Never a problem with Stinkyink. Cartridges work Faultlessly in my Canon Printer and they are good value for money.


I have been using these compatible cartridges for my Canon MP560 now for a number of years obtained from Stinkyink and they have been excellent


these inks are perfect for my Epson printer. the print quality is good and the cartridges are easy to install. the service from stinkyink.com is first class.


Wouldn't use anyone else for inks. Never had any trouble with compatibility with my Canon Pixma. Why pay top prices when Stinkyink can do it for less and it arrives the next day at no extra cost.


This stinkyink cartridge, and its companions, do excellent work in my printer. The quality of the print is excellent, the definition of the colour is practically perfect and the life length is long. Installation of the 521 and 520 range of cartridges is very simple - only a click needed - and they arrive the day after I have placed the order without fail. I have already recommended them to my friends and family and will continue to do so


Second order placed with Stinkyink after a satisfying first order. Order placement simple on easy to understand website and with clear instructions, giving choice of inks for my printer. For the first time I have deviated from branded ink...yes to save money....and do you know what...it works and is just as good!
I was also impressed with the post order communication and delivery efficiency, plus packaging. All in all a good experience and...to quote Arnie...I'LL BE BACK"

PS I'll probably copy and post this response on other orders placed with this order....I won't apologise for repeating myself...

MP550/Pixma 520. 1)Are the compatibles 'chipped'? 2)Will my printer recognize them and show ink remaining?


Yes, these are chipped. Stinkyink will never sell a cartridge without a chip if it needs one. The ink level will show, yes.
