After-market inkjet refill quality - Photography

Hi All: I've got a Canon i850 photo printer and was looking for some insight as to the quality of the after-market inkjet cartridges. Does anyone have any information as to how well they compare with Canon ink as far as durability (i.e., not fading) and matching in color? Thanks in advance. - David...

    the 
    information 

    My experience has been that using other than Canon inks causes frequent head
    clogging. In fact after using a brand that I know longer can recall I had
    to soak the print head in ammonia and water to get rid of the clogs.

    I have a i850 and use ink from http://www.atlascopy.com
    The color as measured from my scanner appears to be real
    close. Durability appears to be more a function of the
    paper rather than the ink. I have done some testing on
    paper and there is quite a difference among different
    types. Color also varies according to the paper.

    Take a look at www.digitalartsupplies.com. I haven't bought from them, but
    they seem to sell only quality inks and papers.

    I used to refill my HP cartridges, until I began to print photos. For the
    volume I do, the saving isn't worth the risk. I bought a third-party
    cartridge from a known company earlier this year in Staples. When I put it
    in my printer, it refused to work. Staples gave me my money back, and the
    clerk remarked that the price had been reduced by 2/3 since I bought mine.
    I guess I wasn't the only unhappy user.
