Sorry I don't decide my IT policy based on this guy.

All JToolman is telling everyone is "if you update the firmware, you'll eliminating the probability of EVER using 3rd party inks". If you don't plan on using 3rd party ink - update whenever Canon (or Epson) posts and update. If on the fence, better not to update if everything is working fine in your printer.

It's unfortunate the printer companies NEVER tell one what the updates are supposed to fix or features it adds, as you say it "blacks out" the screen display like they are purposefully trying to hide the changes from users!\

As an aside, all my printers have "automatic updates" turned off - so I decide when the update occurs.
