    Ce message est simplement pour vous dire que j'ai bien reçu la commande XXXXXX et que je suis très satisfait de la rapidité de la livraison et aussi de la qualité de l'encre. C'est la première fois que j'utilise de l'encre "autre que l'originale" et pour le moment je suis très satisfait. Soyez certain que je vais vous référez à mes amis et collègues de travail et c'est certain que je vais commander à nouveau de chez vous. Merci beaucoup.


    Je veux seulement vous dire un gros merci pour la rapidité avec lequel vous avez traité ma demande et aussi pour le petit extra en papier photos,c'est très apprécié.



    I received my order, thank you for your great customer service..



    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Canon Recycled Micro-chipped Cartridges

Thursday, May 03, 2007

Canon Recycled Chipped Cartridges

The Third party markets have up until now not been able to supply any Canon Inkjet Products that contained Canon’s ‘Chip”. Canon introduced approximately 2 years ago cartridges that contained a microchip that would indicate when the cartridge was out of ink and stop the printer from working.

Note: Epson has been doing this for years but compatible products have been readily available.

(Epson though has recently sued over 20 manufacturers for Patent infringement)

Third Party Market Resets Chip

According to a recently announced press release it is now possible to Reset Canon’s chip allowing for manufacturers to refill these cartridge and reset the chip. This in effect allows them to remarket used cartridges with full functionality (The Same as a New Cartridge).

PIXMA and MP Series

The cartridges in question are the PGI-5, CLI-8BK, CLI-8C, CLI-8M and CLI-8Y used in many Canon PIXMA iP and MP series printers.

Product Availability

Forecasts are the have these remanufactured cartridges available by the end of May 2007.

Open Market

As these cartridges are original (remanufactured Cartridges) there is no chance of patent infringement as they are not reproduced, just recycled products.
