I must take issue with your math related to this statement: *********** REPLY SEPARATOR *********** On 7/26/2001 at 10:37 AM David Chien wrote: > >Canon has ink tanks that last about 2x longer than the Epson tanks, and >are individually replaceable, which saves money. Let's assume your statement of "2x longer" is accurate (and I am not so certain of that - that would have to be 440 pages if Epson's quoted 220 pages is accurate under the same coverage model - do you have evidence that supports this statement?) Canon color: five tanks @ $12 each = $60 Epson T008201 color: 2 carts @ $18 = $36 One could buy more than three Epson carts for the same price of the Canon's five color tanks. The belief that being able to change out carts individually saves ink is also misguided. Unless one is printing items overwhelmingly skewed to one color or another, the tanks will deplete at a relatively even rate - after all, nature is very balanced in color. >Nozzles are user replaceable as well. ($86 a pop after how many pages? - my last Canon, a 600e, needed new print heads every 5000 pages) Plus, we must take into consideration the images lost to worn out and burned up print heads we might wait too long to replace.
