Canon PIXMA IP1600, Dead at 4 months

Posted on March 19, 2006

The mind boggles why printers of this crap quality are even allowed to be produced. Socially, this is really quite exploitive. I mean, most people who would by a cheap printer like this would do so for economic reasons, not because they thought that the printer would do the job, although in my case I knew it was a risk and thought I'ld test out the bottom end of the market. Now this printer has only just finished it's first ink tanks and not it just won't respond. Replacement tanks (Black and Colour) will cost about 80% of the cost of the whole printer! So back to the shop for warrenty on this one, and that hopefully means an upgrade to a real printer.
