Owned an HP, Epson, Lexmark and Canon, and I have to say I personally prefer Canon's stuff over all the others.
Have a Pixma IP4000 now. The MP500 looks slick. :)

I agree, I have a Canon MP something that prints great photos and scans nicely, the scanner is noisy is my only complaint.

heck.. i love the canon printers.. I got a cheap (<$20 after rebates) Canon iP3000 Pixma and I love it. Fast.. built-in duplex, and outstanding prints (even borderless printing on photos).

We've had HP's and Kodak photo printers for more money that just didn't compare.

Glad to hear some of you have good experience with Canon's printers. I've had two of the companies digital cameras and really enjoyed both, but I've never had a printer.

My previous two printers have been Epson, and both have had problems with nozzles clogging, to the point that I'm doing 4 or 5 head cleanings without much result. That wastes ink (and my money), and it shouldn't happen as often as it does. :mad:

All that to say... I'm looking forward to this Canon! :)

Had exactly that same problem with the Epson C84 that we had too. Then one fine day it stopped printing altogether, even after cleaning out the heads multiple times. Wasted a whole set of new cartridges and decided it wasn't worth it anymore.

I do like my HP printer too. It's been running flawlessly for years and years.

It's really a shame about the Epsons. When they work they work well, but like you, I wasted $30 or so on a black cartridge that only worked for about a week and now is halfway empty due to all the cleaning attempts. Oh well, you live and learn. :)
