The Maxify line are serviceable photo printers on Photo Paper but that is not their intent. They are workhorses for small offices.

I compared a 4x6 print of the same image from my all Pigment ink Maxify MB5120 with that of a Dye-based ink Canon MX860 on standard settings and they were essentially the same quality to my eye at normal viewing distances.

You can compare print speeds by looking up each printers specifications on the Canon web site.
I am sorry. I guess I wasn't clear. I am not actually printing photos on this printer. I meant that now with the paper set to matte the printer prints at photo speeds, not the fast speed that it printed with the plain paper setting.

Yep. The free lunch has strings.

You can try all of the Photo Paper settings to see if one prints faster than the others while maintaining the same print quality.

I see it as a small price to pay to give me the time to do some research as to how I wish to proceed. I really appreciate the suggestion, and all the knowledge I have gained here over the years from all of you.
