Default The Canon i470d vs. the i560...

Hi,

I'm looking at these two right now... they are the same price, and both seem to be fast and efficient photo printers with great quality...

Here's what I see... both have $10 or so for black...
The i560 is $12 per color, and the i470d is only $19 for all three colors in one tank...

The i470d also reads memory cards.

Does anyone have some opinions or insights to share?

Thanks,

Jeremy

I have not tried either of these printers, but I have the I9100. It is really nice to be able to replace a single color tank when it is low, as compared to tossing out a tri-color tank that might be low on one color, but not the others. This drove me nuts with my HP. I would always run low on one color, the other two would be over half full.

For me, I think the seperate color tanks is better in the long run.

I also have the i9100 and have owned a S800. Yes, the color ink is $19 for all three colors, but it is $19 to replace whichever color has run out and throw out perfectly good and usable ink on the other colors. Yes, you could end up spending $48 to replace all of the BCI-6 ink tanks at one time, but not too likely.

I just purchased the i560 and I'm very pleased with the results. Its photo output matches professional quality, to my eyes at least. Speed is decent; it takes about a minute for a 4X6, and two minutes for an 8.5X11 (max. quality).

The ink also seems reasonably priced.
