Excerpt: I've only used canon printers so far, I've heard these heads don't clog/go bad as quick as epson. I've had the printer for almost a year now and only print large format canvas(average size is 48x32) and haven't had a problem with this head yet, I print somewhere around 300 sq-ft a month.
Excerpt: The print head on our Canon plotter was needing to be replaced. The old one was giving an error message that the print head needed cleaning (had to press the online button after every plot to continue printing). This new print head from B&H Photo solved that problem! It was very easy to install.
Excerpt: Love my iPF5000. Hate the cost of replacing the printhead. I've now done both - which together cost more than the printer did new. It was a bit of a tough choice to decide to replace, but went ahead and did it - in addition to the cost of the printhead, you go through a lot of ink in the set up.
