Canon PIXMA iP1300 Inkjet Printer
I purchased this color printer recently. It includes a color cartridge (41) and you need to buy the black cartridge (40) separately. But it can print with only the color cartridge installed unlike other printers. If you remove the color cartridge and install only a black cartridge, it won't print. With both black and color cartridges installed, you can choose to print using the black cartridge only by going to the printer properties -> Maintenance -> Ink Cartridge Settings and select Black Only. This helps to save the color cartridge for color printing.
