Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Appears reliable - prints fairly quickly
Bad points:
Sometimes takes a long time to get started. Occasional tendency to blur a picture in a small area - apparently due to drag.

BRIAN, YORK

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
For a printer with only 3 colours it compares very,very favourably with my old 5 ink Canon S9000. In fact I am amazed as it is only a stop gap until I can buy a Pixma Pro 9500 when they arrive in the country.
Bad points:
Thicker paper such as Artists Classic needs a little assistance to push through the printer.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quite fast and quiet (especially on 'high quality' setting)when operating.
Bad points:
Ink cartridges don't seem to be particularly long-lasting.

'Compatible' ie cheap cartridges are NOT available, and I'm told are unlikely to be because of tight design copyright.

Unable to print in black when a single colour has run out. This has caused me annoyance and frustration when I have letters to print.
