I seek guidance from the wiseGrin

Im in the market for a new printer with a budget of 200 and would like an A3 printer if possible.

Ive come up with the Canon Pixma ix6550 A3+ Printer

Does anyone have one? Anyone got any views on the specs of it?

Many Thanks

The inks for this are the same as my A4 printer. Do not believe the number of prints you can get from each cartridge, you would be lucky to get a tenth of the number quoted.
Good quality though.

I bought one and its an absolute bargain for the money....

A bit of juggling with printing through photoshop and the Canon Print Program has yielded excellent results...very sharp indeed and very accurate colours.

The ink tank life is much better than I hoped for and after printing 50 4x6, 15 A4, 20 5x7 and 10xA3 I still have ink in the original cartridges.

Its a goodun in my book with excellent print quality and far better value all round than the pro range with equivalent results.

Its well worth a look if your in the market for an A3+ printerSmile
