    Hello:

    Re a Canon color printer for light home home:

    Concerned about cost.

    Is there a "substantial" difference in output print quality between the 3
    color ink
    cartridge models, and those that have 6 ink cartridges ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I personally care more about the "light home use" spec.

    For example, I'll never buy another Lexmark ever again as I found if left
    unused for longer than approx. 1 week the inkjets would clog and I'd
    basically not be able to clean them enough to use again which obviously
    necessitated buying another cartridge. Switched to Epson model(s) and now I
    can leave them unused for months and when I go to print they still do it
    more or less flawlessly.

    More than likely, but the difference is for you to decide.
    Stop by a computer store that sells Canon printers and ask
    to see sample photos that were printed on the two printers
    you are considering. Any decent computer store such as CompUSA
    will accomodate your request.

    Yes, a big difference.

    I bought a Canon S900 a couple of years ago. 6 colors - great pictures.
    And, I go sometimes several months between uses and never a problem with
    drying or clogging.
