
buy them?

To my disappointment, I tried to buy the LD
Products refill for the Canon, but their website
had an error when it came to the purchase and I
had not the time to wait so I bought a refilled
cartridge, 1/2 mile from where I live, for $17 and
it works like a champ.
I'll order those LD refills at my leisure to have
it for the next fillings.

Thanks for your input.

I never checked to know they were from North or South CA, I just shop for
the reasonable price and it can come from anywhere on earth. IOW, I don't
buy locally but online order.

Me? even $4-5 per cartridge is still 1-2 too expensive for me. Like I
said it costs only 10-25 cents to refill myself.

OK Joel, tell us the secret. Where do you get
those refills?

At:
http://www.ldproducts.com/Canon/Refill/Ink-Cartridge/Black/PG-40/1080-Product.html
I can get:
"InkTec Refill Kit for Canon PG-30, PG-40 and
PG-50 Black
Our Price: $10.95

Canon PG-30, PG-40 and PG-50 Black Inkjet refill
kit includes the following: two 20 ml bottles of
black ink for 2 refills, two injection needles, a
manual, a screw tool, and a pair of plastic
gloves. Take advantage of the great savings by
refilling your cartridge twice with Ink refills
for your Canon PG-30, PG-40 and PG-50!"

However, I can't find Canon bottled ink alone.

This is the "Ancient Chinese Secret" and you have to promise not to tell
anyone, deal?

- Open one of your most favorious web browser (like IE, Opera, FireFox etc.)

- Go to "www.google.com" and most current browsers have included Google as
search-engines.

- TYPE in the printer model, or better yet the model (type) of CARTRIGE
example "blab blab refill" "blab blab refill ink" or whatever you wish to
find.

- Then place the order on the store offers the lowest price.

That's how I have been doing for decades, yes DECADES because I started
mail-order ages before Internet was first available. Or before internet,
many of us have to shop from computer MAGAZINES

What I am trying to say that my secret is not to care about the name of
store but the PRICE, and I shop all over the world. If I have to name the
favorious place then I may say "HONG KONG" often give me a much better deal
than most places in US (or you may get a lower price with free S/H than just
the S/H from US).
