Well I bought the Canon i850 today. Haven't had much time to play around with it other than a couple of test prints, but I have no cause to complain (yet?). The B&W printing is definitely not
worse than the old DJ500
, so its progress in any case. I suspect my colour usage will be there (now that its possible).
Have to get to bed now- close to midnight.
Incidentally: 2 more dirty tricks:
- use a bit of colour in B&W prints "to improve the grey shading" (HP, can be disabled in driver)
- "copyright" protection for otherwise useless chip in ink cartridge (Lexmark). See this link
(in German) for a satyrical note on that.
Thanks for your help.
