19. I would not recommend a Cannon.
Chipped ink cartridges make it hard to go to a cheap, third party source.

Sometimes even full Cannon brand cartridges will register as empty due to the chip not communicating with the printer properly.

And, the most frustrating of all, my printer takes 5 different cartridges (2 black, 3 color). If one of them goes out, you can't print anything.

Do you just want to print a black and white document, but your cyan cartridge is out? It doesn't matter if both black cartridges are brand new. It will not let you print.
