Most of us only have 1 printer which, either works and we love it, or doesn't and we hate it.
I can tell you that my last 2 Canons have been superb, but as they are no longer available, that's fairly useless information.
Not much help really.
Someone once told me to get last year's model 'cause it will be discounted and there will be plenty of compatible cartridges available for it. On the other hand Printer quality is coming on in leaps and bounds, so the latest models will be better than their predecessor.
