Thinking of Buying a Canon Printer

I love Canon personal computer computer printers. Actually I believe that whenever Canon really obtained their advertising and marketing do something with one another they might be number one. Just one reason behind my concept would be the fact as opposed to Epson, HP and Lexmark, Canon's background has been around the camera business. Within this business films (now memory cards!) and cameras have been person businesses.

For some particular level (I believe forced on to it by rivals) Canon has demonstrated up not to have succumbed for the desire to promote the printer at breakeven, or possibly a decrease, as well as to make all its cash on components. Clearly they nonetheless make the vast majority of their money from components - nonetheless they remember to keep for the formulation - better preliminary cost: less expensive of use (see cost of use within this issue of Incartekspressions. They have also been excellent to its retailers. Epson, as well as to a reduced level Hewlett Packard have released several can differ of inkjet cartridges - often with 6 or 8 products, alarmingly often - it seems with every single printer announcement. This means several item lines (or SKU's as we call them in the trade). I say the trade suffers from "SKU indigestion" (a subject for Incartekspressions 6). Often the only difference is the hard coded identification chip. Canon, on the other hand very seldom changes its range of consumables. Until late 2005, there had not been a significant change on one range (the BCI-3/3e/5/6 - essentially interchangeable since around 1997 and one the lower end since the BCI-21, later 24 was introduced around 1994. There had been improvements to the ink - but not a change which meant stocking numerous lines.

Cost of ownership

To optimise cost of ownership then you should steer clear of being tied to machines where there is no alternative than the printer manufacturer's own brand of cartridge. I believe that the most healthy market is where there is a good supply of quality alternatives. Competition, and fierce competition amongst the alternative branded products has driven the cost of manufacture down - and for the larger sources - at good quality - quality that for most practical purposes means that 'the compatible is as good as the original'. For Canon printers, for example a BCI3e or -6 cartridge costs around £7 (depending on source), whereas a compatible cartridge might cost £1.50. Just run the numbers through Froogle to see!
