NEW CANON PIXMA MP 230 PRINTER USING PG-510 CL-511 CARTRIDGES
The New Canon Pixma MP 230 printer now on sale in many outlets uses the older style Canon PG-510/512 CL-511/513 ink cartridges. This move has caused confusion with some ink sellers who have and are still offering the latest PG-540 and CL-541 cartridges by mistake.
It is unclear why this new model uses an older style ink cartridge. The reason could be that Canon had a remaining amount of parts that needed to be used up? This would make sense; as why dispose of perfectly usable parts when they can be used as part of a new production process.
As with all Canon cartridges, they can be refilled successfully; albeit without the ink monitor reading full again. The printers do allow you to continue printing but with low ink message. Dedicated Canon Pixma MP 230 refill kits are available from Premium Inks for £11.95 with free UK delivery.
