We have a a lower end Canon ‘all in one’ (scanner, printer, copier); even though it “supposedly” has the same ink dispersion as higer end Canon printers, I was TOTALLY disappointed by the photo quality it produced (even though I only use it for non-professional photos, I was still really unimpressed with the quality).

So, I would avoid Canon altogether, personally. If you’re comfortable spending 500$ or so I would look into higher end pro-sumer, commercial, or ‘professional’ printers.

i’m a graphic designer and i would have to say canon has some really rich colors! i would chose them any day.

for $500 you can get a printer that prints 13×19.

dont get an epson r1800. it has been the biggest pain for me and i spent $600 on it a couple years ago.

you might want to look at ink usage.

hp catridges comes in black and another set in color so if you run out of yellow in your color set you’re going to have to change the whole cartridge just because one ink is gone.

canon inks are pretty pricy, but come in separate sets.

if you are using for photography purpose, you can plug your camera directly to a canon printer and print.

also look at paper as specific brand paper works well with their designated printer.

ie. epson paper quality prints would look better on an epson printer than using generic paper.same for all the other brands. printers read the paper and know how rich to make the color. you would not believe how different things come out if you don’t use the right brand of paper for your printer!

I have an HP PhotoJet 6800 series and I really love it. It scans, copies and prints and the colors are really nice.  You can get a multi pack of ink cartridges (5 colors and an extra black) and it also comes with 100 sheets of 4×6 paper for $40.  Its also wireless, which was a must for me with my laptop.  It was only about $150 too
