    2 questions, original or compatibel? How many milliliters per cartridge?

    Except there are currently only originals available for all the new Canon printers . Had you bought the predecessor, the IP-4000, things would've been cheaper.

    Oh yeah, one of those printers with a special photo-grey cartridge. At least those cartridges have a good capacity.

        Hm, that's never good. Murphy's ink law: The cartridge(s) is always empty when you have to print some very important stuff and all shops are closed.

          Maybe, but A) I don't use substitue inks and B) M&S didn't do the iP4000 and at the time this was my best option.

          And I'm a lifetime Nikon user. You have no idea how difficult it is for me to admit that a Canon is a good buy! But it gives me excellent prints and I am well chuffed with it.

          Oh, and M&S sell the ink and they are open 7 days so never a problem with running out (except the cost!)

                  Even still, for a used Canon IP-4000, the black cartridge provides 3x the printing capacity compared to the HC cartridge for the Lexmark cartridge, and only costs 1/8th*. But you gotta know what's best for you .


                  *based on prices at the store I work at.

                    I have the Canon MP130 (multifunction), I paid I think $99.99 1 year ago, the ink is cheap, I think something like $6.99-8.99 for the black one and 9.99-11.99 for the colour one, but they don't last that much.

                    I used to have a Lexmark Z12, I remember going through a shortage of ink once, no store in the city sold cartridges for that particular model, I spent like 1 month without printing or printing in small quantities, or printing in my dad's office, and then getting the cartridges at $59-69, after that, I moved to a city located close to the american border, so I bought 3 cartridges every time I went to the states.

                      I also bought a Lexmark Z12 printer and it helps me a lot with university projects, and that matters the most. Besides that, the other day, I took the Samsung Xpress M2020W Printer and I love how it works. I like that it is wireless and I can easily print directly from my mobile device to the printer over my wireless network. I was lucky to find it on https://www.mrdepot.ca/products/samsung-SL-M2020W-toner and I adore how it works.
