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 ...Which of the 3 printers is the best? Epson R300 or Photo 900 or Canon i865
These 3 printers are all able of printing directly on CD's and DVD's, and
they are priced approx the same in Denmark where I live. But which one
should I choose?
Thanx in advance
In my book The Canon is the Best, and cheaper to run..with being faster, the
Canon i865 is fantastic for the price...and no clogging heads to worry

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. :)
...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?
Thanks ...Canon iP4000 and Epson C84 Printers
This week, the Los Angeles Times has advertisements from Fry's
Electronics for a couple of interesting printers. Yesterday, it was the
Epson C84, available for slightly _less_ than the cost of replacement
ink cartridges for my current Epson C82 printer (about $70 US after
mail-in rebate, of course). Today, it is a Canon iP4000 printer, which
is said to have a faster print speed rating and to feature "built-in"
two-sided printing, which might mean it is available under OS/2. The
price is about $130 US + tax.

try. In the past, I would open up trusty Epson Printer Utility,
determine what the problem was, and fix it. Well, I was able to find my

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...More printer issues Canon and Zerox printers

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

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?

First of all, watch out for you life if you say EPSON ip4000...it's CANON
second, yes, in US CDR printing is NOT available...in this case, Epson is
NOT a better choice, but ONLY one...

My beloved Epson 580 only suffers from its speed (well, lack of, I mean).
I wonder if there's a way to "overclock" a printer.
I mean, what makes a difference in speed between two printers, say Epson.
Is it just a different motor ? If so, is it really cheaper to have so many
different motors as speed increases in the range. Is it build-in memory ?
Could the printer be slowed down because its "cheap" build would not bear
greater speed, like processors are (tested to give them their actual

found "Auto Power" under the Maintenance Tab. Both were disabled. I
enabled both and set Power off to 15 minutes. OK? And it doesn't say but
I'm assuming the Auto "Power On" turns the printer on automatically when you
start a print job (like the HP)
