Inks cost a fortune on the Canon MP Series. Spend a bit more and get an epson, the amount saved on ink will pay for itself many times over.
#5
I do appreciate the heads up about the related ink costs. I am not au fait with most technology and would not nescessarily be aware of the associated costs of ink.
#6
If you do a lot of printing of photos etc to the point where the cost of regularly replacing ink cartridges is an issue for you, then a sub £40 printer is probably not a wise investment.

However, if you just want to print off the occasional bits and pieces and want the convenience of wireless then paying £30 for a set of both (high capacity) inks once a year or so seems reasonable enough.

And who knows, maybe compatible inks will become available in the not too distant future.

Photo printing on home printers is a farce. The paper is relatively expensive and the ink costs are ruinous. So you end up not using the printer for photos and then for colour as you cannot justify replacing the colour inks so often. So what you end up with is a scanner and black and white printer.

I've had a few of these and have one currently but I'm moving to laser. Lexmark has colour laser with duplex and large cartridges for around £170. Not directly comparable you might say but I beg to differ as you need to look at the total cost and that is where ink jets fall down big time.

am i missing something or does this printer being wireless mean that it doesn't need a usb cable?

You will need to connect to a pc for initial setup.

I don't think so, I've mounted wireless printers before and never connected to pc. But maybe this one needs that.

Photo printing in a domestic enviroment is a bit of loss full stop. When you get prints done online with a 24 hours delivery not worth the hassle and better quality/options/sizes etc..

Ok as quick proof test though

I have the Canon IP4300, which is very good. Would like a Canon wireless printer/scanner but this model doesn't have CD/DVD print capability, which I have used a lot.

Not necessarily true...some have compatibles available ridiculously cheap, for example cartidges for my MP 760 (sadly discontinued) fit other Canon MP models as well, and I can get 2 full sets of 5 cartridges for £5.99, which work fine, decent photo quality as well, and seem to last an eternity. The difference is cost; my printer was £140 several years ago, reduced from over £200, but has still saved me a fortune in the long run over the likes of HP and Lexmark.

I wouldnt touch an Epson with a barge pole. The paper feed on Epsons is rubbish for anything more than 200 gsm. If using anything like 300gsm and you want the paper feed to last longer than a month only Canon rear feed printers will do. Ill be getting this as a backup for my other, the IP 4850, last week the chips were cracked and compatibles are less than £5.

Im pretty sure my dads kodak worked out 7p per print (not taking printer cost into count), which isnt bad for instant in your hand prints.

It does if you want to print from a non-wireless desktop like in an networked office environment for example. And it's free so doesn't really matter. Best of both worlds.

The cheapest way to run canon printers is to refill your cartridges with your own ink.
The “German Durchstich” refill method le, along with very good quality ink is really easy ( see http://www.nifty-stuff.com/the-german-durchstich-refill-method.php for full details).

If the cartridges are chip protected, you might need a chip resetter.
The refill kit (blunt needles and squeezy ink bottles) is available from http://www.octoink.co.uk.
I've been using it over a year on my mp640 with no problems.

Thanks ronmanager. Needed a new printer/copier/scanner so this will do nicely!

What I meant was that the cartridges for my printer also fit some other Canon MP printers, as well as certain other Canon models. Meant to highlight that not all Canon MP printers cost a fortune to run, as stated by another poster, some are much cheaper to run. The MP210 I believe is more of a 'budget' model...having said that, I've found the likes of Stinkyink to be relatively cheap for compatibles, and also highly-rated Ebay sellers...of all the cartridges I've had, only 1 didn't work, which the seller replaced immediately, no questions asked.

I also agree with refilling your own cartridges, great way of keeping running costs low, it was the only way my old Lexmarks didn't bankrupt me, and made them relatively cheap to run. The Jet-Tec ones have been fine for me in the past, and even the Tesco own-brand ones, invaluable when I was at uni and had a LOT of printing to do. The packs generally have a leaflet inside with instructions on refilling almost any cartridge you're likely to come across.

Brother seem to be much easier than most nowadays to buy cheap compatibles for...someone I know recently got one, full set £10 with all colours and black. Seems a nice printer as well, and wireless...was about £80 I believe, but with the low running costs they'll save a fortune in the long run compared to the old ink-thirsty HP.
