    I always buy them now for my Epson R300 - produce quality as good as genuine ones for about £7 for all 6 - bargain.

    They print photo's fine but can't comment yet on the lifespan of them but hey, that's what digital photo frames are for ;)

    If you take a punt at least you will only lose a small amount of cash and if you don't like them then go back to genuines.

    Normal eBay rules apply, of course.

    I have never purchased from ebay, but I don't think purchasing from ebay an ink cartridges can be a good idea. Its better if you go with the official website of that particular printer you have.

    There is no such thing as "the" quality, they will be from different sellers, different manufacturers, different places, different qualities. Soem will be good, some poor.

    I buy mine via Amazon, which come from a variety of different resellers just like eBay, but on Amazon you can read the reviews for the product (eg the ink), whereas on eBay reviews are generally for the seller not the product.

    I always pick the highest rated ones and am very happy with them. And once you find a brand or reseller you like, stick with that.

    I buy my Canon inks from Precision Colors. I do a large amount of proofing for customers and have found them to be one of the closest inks to Canon OEM. Great customer service as well. The do sell on Ebay, but I deal with them directly through their website.

    I know they are not the cheapest, not the most expensive either. But when I am proofing, I need quality inks. I use their inks in my Canon Pro-100 and have never had an issue with the inks. Been using them for close to a year. You can get everything you need for refilling your cartridges from them.

    Quick to ship and as I stated a very good quality ink. Have a look at their site. I have sent many people in that direction.
