    "My Image Garden" ... Ugh. "My Lady Garden"...

    PIXMA range is quite well respected though, although I haven't seen recent comparative reviews (including cost of printing) for a very long time for printers.

    Hmm, I have fond memories of the Pixma (iP5200R) that I had - it just sat there and worked with the minimum of fuss (right up until the network card went funny). Best of all - unlike the HP that replaced it - the old Canon could print directly onto CD/DVD - I really miss that ability.

    Agree with the point about Canon's software suite - it was a mess. To be honest I ended up ignoring most of it.

    Interesting - my folks are after a new all-in-one, having previously owned an iP4500. £79 isn't bad for the top of the range. I guess the inks will be helluh expensive...

    I find their ink lasts much longer than Epson etc. I have two canon printers now and really like them compared to the epsons I used to have.

    Yeah, my Canon inks also last a fair while to be fair, but none of the inks seem cheap today

    Same here - my old iP5200R seemed to last a lot longer than the Photosmart eStation that replaced it.

    £80+ for a set of genuine carts/tanks for the 5200 (4 tanks), but my new HP (five colours) is only costing me about £35.

    How about a printer comparative review on the near future? This, with printers from the very low end budget nature up to prosumer level, that is, which would encompass a rather wide range of users.

    Canon has terrible Linux driver support. In that they don't support them at all. HP / Epson have their own Linux drivers at least.

    Re: News - Canon launches four new PIXMA All-in-one printers

    Canon inks are pricey. The quality is pretty good but the prices are going up which I think is the problem given that they normally have shelf life of a few years.

    Crossy they are pricey if bought individually. Staples have a buy one get 2nd for 25% off the second and Amazon occasionally do good deals on multi-pack purchases. Only relevant if you print a lot. I tend to get mine from here.

    Budget ones would look like an okay purchase (I'm assuming it will be 2 tanks) provided you don't need to have colour in order to print black text.

    I found Epson inks to be even more expensive.

    I agree with you - Staples are a good source for "deal" prices, then again if you've got a printer that uses common carts/tanks you can also get some superb deals from supermarkets. Plus - keep your "empties" and if you're a Staples loyalty card holder (although maybe it's also available to non-card holders) and you'll get £1 off. I made a lot of use of that because my Pixma "tanks" weren't accepted at any of the recyclers I tried.

    I also tried a budget black tank once, and was sorely unimpressed with the quality. At the moment I get a pretty good deal on "proper" carts, so there's no real incentive to try others.
