      I have been using cartridges for my Cannon XP520 for approximately 4 years. I have always been very pleased with the product and efficient way my order has been processed. All my orders have been received the following day, even when ordered late afternoon. I would definitely recommend Cartridge Save.

      I usually purchase my cartridges from yourselves so used to having good quality product at a reasonable price, but the first yellow cartridge did not register in the Canon MP970 printer so had to use an alternative one which worked fine.

      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.
    • Printer protection guarantee
      Our cartridges won't damage your printer—guaranteed
      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.

      In summary, there’s zero risk in using our own-brand cartridges.

Canon Pixma MP520 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MP520 printer

Our Verdict:

This versatile all-in-one device is aimed at home users and discerning amateur photographers looking for a photo printer with convenient extra features to increase productivity. Overall, the Canon Pixma MP520 is well-built and delivers high quality performance, but it is lacking speed and some key features, getting in the way of productivity.

Design

The Canon Pixma MP520 is 16.5 pounds and measures 17.9x14.9x6.8 inches (WxDxH). There is a flatbed A4 scanner on top, beside the organised control panel which is covered by a lid when not in use. The 2-inch colour LCD is embedded under the adjustable lid. The printer offers a PictBridge USB port and 2 built-in memory card readers. There are 2 ways to feed paper into the Canon Pixma MP520 — through the 150-sheet rear input (for plain paper) and the 110-sheet front input (for B5 or A4 only). This printer is integrated with the 4-ink individual cartridge system.

Advantages

The individual ink cartridge system of the Canon Pixma MP520 means lower costs per page. Print quality is excellent, while the PictBridge port and memory card slots make it easier to print directly from compatible devices. Featuring 2 paper feeds, the Canon Pixma MP520 is versatile and efficient in handling various types of media. The copier and printer are fast and capable of producing up to 30 ppm in monochrome and 20 ppm in colour.

Disadvantages

There is no automatic document feeder. Scan speed and quality could use improvement. The PictBridge cannot be used for external storage devices. The control panel lacks the 'one-touch' feature for transferring images to the PC when a memory card is inserted – something that is standard in models that are comparable to the Canon Pixma MP520.
