The Canon i850 is a fantastic printer. I bought one a few weeks ago and it is fast, quiet and produces great photos (A4 on glossy paper at top resolution in less than 3 misns. It has 4 separate ink cartridges which are cheap to replace. This means that if one colour runs out, you just replace that colour. In a printer with a single colour cartridge, if a colour runs out, you have to replace the whole, which is wasteful.
