I used it for PG 210 cartridge for my MX410 cannon printer. I read reviews of people saying it was messy but if you are careful this task should not take more than 10 minutes without a mess. The cartridge holder that came with this did no fit PG 210 but you really don't need it. It's just there to keep it in place and suck some in out once your finished to make sure the ink is not clogged. Instead of sucking the ink out I used a moist paper towel and placed the ink cartridge on that to clean the bottom and make sure the ink ran. I don't recommend you do that but I didn't see no harm in doing so. Just make sure its not wet when you replace it back in your printer. The PG-210 XL only took about 15 ml but that's because it was completely empty. I recommend only using 10-12 ml and saving the rest. I used my own rubber gloves but if your careful and have paper towels handy you shouldn't really make a mess. I didn't cover the hole i used to fill the cartridge and no ink has spilled in my...
Amazon's customer service responded in an exceptional way! When I opened the package I noticed right away some of the yellow ink had leaked. It was not a major reason for concern and originally I thought that I might just keep the product. After looking at the instructions however I realized that enough ink had leaked out to make up for perhaps a half refill. So of course I contacted Amazon immediately. The customer service representative arranged to have another ink refill kit sent to my home via overnight shipping. The next day and UPS driver showed up at my home to collect the defective product and to deliver a brand-new product. Now THAT is customer service! This is the first time buying this product however I have purchased and installed it's "cousin" (black ink refill) and I've had no problem so I have very high expectations for this product. This is the only reason why I am only rating this four stars for now.
The first time I refilled a cartridge (CL-51) color ink for the Canon MP450 printer, it took a while for the printer to recognize the cartridge. Actually, it never did recognize the cartridge, but I got it to start printing after about an hour. It was a little messy for the first refill, then in about a month or so, when the color ink wore out, I tried to refill it again, however, this time it was hard to figure out whether to refill all of the colors or just the red which is the primary color that was not printing. Also, it was a lot messier this time. This refill took just as long for the printer to recognize it, and the color was not as good as the first refill. It also only lasted about a month, then I dumped the entire refill kit as I decided it was not worth the trouble.
