      3-year warranty on our own-brand cartridges
      We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
      Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
      We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
      Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
      1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
      2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
      3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.

      Some people worry that own-brand cartridges might damage their printers. We know from experience that ours don’t.
      To reassure you, we guarantee that we’ll repair or replace your printer—for free—in the unlikely event that it gets damaged by an own-brand cartridge. This is regardless of how old your printer is. We can afford to offer this because problems are almost unheard of.
      Some people whose printers are less than a year old worry that an own-brand cartridge might invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. This isn’t true. By law, the manufacturers aren’t allowed to invalidate your warranty if you use own-brand cartridges. If something does go wrong, and our own-brand cartridges are to blame, we’ll take over the manufacturer’s warranty, offer you phone support and repair or replace your printer if needed.

    Delivery of Canon MP270 colour ink cartridges

    Sorry, we only deliver within the UK.

    Answered by Bianca Henderson (Staff Member) - about 6 years ago
  • At the moment my cartridges numbers are black 510 and colour 511 but you're showing different numbers, namely 512 black and 513 colour. Have I been using the wrong cartridges? That may explain why they're blocking up! If you can confirm that PG510 and CL513 are the correct numbers then I will order them? Many thanks, Ian Gregory.

    Canon MP270 cartridge numbers

    Any of the ink cartridges listed on this page (PG-510, PG-512, CL-511 and CL-513) will work in the Canon Pixma MP270 printer. It appears that you've been using the standard capacity ink cartridges which are the PG-510 black ink cartridge and the CL-511 tri-colour ink cartridge. You can also use high capacity cartridges instead of the standard cartridges you're currently using so instead of buying the PG-510 black cartridge you could buy the PG-512 high capacity black cartridge. The CL-513 high capacity tri-colour cartridge can also be used instead of the CL-511 standard capacity tri- colour cartridge in this printer. It will depend on how much ink you use and how much you'd like to spend on your replacement cartridges as to whether or not you opt for the high capacity Canon Pixma MP270 ink cartridges. We also sell cheaper compatible PG-512 and CL-513 high capacity ink carridges which are even more economical and offer you the lowest cost-per-print. Because the cartridges you've been using have the correct numbers we wouldn't advise you that any problems with them are compatibility related. It's more likely that you'll need to run a cleaning cycle to prevent any dried ink that may have accumulated on the printheads from causing blockages.

  • In the booklet with my Canon Pixma MP270 printer it lists a Canon FINE cartridge in black with 320 nozzles and a colour cartridge with 384 x 3 nozzles. What's the difference between these cartridges and the ones listed as Canon FINE cartridges PG-510 or PG-512 black and CL-513 or CL-511 colour. Does it matter which one I buy or is one better than the other? I look forward to your reply.

    Pixma MP270 ink cartridges

    Canon's FINE cartridge system combines the ink tank and printhead in one single unit so by replacing the Canon PG-510, PG-512, CL-511 or CL-513 FINE ink cartridges in your PIxma MP270 you'll be replacing the ink and the printhead at the same time. The Canon PG-512 and CL-513 are high capacity ink cartridges that contain more ink than the standard capacity Canon PG-510 and CL-511 ink cartridges. The only difference between these cartridges is the volume of ink, there's no difference in the quality of output as they use the same type of ink and printhead in a larger capacity cartridge.

Canon Pixma MP270 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MP270 printer

Our Verdict:

The award winning Canon MP270 inkjet printer is an affordable, compact, multifunction printer. Canon has positioned the MP270 as a budget home printing device that's also capable of scanning and photocopying. Don't expect laser speeds or lab-quality prints; the MP270 is reliable, however, and as a home printer offers a level of performance that's more than adequate.

Design

The stylish and compact design is similar to Canon's other PIXMA printers and is suitable for the smallest of bedrooms or studies. The control panel on the top of the printer has buttons for scanning and copying and the paper feed at the rear can hold an impressive 100 sheets. The inkjet also comes with a PictBridge socket to allow you to print directly from a camera. Access to the Canon MP270's ink cartridges is under the scanner section, which is easy to get to.

Advantages

Print speeds are fairly good with plain text documents taking around 8.4ppm and colour graphics a spritely 4.8ppm. Normal print quality is good for day-to-day documents; although not as impressive as Canon's four and six-colour printers, the MP270 is more than adequate for home applications. Plain text prints were equally as good, lettering appeared clear and dark with no signs of fading.

Disadvantages

Canon have overlooked the importance of connectivity. Unfortunately the MP270 lacks support for any of the major memory cards or USB sticks. Canon also opted for a single USB port as opposed to Ethernet or wireless – this may pose a problem for anyone in a household with more than one computer.
