In another thread I asked about the support for Canon
printers in Linux. Specifically of the iP4500 printer.
As it turns out the support isnt as wished for, and as the
printer is starting to make 'funny' noises, is getting *a bit
old, AND it seems to consume ink like an alcoholic,
It may be time to replace my iP 4500 and Scanjet G3010 (which
is taking up too much place for the little use it gets anyway)
by one of those All-in-ones...
Now the big questions is which one should I go for....*
Double-sided printing, as silent as possible, with a
reasonable speed and of course good quality
Occasionally printing a photo
Good Linux support
Occasionally scanning (and possibly printing)
Preferably the scanner use LED instead of the
time-consuming older means of lighting the original
Of course low ink cost (
Nice to have: printing on CD and DVD
Canon has a unit which seems to fullfil this list quite
nicely, apart from the Linux support, so that wouldnt be my
Of course there is also the question of availability,
price and resulting quality of prints when using third party
I know that the price difference between original and
third party ink can be a factor of 3...
Any advice regarding this would be greatly appreciated.
For proper Linux support, you should stay with Epson or HP. The ONLY
3rd party ink maker is www.inksupply.com...the ONLY
maker in the US. I have a professional photo printer, so the inks
MUST be VERY accurate and they are the only ones who do that, save
me a bundle of money and the inks don't harm the print heads. As to
what model to get.....sorry....can't help as that's not the type of
printers I use.
