I hate my printer.

Posted 4588 days ago by GipFace

Can someone explain to me how printing high-quality black text on an inkjet printer uses color ink? The printer in question is a Canon Pixma I-Pee-3000.

For reference, see for a picture of the ink cartridge. The printer has separate CMY cartridges at 15cc each, while black uses a slightly larger cartridge and holds 25cc. The left part is the reservoir, while the right part is the pressure sponge. If the reservoir is emptly, you know it’s time to refill.

The day began with the black cartridge just having a nice, clean refill, while the CMY inks were at around 85-90%. After printing an 800 page reference book, the black was at 50%, cyan had a low ink warning (reservoir at 0% so it was using what remained in the sponge), magenta was at 20%, and yellow was at 60%.

Did I mention that the printer is painfully slow when you set it on high and double-sided? It prints at a blistering pace of 40 pages (20 sheets) an hour. That’s right, an hour, and a large chunk of that time is spent sucking the paper back in to print the other side. But wow, is the text razor sharp or what?

In spite of this, I’ll still swear by Canon printers because the ink is ridiculously cheap. I had an Epson once, and the ink in that sucker dried out faster than hot sploodge on skin.

I am one of only about 15k people who can access the holy grail of all message boards, which Encyclopedia Dramatica declares as the colon of the internet. So what exactly is everyone else missing out on? Topics like these:


Share your tips!

The next PotD will be from another site. I promise.

Ehh… my ANOD ReVu section officially gets the axe. I just don’t feel like writing an essay every week (but I did watch AIR 7 and it was okay.) On the other hand, here’s a brand new section where I will post thought-provoking ideas from message boards! It’s the Post of the Day! Whether a post tingles your brain or is flat-out comical, one thing’s for sure: it’s good-natured entertainment all around!

No Name Losers - The Dark Side That Was

As you may know, my fansub group, NNL, retired as of September 28th. The sendoff on the actual site [] is about as nice as you can get from my friend and I, the two people who kept the group afloat for over five years.

However, it wasn’t all fun and games. There were dark moments as well. Take a look at how being an overdriven zealot can lead one person to insanity…


Nice ending.

My memory came in today! Not only that, but Canada Post called and told me I’d be getting a check in the mail for my shipping costs! The memory itself doesn’t overclock as well as my old sticks, but I don’t think I’ll be missing the lost 232MHz too much. (Old sticks powered my Core 2 Duo to 3300MHz, while these sticks only remain stable up to 3068MHz)

Thumbs up to Corsair. I’ll pick them again any day.

Due to work and commitments to NNL (the other one), I have not watched a fansub for leisure in over a year, with the sole exception being overnight fansub marathoning at AnimeNorth. Instead, when I am tired, I plop on my couch, turn to channel 210, and watch some R1 dubs. After a long day of fansubbing and actual Japanese language studying, the last thing I want to do is listen to more Japanese.

ANOD ReVu” will be a running column about what I watch on ANOD
