Summary: This printer was incredible, especially for the price. It was fast, it was pretty, even made some great funny click noises the reviews said were OK. But the quality diminished over time. Then I changed a blank ink cartridge, and poof. Nothing, no printing at all.
Summary: I am a die hard Canon printer fan! I have had two Canon printers (BJC 4100 and BJC 4400) and this is the best one so far. The title says it all, good, basic, economical printer. The reply to my order was fast, the shipping was fast. The printer arrived complete and in perfect working order.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!!!!! Little over a year passed with reasonable use and the printhead wore out. This is a pathetic printer and I am extremely angrey with Canon about their pricing of printheads. It is a scandal and a rip off!!
Summary: After several years of seldom use, it eventually just stopped printing completely. At first I thought it was the ink, so I replaced all the ink. Then I thought the ink had dried on the nozzle, so I thoroughly cleaned it.
Summary: My experiences with the Canon S330 have been similar to those of other reviewers here. My S330 worked really well for the first 1-1/2 years, and then the print heads began to fail. The print was fuzzy and ugly horizontal lines appeared. Cleaning the print nozzles did't help.
Summary: My printer just gave out after 1 year and one week (past warranty). The black ink will not print despite new cartridge(s), cleaning the nozzles, and every other maintenance procedure. This printer has been fairly reliable in the year.
Summary: This printer is so easy to use. I had a Canon before but after a long time, it finally gave out. I had my son's HP Apollo. I hate HPs because you have to manually change between the cartridges for black or color. Plus, I never could get the color cartrridge to work right. Canon is so simple.
Summary: I was really happy with this printer for the first year (although it got through ink cartridges really quickly) until after just over a year it just stopped working!!! I phoned Canon and they offered to repair it but it would be cheaper to buy another printer.
Summary: I have had mine for almost 2 years, and it has stopped printing black ink. Obviously time for a replacement, grrr. I never was completely happy with the unit. It constantly goes into a lengthy cleaning cycle before it prints.
Summary: I bought two of these printers at the same time. They have both lasted less than year. Pros: The ink is cheap to purchase for this computer. It prints great pictures. Its pretty fast. Cons: In about the time of a year, both printers (around the same time) just stopped printing black ink.
