Summary: When I had ordered these Canon black ink cartridges, I had thought that the price seemed kind of low, but I went ahead and got them anyway. They arrived in a USPS bubble cushioned envelope which was fine. These cartridges came without ANY of their typical Canon boxes. They were however, factory wrapped in their plastic. They'll probably be fine. I'll say that maybe they're saving on some USPS charges?
CAUTION: Ink EXPRESS may not send GENUINE Retail Box item

Summary: Order two different ink from Ink Express. Yellow ink sent was in original retail packaging and black in was in a bubble wrap with paper stating it was genuine. Be cautious when ordering from this third party seller as I have never had any other seller send me just a bubble wrap product. Description of the product is for retail box item. I expect a retail box product. Even if it may be a genuine product, I felt deceived.
Summary: Got these at the end of August and I dont do that much printing and ONLY lasted 3 months. Spending $$$ X 4 each year-Ridiculous! I am going to look for ones that can at least last double the length of time.
