Great at first, then went downhill fast

  • 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.

A COMPLETE RIP OFF!

R. Carter, Amazon
10 November 2004
  • 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.

Canon S330 Printer

  • 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!! Make sure you do a little research before buying a printer in this price range as I am told that many companies use the same trick. I gave this printer a 1 star because I could not give it none!!!

Canon S330 Color Bubble Jet Printer

Jeffrey S. Alek, Amazon
4 July 2004
  • 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. There is no printer cleaning or deep cleaning that will help the problem.

Broken after one year !?!?

  • Summary: Just wanted to add my experience to the many people who, after having this printer for a year, now have a useless, grey-and-blue paperweight. For the first year, this printer worked great. It was relatively fast, could produce photo-quality prints (but ONLY on Canon photo paper), and the ink was cheap. (And yes, it was an ink-guzzler.) Still, dispite everything -- even the ridiculous noises! -- we were happy.
