  • Why do I need an additional black PGI550 PGBK cartridge and why isn't it included in the set?

    Canon PGI-550PGBK ink query

    This genuine Canon PGI-550PGBK black ink cartridge contains a different type of ink to the Canon CLI-551BK cartridge. The Canon PGI-550PGBK cartridge has pigment ink for printing durable text documents. The CLI-551BK cartridge has dye-based ink for printing graphics. If your printer takes all five cartridges you do need to have them all installed. Most printers only require four cartridges so Canon only produce a multipack of the CLI-551BK/C/M/Y inks. If you do require the additional PGI-550PGBK cartridge this must be bought separately.

    Answered by Carla McDonald (Staff Member) - about 3 years ago
  • I'm just wondering if there's a non-genuine Canon alternative to the PGI-550PGBK cartridge as I can only see alternatives to the PGI-550BKXL ink?

    Non-Canon alternative to PGI-550PGBK

    This is correct. Unfortunately, we only have a compatible Canon PGI-550PGBKXL high capacity black ink cartridge and don't currently stock a direct replacement for the Canon PGI-550PGBK standard capacity black ink cartridge. However, you can use our compatible PGI-550PGBKXL ink cartridge to replace either of the genuine Canon PGI-550PGBK or PGI-550PGBKXL ink cartridges because the cartridges work in the same slot.

    Answered by Bianca Henderson (Staff Member) - about 4 years ago
  • Are these compatible PGI-550PGBK ink cartridges and can they be refilled?

    PGI-550 PGBK cartridge details

    This is a genuine and brand new Canon PGI-550PGBK black ink cartridge which is manufactured by Canon and hasn't been refilled. We don't recommend refilling Canon PGI-550PGBK ink cartridges yourself as we don't stock a refill kit that you can use to correctly refill these cartridges. However, we do stock a compatible Canon PGI-550PGBKXL high capacity black cartridge which is cheaper than the Canon cartridge and contains more ink than the standard PGI-550PGBK cartridge. Please see: http://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/PGI-550PGBKXL-CPT.html

    Answered by Amanda Garnett (Staff Member) - about 5 years ago
  • What's the difference between the Canon PGI-550 PGBK black cartridge and the CLI-551 BK black cartridge? I want to order back ups for future use but don't know why there are two choices? Many thanks.

    PGI-550 compared to CLI-551 black ink

    The Canon PGI-550PGBK black cartridge contains pigment based ink and is used for printing text documents as it has good archival properties and smudge / water resistance. The Canon CLI-551BK black cartridge contains dye-based ink and is used for photo printing or printing black graphics.

    By Mary on

    This is about the third or fourth order I've placed with CartridgeSave, and they are brilliant. The ink for my printer is available at a lot of places where I shop, but I think CartridgeSave's price is certainly competitive if not a great deal cheaper, but the service is outstanding. It's easy to place an order, and in this case, I ordered late afternoon online, and early the next morning the postman handed me the package. Brilliant! What I REALLY love are their company pens, which are superb, and they usually include one with the order, which is free postal delivery as well.

    I've been a fan of Canon printers for many years and this cartridge gives excellent quality, even when using 'draft' or 'greyscale' mode. As a writer, I always print out a hard copy of my novels and have been very satisfied with the number of pages per cartridge.
