    HP and Canon Printer Tests

    Canon, HP's Xmas Ink-Jet Printer Fleet

    Interesting too is that the cost per page is the same for HP and Canon.

    Compared to last year, the quality levels of today's printers are still very high, but performance has increased. This is due both to the progress made both by Canon with its Pixma iP5200 - which has adopted the possibilities offered by its 8-color Pixma iP8500 model - and by HP, which has changed a long-standing practice by using separate ink cartridges on the Photosmart 8250.

    I dunno about that one, I have been on the Canon Website looking and can't find anything about Printing to CD or DVDs and Haven't seen anything in the specs about it either on any Printer I have pulled up.

    There are patent rights to printing cd's on inkjets in north america. Epson seems to be the only company that is allowed to do it. Problem is, the function is sub par with them. basically, their printers ****.

    So here is canon who makes the same printers for worldwide shipment and they cannot have this feature on their american models. Well, they never took it out. all they did was put a removable cover over the tray inlet and set the printers bios to not print on cd's. Once the cover is removed and the bios unlocked (no computer needed by the way) they can all print on cd's. even some older ones before the pixma's. Its a great way for canon to still sell the same printer and not get in trouble. This is why i so strongly suggest canon, they really are the best value you can get when considering all catagories of printers.

    It seems that there are products that we can't get here in the US that are available in other Countries all the time for some reason.
