Canon Printer Cartridge Purchase Guide

Canon Printer Cartridge Purchase Guide

If you are using a new printer for the first time, you may not know which cartridge your printer uses. Never mind, through this guide, we will lead you closer to the printer and take canon printer as an example to analyze how to select the appropriate ink cartridge and help you find the best price alternative ink cartridge. Let’s jump in!

How do you know which cartridge your printer uses?

Each printer has a specific series of printer cartridges for printing. The printer cartridge series is identified by the printer brand name, followed by the cartridge number. For example, Canon uses Canon PG-260 and CLl-261 ink cartridge series.

1. The easiest way to find out which cartridges are suitable for your printer is to open the printer and check which cartridges are currently in the machine.

2. If there is no ink cartridge inside the printer, you can search the printer model on the manufacturer’s website. The manufacturer page of your printer should contain a list of compatible cartridges. You can also search the printer model on v4ink.com, the compatible cartridges will list on the page.

3. You can also refer to the printer user’s guide attached to the machine to confirm the cartridge series.

Standard yield vs. High yield

After you know what series cartridge is compatible for your printer, you will find that they have many different capacities. Common cartridge capacities are divided into standard yield, high yield and extra high yield cartridge.

As the name suggests, different capacities of ink cartridges mean they contain different amounts of ink. Compared with high yield and extra-high yield cartridges, standard yield cartridges have less ink, that is, they can print fewer pages, but their price is usually relatively low. For users who don’t print often, it makes sense to spend less money on standard yield cartridges. But if you print more, it’s more cost-effective to choose high yield version. Because they can usually provide you with 2-3 times the number of printed pages of the standard yield cartridge, but the price is generally not higher than 2 times of the standard cartridge. The extra-high yield option is not common. It has more ink than high yield cartridge. In short, ink cartridges of different capacities have their applicable groups. Before buying ink cartridges, you need to consider according to your actual needs. If you are not sure about your printing capacity, it is recommended to choose standard capacity ink cartridges as a try.

  • How to identify standard yield and high yield cartridge:

Most of Canon ink cartridge models have standard and high yield version, and some contain extra-high option. How to distinguish them? The high yield version usually carries “XL” more than the end of the standard cartridge, while extra-high yield version usually carried “XXL”. Let’s take a look at the following examples:

Canon PG-260 Black ink cartridges only have standard yield and high yield options:

  • Standard yield: Canon PG-260 Black, Prints 180 pages
  • High yield: Canon PG-260XL Black, Prints 400 pages

Canon PG-250 Black ink cartridges have standard, high yield and extra high yield options:

  • Standard yield: Canon PG-250, Prints 300 pages
  • High yield: Canon PG-250XL, Prints 500 pages
  • Extra-High yield: Canon PG-250XXL, Prints 800 pages

Individual cartridge vs. Tri-color cartridge

When purchasing Canon ink cartridges, you will also find that some printers need to be used with multiple cartridges, while others only need to be used with two cartridges. Some color cartridges are individual, while some cartridges contain multiple colors. How should I choose?

  • Individual ink cartridge

This means an ink cartridge only contains one kind of color. Generally, all of the black ink cartridges are individual ink cartridges, and some series of color ink cartridges are individual ink cartridges, such as Canon CLI-251XL, CLI-270XL, CLI-281XXL, etc.

  • Tri-color ink cartridge

This means an ink cartridge contains 3 kinds of colors, it usually contains cyan, yellow and magenta in one cartridge. Such as Canon CL-261XL, CL-246XL, CL-210XL, etc.

The individual ink cartridge is more flexible than the tri-color ink cartridge. Once one of the colors is used up, you only need to change that ink cartridge. However, for tri-color ink cartridge, once one color is used up, you need to replace the whole a tri-color ink cartridge. This means you may have to throw away a cartridge when two colors are still available.

Before you buy an ink cartridge, you can open the inside of your printer to check the slot of the printer. If there are only two slots, it means that the ink cartridge you need to buy is a black and a tri-color ink cartridge. If there are more than 4 slots, it means that the ink cartridge you need to buy is individual ink cartridges.

PG / PGI vs. CL / CLI

If you observe carefully, you will notice that most Canon ink cartridges begin with “PG” and “CL”, as well as “PGI” and “CLI”. What do they mean?

In fact, Canon uses these words to mark their different types of cartridges. “PG” and “PGI” are similar. Both represent that the ink cartridge is filled with pigment based ink, which is very suitable for printing text. This cartridge is usually larger than the “CL” / “CLI” cartridge because Canon knows that most consumers print more documents than color pages. Pigment inks are often more resistant to water and UV than dye-based inks, and can resist fading for up to 200 years.

“CL” is similar to “CLI” and stands for ChromaLife, a term created by canon to mark its dye-based ink. Dye-based ink can print right, vibrant colors, which is very suitable for photo printing. They are more economical than pigment  based ink cartridges, but they get dirty easily.

“PG” ink cartridges usually need to be used together with “CL” ink cartridges (like, PG-260XL and CL-261XL), while “PGI” ink cartridges usually need to be used together with “CLI” cartridges (like, PGI-280XXL and CLI-281XXL). They complement each other and can provide you with professional black-and-white text and colorful pictures.

Original vs. Non-Original

Before buying Canon ink cartridges, you must be most concerned about the price. You will find that the same model of ink cartridges have different prices. What causes the difference in their prices?

Their main difference comes from whether they are original or non-original.

  • Original product

Original ink cartridges are usually expensive because they are made by original printer manufacturers. Original printer manufacturers don’t mind selling their printers at a lower price because they know you have to buy their cartridges for a long time to keep the printer working. Therefore, they will put the profit opportunity on the ink cartridge.

  • Non-original products

Non-original ink cartridges usually include new compatible ink cartridges and remanufactured ink cartridges.

New compatible ink cartridge are brand new and produced by a third-party manufacturer, all its parts are new. It may look different from the original ink cartridge, but it is perfectly compatible with your printer. They usually have the same print volume as the original product, but the price is only half of the original product.

Remanufactured ink cartridges are through recycling original ink cartridge, then cleaning it up, removing the damaged parts and replacing with the new parts, refilling with the new ink and through a strict test to make them reused again. Remanufactured ink cartridges are usually cheaper than original ink cartridges, and their appearance is basically the same as that of original ink cartridges, so they can be perfectly compatible with your printer. In addition, purchasing remanufactured ink cartridges is also better for the environment and can prevent one less ink cartridge from entering the landfill.

To sum up, choosing compatible or remanufactured ink cartridges can save you more money. Choosing a good brand, such as v4ink, can provide you with the best price without sacrificing product quality. V4ink products are auto-produced strictly under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 STMC standards to ensure that each product is 100% compatible with your printer and provide you with excellent printing effects. Using non-original ink cartridge can save you a lot in the long term.

Brother TN450/TN420 vs DR420, what is the difference?

Brother TN450 and DR420

For Brother printers, toner cartridges and drum units need to work together to print and are purchased separately, which easily lead to you purchase the wrong model. In this article, taking the TN450 and DR420 as examples, I will show you the difference between the toner cartridges and drum units.

An Overview of Brother Toner Cartridges and Drum Units

Toner cartridges

The toner cartridge contains powder for printing text and images, and powder (toner) volume determines the yield of the cartridge, so the toner can be offered in a different yield cartridge size. Brother TN450 is the high-yield version of TN420, and the difference between them is that TN450 can print more pages.

Drum units

The drum is a shelf that holds the cartridge and then prints clear and vivid text and images by fixing the toner of the cartridge to paper. A drum unit lasts longer than a toner cartridge. The cartridge is replaced first, and the drum usually needs to be replaced after 3-5 cartridges are used up.

(Toner + Drum) Compo Pack

A toner cartridge is combined with a drum unit as a unit in your printer, so there are specific Brother Toners that are designed to fit into specific Brother Drums such as, TN450 with DR420, TN760 with DR730, and TN750 with DR720. They cannot be mixed, otherwise the size does not match and cannot be printed.

Brother tn450 cartridge and dr420 drum

What is the difference between DR420 and TN450/TN420?

DR420 is a drum unit but TN450 and TN420 are toner cartridges. Brother DR420 like a shelf to support tn450 or tn420 cartridge, and Brother TN450 and TN420 contains toner to create printouts. We know that TN450 cartridges can print more than TN420 cartridges, but DR420 drum units have higher page yields.

Original Price$39.98$58.49$104.99

Shelf Life24-36 Months24-36 Months24-36 Months

You can see that DR420 drum has longer service time than TN420 and TN450 toner cartridges because the page yield of the DR420 is almost 5 times of the TN450 and 10 times of the TN420.

But you will find that the original cartridge and the drum are expensive to be replaced. At this time, you can consider v4ink compatible TN450 cartridge and DR420 drum unit. They have same print yield but cost a lot less, so that v4ink doesn’t need to sell standard yield TN420 toner. V4ink products are precisely designed to deliver clear and crisp printing result to satisfy your every need for an amazing range of colors experience.

When do the TN450 and DR420 need to be replaced?

If the printer prompts “replace toner” or the prints are gradually fading, you need to prepare a new TN450 toner cartridge. If blank spaces or streaks in printing, or the printer prompts “drum replace”, the DR420 drum unit needs to be replaced.

Hope these information can help you better understand TN420 / TN450 toner cartridges and DR730 drum unit. If you have any questions about them, please contact us by email: support_ team@v4ink.com.

CE505A

CE505A and CE505X, as our v4ink best collection, still perplex green hands for their difference. This article is about to ease your concerns when selecting the best working partner.


Capacity

To calculate the page yield, we will ensure each A4 printout will be covered 5% contents. The test referred to the industrial standard.

How do you define “A” and “X”?

A means standard toner level, whereas X denotes higher toner level. That is to say, CE505X will produce more pages than CE505A. This characteristic is applicable for other HP toner models with the same letter. Based on the circumspect test standard (5% coverage per A4 printout), v4ink CE505A toner is able to yield out 2700 pages, and CE505X can run 6900 pages. The specific page amount and the toner consumption will vary for the contents that users intend to print.

What is the difference between TN420 and TN450?

Page Yield

The only difference between TN420 and TN450 is the number of pages printed. Brother TN-420 is a standard-yield toner cartridge and prints approximately 1,200 pages, while TN-450 is a high-yield toner cartridge and can print up to 2600 pages. Because TN420 toner contains less powder, TN420 toner cartridge is less expensive than TN450 cartridge.

 Page YieldOriginal Price
Brother TN420 toner1200 pages$39.98
Brother TN450 toner2600 pages$58.49

Cost Per Page

From the Brother Price, TN420 cartridge is cheaper than TN450 cartridge. But their printable pages are not the same, so not the most accurate price comparison. Therefore, we calculate their cost per page uniformly and find which one is cheaper.

Brother TN420 standard yield toner cartridge:

$39.98/1200 pages = 3.3 cents

Brother TN450 high yield toner cartridge:

$58.49/2600 pages = 2.2 cents

From the results, the cost per page of TN450 high-yield cartridge is lower than TN420 standard-yield cartridge. If you print infrequently, you can save money with TN420 toner, but if you print frequently, we recommend TN450 toner as it has a better long term.

Ways to Save More on TN450 Toner Cartridges

If you are looking to save more on printing costs than Brother TN450 cartridges, we strongly recommend purchasing the v4ink TN450 Compatible High Yield Black Toner Cartridge.

How much does it cost to use the Canon TS6420 printer?

How much does it cost to use the Canon TS6420 printer?

How much does it cost to use a printer? How many people have calculated this expenditure? Today, let’s take Canon TS6420 as an example to calculate our printing cost!

Printer price

As we know, the cost of a printer first comes from the printer itself. On Canon.com, the retail price of Canon PIXMA TS6420 Black / White Printer is $139.99. This is quite cheap for inkjet printers. Most printer manufacturers don’t mind selling you printers at a cheap price because they know that you need to buy ink cartridge in the future, and that’s where they make a lot of money. Generally, the cheaper the printer, the higher the price of ink cartridges.

Maybe a single ink cartridge won’t make you feel how expensive it is, but the supplier will specially manufacture some low-yield ink cartridges, which means that you need to replace the ink cartridge more frequently. In the long run, this will be a huge expense.

Ink cartridge cost

The next, let’s talk about the ink cartridge cost in detail. The printing cost of an ink cartridge mainly depends on the page yield of the cartridges. The page yield of an ink cartridge determines its service life. The higher the page yield, the lower the replacement frequency and the longer the service life. On the contrary, if the page yield of an ink cartridge is low, it must be replaced more frequently.

  • What is the standard of page yield?

The page yield of different models of ink cartridges is also different. How is the page yield calculated? Does it have a standard? Yes, no matter what cartridge your printer uses, they all follow the same print volume standard, which is the international organization standard (ISO). ISO is an independent international organization responsible for formulating industry standards for products. The ISO page print volume standard for the printing industry was established in the early 2000s as a way for consumers to reliably measure and compare the print volume of printer manufacturers’ cartridges.

The ISO standard has determined that the amount of pages printed by the ink cartridge is based on 5% page coverage.

  • What is that mean of 5% page coverage?

5% page coverage is equivalent to printing out a short email (as shown in the figure below). The page yield of all ink and toner cartridge is based on 5% coverage (A4 / letter). In other words, if the page yield of the ink cartridge is 180 pages list on the product page, it can print about 180 pages of text similar to the following figure. If the content coverage of the page you print is more than 5%, the number of pages printed by the ink cartridge will be reduced accordingly. This is why many people often tell us that the actual print volume of the cartridge does not match the listed page yield.

5% coverage

In addition to the coverage, document type and print quality settings also affect the actual print volume. If you want to print a full page of text or color photos, you will use more ink and the amount printed from the cartridge will be greatly reduced.

What is page yield and cost of the Canon PIXMA TS6420 cartridges?

Canon PIXMA TS6420 Printer uses Canon PG 260 Black ink cartridge and CL 261 Tri-color ink cartridge, High yield Canon PG 260XL Black ink cartridge and CL 261XL Tri-color ink cartridge.

The higher yield option is usually more expensive because it is filled with more ink, but if you print often, it is a better long-term value. As you can see in the tablet below, Canon PG 260 / CL 261 series does not print many pages. If you print a lot, you need to replace it frequently (which means that your printer operation cost will increase rapidly).

Cartridge modelCostPage yieldCost per page
Canon PG 260 Black$17.99180 Pages9.99 Cents
Canon CL 261 Black$26.94180 Pages14.97 Cents
Canon PG 260XL Tri-color$30.99400 Pages7.75 Cents
Canon CL 261XL Tri-color$32.25300 Pages10.75 Cents

According to the above table, you can preliminarily calculate the cost of ink cartridges in a year. If you need to replace a PG 260 black cartridge per month, You need to spend $215.88 a year. If you use a high yield PG 260XL black ink cartridge, on the basis of the same printing amount, each cartridge can last for 2.2 months. That’s to say, you only need 6 cartridges for a year, which spend $185.94 per year. You can save $29.94 per year and print extra 240 pages than using a standard yield ink cartridge.
