    I had a IP4200 for over 10 years. Outstanding prints from day one. It started printing poorly after about 7 years. I determined the print head was bad and ordered one from Hong Kong. I received it in about 10 days. It installed easily and worked perfectly for over 3 years.

    Past October, during an important print job, a puff of smoke came up from the top right of the printer. Not good! It ceased to function after that. I have no idea what went wrong and went shopping for a replacement.

    I replaced it with a MX922. It was on sale for 50% and i got another 10% price match reduction This is a big, bulky and slow machine. It has more features than the IP4200.
    Prints, both photo and text are outstanding. And being wireless, I can print from anywhere.

    I also have a Pro 100. It is a excellent larger scale color printer but does not do duplex printing. It is cumbersom for multi paged text and brochures.

    I lean towards Pixma printers because they are all I have any experience with. Canon has told me they no longer give online support for Pixma printers. Phone support is available.
    For that reason I now hesitate to reccomend the Pixma printer.

    Would you think the TS5020 (or an MB2120) would be a better investment than a pro-100 s? In the long run I mean, compared to equities so to speak..

    thanks!
