Default Anyone know where I can buy the i850 in Canada ???

I have had the Canon i850 on order through a local office supply store in my city for over a month now ! They keep telling me it will be in stock within a week, but each week the deadline gets pushed back another week ! Now they tell me they dont know when they can order one in !

Does anyone know of a place I could order the i850 in Canada ? I dont want to order from the US cause by the time I pay the exchange and duty, it will cost twice as much !

Also, if the i850 is impossible to get in Canada, can someone reccomend a printer with similar print quality, performance and price ?

Thanks for any help !!

Default Answering my own question !

Hi,

If anyone else in Canada is looking to buy an i850 RIGHT NOW, I found an outfit in Ontario that has it:

www.greytech.com

$229.00

1-3 day shipping (Expidited)- $26
1-4 shipping (Standard)- $21

I ordered one today (expidited), so it should hypothetically be here by next Thurs.

I'll post back when I actually get it

Thanks for the tip Wilie !!

I bought one from Staples. Very happy with the printer except the price of Canon Photo Paper Pro...ouch !

I have read that Office Depot Premium Glossy is the next best thing though. It is A LOT cheaper- 25 8.5x11 sheets for $17, so I think I'll try it out !

Thanks again for the tip !!

I've had my i850 for a week now, GREAT PRINTER!!

And I'd have to say Office Depot Premium Glossy is every bit as good as Canon PPP.

Saw a post on another site, they said the OD paper was more fade resistant than the Canon PPP...

Thats really good to hear that the Office Depot paper is as good as Canon Photo Paper Pro !!

I dont have an Office Depot in my city, but I am travelling to a city that has an OD this weekend. I'm gonna pick up some OD paper to compare to the PPP !

Hope it works as good cause the PPP will break the bank !!
