Canon Pixma E500 vs MP287 Specs, Price and Ink Refill Comparison

Both printers have almost the same features, both are versatile all in one printer, with quick startUP and utilizing FINE head technology.  Here is the comparison of the two.

a. Number of Nozzles. Canon latest E500 printer is packed with more cartridge nozzles (1792) than the counterpart MP287 (only 1472). It's a new FINE 11 high yield print cartridge that increases speed and support highest image quality.

b. Ink Efficient. Canon E500 is Ink efficient, with high capacity for black ink which is 21 mL and 15mL for colored. Both 9 mL for the counterpart.

c. Price. E500 has low cost for 1 set of Ink cartridges for only P1290 - Black (P595) and Color (P695). MP287 set of ink cartridge cost P1,730.

d. Page Yield. E500 Page Yield for 1 set of cartridge is 1200 pages while MP287 is 464 pages.

e. Cost per Page. Canon E500 cost per page is P0.74 for Black and P1.74 for colored documents. MP287 cost per page is P3.39 - Black and P4.04 - Colored.

f. Initial Cost.  E500 cost P4,495 which is P1000 more expensive than MP287(P3,495). With latest promo costing for only P3,995, I bet this is your best buy.

g. Ink and CISS Refill. E500 model is new in the market and CISS Conversion are still few and very limited. CISS refill starts at P2,700.

So, if your planning to buy for a Canon Pixma printer between E500 and MP287, I'd rather go with the E500 Ink Efficient Printer. It's cheaper in the long run using a genuine ink but if your planning to use refill and CISS conversion, I'd rather go with Canon MP287 due to it's low initial cost.

The choice is yours and it depends on your needs.

Rubbish, Canon says we can not sell under Rs 5800.oo and how do you claim that it is available at Rs.3995.oo and a wrist watch also free,and more over 3 yr warranty,whereas canon is giving one yr warranty. How is it possible,I don't under stand.

Hi Anand, it is in Philippine Peso(PHP). 1 INR = 0.75PHP, So a Canon Pixma E500 is PHP4,495 at regular price.
