    Printers

    Is there such a thing as an inkjet printer that has SEPARATE ink cartriges for each color? It sucks having to buy a whole new cartridge just because one color runs out.

    ive never read anything on it, but the technology is the same for both i think, a different name was probably just a marketing gimmick

    as to Canon...has anyone else noticed that the Canon cartridges seem to dry out really often? (compared to a HP cartridge atleast)

    I think Ink Jet forced ink out through pressure from a small pump like device where bubble jet heats the ink which causes it to expand and bubble hence the pressure needed to force the ink out the jet.

    I do know for a fact there are distinct differences between the two systems.
