    Yes, stupidly practically all printers are not supplied with a 50p USB cable :rolleyes:
    If it's one of Canons latest printers then YES it will have chipped carts and compats. are probably not yet available!!
    You could refill them but need to check that software is available to reset the chips on the carts.

    I have owned HP and Epson printers. I now have the older model Canon 4000. It is the best printer I have owned. Fast and excellent quality. So much so the new Canon prices are so good at O/C I had to stop myself buying a newer model :rolleyes:

    Ive got a Canon Pixma 4000 and I highly reccomend it. Soetimes it takes a while to warm up, but once its printing it really spits them out at a decent rate. It works really well for Photos as well.
