Re: Printer advice

I have an older Canon Pixma ip5200 that replaced an Epson Stylus Photo 895. I only print occasionally and the epson was forever getting blocked even with epson inks. The canon has almost never blocked up. I started only using canon ink but it is pretty expensive for a full set of cartridges (can almost buy a new printer for the cost) so now I've moved to compatibles from Choice. They work fine although the paper seems to be critical. For photos I always use canon paper as my experiments with anything else have proved very unsatisfactory and just wastefull. Another nice thing about the canon is it prints double sided which is useful for general documents on non photo paper.
