If your really interested in buying a 8300 or 6300.  There is a sale but it ends on the end of March.  The cost is for 8300 is 2449.00 of that includes the 1000 rebate and the 6300 is 2249.00.

But here is the kicker 95 dollars a month and no INTEREST.  FOR IPF8300 44 INCH PRINTER

Or 70 dollars for the IPF6300 and no interest.  

I memorized this but don't have the number here at my house.  I do apologize about not having the rest of the info but will pass it on...If you are interested email me or call my gallery at 9098789214.  California time we open at 10am.

Yeah.... This is the deal to be had, I wish I wasn't such an Epson whore.. :-)  I'd love to buy the Canon, I can't say I ever had bad luck with their printers, just their digital cameras.  I believe in Product Karma and now only buy Nikon Cameras / lenses and Epson printers.  But this is tempting and I'd love to pull the trigger.

Seems hard to imagine that there is only a $200 difference between 24" and 44"  Shocked

If only I could sneak one into the house w/o the wife noticing it   Grin

I agree, my first response to them was, well how many are you willing to sell at that price.  Comment as many as we can sell!!!!!

For 95 dollars a month and no interest.  Just the cost of printing image in ink cost would allow you to throw the others a way.  Thats what I'm doing.

I have both and the Epson are now being scrapped.  To be honest I have not used them since I bought the Canon a well over a year ago..

Mainly because the blacks are fantastic with amazing colors.  I have made over 1000 prints and still have a couple original cartridges in the printer.

I don't think my wife would notice a 6th LF printer Smiley  I could just tell her it has been there all along.

Try putting an attractive doily on top of it. Or a table lamp.   Wink

If I wanted to buy an 8300 here in Australia I would have to pay over $10,000 in US dollars, ($10,225 AUD).  I looked up the price of new cars in Germany yesterday and a Peugeot 308 or a VW Golf are half the price there than we pay here in Oz.   Might be a great place to live but cost are out of control.

Printers in the US are half price from Europe.

On the other hand, out there in OZ you can get a decent sized house for less money than the $1K per square foot which is the minimum here - printer costs more in real estate rent than in actual purchase costs.

Very tempting offer. Wish HP would price match their z3200 or come close to the Canon ipf8300 price here. Looking for another 44" printer, and assumed it would be an HP z3200. May have to give that money to Canon and give the ipf8300 a try!

I did just receive my 8300, what a printer! What pushed me over the edge was the included ink. The 6300 comes with 12 95ml ink tanks, whereas the 8300 comes with 12 330ml tanks. That means that the 8300 comes with roughly 24 extra 130ml ink tanks, @ $73 a tank, that's a little less than $1700 more ink!!!! So essentially, the cost of an 8300 is $1500 less than a 6300.  You really are paying $2300 for 12 330ml ink tanks and getting the ipf8300 for free. I don't understand how they are doing this, but don't miss it!

I was at the Art and Frame show in  Vegas, CanonUSA was there...There's a new model coming out 400 series
so look for 6400, 9400, 8400....May time frame.  Maybe these rebates are to move out the old stuff.

There are new printers coming but, really won't see them till the fall.  May is when I will 60 inch will be out but probably won't see any for sale or delivered until later.  But I hope to see my Beta in by May. 

Yes it does end at the end of month.  If you are the states you can add ink and other essentials to this loan for no interest is what I understand.  I think you can use the 1000 rebate for the first bunch of $95 payments.  Yes you do get 12 330ml cartridges.  I have made a little over 1000 prints and finally changed my last cartridge from the original set.  T

Although I do agree that you are getting more ink, the math doesn't always add up.  Here is how I think of it.  The extra ink is great only if it ends up on paper.  Usually with these printers, they end up dying, and when they do, think of how much ink is still inside of them.  Its not like you can use up all the ink in the lines and in the carts that you put into the printer.  Can you even sell a used cart to someone?  Even if you have a 330ml cart that you just put in and hence have lets say 300ml left, is someone really gonna give you $150 bucks for it?  I've seen people try and sell unopened cart before they had stocked up for a printer they no longer use, and I just don't think they are getting that much for even a brand new cart.

Anyway, so although you are getting $1700 worth of extra ink, when this printer does die, you will also be wasting at least $1000 worth of ink that is in the printer.  The only good way to mitigate this is to pass this printer on used to someone else, but with so many good deals, I don't see how someone would pay good money for a used printer when they are now paying for ink that will never be used in the printer when it dies.

Don't understand your logic. If you like and buy this printer, and the printer does "die" prematurely, the deal with the included ink makes even more sense, not less, because the ink was free. If you bought this printer and it die even before those ink carts ran out, if you did a few hundred prints, the printer more than paid for itself. As long as it lasts long enough to do a few hundred prints, who cares how much ink is left? You didn't pay for it. And if you take care of these printers, HP, Canon, or Epson, they are highly unlikely to "die" before you get through one set of inks.

I love my HP z3100 and was looking to get a z3200, but it's hard for me not to pick up one of these Canon ipf8300's just to play with. On their website it says the deal is good through Mar. 31st.
