[QUOTE=SLM crew chief;2184271]Would the iP3500 be any good?[/QUOTE]
Yes, iP3500 is (was) probably the best in its *class.
CLI-8 4 tank system, it is.
It’s not as well-built as iP4500 and does not print disks (AFAIK), but it is quite capable for its price-point.
A friend bought one of these at Frys for $14.99 after rebate, list was $79.99 I believe.
Some folks got them for free after rebate from Frys during another promotion.
I guess the intent was to get us to buy more genuine Canon inks for these freebie printers
The tanks are just too easy to refill
Competitor’s printers in this price-point would typically sport inferior tri-color cartridges as opposed to separate Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black. And pigment-based Black to boot (a plus for crisp text).
