So basically a printer?
It is probably better than my Pixma 8500 which has 8 colours, but then, it is 14 years old.
But then, there hasn't actually been that much improvement in printing technology since then. If I go to Jessops today and ask them to sell me a replacement for it, they would sell me a Pixma 100S, which also has 8 colours, at the same resolution and roughly the same speed. The only improvement seems to be in connectivity options.
