Deal: Refurb Canon Pixma MX860 MX 860 Wireless Printer – $69

It’s not enough to be just a “cheap printer.”  What are the ongoing costs of operation? What about the ink cartridges?

From Techbargians:

Canon MX860 inkjet printer - wireless.

This is a good deal for several reasons – this printer is loaded with features. The print head for this printer is valued at $50.00, and the cartridges that are included are worth at least $50.00 (if purchased separately) – so this printer pays you to take it home.  Good feature set, and reliable operation. We have looked at this printer, and it is *not* a good candidate for a continuous inking system – there is not much clearance, and if you do decide to go CIS, CISS, some serious surgery will be required on this printer.


The warranty on refurbished Canon inkjet printers is only 90 days.  The print head included with this printer (QY6-0073-000) will also work in the Pixma iP3600, PiXMA MP620, and Canon Pixma MX860.
