My old printer is ready to retire. It is a HP that has given many years of good service and has 6 cartridges. Prior to the HP I had a Epson and I believe it had a black and another cartridge with all the primary colors. I'd like good quality but because of the amount of printing I do I really can't justify spending more than $250.00. I print for myself and friends - nothing for sell - and am wondering: With the newer technology, would the printers with four cartridges give as good of results as the printers with more cartridges?
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. <><
John, check Craig's list in your area for the Canon9000 Mark 11, They can be had for less than 200.00. Canon offered a free printer, if you bought a camera. So most everyone is selling them to get some of $ back to cover the cost of the camera, it's a heck of a printer for the price.
John, before you buy a printer, check the website for the kinds of paper available or recommended for the printer. Many of the consumer models may not be able to print on the great art papers like Velvet Fine Art or Watercolor; produce a nice b&w print; produce pleasing skin tone.
