[QUOTE=cosmiccomputing;2150163]Good afternoon, I am getting ready to make a purchase and am looking for the major differences. Which one is a better overall printer. Thanks in advance.
First, cost/condition would be a major factor.
I’ve used both and like them equally well.
Maybe I lean a bit more toward iP5000 because of the chipless tanks.
And as weird as it sounds, I like the iP5000 architecture.
It’s the most perfect, simplistic design.
An iP3000 and iP4000 (same frame as iP5000) stacked one on the other make a formidable printing array on this desk.
Yeah, I’m nuts
A bit off-topic, but today I ran the iP4000 under Linux for the first time !!
Puppy Linux 4.1
A tiny OS at only 98MB but extremely capable with superior hardware recognition and loaded with useful utilities. Loads almost entirely in RAM so it is faster than what you’re used to.
Great support and definitely worth a look.
