"Ink prices are extraordinary"2.0 starson by bouldercreekgreg
Pros: Good photo quality
Cons: chips on ink cartridges, high cartridge prices, ink level information (an absolute must know on this printer) is a five step proceedure to get to.
Summary: At first I was in love with this printer. Then I found out about the ink cartridges. They have chips on them. Forced to purchase them from Canon, a set of 6 will cost you $105.29 (more than 2/3 the price of the printer, check the prices below) from Canon if you live in California!
What adds insult to injury is that the chips fail, rendering the printer useless until the offending cartridge is replaced with another expensive cartridge.
Canon states that the use of these chipped cartridges are needed to keep the warranty in force, but I don't believe their ink is THAT special. I believe the chips are there primarily to force the owner to buy ONLY Canon cartridges.
