They do say that.

Yes but they and also some other article I read (maybe pcworld) say that
the IP4000/5000 is a step ahead.

The IP8500 is sort of a different animal. Basically they took the
marvelous printer engine from the i9900 and put it in a standard format
printer and then added duplexing and twin paper feeds. It does not have
the pigmented black that is used in text. It is also not quite as fast
as the i9900.

You have to know how to read PCMag. You do not look at every word but
evaluate the comparisons. They also point out many things that act as
alerts for one to investigate.

While it is good for that doing that kind of thing is not a smart way to
go about photography. It is really too expensive. IT is like bringing
a roll of film to the photo lab and getting 36 photos back of which you
can throw 35 in the trash. If one is going to do that (print almost
every photo) a 1 hour photo may be a better choice. albiet no as convenient.

I think you can get better results with the IP4000. If one is heavier
on business document than photos I would maybe recommend the IP5000.
While somewhat leary about 1 pl droplet size and why Canon did not go
that way with all of the models, that sort of has been dispelled with
the release of the IP4200. I understand they continued with the 1pl
droplet size but much slower than the IP5000.

I am not real sure on where the IP5000 and IP4200 stand against each
other but I am sure they will be compared in some future review.

Poloroid was never a cost effective system, nor was it designed for
serious photography. It was designed for snap-shots... uncomposed
spontanious snap-shots. Never the less it was very popular for that
instant satisfaction.

Anything else said while thoughtful has nothing to do with the subject
of the poloroid approach to snapshot photography in the 21st century.

The question is... for those average joes who lose usb cables for their
cameras and don't want to muck around with printing from their pc is
there a printer out there that you would reccomend that supports card
printing. Given you say the ip4000's output is better I would have
thought you would have been hip to the mp760 who's print engine and
driver is identical to that of the ip4000. What would you reccomend.

And hopefully you will read more than just the PCMag review.

All caps doesn't make you more believable. Have you ever found any end
users or other reviews to support your belief in the PCMag claim that
iP4000 was better at Photos and iP5000 better for business documents?
