Epson R200 Vs Canon Pixma iP3000
I want to buy a basic photo printer.
R200 and iP3000 seem to have same price. I think R200 has five color and
one black ink tanks whereas iP3000 has three color and one black tanks.
Which one is better for quality of prints and trouble free operations?
Thanks in advance.
> R200 and iP3000 seem to have same price. I think R200 has five color and

I own both.
The r200 has extra light cyan and light magenta
The r300 is the same but has the fancy screen and pictbridge
The ip3000 has the usual black cyan magenta yellow, smaller drop size
The ip4000 has two blacks and the usual inks 2pl
The ip5000 has the same but smaller 1pl ink drop size.
The ip6000 has a larger 2pl but offers the light cyan/magenta inks
I leaned tward the r200 for out of the box print accuracy. It worked
fine for 6 months before it clogged and overflowed with ink. Your
experence could be better, but in the past the epsons clogged easily.
I'm told this one is better. But if you really like the Epson r200,
and you buy OEM ink, it's only typicaly $25 extra to get the printer
with ink than just ink.
For trouble free i'm taking a chance on the Canon. I bought the ip3000
cause the r200 was in the shop, and it was cheeper for the printer than
the ink for the r200. I've not owned it as long so I can't report any
trouble, but it at least has a detachable head and a diaper ...Newest Canons vs. Epsons
I am about to buy a new photo printer. My old Epson Stylus Photo 870 has
been good. Now, for my specifications.
Cost - Under $250
Inks - Must be six ink of better and of latest archival evolution (ex.
Papers - I tend to use high-end paper developed by the actual manufacturer
Basically, I use Photoshop to restore damaged photos. The pictures I sell
should be able to last 20-30 years under glass, and should be as good as
those produced by an automated photo developing machine.
This all said - which model is going to be best between Epson and Canon?

What printer gives the best results?
> What printer gives the best results?
You should at least consider the ip6000, which is priced pretty low, or
the ip8500 which is priced higher. The ip6000 at least has the photo
cyan/magenta tanks where the ip4000 has just the five tanks. While the
ip4000 is a passable photoprinter, the other two models are primarly
This is a tough call... simply because i've used the ip3000, mp760, and
r200 for CD printing.
While i'm not a fan of the r200 model.. I've had many odd issues with
mine.... I gotta say I prefered it over the mp760 (ip4000 all in one
unit) in terms of quality. It's odd because the drop size is larger
yet even with larger drops the r200 manages to do white text on a
colored background at ultra small fonts. And the print looks good on
most mediums from fuji to TDK. Photos are top notch, very high level
of color accuracy.
I switched to the ip3000... in many regards a lesser printer than the
even the ip4000 and definatly the r200. But franky I feel it's a beter
product. It can be serviced if need be, you can replace the diaper if
needed, you can replace the head if needed, and based on my limited
experence of a couple months no... i've NO real issues with the printer
leaking, splashing ink everywhere, and generally being a piece of crap.
But the price of the r200 is equal to the OEM ink when on sale, and the
warranty is a year. If...2 printers: HP 7960xi vs Epson R200
I'm trying to get a mainly 4x6 photo printer (occasional bigger ones)
for my dad. The two choices here are very good priced, but I need some
opinion. Here in Canada, currently the price for R200 is $125 with $25
rebate, versus HP7960 which is $129 (online only), both from Bestbuy.
One question I have is Bestbuy posted the HP as "HP7960XI" but the
spec. just mentioned it is HP7960, which I suspect it is just that.
The thing is that HP7960 appears online at least for US$130, but this
offer is CAN$129!!! I'm puzzled as both printer have similar quality,
the HP has LCD and standalone mode.
How about price per print? Any other opinion? On the price front I'm
very confused on why is the HP so 'cheap'? Any 'catch' on this
printer??? HP has LCD and Epson doesn't. CNet customer review for
R200 is 6.7 and HP is 7.4. Review are fair on both.
BTW, I don't need the CD/DVD printing function on the R200, I consider
it because it's one of the cheapest/quality ones today and the rebate.

A friend is looking to replace an Epson 890 printer. The candidates he's
considering are the R800 and 9900. He's aware of the fact that the 9900
supports wider media, but is mainly interested in image quality
comparisons. Has anyone made any?

I am about a new printer but don't know which one to buy canon ip3000
or epson c86. I used to use epson but i have been through 3 epson
printers in the last 5 years. I know printers nowadays don't last long
but i would like it to last more than a 2 years. Are canon using a new
head system compared to old printers which last longer?
What i am looking for in a printer:
1) Long print life therefore most reliable
2) Cheap inks
3) Don't want to replace the head
4) Quality and quick printing
Any suggestion from printer experts or any users of the printers.

Any thoughts or experience on these multifunction printers. I am

and scan negs and slides.
I see Canon has a MP700 and MP730, but I don't see the slide/neg

Which is the best printer? Main points below.
1. Accuracy when printing to CD/DVD (My old Epson 900 was a devil to set up)

2. Economy. Although I can get the ink for about the same cost which
printer performs best.
3. Print quality Photo / CD DVD

printers so far.
1. Epson R300 �84.95
2. Canon I865 �119.99

Anyone know what the difference is between the Epson 4990 Photo and the 4990
Pro, other than the price? Is there any difference in hardware or supplied
accessories, or just the included software? I will be scanning primarily
photos, some of which are very old and need to be cleaned up, but I might
also try scanning my 30+ year old set of slides. I use Photoshop, but I am
not particularly proficient at photo re-touching, so I would like the
scanner to do some of the hard work in terms of improving the images, before
I work on them.

Just wondering if anyone can provide feedback on which 2400 dpi scanner
would perform best. Have been looking at the Canon 5000F and the Epson
Perfection 2400. Both are about the same price- a little under $200 - fits
my budget. The Canon has the FARE enhancement software which sounds pretty
useful, although I am not sure how really good a job it does. I need a
scanner with a little more features and resolution than my puny 600 dpi
Visioneer 4400 USB :-) Also need to scan 35mm slides once in a while -
another question on which scanner can handle such a task adequately.
...Epson vs Canon
Has anyone had experience of both? I notice (after reading a review) that
the 'R' series also has 8 colours, but has lost the PC and PM in favour of
an extra black, red and *blue* - and a 'gloss optimiser". The i9950 (which I
have) still has PC and PM and the addition of red and *green*. Every review
I've read has rated the Canon over the Epson (this was the i990 vs the
R800). Does blue make a difference to green and what does the 'gloss
optimiser' do? After all, if you want gloss you simply use glossy media,
surely?! Or am I missing something?

Make sure you have the current drivers and they are fully installed

It's time to buy a new photo printer and I've always used Epson, my
current model is the Stylus Photo 820.
But I see Canon has quite a few nice photo printers. In the past my
Epson prints were better than my neighbor's Canon prints. Is Epson still
a better photo printer?
In the past, I was told the Canon print cartridge had the print head so
changing the cartridge was like getting a new print head. Is that true?
I ask because I know my Epson doesn't work like that and I've learned
how to use Windex on the little sponge in the printer to clean the

I've been looking into good all-rounders, inkjets, for my home office. In
terms of manufacturers, it seems to come down to a battle between Epson and
Canon. Both have good all-round performers in the middle, middle-low price
bracket. The Epson's seem to have a higher resolution, 5700 as compared to
the Canon's 4800 dpi, but people, in review, seem to like the Canon, I think
it's the I865, or something like that, as compared to Epson's R300? I think
those are the model numbers, although I'm working from memory.

Hi all. I just came across this very favorable review of a new Canon
photo printer with 12 (yes, twelve) ink carts.
The reviewer is very positive on this printer and sees it as a strong
competitor to the Epson 4800. What do you all think? Check out the
cost of cartridges!
Oh, the review didn't speak about a capability to print on CDs. :)

Canon uses (ip4000) dye (photo back) and pigment black.
What black does Epson use?
I am asking because I have some black ink for Epson Stylus Photo 1200 left and I
was think if I could use it to refill the Canon pigment black (3eBK cart).

Perhaps not the best idea. Epsons are micro piezos and canons are
thermal bubblejets. To be honest I don't know what the effect would
be. But canons depend on the ink boiling right where the epsons
basicly squeeze and drip.
Sounds like you are asking for clogs, Epson uses gravity and vibratio
to get the ink on the paper, Canon has to boil it tp produce a bubble
the air expands and ..POP.. the inks splashes on the paper, there'
just gotta be a difference in the ink in my view
Just like oil I say, theres that many types and grade
The Epson 1200 normally used dye inks.
The technologies used in the heads of these printers differ
significantly and even if they were the same type (dye vs pigment) I
would not suggest using the ink in this manner.

I'm nearly ready to buy a new printer and am sick of the Epson ink
bullshit- constant head clogging and cleaning of inks- but like their

printer Canon may have. My questions are- Is the output as good as
Epson; Do they now have archival inks; Can the inks be refilled with
one of the higher end ink systems like the Epsons; Is there a similar
