Answer:
The 250 and 255 cartridges are used to print text only. The 251 black cartridge is used in photos and graphics. While all of the 251 cartridges use dye-based inks which yield excellent colors, the 250 and 255 cartridges use pigment-based ink for crisper lines in the text.

That's the way that Canon designs the printers that use these cartridges, but many 3rd-party ink suppliers ignore this fact and offer ink cartridges that do not use the proper type of ink. It's especially bad if they use pigment-based ink in their 251 cartridges as this type of ink will clog the print heads or the printers that use them. Ask the seller before buying if they don't provide that information in their listing. see less The 250 and 255 cartridges are used to print text only.

Answer:
The inks are Pigmented (PGI) and Dye-Based Ink (CLI - or "Chromalife"). Pigment inks are generally a solid choice for most people from what I understand.

Answer:
None of the cartridges in this 4-pack are XL. The only XL value pack I find is "Canon CLI-251XL 3PK 3-Ink Value Pack" but this doesn't include black.

Answer:
My Canon is a MG6420. My box of 4 CLI-251's indicate these cartridges are for Canon models MG6420, MG5420, and iP7220.

Answer:
The 250 Cartridge is for your text and is Pigment based ink whereas the 251 black is for your "color" images or anything that needs sharp dark color and is dye based. This is why the 250 is larger because Canon assumes you are going to be printing more text than pictures/color output. Hope this helps!

The PGBK is an additional black cartridge that is required for my Canon MX 922 to operate. It is about 50% wider than the CLI 251 black cartridge and from what I recall the printer draws from the 250 when printing text. My printer will not operate without all five ink cartridges.
