There was a mistake made by your warehouse personnel well over 1 1/2 ago.
16 October 2013
Summary: When I discovered this error, I notified Amazon received a wonderful surprise recently ... I was credited back for this purchase so that I might re-order and receive the correct one. I hadn't had a need for a replacement and always keep spares on hand. It was then that I discovered the error.
Summary: I have had my ink for less than a week and printed two sheets with little text and no images. Today I have "low black ink". This is so frustrating!! Is this a refill and sold as a new cartridge?
Summary: It was not a new genuine Cannon PG-40 cartridge as advertised. It was a refurbished refill clone. It only worked for 1 day and then the printer refused to work with it. The printer would not work until this cartridge was replaced with a real Cannon PG-40. This refurbished refill clones are lower quality and less reliable. Don't buy them.
Summary: The Purchase Was Easy And The Price Was Wright But When I Got My Ink Cartrige And Installed The Primter Sent A Message To The Computer The Ink Level Was Low.I Send An Email To Seller Telling In What Was Happening He Told Me What To Do And The Message Will Go Away I Did And It Did Not Go Away i tryed This Serverial Times And The Message Has Never Gone Away,I Also Bought Another Cartride At The Same Time With The Same Results.
Summary: Bought this cartridge in a combo pack with the CL-41 and some photo paper. Apparently, the cartridges are only filled with enough ink to print out as many photos that are in the pack, which I didn't care about, I just wanted a good deal on printer ink! Printed out about 100 pages of double lined text and it was already nearly completely empty, ridiculous. Supposedly the 50 & 51 high capacity are the way to go. I'll have to try and see.
Summary: I bought an MP470 printer on 9/4/08. I put in a full black ink cartridge (PG-40)and made no more than 30-35 copies on regular paper. It shows that it needs to be replaced. I called Canon and was told that the average number of pages would be 355 for one PG-40 cartridge. I thought the cartridge might be defective but the tech support person tells me that it would show an "error" on the printer if that was the case.
Summary: I can spend $100 on a new cartridge for my NEC laser printer, and get 2 years use out of it. OR, I can spend $25 on THIS cartridge for my Canon printer, and get two WEEKS out of it. Do the math. Canon ought to be ashamed of offering a product with so little actual output per dollar. Generally I LIKE Canon products a lot (e.g. their cameras) and so I am shocked at the short life of this cartridge.
