Canon MX860 Ink Cartridges & Refill
The Canon PIXMA MX860 is a wireless office all-in-one printer. This inkjet printer has a built-in option for two-sided copying and printing.
Cartridges it uses are:
CLI-221 Black Ink Tank, CLI-221 Cyan Ink Tank, CLI-221 Magenta Ink Tank, CLI-221 Yellow Ink Tank,
You can also get these dye-based inks in a so-called four color-pack.
There's no need to replace all cartridges at the same time, but only the one tank that runs out of ink.
Then there's PGI-220 Black Ink Tank, which is pigment-based and is for quality text and photo printing.
So it all combines a five-color ink system for printing clear professional text and photos.
The black inkjet cartridge / tank CLI221 - OEM - features Canon's new ChromaLife System. It's said that the CLI221 tank which is equipped with fine printhead technology, has results rivaling that of conventional photos on select photo papers. These photos may also last up to 100 years when stored in an archival-quality photo album.
Compatible tanks/cartridges are also available and usually meet the same ISO-9001 original specifications and performance standards as the Canon CLI221 OEM cartridges. These compatible cartridges are often equuipped with a new chip, allowing you to track your correct printer ink levels. In case you've got a compatible tank that has no new chip attached, may cause you to to turn off your ink level gauges.
These ink cartridges can also be used in the Canon printers:
PIXMA MP560, PIXMA MP620, PIXMA MP620B, PIXMA MP640, PIXMA MP640R,
PIXMA MP980, PIXMA MP990, PIXMA MX860, PIXMA MX870, PIXMA iP3600,
PIXMA iP3600 RFB, PIXMA iP4600, PIXMA iP4700.
The Print Resolution for color printing is up to 9600 x 2400 dpi and for black it is: up to 600 x 600 dpi. Canon indicates that resolution may be different depending on printer driver setting and that color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/9600 inch at minimum.
