Complaint / review text:
Had I known that engineers at GREEDY CANON with a for profit designed this printer I would have NEVER purchased it. I've used this model for just around TWO MONTHS and EVERY ONE of the expensive color cartridges just went dry today...
EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NEVER PRINTED IN COLOR! What a racket GREEDY CANON is running. And if you think you can just print in monochrome, forget about it. GREEDY CANON designed their printers to not work AT ALL unless EVERY ONE OF THE EXPENSIVE COLOR CARTRIDGES has sufficient ink in them.
Once an expensive color cartridge is "empty" the printer will NOT WORK until you put in ANOTHER EXPENSIVE COLOR CARTRIDGE—EVEN IF YOU ARE ONLY NEEDING TO PRINT IN BLACK INK!!! I guess this is GREEDY CANON's way of saying "thanks" to their customers... By scamming them out of their hard-earned money with expensive color cartridges they don't even get to use!!! So if you have LOTS of money to burn on expensive ink cartridges that you don't even get the benefit of using, this (or any other GREEDY CANON printer) is your machine!
No more GREEDY CANON products for me! I thought this was a "good" company, but I am able to admit that I was absolutely WRONG!
