Time for a new printer

Photo Inkjet - Steve's Digicams Forums -
This section doesn't get very much use does it?

The HP C8180 I have been using has a bad gear that sends a paper jam error and won't print. I've tried cleaning/fixing it and had no success. It's about 7 years old so it's time to replace.

Things I liked about my HP.

The photo quality was excellent until about a year and a half ago. That's when I believe the gear started showing wear and the paper would be very slightly misaligned.

It used 6 ink tanks.

It had a multi-card reader. I still use CF cards so this is a very useful feature. Some printers only offer a SD slot.

It had a built in scanner. Not needed very often but needed.

These are features I would like to keep.

I mostly print 4x6 prints for my kids and family. But I do print larger a couple of times a month, 5x7, 8x10 or 8.5x11. It seems that HP does not make photo printers with 6 ink cartridges any longer.

The only printer I can find that has these same features is the Epson XP-960. The Canon TS 9120 is close but only has a SD slot.

Does anybody have experience these printers? Do you have an opinion about this printer or your experience in selecting your last printer?

At this time I'm not sure what I'm going to buy.
