Default Generic Ink Cartridges for Canon S900

My wife and I recently purchased the last remaining Canon S900 from our local Best Buy to print pictures (mostly 4 x 6) from our Minolta DiMAGE F100. The printer was a returned item, but looked absolutely perfect. The only problem is that it is terribly low on ink. Someone obviously bought this item to print out some Christmas photos and promptly brought it back.

My question is, should I purchase the Canon refill cartridges, especially the Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta, or should I use another brand? I've heard that some off-brands may damage or clog the print head and I want to prevent that, but I also want to save some money if I can. All purchases will be made online, so I'm already coming out a little better, but I want to make an informed decision. Any help is much appreciated.

I have been using generic ink in Epson printers with great success for years... and Epsons are notably "cranky" about clogged heads. I've had few problems with that and colors seem fine to me. The cost is about a third of that of Epson cartridges. I use www.carrotink.com.

Check www.inkcarts.com. They have a 25% coupon by typing GETMEADEAL in the coupon section at checkout. I have had good success with these folks.
