HP8750 versus Canon 9000 Pro
Jun 18, 2007

Both these printers seem to be aimed at the same market, 13by19 inch prints using dye inks rather than pigment inks.

At London Drugs, a chain in Western Canada where I live, the HP is CDN$500 and the Canon is CDN$700.

Does anyone have any experience with both these machines?

I currently have an HP 7960 (8.5 by 11 inches), which I really like, but I have heard that the Canon 9000 Pro gives brilliant colors and is generally better than my present HP. If true, is it CDN$200 better than the HP8750?

Over the years I have owned it I have never, ever had a clog with the HP 7960, even though I print only occasionally, 20 or 30 prints every few months. I gather that this is due to the 7960 having a print-head built into each ink cartridge. I have not been able to discover whether the HP8750 also has a print-head built into each ink cartridge. I presume that the Canon has separate ink cartridges and print-heads.

Any help would be much appreciated.
