I'm in the UK and looking to pick up a Pixma Pro 100. The cheapest prices here are around £330 ($503), but it seems there are some great deals to be had on Ebay from the USA. It appears that many people there got the printers as part of some kind of promotion and are flipping them for instant profit. These go for around £200 including delivery and customs charges. The sellers have good feedback.
A while ago I remember talking to a guy who had brought a printer over from the USA, but found none of the ink cartridges bought here worked (something to do with differences in the chip) and was forced to order inks from the USA (not sure what brand printer it was).
So will cartridges bought in the UK work on an American Pixma Pro 100?
