iPF5000 - Second Report of Early Printhead Failure
« on: August 23, 2007, 02:44:44 pm »

Posted on Wiki News section today:

"A poster to the discussion section reported failure of a printhead after approximately 7 months of use and 560 square feet printed. To their credit, Canon honored their verbal one year warranty on the PF-01 printheads and is sending out a replacement printhead. Amazingly, this is only the second report of early printhead failure the Wiki has received on the iPF5000 printers. This speaks to the reliability of these printheads in use, but also serves as a caution that substantial outlays ($500-550 each street price) may be needed if printheads fail prematurely outside the one year warranty period. We probably won't know for another 6-12 months how frequently printheads will fail outside the warranty period after only moderate use. However, the data so far is very encouraging that this will be a low frequency problem."
