Why did we buy this printer

We have had this printer for about 8 months now, and are very happy with it. The cartridge can be refilled, I have done it twice, myself. It is not difficult, anyone can do it.
We have had a Pixma MP145 before that for about 4 years, and are entirely satisfied with it. This also has been refilled many times. We have had an Epson stylus before that and an HP before that.

We use it at home, not very frequently, but when we do, we tend to print several pages at once.

Below are the reasons why we chose pixma. In summary:

We have had this printer for about 8 months now, and are very happy with it. The cartridge can be refilled, I have done it twice, myself. It is not difficult, anyone can do it.
We have had a Pixma MP145 before that for about 4 years, and are entirely satisfied with it. This also has been refilled many times. We have had an Epson stylus before that and an HP before that.

We use it at home, not very frequently, but when we do, we tend to print several pages at once.

Below are the reasons why we chose pixma. In summary:

If you are an infrequent user and want to refill the cartridges, go in with the bubble-jet technology printers; like the Canon printers or the HP printers, otherwise if you use it regularly and typically do not refill the cartridges, go in for the piezoelectric printers, like the Epson or the Brother printers.

Caveat: These are our views, based on personal experience.

*Reasons for buying the PIXMA*

There are two reasons why we chose the PIXMA.
First, every inkjet printer needs to periodically clean itself, regardless of whether it has been used for printing. So you pay for the ink used, regardless of whether you actually print something or not. This is especially true for infrequent users like us, and so the cost of maintaining a printer is typically about Rs.2000/ per year, if we go for original cartridges. A little expensive, especially since all that goes mostly for cleaning the printer head. So, being able to refill the cartridges is a must for such use. Thankfully, nearly all cartridges of all companies can be refilled.

The second reason is to do with the printing technology used: there are two main types, the piezoelectric type and the bubble-jet type. The piezoelectric type, pioneered by Epson, is superior, and is also more rugged. Unfortunately, it is also more expensive, and hence the printer head is fixed to the printer, and not the cartridge. When you replace the cartridge you do not replace the head, only the ink tank is replaced. The piezoelectric technology is actually the better solution if you use the printer continuously AND ALWAYS USE ORIGINAL CARTRIDGES. Then the printer will last for a long time. Photographic studios have this situation. If however, you use it infrequently, and/or get the cartridges refilled, you could get the passages in the head clogged. You would need to take the printer to the service station, where it may or may not be possible to unclog the head completely, and you will get white lines in your printout. It could also happen that some of the piezo cells in the head die out after some time, resulting in a similar situation. There is no solution for these things except to buy a new printer.

The bubble jet technology is actually slightly inferior in terms of the control it gives over printing. But with recent advances, for all practical purposes, there is no difference. The biggest advantage as far as we are concerned, is that the print head is not as durable as the piezo electric head. This sounds wrong, but it is good for us infrequent users because THE HEAD IS ACTUALLY WITH THE CARTRIDGE AND IS REPLACED WITH THE CARTRIDGE. What makes it useful is that the head lasts for about 6-7 refills before you need to replace the cartridge, if you are careful, you can refill it for more number of times.

Hence, if you are infrequent user, it makes much greater sense to go in for a printer with bubble-jet technology, like the HP or the Canon printers. If you are a continuous user, then the Epson with the piezoelctric technology makes more sense.

So why pixma and not an HP? Well, we went for it because we have had a very happy experience with the pixma mp 145 before this!

Good luck!

Best in Category - Surely Value for Money

After a tough decision, between HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One - J410a and Canon Pixma - MP287 printer, taking pains comparing each and every aspect, I finally ordered the Canon.

Quite fast printing speed for this price range. Also, the Manual is very explanatory. With manual in hand, setting up the printer is a child's play. Took me 10-15minutes to set it up.
Before we can use the printer, it prints 3 A-4 sheets to Align the print heads.

Scanning is fairly easy, and the quality is good too, as it has 1200 x 2400 dpi scan resolution.

Coming to its competitor, HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One - J410a, I would recommend Canon Pixma - MP287. Canon seems to be a bit faster, with a little better print and scan quality. Major difference, the ink cartridges included with HP are SMALL sized cartridges printing only about a 100 sheets, whereas Canon has normal size cartridges which can print upto 250 sheets, which is more than double.

The only reason I can imagine anyone going for the HP is its brand name. Most people go for the HP with eyes closed, without any survey. MARK MY WORDS, THERE IS NO ADVANTAGE OF BUYING THE HP OVER CANON. BELIEVE ME GO FOR CANON YOU WON'T REGRET YOUR DECISION.

Also a mention to Flipkart Services. The delivery time was really impressive. As against the promised delivery time of 3-5 business days, the printer was delivered on the 2nd business day itself.

Dont buy it!

Canon printers cartridges cannot be refilled by even an authentic refilling stores. For every 200 pages of print out you may need spend INR.2000 which is confirmed by Canon Helpline.

Please avoid buying this. If you want to buy still, I can gift you one!

Good multifunction printer with Foolish bugs

Pros:
1. Brilliant Scan quality.
2. Very good print results.
3. The softwares bundled with printer make it easy to perform various operations.

Cons:
1. Costlier per page printing.
2. Makes much noise
3. Takes much time for heating inks.
4. THE WORST THING: When any of the cartridges is empty, YOU CANNOT PERFORM SCAN OPERATION. Its very FRUSTATING !!!! What is the relation of empty ink with scan operation!! Canon shitheads must have known this!! This fact has been mentioned in their DISCLAIMER section!

Dont buy this printer if you want to use Scanning function. Else, it is a good printer.

BUY IT..!

I ordered my Canon Pixma-MP287 on 25th November and it was delivered next day though it said delivery period is 4-6 days!!
Just finished installing and tried scanning and printing some docs. Let me tell you, I have been a somewhat proud owner of two HP Deskjets. And, by the initial printing and scanning, this Canon beats them hallow. I hope it continues this way :-D. If anyone out there is looking for a Multifunction Printer, then go ahead and buy this one! It has amazing features with for a real low cost compared to other printers. Well, if you ask me JUST GO FOR CANON PIXMA !!
P.S Flipk...
