  • I have a new Pixma iX6850 printer with its setup CLI-551 and PGI-550 cartridges installed. Can I use XL cartridges with this printer as well, or are they not compatible? Thank you, Tony McLean.

    XL cartridge use for Canon iX6850

    Yes, any of the ink cartridges listed on this page wil work in the Canon Pixma iX6850 printer, including the high capacity PGI-550BKXL and CLI-551C/M/YXL ink cartridges. The only difference is that the high capacity cartridges contain more ink. You can also mix high capacity cartridges with standard ones, provided that you have one cartridge installed for each of the four colours (black, cyan, magenta and yellow).

  • Hi, I buy my inks from you for the Canon iX6550 printer but am looking at getting the Canon Pixma iX6850 printer. Do they use the same cartridges? Many thanks, Craig.

  • Hi, I would like to ask how Cartridge Save Canon iX6850 ink cartridges compare to original brand cartridges? I'm more concerned about the ink you use as I do a lot of prints. Is the ink the same? As I do a lot of prints, I require the best ink and I'm happy with the genuine Canon iX6850 cartridges but would like to save by using Cartridge Save iX6850 ink cartridges. Would you recommend your cartridges or should I stick with the genuine cartridges? Thanks for your time, Des.
