I had an Epson when I moved to Australia.. then when I went to get a new printer.. the heads were part of the ink cartridges, which I didn't like. So I switched to Canon. I now have a CAnnon 4500i and LOVE it, however, with the quality of the printing that we now enjoy from Big W, Harvey Norman or K Mart - and even some of the camera shops, it's not worth printing your own pictures. It ends up costing more in ink than the prints would. An 8 x 10 here is about $3.59 and the colour is right on the money! I was very impressed when I got my pages printed. Hope that helps Maggie!
