I have been using my all time favorite Canon pro 100 printer for years. Dye ink printer making the most glorious prints that jump off the paper at you.
But the 17 dollar per ink cartridge of only 13 ml of ink was hurtful. I accepted that as the cost of the most beautiful prints ever.
Now there seems to be this new trend of bottled ink instead of cartridges. So I tried a Canon G620 printer (called a G650 in the UK).
This is dye ink with Black, Gray, Red, Magenta Cyan and Yellow. But ink is served from a 57 ml bottle for each color. Each bottle costs 15.00.  You do the math!!
Now to quality. I made numerous test prints from the Pro 100 to the G620. Since the G620 has a real RED ink and the pro 100 does not, hard scrutiny shows a truer red with the G620. The rest is identical.
Fantastic!  I have printed over 100 prints since I got it.  Only the black bottle is down a half.The rest are still close to full.
The price is around 299.00 depending what store. I'll make that back in not having to buy 100 dollars worth of ink a month.
The DOWNSIDE    ...  The largest paper is 8.5 inches wide. The 11 x 14s and the 12 x 18s have to run through the Pro 100.
Oh as a bonus, it is a scanner and a copier machine too.
Just thought I'd pass this along to anyone that is interested.
I have currently pasted an 8 x 10 to the sunny window at my house from the G620, and another from the Pro 100 inks. Checking for fading. Let you know later.
