I think high quality compatible ink cartridges are the best choice,I always use them.
For the Epson most definitely but can be a disaster when used in Canon printers,
just stick with OEM's..:)

Well i've been refilling jet tec carts for the pixma mg5250 for some time now and can report on no problems to date. The chip resets o.k with my resetter and to date i have had no problems. The ink monitor seems a little adrift on ink remaining, but if you refill when the guage hits the 2 bar level it's no problem. The clip system they use for sealing them is brilliant it snaps back on using silicone seals and no messing about using tape to seal the ink outlet port or breather. Personally i can't recommend them enough, the opaque one side makes the colours easy to refill to correct level, the blacks are a little harder to see but is still visible in good light.
No probs! :)

The first post should mention that even Pro canon printers have a limit of 58cm in lenght for banner (panorama) printing, so you can't print any longer than that. Compared to EPSON this is something to have in mind if you need this feature.

But this thread was specificly about the ease of refilling and not about banner printing,
so why would it be necessary to included it. ?

Besides Epson also have limits on the lengths that can be outputted,
it’s not just Canon printers that are affect by this restriction..

For epson there is http://mirage.dinax.de - clearly shows that commercial hacking can be done

"Are you tired of being limited in print length? Mirage has no limit. Print panorama images with ease and without any limit. Print 30.000px and more. If Adobe® Photoshop® can handle it, the Mirage Photoshop Plug-in can print it!"

EPSON - software controlled printer therefore if limit is set in software it is easy to remove.
CANON - hardware driven, the veawing and almost everyhting is dome by chip inside the printer. If limit is set there very hard to remove.

When choosing a printer is very important to understand the limits of the machine, I like my Pro 9000, but I would like to print a panorama once in a while too. Therefore I got brother printer that I have unlimited printing too.

Hi Val.

It’s a case of Ops, the Pro 10 is very easy to refill but there are not a great deal of supplies
for it at this present time.

The PGI-72 cartridges are exactly the same as the PGI-9 cartridges, just with a different chip
on them, so that should help you find the many post on here on how ridiculously easy
it is to refill them.

There are no exact ink sets ready for the Pro 10 just yet but it’s coming very shortly
from The regular ink suppliers and so is a redsetter, but you can still use the ink set from the Pro 9500
till then with just a little profiling.
