    Compatable Ink for Canon Pixma iP4500

    Just got myself a new printer so looking to stock up on some good quality compatable ink cartridges.

    Is their any brands that I should definitely stay away from?

    Cheers

    Have you looked on eBay?

    See item 260281206392
    10 cartridges (2 x PGI 5,2 x CLI 8B,2 x CLI 8C, 2 x CLI 8 M,2 x CLI 8 Y) for £11.99 + £2.99 p&p
    --- Be aware: these requires to retain the original cartridge microchip ---

    You can have them with a chip pre-installed, but it is way more expensive.

    I don't have a IP4500, so I cannot tell you if the 'chip swapping' is easy, but they say so.

    Hope it helps

    chip swapping is quite easy (can be a bit fiddly for hamfisted people like myself)

    I also have the same printer as yourself, it's excellent.

    To be brief -
    Order the compatable cartridges from here ]ink.co.uk
    Take a look at these ones at about 38p - shop.ink.co.uk/sho…fid=
    Order every cartridge required and also purchase this resetter -
    shop.ink.co.uk/sho…fid=

    ink.co.uk is excellent, great service, superb prices and best of all the ink is brilliant quality. :thumbsup:

    you can get a full set of originals from Amazon for £33 :thumbsup:

    Chip swapping depends on the mould and quality of the compatible cartridge (in my opinion). I have seen many fall off and fail to attach to the cartridges. I would always be cautious buying ones that require the original chip.
