I’ve read and re-read the Nifty Stuff forum thread: fun with Canon: pixma ip4600 vs pixma ip4500, and I really do want the iP4500. The problem is, I don’t think I’ll be able to find one anymore…
Since this will be my first (yay!) direct to disc inkjet printer and if I could never find an iP4500, would it be a total loss if I get the iP4600? (It’s numbered differently - iP4680 - in my country.) Would it be better if I got an Epson instead? Looking through CDan’s Printer comparison: Epson vs Canon thread, I’m really sold on getting a Canon-branded printer. Will I regret getting an iP4600 if I also plan on using compatible inks and need to print discs as fast as possible with a mid-range printer?
I’ve also read that the MP610 has a similar print engine as the iP4500 - so does this mean the MP630 (MP638 in my country btw ;)) is the iP4600’s AIO counterpart?
I’m purchasing an iP4500/MP610 or iP4600/MP630 within the next week or two so any personal experiences or insights will definitely help in my decision. Much thanks!
