    3rd party CLI-8 & PGI-5 carts with auto resettable chips, is the ink monitoring ability still available, or is it disabled?

    I'm reading conflicting reports. Printer is a iP4300 (if that matters)

    @videobruce, Ink monitoring is a bit of a hit and miss when using ARC chips and are terribly unreliable, when you first fill the carts and inset them into the printer the ink monitoring works fine until you turn off the printer.

    The next time you use the printer the ink monitoring will be unreliable because the ARC chips reset the ink levels back to full each time you power off or remove the cartridges from the machine.

    A set of OEM carts and chips would prove to be much more reliable than any compatible cart could ever be and with the use of a resetter you can have brand new carts and chips every time and you never need worry about ink monitoring again, they would also help to preserve the life of your precious iP4300..

    Thanks for the reply, I didn't get any e-mail message for your response.
    To start I'm using the set of the original Canon carts, after refilling were reset with a chip ressetter. I also bought a empty set of carts with manually resetting chips that I haven't filled yet.
