That's a pretty good deal indeed.Seems like a good start point, found some T5431 for P9600 expired on 2019.
I could get them for around 10usd each.
Just found I am wrong about the Claria Home ref 202 cartridge. It's actually pigment black + CMY dye.
But the driver behavior for chromaticity on XP245 seems like similar to the L365. Except the Dmax, the driver on XP245 limits like L655 & WF2650.
I've some MegaTank to test in the next days will try on one with an expired ink, maybe a god news (refilling with all 4 original Canon ones is over 120€ in France). What do you think about ?and these cartridges can be found in Europe beyond the expiration date pretty much discounted ; I never had problems with such expired cartridges.
Those mentioned expired ink cartridges are filled with Lucia (Pro) pigment inks, most Megatank models run with CMY dye inks, and I would not recommend to swap pigment against dye inks in such models.I've some MegaTank to test in the next days
Tried T5431 PB on the same 130gsm Inkjet cast coated paperThat's a pretty good deal indeed.
It's the L365 driver print to XP-2101 printer on Premium Photo Glossy Quality, I also check the Matte High.L=24 is not a very good black level at all, it's the ink in combination with the coating of the paper. Please add a detail to the images - which printer did you use for the particular prints ? And which driver settings did you use ?
I see quite strong traces of the pizza wheels at the paper out patch - that is a sign that the coating swells for a short period - is it a cast coated paper or a PE/RC paper ? I remember from own tests that cast coated papers don't deliver as good a deep black level as PE/RC papers did. I got down to L=1.1 on a RC paper with the Canon PFI-105 black.
It's the L365 driver print to XP-2101 printer on Premium Photo Glossy Quality, I also check the Matte High.
The paper still the 130gsm Inkjet cast coated paper.
I would try on my RC glossy paper later.
I also check the Stylus Pro 4000 glossy paper behavior, it seems like not only full PG black channel. Other 6 ink channelsView attachment 14237 also print something when it's black.
