Canon PG-40 Review

The Canon PG-40 ink cartridge is designed for optimal use in a Canon IP1600 printer model. It has a chemical combination that does not smudge or fade. This product's ink therefore produces clear and neat text on paper. It lasts for about 2 months under regular use in a small business. This time frame is not too beneficial considering the price.


The Canon PG-40 sports an ink level indicator, and thus it makes it easy to see when it is low in ink and needs a replacement. The number of printable pages that can be obtained from this black ink cartridge is sadly way below average. However, there are a number of positive points that also have to be taken into consideration. This ink cartridge is quite easy to install and remove. The same can be said for replacing it. It is non messy and has secure fittings. There are several printer models that are compatible with the Canon PG-40. Two examples include the Canon PIXMA MP190 and MX310 All-In-One Inkjet Printer models.


The ink in this cartridge dries fast whether it is normal or glossy paper. This makes it very useful for photographers. It incorporates Canon’s FINE technology, which allows it to fire ink droplets as small as 3pl, which yields professional quality and detail for printed images & photos. Moreover, its reported low ink duration may be due to a series of compatibility issues or refurbished units. It is estimated by the manufacturer that one Canon PG-40 Ink Cartridge (with 14 ml of liquid ink content) can last for approximately 320 prints – which is not a lot, but definitely better than the 100-pages-tops that have been reported around the web. Also, when the cartridge has almost used up the ink, there is no fuzziness or distortion in print quality. Moreover, it produces great quality document prints to the last drop.


Quick installation and removal makes this printer easy to use, especially during projects when a replacement is needed. Besides, the ink dries up faster than anyone would want. Normal printing work is good for this product, but bulk work is not. One of most valuable features of this product is its compatibility with diverse models. These include: Canon FAX-JX200, iP6000D, iP1800, iP1600, iP1700, MP150, MP160, MP180, MP170, MP460 and MP450. 

  • Pros:
    Easy to install; Canon’s FINE technology provides great results when printing images; No smudges
  • Cons:
    Ink runs out fast; Low cost-benefit
Our score:
3.5 / 5
