"This is not the printer for me."2.0 starson by sccues
Pros: Great features and it looks nice
Cons: My main complaint is the Ink cost and consumption rate.
Summary: I like the Canon IP6700D printer, but in my opinion Canon should give the printers away since you will be hooked on buying expensive ink to use it. I primarily print text on my printer and rarely print color photos, but I like having the ability to print color photos if I want to. I noticed the color ink levels were going down when I printed a text page without colors and since I hadn't printed any color photos I couldn't explain why. The next thing I new my printer wouldn't print text because the ink was out in some of the color cartridges and all I can figure is it evaporated because I hadn't used any color ink. This has me totally disgusted with my Canon printer since i'm having to buy expensive ink that I haven't used in order to print regular text pages. I'm looking for another printer now that doesn't use so many ink cartridges and hopefully the ink won't evaporate in it like my Canon has done. I like my printer and I hate to stop using it, but it doesn't make sense to continue buying color ink when i'm not using it and my printer will not work unless there is ink in all 6 cartridges!
The Canon cartridges have computer chips on them which adds to the cost and also prevents you from using some of the lower cost generic ink cartridges. I didn't realize this until after I bought some generic replacement color cartridges to save a few dollars and then I found out that they wouldn't work in the printer because they didn't have the chip that's required for them to work in the printer. The ink is a racket in my opinion and having to pay for a printer so you can start buying expensive ink is expensive.
