My 18 month old Epson RX520 Multifunction has bitten the dust by way of the scanner packing in. Any copying or scanning results in a print or on-screen view of what I can only describe as a dark tartan pattern the size of whatever should be on the page. An online chat with Epson's customer help service told me the thing was knackered and would be cheaper to replace than repair. I am usually a loyal brand customer to products I like but quite frankly I have just about had it with Epson this being the third multifunction printer of theirs that I have had that has died shortly after the 1 year warranty expired. I have heard of built-in-obsolescence but hell I swear these things have a built in self destruct clock. Anyway after some research of other brands around £100 mark I am looking very favourably toward the Canon MP600. It seems well regarded in reviews and when purchased from PC World at £109 for another £20 you can get a 3 year instant replacement warranty which given past experience seems one big bargain. Anyone have any recommendations why I should buy this machine ? or any pressing reasons why I shouldn't ?. Thanks in advance.
