Not an easy colour to get for my old canon printer. Very happy with quality Can980on Pixma MP980


Good product - unfortunately doesn't seem to last very long. Would be good to be able to get a compatible cartridge.

A member of the Stinkyink.com team has responded to this review. View more information.

Unfortunately only a small number of Canon models use the grey cartridge, compared to the other colours in that range. I'm afraid that this means that the manufacturers that we work with haven't seen the demand for a compatible, and so one isn't currently available.

The Canon original inks tend to last a slightly shorter length of time than the compatible equivalents as they have marginally less ink in them. Changing your printing to draft mode, where appropriate, should help it, and the other inks, to last a little longer.

Excellent product. I have a Canon Pixma MP980 and find it really easy to replace the cartriges. The print quality is first class and I would certainly recomment this product to other people.
