"Canon PIXMA IX4000"

Its one of the fastest printers , I have used to this date, Its so quick in printing photos with nice picture quality and clarity even with text it had no problem with the speed. But i found that black color was not that black as expected by me. The ink consumption is faster than any printer i have used so I don't think its an economical piece. A5 borderless was not been able to print out with the printer and that is the main drawback i have felt for the IX 4000. The IX is not supplied with a USB cable. The installation is time consuming job to be done i had nearly waited for half an hour or so to keep the IX rolling. There is also a bottom plate cleaning process which needs to be done periodically to stop the ink from borderless output.
