Well after 6 years I am finally tossing my epson Photo Stylus 1200. I have been looking at reviews and I can not determine which printer I want to replace it with and pair up with my new MacPro. What I hated about the Epson was that it clogged all the time, the print head alignment was off in cold weather and it was an inkoholic! I also hated the fact I could not run the printers utilities through my mac. I really should of ditched this printer years ago. I am hearing good things about the Pixma9000 and the 9500. Any one have experience with these printers and how are they on ink resources? I am looking to spend <$500 and need the 13" wide format. If the Epson R1900 or Sp1400 is better I might be persuaded to stay with epson. Further reading has revealed the introduction of the HP Photosmart Pro B8850 shipping in April. Anyone eyeballing this printer? Any help deciding is always appreciated. Thanks!
