Ink tank printers are brilliant at economy, pretty good at quality but not the greatest at speed.
I use them in the office and at home and donít mind the trefoil of speed for low cost per page

Going to IC tomorrow, there is a big range from R1999 to R7999.   Not a fan of all-in-one as I have a good scanner, but maybe I'm old-fashioned.   Hope the salesperson can explain the differences
Even duct tape canít fix stupidÖ but it can muffle the sound

Went to Premium Consumables in Maitland to collect toner for myself

Their prices for Canon ink-tank printers are between R300 and R500 less than Incredible Connection

One I bought for my neighbour for R2000 is the Pixma G3410.   They have a tech there who repairs and services printers and he said this was the best value for money in ink-tank models and is more economical to run than a laser printer

OneDayOnly has a Canon multi-function ink-tank for sale at R2k. Looks like its the PIXMA G2411 - dont know if its any good. I have 2 Epson Inktank MFPís for frobably 5 years now and so far its the best bargain ever.
