Re: Rear feeding paper tray

I  too am looking for a rear feeding printer. I've had an iP4500 for many years and the print head is giving up. It's one of the best printers I've ever had. Canon are losing their way if they don't introduce a another rear feeder!!!

Re: Rear feeding paper tray

I'm assming Carolyn_B (Message 29) is correct. I have the Epson XP-860 and can confirm that the rear feed is terrible. One sheet at a time and only after the printer says ok and you click ok. Craziness.

 

I miss my MX-892 and have yet to find a replacement that works as it did. (Give me a break, Canon, you had a good thing going.)

 

Canon does appear to have some rear feed only printers in the Pro section, Canon PRO 100 and the like, but that doesn't compare to the handling from the MX-892.

 

I just want to print a hundred nice Christmas cards a year on the same printer I use for everything else. Why not?

So why not use the dedicated bottom card stock feeder on the XP-860? You can load up to, what...20-50 sheets of cardstock in it. Is your card stock too heavy to fully wrap around the feed rollers, as opposed to pulling it down from the top-rear feed? (mildly off-topic) Smiley Wink

Re: Rear feeding paper tray

As you point out, the stock is heavy so it gets a curl "fixed" into the paper when coming from the feeder which is exactly what the rear paper feed solves. (back on topic!)

 

Also, the Expson output quality isn't half what the Canon MX-892 was. **bleep** you Canon! (off topic again)
