Previously I used to pay about $4+FS+no tax for a set of 5 inks, but more recently paid $2.25+California tax+FS (select More Buying Choices). I think this is the lowest price anywhere:
- 5/set (one of each color) at $2.25
- 6/set (one of each color; 6th is *gray* ink) at $2.75
- 10/set (two of each color) at $4.45
- 12/set (four of the large black + two of each color) at $5.45
Of the printers using CLI-226, only three require gray: MG5120, MG5220, MG5320, *MG6120*, *MG6220*, *MG8120*, MG8220, MX882, MX892, iP4820, ix6520.
For comparison see attached CARTRIDGEWAREHOUSE (left) vs Vision Supplies. The latter calls them "Hi-Yield"; as you can tell from the picks CLI-226 has about 40% more ink while PGI-225 (not pictured) has about 15% less ink. Overall you are paying less while getting more ink, and they also shipped faster.
If you have any vendor recommendations please let us know. My printer is hungry.
5/set: $2.25 to $3.25 to $2.25
6/set (gray) $2.25 to $3.25 to $2.25
10/set $4.45 to $6.95 to $5.95
12/set $5.45 to $7.25 to $6.25
