Canon PIXMA iP5000
Released July, 2004
The Pros:Doesn't use too much ink even on the high quality prints. Prints look photo-lab quality on glossy photo paper. Contrast and color are very good, everything is rich and deep.
The Cons:Tends to tint towards yellow, can be adjusted but you need to remember to do it. Photos on plain papers look dramatically washed out and plain.
