"Forget Epson, Canon is the buisness!!"

Having previously owned only Epson printers I'd stupidly fallen in the trap of not keeping an eye on the competition. After having had another Epson printer clog up, then empty itself of new ink cartriges whilst trying(and failing) to clean the heads I decided it was time for a change. Enter the IP3000. I read reviews, and still I was unsure if it would be upto Epson standards. Well look no further.

The IP3000 photo prints are fantastic. Either I'm getting old or you just can't see the familiar inkjet dots on close inspection. The prints look as good as photographic prints. Not only that, but you can have them borderless too!! Also (although I've heard this isn't tru on the USA version) we have a CD printing facility. I ordered some printable CD's straight away and hey presto, lovely printed CD's too!!!...all for under £100.

Finally is the fact that all cartridges are seperate so you don't have to replace all your colours when one runs out. Canon also supplies with full tanks off the shelf, unlike epson who only gave me half full tanks. Oh yeah that's right, should (like epson) the print heads become totally defunct, you can simply buy a new print head. marvelous!

I had to give away some cheap HP photo paper which wasn't friendly with the canon ink, but that's nothing compared to the total bargainness of this excellent Printer! Go get yourself one now!
