I have a Canon 9900 and am extremely satisfied. The large format prints are out of this world.

I switched from Epson to a Canon i9100 and love it. It's really fast AND quiet. Wish I could find a continuous ink flow system for it though.

Paris take a look at ExclamPT posting 03/03/05 in the Hardware thread. The Photo R1800 offers formats of up to A4, borderless up to A3-plus format. This is the R800 only wide. Don’t know why people are not commenting on it. Looks like good printer to me. NP

Hi All,

Neil - thanks for the link. That's an impressive piece of hardware. A bit more than my budget canm handle at this time.

Duv - a link to a Continuous Ink Flow System for the Canon i9100

Thanks you all for the advice you have offered, it has been most helpful.

The Fates have smiled upon me. I have been offered a Canon PIXMA ip8500 for a remarkable price and would be a fool to not accept the offer. From all I have read about this and the other Canon related printers in this range I feel I can't' go too wrong.

Oddly the offer came via my sister, who knows about as much about printers and computers as I do about the pain of childbirth The company where she works purchased 1 too many of these printers when the were relocating offices. When she found I was in the market for a good printer she offered to enquire at work what they were going to do with the Canon. "Sell it," she was told.

She has suggested that seeing as though it is my birthday next month she and my brother-in-law would put up half the money towards it rather than the traditional sock, clothes etc. present.

Only a month to wait - I'm counting.

What kinds of papers are you having success with? (In general.)

Tried any canvas or watercolor paper for arty output?

I have noticed that the chipset from is very different from others.

It is able to prevent the clean cycles. When I was using Epson cartridges with R800 printer, it does do the clean job when turning on the printer or when it is idle there for a while. You know what, it is pretty harm for the waste ink pad and pretty ink consuming. My epson cartridge did do less than 10 prints and the ink level dropped down to 0% ... what a nightmare...

On the other hand, using's chipset can avoid this problem and can make waste ink pad last longer.

If I calculate right, in the past, I bought 2 sets of R800 catridges every single month, or even more than 2 sets. that wasted me a lot of money.

With bulk ink system from , my cost for a print is next to nothing....
