I'm considering buying the above printer but there are mixed reviews from Amazon.
Do any of you guys use (or have used) this printer? If so, what's your verdict?
Some of the reviews complain about "vertical lines at regular intervals". Has this happened to you?

Hi

I have been using one for nearly a year now and am very happy with it.

I haven't had any problems but it does not get heavy usage.

Hope that helps.

Hi James, thanks for your response.
Yes that helps. I don't think mine would get heavy usage either that's why I'm going for the cheapest model.
At the moment I'm paying £5.99 per A3 print and the quality was so bad on my last prints I had to demand a refund.

Thanks again.
Ron

You might be interested to know that Canon cartridges are easy to refill and reset...I do this with the Canon pro9000 mk2 using German OCP bulk inks and I calculate my ink costs are about 10% what I would be paying for Canon OEM carts.

I've been using mine for a while and results are excellent. Only gripe is that B&W is sometimes a little tricky to get right.

I've got one. I bought it after throwing out an Epson in disgust doe to continual print head clogging. I am happy with the results, and it is much faster and quieter than the Epson.
