    Refillable Cartridge for Canon PIXMA Pro series?

    I have found this Refillable cartridge set for my Canon PIXMA Pro 9000 mark II.
    The link: http://cgi.ebay.com/CISS-CIS-Canon-P...item3cabf551f0
    Does any body here have any info on how reliable these cartridges are? Is it worth it buying it?

    Thanks!

    I use this one with my Pro9000 MKI

    Works not bad, bit of a hassle setting it up and getting it all fitting correctly. BUT has been perfect ever since, after a few profile runs on various papers its really no different to the Canon inks. Actually the picture on your link looks remarkably similar to the one on the link above.

    God i remember that refillable kit... utter crap.

    The change of weather made the ink get lighter or thicker which completely fubard the setup.

    Went back to regular ink cartridges, never looked back.

    I've used re-fillables for years. The ones from Ink2Image are pretty good, but sometimes have schizoid chips in them. You don't need a chip re-setter with these, but I've had them screw up. The BEST solution I think is to use up the ink in a Canon cartridge, drill a small hole in the top, put a small machine screw in for a plug, buy a chip re-setter here:

    and fill them with bulk ink. Ink2Image does sell a plug-n-play inkset for these Canon printers that is a very good match. Buying the filled OEM Canon cartridges is the least hassle, but costs six to seven times as much per cartridge.

    I've never refilled. How do you know the ink is exactly the same as the OEM? If it isn't aren't all your profiles off? I have used Epson printers for years (latest are a 3800 and a 3880) and have not had any problems with the OEM inks. For me, the savings do not outweigh the disadvantages. Maybe if I was doing only B&W I would feel differently.
