My Canon i560 is about to run out of original Canon inks very soon

I am tempted to try a compatible ink made by G&G from www.Inktecshop.co.uk.
which I have seen demonstrated on Ideal World TV.

Before I purchase, I would like to hear form anyone who has used this brand
of ink for their comments.
My main concern is if these inks would cause damage the print head.
The inks which the printer uses is BCI-3eBK, BCI-6C, BCI-6M & BCI-6Y

Would appreciate any help
Lawrence

By sticking ot the more reputable brands - somewhat like our JetTec - you
have the usual guarantees.
I've never had complaints with the Canon compatibles. Maybe UK made is a
safe bet.

In a test I read in a computermagazine, Handsome came out even better as
the original Canon cartridges and very cheap.( ? 4,00 for a cartridge)

refilling is not a real option and not worth trying with the price of the
compatibles from Handsome.

*SIGH* the cretins on Ideal World don't demonstrate, they /advertise/.
They're /paid/ by the companies whose products they feature.

Suggest you purchase JetTec from www.kenborne.com - they're cheaper than
InkyLink (sorry, Tony, but it's true). It's a small (around 5 or 6 staff)
Exmouth-based company and I've been dealing with them now for around a year.
They're helpful, friendly, will bend over backwards to accommodate, will
call you when they say they will. Just an example, I had a rush job and
needed six packs of JetTec pre-scored A4/A5 card ASAP. Peter (the MD) called
me and said they only had four packs available (I needed that particular
card because a) it's pre-scored and, therefore, easier to fold and b) it
comes with envelopes). What did Peter do? Not only did he find me some
ordinary card (and gave it to me for nothing) he also threw in some
envelopes (also for nowt). Now *THAT'S* what I call service!

Price comparison:

InkyLink: Set of 2xblack and 1xCMY = £20.26
Kenborne: Set of 1xCMYK - £11.40 (add an extra black and the total is still
only £13.68).

I don't think there's much more to say, really, other than InkyLink doesn't
accept Switch.

I also notice that Tony doesn't appear to know the difference between a
*centi*metre and a *milli*metre! ;o) According to the description

"...internally the ink reservoir has been enlarged to 36cm wide with a
proportionately smaller sponge width. Compared to the 22cm of the OEM
Canon..."

IOW, the carts he sells are far too large to fit in anyone's printer! ;o)
