Canon Pixma iP4000 or Canon Pixma Photo iP4000 - same specs so what's the difference if any ? And any other comments from owners.

The only difference I can see from this site: click here

is The canon pixma photo ip4000 has pigment based black ink. "High-performance 5-color printing. If you're looking for outstanding quality, high speed and advanced convenience features, the Canon Pixma iP4000 Photo Printer is ideal. Its ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system with four dye-based inks plus a pigment-based black ink produces true-life photos with improved color saturation and contrast along with laser-quality text. Plus, it achieves a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi*, for exceptional detail and photo-realism."

against the standard ip4000 which just says:

"The PIXMA iP4000 Bubble Jet printer creates vibrant and outstanding image quality, thanks to the ContrastPLUS 5-colour individual ink tank system, 2 picolitre FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering)technology and 4800 x 1200 dpi."

This is nonsense - there one and the same item.

The difference in pj123's link is that the expensive one has the 'R' suffix denoting it's capable of Wireless printing.

To reiterate the Canon Pixma iP4000 is the Canon Pixma Photo iP4000 and vice versa.

My friend bought one a couple of months ago and they're exceptional printers - and cheap to run on compatibles.

Thanks to you pj123 and leo49 for your comments and links, very helpful, hoping for an owners recommendation before I dash to my local Computer Shop on Thursday where they are on sale for only £84 !!
