Summary: This delivery was made before the expected delivery date which make this as my number 1 point for this review. The service was exceptionally great and upon installing the product it worked as expected delivering great service. I love the inclusion of the two ink cartridges which give me immediate printing opportunities.
Summary: Canon S330 is a good older printer, very user friendly if you are using older Mac versions like 10.5.8 or Windows XP. Unfortunately the one I got, which was a used one, came defective and I had sent it back to the seller for a full refund.
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. After that, it printed for a few weeks, but with obvious lines which could not be resolved through the "head adjustment" process. Eventually, I just threw it away and bought a new laser printer, which I'm very happy with (so far).
Summary: Purchased this item about 1-1/2 years ago....worked great...loved it....BUT now will not print whole documents..starts off good for the first 2-3 lines than goes spotty....Purchased a new print head..worked for one or two printings...than went spotty again...Canon says...need to get a new printer. Sad...
Summary: I have this printer for couple of years and I never had any problem with it, cartridges are cheap, black cost about $7.00. I feel bad for people who had bad experience with it but I would like to say some: It does not matter what kind the printer you buy if it is not set up right it wont get a good printing quality. Example: to print photos it must be set for high quality instead of draft.
Summary: We purchased a new computer almost two years ago and the Canon S330 was packaged with it. We were very happy with it for the first year, then the print quality gradually diminished. In the last two months the quality went from "ok" to unreadable. I am now looking for a new printer - after reading the reviews and finding out that I'm not the only one with this problem, I will be going with a different manufacturer.
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. Alligning the print heads became almost impossible as each setting produced a similar wavy result.
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. Very annoying when you want to quickly print off directions when you are late for an appointment. Extremely loud, and an ink hog (though you can buy cheap non brand name replacement cartridges).
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. Aparently there is a Waste Ink Tank which fills up after a while but Canon will not supply the replacement part required or the re-set sequence number to get it working again!
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. I cleaned the head unit that holds the cartridge. No Go. Suprising, I had a B\W canon for years and years and years, I wasn't expected this.
