A Great Printer that reveals the Greed of manufacturers

Summary: I bought this printer about 8 years ago, and have replaced the printhead twice now. I am doing so again in spite of the fact that you can buy a new printer for nearly the price of the print head. Why are the printheads so expensive? Simple.
Summary: I have had this printer for a month. While it is billed as a photo-printer, I have found it to be a great all-purpose printer as well. It does a great job on photos as to clarity and color reproduction.
Summary: I bought the IP4000 for general printing and to make covers for my VHS collection that I have converted to DVD. The quality is second to none and in the process I learned how to make it print DVD's also which is the best part.
Summary: This Printer is Great, I found it for around $[...] with rebates (which is a steal). Even at $[...] it's a great deal. I bought this mainly for the option of printing directly on the CD / DVD's.
Summary: I have used this printer for a little over 6 months and have absolutely no complaints. I started out using the Canon inks, but have recently used generic ink tanks, with no change in print quality or printing problems. I use it in an office environment, and it gets used a lot.
Summary: I was stunned after I printed my first photo with this printer. It is literally just as good as prints from a professional developer. My admittedly untrained eye could see no imperfections, no irregularities, no discolorations, nothing to suggest that this wasn't in fact developed by a professional.
Summary: When my laser printer broke, I decided to try an inkjet because there were times when I would have liked to have color printing. Based on research and reviews, I picked the Canon PIXMA iP4000 Photo Printer.
Summary: It is amazing how computer printers have become something we take for granted. Of course they are supposed to work. My new Canon PIXMA does just what it is supposed to do. The inks like all other ink jet printers costs more than I would like and they run out faster than I want.
Summary: The printer is easy to set up and use. I like the fact that I can completely close the printer case between uses(no need of dust cover). I primarily print text, but feel the photo quality is excellent compared to my old HP 692C. A very fast printer as well. I have not yet printed using photo paper.
