Crazy Canon business model

Summary: A great printer, fatally flawed for me by the cost of servicing and consumables. I have 6 x 8300s, 4 x 8300Ss, 3 x 8000s, 1 x 8100. These printers seem to either work - or are flaky from the very start.
Summary: Contrary to the other posted reviews here, I've owned a Canon ipf 8000 and an 8300. I've had no problems with any internal circuit boards although two print heads were replaced at no charge, even though out of warranty.
Summary: I have had my IPF8300 for 2 1/2 years now. I hardly use it because the expected business I had hoped for did not materialize. I do prints for friends or myself once a month to keep it running along. I always leave it on to do it's daily ink shake.
Summary: I had two of these at my workplace that were good for about 3 years, and then the problems started. Yes, you have to replace print heads especially if the print heads are over 1 million dot count.
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this printer (IPF8300), the major one was that both print heads had to be replaced, one went bad just a month after the 12 month warranty was over and the other about 3 weeks later at a cost of $500.00 ea.
