hp over canon,
go here http://216.136.200.122/ASA/Controller?adi_hasScript=1&_AD_195R22=110&adi_scriptSID=E9B75A426D69B84AAD570A647E0EC035&sysid=84&appid=10447&_ad_stoken=cons&que-functions=printing&hp=&jumpid=ex_R602_info/helpmechoose/printer/ep
(same site as above another link that gets you directly to choosing a printer)

consider if you print infrequently buy a printer with a head integrated in the cartridge.
if you print lots, buy a printer with just 'ink' cartridges.

check the duty cycle, buy one with a duty cycle higher by 25% than what you will print in the future.
all printers are replaced so rapidly right now it is hard to get

sorry got cut off,
all printers are replaced so rapidly right now it is hard to get a good review of the printer after it has been in use for a while.
I have had lots of problems with canon printers and the printheads 'fracturing' or spliting and becoming useless. the cost to replace the printhead was close to the cost of a new printer, so after 12 to 13 months of use a lot of canons were out of service and too expensive to repair.
the service i received from canon when i lived in canada was sh*t including having to sign up and give personal details just to download a driver.
they have changed, but my opinion hasn't, I reccomend against buying a canon.

PCWORLD review of the top ten:
http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,137931-page,3-c,multifunctiondevices/article.html

#1: Canon Pixma MP600 (Best Buy)
#2: Canon Pixma MP470
#3: HP Photosmart C5280
#4: Canon Pixma MP960
#5: Canon Pixma MP510
#6: Canon Pixma MP530
#7: HP Officejet Pro L7680
#8: Canon Pixma MP210
#9: HP Photosmart C5180
#10: Epson Stylus Photo RX580

for your choices check the speed of impression quality, it really depends what is most important for you.
of the ones you propose, I would flip a coin because I don't know what it is you would use it for.
