I need to replace my worn out Epson R200 (so I am used to the ink consumption). I don't need a lot of the gadgets like LCD screens or card readers, I just want a good photo printer, photo printout quality is my overwhelming concern. Black and White printing was always the one thing that I wish my R200 would have done better, but for >$100, I don't print enough of them to make it a really deciding factor. I wouldn't mind trying out the Canon, but I can't really justify the price increase in my mind unless it will do B&W prints better than the Epson R2** printers. Does anyone have any experience printing or attempting to print with the ip 6700D? Has Epson improved B&W printouts with the new inks and printing engine on the R260? Also I have read that the Canon can over saturate photos and in general in tends to overbronze skin tones..... true? Any comments would be appreciated.

I tested the 260 and liked the prints.

BUT the ink is hard to find, not everyone carries it.



BUY A NEW PRINTER EVERY TIME. Someone else noticed you can find the printer for around $80. This is less then the price of a new set of ink. Of course this doesnt't help if you use photo inks most.

I have always had one problem with Epsons - clogs. I have pets and a dusty house. My Canon printers RARELY clog. The Epsons clog a lot and I would use lots of ink cleaning heads. Took mine back for Canon 6600.

Thanks for the response. I've had my R200 for about two years now and never had a clog. Had an 825 before that and only had 1 or 2 with non OEM ink, so that's really not an issue for me. Did you ever print B&W on either of them and how good did it look? Also, how much better on the ink has your Canon been?
