I'll have to check the printers' ink levels -- it's usually cheaper to buy these on sale at this price than buy the factory ink cartridges. I've picked up a couple of MX 320s & a mp495 in the past. My wife & son sometimes go a good while between printing, & in my experience the OEM ink doesn't clog nearly as often, plus these cartridges include the print heads, so when/if they do get badly clogged you can just toss them out & stick in a new cartridge. They're easy to refill, but as I said, I've had OEM ink survive inactivity longer.

DO note, testing with 3 PCs, Canon's current crop of printers won't print a true red, e.g. using color calibration test images something like a red tomato turns out orange. I assume Canon alters the colors to make everyday photos look warmer &/or more vibrant, but I returned a $150 printer when I found I couldn't turn that feature(?) off -- don't mind it for everyday stuff like coupons but it makes a photo of my wife, a freckle faced red head look like I took a picture of a ghost.

Thanks OP. My daughter is almost always needing a new printer -- why she is so hard on them I have no idea, but it's never just one brand or one recurring problem -- so cheap replacements are the only way to go.

IMO
for $50 to $60 an all in one using 4 ink tanks is a better way to go in the long run..

There may be some 4 in tank models for under $50
Anyone?

4 ink tank? Those are mostly the Epson printer series ?

Yes, and Brother and some Canon.
Generics on eBay for $3.00 or so each
