    Hello everybody,
    I'm looking for a new printer, around 150€ without accesories (inks, refillable cartridges etc.)
    I need - pigment inks, automatic duplex, easy to refill
    I want (not necessary) - automatic scanner, borderless 4x6 photo print capabilities
    They have to be new so no salvaging on old used printer market
    My favourites : Canon Maxify MB2750 (+ Octopus inks, refilling OEM cartridges)

    Looks like it does Auto-Duplex printing but not Auto-Two-Sided Scanning from the Auto-Document Feeder (ADF). If the later is important to you then look at the MB5xxx series.

    Otherwise, our resident Maxify owners love these machines for their dependability, sturdiness and easy to refill qualities.

    Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate it.
    Duplex ADF is not at all important to me. If it does manual DADF it is much better than regular ADF but I can go with regular ADF as none of them (ADF, "manual DADF" or DADF are really that much important for me)
    So as far as I know the MB5000 series only have better per price cartridges (which would be great if I would change my mind but that will not happen, refilling has became sort of family tradition for men. My dad refilled, I refilled, refill and will refill. If not for price then for personal reasons. (I thought about getting Brother 910 tank, it would be only a bit more expensive than MAXIFY with inks from Octopus but dye inks are dealbreaker for me) and dual ADF.
    I would appreciate more the borderless print above anything else I listed in "Want,not need" category but I guess I could sort that out. Altho IDK what settings to use to print for example two 4x6 on A4 and then cut them so in real life they print 4x6.
    Really thanks for your help. I was just unsure if MAXIFY.
    Bless all of you here.
