Knightcrawler , I have checked the prices on this site of both Canon CLI8 and BCI6 original carts against compatables.. The BCI 6 compats you achieve a 75% saving , on the CLI 8 resets you only achieve a 50% saving.

To me that means that the chip reset is commanding a premium of 25%, It is like the chip is now a chargeable element, the reset machine must use a lot of energy and computing power to justify a charge like that.

I wonder if Canon are selling chips to the third party ink remanufacturers..... and they have to make the expense up ?........no I `m being silly.......or am I?

I have said before Canon would do well to enter the refill /rechip market themselves and if they charged really attractive prices they could have the best of both worlds, at the moment I suspect they are only getting a limited slice of the market.

I would rather buy a refill off of Canon (providing the price was the same as third Party ) than anyone else.

I just use refill ink and check the tanks every once in a while.
