Ink Carts Shipped With Printers?
Aug 19, 2010

I just recieved a Canon Pixma iP 4700 printer and haven't even set it up yet (till my old Epson 1280 finally takes its last breath).

I have just been wondering though, does the ink cartridges supplied with new printers such as this one, really have less ink in them than new ones you buy retail? I have always heard this, supposedly so the manufacturers can start screwing you quicker. Is this really the case or is this urban legend?
