Anyone reloading Canon 800 ink cartridges ?

Hi

I am to the point that it seems practicle to refill my own Canon S800 ink cartridges. I use alot of Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta. So several questions to those doing so;

1. Are the inks you use archival (as Canon states theirs is)

2. Did you notice any color differences between Canon Inks and Generic brands

3. Did you or do you use both Canon and generic inks in the printer at the same time (lets say canon cymk and generic photo cyan and photo magenta)

4. Who do you get your inks from

5 Any drying problems

I know this is a lot of info to respond to -- so then, to those of you that respond " THANKS !!!!!!!!!!!!" in advance.

1. Are the inks you use archival (as Canon states theirs is)

I can't attest to this at all, and have done no lightfastness tests.

2. Did you notice any color differences between Canon Inks and
Generic brands

No, none whatsoever, in side-by side comparisons

3. Did you or do you use both Canon and generic inks in the printer
at the same time (lets say canon cymk and generic photo cyan and
photo magenta)

Yes, and there seems to be no incompatibilities

4. Who do you get your inks from

WeInk.com, using their U-INK™ 6-Color Cartridge Refill Kit (scroll to the bottom of the page)

5 Any drying problems

None that I can see
