So I gather the MX922 has been disco'd (massive sad face)
I've gone through 4 of these printers in the last 3 years. Trust me... I MORE than exceeded all of their duty cycles, lol.
I always kept at least one spare in stock in case of breakdowns. But they are no longer available in any stores or online. If they are, they are 4-6 times the price LOL. I have a part time papercraft business that relies heavily on print and cut for DIY plotters. I use heavy weight papers like 80 - 120 lb cover stock. Even the 120 lb never had a problem feeding with the MX922. That's the most important factor in choosing a new printer.
Basically I'm looking for what's replacing the MX922 now. Looking for these capabilities:
1. Uses the PGI 250 inks
2. Is confirmed to be able to handle heavy weighted paper (at least up to 100 lbs or 270 gsm)
3. 9600 x 2400 resolution
4. Paper feed in the front (no room in my shelf for a top loader)
5. Less than $100
Is the ip7220 what I should be looking at?
