New Canon iPF 5000 photo printer better than Epson K-3 printers??
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. :)
...Which Printer Should I buy? Canon IP4000, Canon I865, Epson R300
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)
going off center and needed adjusting.
2. Economy. Although I can get the ink for about the same cost which
printer performs best.
3. Print quality Photo / CD DVD
To put it into perspective here are the best prices I have found for the
printers so far.
1. Epson R300 �84.95
2. Canon I865 �119.99
3. Canon IP4000 �99.99
I have the R300 and love it. I do not love the price of the
replacement ink. I have printed about 200 DVD and CD labels with it
and have not had a problem. The software that comes with the printer
has performed well. Check out the options for re-inking of this
machine and you will be pleased with it. I believe that Canon has the
same type of chip on its cartridges. They only allow a certain amount
of ink to be dispensed and then they stop. There is a workaround for
Epson, I don't know about Canon.

Canon carts don't have chips.
If you like R300 why not consider R200? Same thing without frills.
Definitely Epson R300.

I am about to buy a new photo printer. My old Epson Stylus Photo 870 has

...Canon i860 Photo Printer compared to Canon MP360 Printer/Scanner/Copier
I'm trying to decide between a Canon i860 and a Canon MP360. The
MP360 is a printer/scanner/copier while the i860 is a Photo Printer.
I've compared the two units closely and can't see many differences,
except the i850 uses 4 cartridges instead of the usual 2 and is a bit
faster. They both can print borderless photos, can print on photo
paper, and print 4800x1200 dpi. Plus they are about the same price on
newegg.com. Are there any features that the i860 has that the MP360
doesn't? Otherwise why not get the MP360 and get a scanner too. any
info would be appreciated.
Most people BUY a product based on how THEY will use the product. Maybe the
first think you need to do sort out is your own imaging needs.

FYI for anybody buying an Epson Stylus Printer R300 to use in OSX. I
just bought one and I am using it on a G4, 450 MHZ running OS10.2.8. It
prints in OSX and it prints in OS9.2.2 but it will not print in classic
mode. I called Epson help line and was told that some of there drivers
don't print in classic. That if it prints in OSX and 9.X then they
consider it an Apple OS problem. The apple support site says to connect
the driver supplier for similer printing problems. I did not talk
directly to Apple. As long as you can start your computer in OS9 you are

I saw a Canon vs Epson thread but I am looking more at photo printers and

Its time to replace my aging Epson R210.
Many years back, I owned an HP deskjet 400 but decided their quality was at
most third amongst the Top 3 (Epson, Canon, HP).
Canon almost died with crap quality when Epson released their 1440 dpi
printers (canon had standard 360dpi and premium model 600dpi) many years ago
but have since bounced back very strong in recent years.
The Epson R230 would have been a very good replacement but I also wanted

I am beginning to prefer Canon's better printers to Epson: I am looking at a
stack of prints made with both just today. One reservation I have is that
there are not as many profiles for papers as for the Epson because Canon
does not make as many paper types. However the few profiles Canon provides
seem to match up well with Epson and other papers. The Canon printers are
reasonably economical with regard to ink use. However if you make alot of
prints you use alot of ink . . . If you do not need to make larger than 8.5
x 11 prints look at the Canon 960.
Thanks for the feedback.

hp photo printer binoculars,
The photo printers in the market provide great quality photo printing;
they are affordable and easy to use. If you choose the right photo
printer, you can easily print great digital photos and be amazed. If
you do not feel ready to start using a photo printer yet, you can also
find an inkjet printer that produces good quality high resolution
pictures. There are also mobile photo printers if you are planning to
print on the go.
Here are the important points to consider when buying a photo printer:

Currently using the v3.71 driver for the Stylus Colour 800 and I seem

Can anyone suggest a better driver, or more compatible settings. I'm
restricted to v3.71 on this system and don't have access to funds for
software etc. So I need to directly connect this beast to the parallel

I'm doing the same because I already have an Epson 2100 for printing photos.
I think the reason for this strange price difference is because they are
aimed at office use rather than home use. Check the "duty cycle" figures in
the specs. This is the number of pages per month the printer is designed to
handle (a measure of how rugged it is).
>I'm looking for a "non-photo" printer and from what I'm seeing, for the most

Because they are usually business printers and made for speed with
reasonable quality. The HP 1200 is one of the models out there.
There are a few reasons non-photo printers are more costly at original

use, etc, because they will be moving a LOT more paper through them.

I love the i900d, but if you've got that kind of money to spend, look at
the new color lasers. At 1200 dpi, they look awesome. If you still want an
ink jet printer, go with Canon. They are finicky about paper, but the
results are indistinguishable from cellulose photo.
