Third-party Inks

I can't believe this hasn't been asked on here, but a search yielded nothing.

I have a good quality A3 Canon Pixma printer (not their most expensive but it's towards their top-end). Last year I finally got fed up with Canon ink prices and tried third-party. They seem OK but I think there is slight quality difference. Also I didn't want to throw the remaining Canon ink away (printer takes 6 cartridges) so for a while I was running with some of each.

What are the general feelings about third-party inks? Are they really ever as good as OEM? Is it false economy to buy a good printer and service it with cheaper ink? What about the effect of mixing third-party with OEM as described above whilst you transition between makes?

I've stopped printing in such large quantities during lockdown and am considering migrating back to Canon inks.
