  • Why the ink cartridges cost for Canon MG 5721 are double of the cost for for MX870?



  • Hello

    Firstly, Canon PIXMA MG5721 and Canon MX 870 are two different printers, they use different cartridges , so it is normal to find the cartridges have different prices .

    The cartridges for Canon PIXMA MG5721 are PG-270XL/Canon CLI-271XL. The color cartridges can print 715 Pages per one and the black cartridge can print 565 Pages

    The cartridges for Canon PIXMA MX870 are Canon PGI-220 & CLI-221 ,
    The page yueld is : 350 Pages for BK, 250 Pages for PBK, 500 pages for each CMY

    So you can know these 2 types of cartridges have different capacity, Canon CLI-271X is almost double of Canon PGI-220 & CLI-221 , that is why the price is double

    Best regards
