I want to agree with you on this one because I do understand that printers need to run some ink during the cleaning process. But this printer in particular uses/wastes A LOT of ink if you don't leave it on and print anything with it at least one a week.People write these reviews for their own reasons and they are mostly untrue, usually because the printer can't do the things they taught it could, and should be taken with a grain of salt, so let’s make it clear about waste ink..
ALL Canon inkjet printers use ink to clean when they have not been left standing unused for some time, and the more ink cartridges they contain the more waste there is, it’s uneconomical to leave a large printer unused indefinitely, if waste ink is an issue for you.. The Cows have to be feed whether you milk them or not..
Printers only use the minimum amount of ink for cleaning which results in never producing a poor print due to a clogged nozzle, that’s never mentioned in any reviews…
P.S. When a printer turns on to initialize that does not mean its wasting ink, and only misinform people think that, there’s more to prepping a printer than most realise..
This post is the reason I'm on here today. I sourced my first Pro 1000 that had 20% ink left across the board minus 5 cartridges that needed to be replaced. I spent $60 each for new Canon cartridges, only for the printer to take at least 10 minutes agitating and then another 10 minutes making sounds like it's about to get ready to print. Only to inform me the other ink cartridges have now run out and the new ones have about 20% missing from them.
The machine wasn't used for maybe a year I was told. And from my research, I've read that the longer you let this printer sit, the longer the agitating and initial cleaning process takes. I'm sure once the other cartridges it wants arrives, the now not so new cartridges will be down another 20% doing whatever it does to get them ready. This printer is for people who have more money to burn than common sense. After working with a handful of Canon and Epson "higher end" printers, I'm sticking with my PRO-100. It seems to be the best overall. That's my opinion though.
