I am thinking of buying a Canon Pixma 4500 - if anyone already has one of these could he/she please comment on it's performance? Running costs etc. CISS can be used? Reliability. Very important that for it is replacing a 7 year old Brother Laser HL1230 which has given very good, economic service.
I have been using a Pixma IP4500 for over 12 months. There was a problem with faulty cartridge chips although Canon will replace these free of charge. I use a CISS from click here Apart from the hiccup with the cartridges it has given no trouble, gives good quality standard prints and photos at reasonable speed and the duplex and disk printing options can be useful if needed.
