Comments about Compatible PFI-106BK Black Ink for Canon:
We wanted to see if we could use non OEM Canon inks on our IPF-6400 printer to save printing costs. We found out that the black ink does not dry, even after two days of waiting. Trying to roll up the prints in mailing tubes was a lost cause. Our finger tips were black from the ink coming up.
We tried two types of media, Canon Satin Photo Paper and Canon RC Luster paper, the Luster paper did a better job with drying but still left black ink stains on the fingertips. The Satin paper was like touching an old newspaper, hands covered in black ink.
We didn't want to give up just yet. We flushed the system and re-calibrated for each paper type. In the end we had the same results. I'm sure that the inks are high quality but might not be suitable for any type of gloss material. Putting the OEM Canon ink back into the system and flushing it the next prints came out perfect with no ink staining on the fingertips.
Ultimately we ended up returning the black ink and will continue to use OEM inks. We gave it 2 stars because 4inkjets is a great business that has great customer service and stand behind their warranty. We talked with the customer service rep and they wanted to replace the ink for free but we knew that the ink would behave the same way, so they will issue a full refund once they receive the ink.
Hopefully 4inkjets can get the chemicals correct and fix this issue. We'll be glad to try a new ink mix once they do.
