price of inks???

Not much at all. Going for around £10 delivered per full set of compatibles (4 cartridges) on eBay.

£8-£9 each from printerinks.com

I used to subscribe to the "Which?" magazine and the canon printers used to always have a good reputation as the cheapest printers to run :thumbsup:

This uses the canon 8 series inks, printers that use these inks cannot be praised enough. The ink tanks are *significantly* larger then all but a handful of epson inks. Each ink tank is about 15ml with the extra black being 27ml of ink.

Yes, 27ml!!! I have seen lexmark cartridges with 3.5ml of ink.

The value is extraordinary compared to similar priced printers.

Yes it will!
This canon printer uses the same inks as a canon iP 4500 . The chips can be reset by purchasing a resetter. Then compatable cartridges can be purhcased without worrying about the ink level! :thumbsup:

I've got one. Its bloody brilliant. Had it since last Christmas and my ink ran out a couple of weeks ago. Used it to print a large quantity of A4 High quality photos as well as all my graduate uni work. Just had my cartridges refilled and chips reset for £22 or so locally. Really easy to use as well, and the TFT screen is really handy. Highly recommend it!

A full set of compatibles, with new chips will cost £19 delivered from memorymegastore.com

Canon sell loads of refurb stuff on ebay, all having warranty and brand new inks/heads. I picked up an MP600, which is similar to this, but higher spec and direct to CD/DVD printing for £47 delivered, and that seems about the price they go for.

The Canon original inks that this printer takes are three '8's (Cyan, Magenta & Yellow), each holding 13ml, the black '5' holds 26ml, and should print more than a ream of paper.

For compatibles, try here:
MP520 Compatibles at ink.co.uk Their compatibles are about 40p each without chip or £3 each with chip.

The chip resetter is also available from them:
Chip resetter from ink.co.uk

Can someone tell what a chip is please and why it needs resetting?

The genuine Canon inks have a chip attached to them. The chip tells the printer how much ink is in the cartridge, and that a genuine cartridge is being used. However, it is quite simple to remove the chip and put it onto a compatible. Resetting the cheap tells it that the cart is a new, empty one. If a chip isn't reset, and used on a compatible, the printer will still think the cartridge is empty.
Hope that makes sense.

Sorry, but if you the need to ask that question then compatible ink cartridges are not for you.

I needed to ask the same question, do you think compatible cartridges are for me?
How about someone who asks for directions, do you think travelling is not for them?

Now if that question had been posed by TimAtkins I may have been a bit more interested in giving a considered response.

Look guys I am not being deliberatley difficult. Your analogy does not make any sense.

How does this compare to the Epson Stylus DX8400 All in one printer for £49.97 from Tesco?
#25
does this print onto printable media cdr/dvdr ?
#26
Anyone know if you can scan multiple documents on this printer? By that I mean put in a bunch of papers and it scans them in one go.

Nope, the MP610 does though....

Here are the instructions for cartridge chipping inkrite compatible cartridges. (This place charges a £1.70)
http://www.madwall-inks.co.uk/canon.pdf

Look fiddly the first time but normal after that. Remember ink jets, regardless of the ink, like being used. Print something every day and your print head will last some time. Leave it for a month and it will start to clog up.

I bought this printer in May from Amazon for around £74 and I cannot recommend it high enough. I was happy with my previous Lexmark but it wasnt Vista compatible so after much research i opted for this one and it is in another league from the Lexmark.

The price was reduced by Argos when the new catalogue came out so this is a permanent price now (Not an offer).

With regards to inks, those who want to stick with proper canon cartridges they are available on ebay for about £10-£12 each and in the shops for £12-£15 so not bad at all. I print fairly regularly and mine are still going strong. Also you should note that the colour tanks are seperate so you only have to replace the colour that runs out. This is much better than my old lexmark where you have to a new cartridge no matter which colour ran out.

I done the same and bought a MP600 from the canon shop on Ebay for just under £50. Comes with brand new cartridges, manuals and print head. The CD/DVD printing is definitely worth having.

This is a great printer. I have had this printer for about 6 months now. Bought it for around £74 from amazon.
