I have been using a canon ip 6600D printer for general home use and occasional photo printing. It's expensive to operate, so I usually do my printing at Costco or Mpix. It has a broken page feeder. I can still feed paper through the cassette tray, but I am nearly out of ink and don't want to replace the cartridges on a broken machine. I am wondering if I decided to spend more on a printer and do more of my printing at home, can I buy one that is cost effecient to operate? I realize the convenience and control of the output is a big plus, but are there any that are close to the price of ordering prints to operate? What would you recommend? Thanks for advice. I have had experience with cheaper epson printers and found that the ink clogging issue was too frustrating. I've liked this canon printer but found the prints too expensive.
