Seems very cheap at only $249.99 PP has it for around $383 inc

Some Reviews, but I can't find any Pro reviews but then again its not really a
Pro printer.

Its crap. The cartridges are almost as much as the printer.

My Roger detector just went off. Both unhelpful and wrong.

The ink cartridge would cost around $80, the printer seems to vary between
$250 and $383. Only in Rogerís mind is $80 almost as much as $250.

Obviously the ĎItís Crapí rating is because itís not Rogerís favourite
printer brand, therefore itís crap.

Hardly unusual in either case.

Your Roger detector may have gone off, but I think it selected the
wrong post - the first (aka "Greg Townsend") was his ........
You might have to tweak a few more dials and re-align the antennae
(or whatever it is that you do) to fine tune your device

I was in there today to have a look at one - Paper $23 for 20 sheets (one
6x4 print per sheet) Replacement cartridge $87 - Decided probably cheaper to
take a CD with pics on to a Photo shop and get them done properly - 6"x4"
$1.20 each at Photo Video in Merivale Mall.

Cheers

Can't you tell the Truth or are you Blind..?


They are around $70, a normal price for most colour cartridges.

Well it certainly was a Rogeresque post. But yes it does seem that the
Greg Townsend posts are the actual Roger ones.

Would the real Roger please stand up, please stand up.
