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: 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: Bought this printer on here used for $18 plus shipping and it works beautifully. I had previously owned a Canon BJC 250 so I have been partial to Canon products for awhile. The cartridges were really cheap when ordered online which is crucial to me because I use this printer to print covers for cd's and the print quality is excellent. The only negative (If you can even call it that) is that it does seem to go thru the ink alittle faster than my old Canon.
Summary: Pros: cheap, prints nicely and fast, Ink is inexpensive for this model Pros: long warm up cycle, kind of annoying. This printer is all about saving money, I bought 10 off brand ink cartradges from ... for $20, and they work great.
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. Both cartridges go in together. And the cartridges are SO much cheaper than HPs. With HPs you have to purchase the whole printer cartridge, module and all. I just love this printer!
Summary: The S330 is a fast, reliable printer with crisp color printing and fast black and white. The color prints are incredible with photos coming out almost (but not quite) crystal clear. (Note: I've noticed that there is a noticable print difference when using regular verses heavy paper when printing lots of color. Use cardstock or photo paper if you want your color print to come out as clear as possible).
Summary: Be advised that Low end printers from Canon can't be repaired, they need to be swapped for new ones (if they are still under warranty). Originally bought the S300. Had tons of problems with that model. After 3 swaps due to malfunctions in printers, Canon finally upgraded me, at no additional cost, to an S330. Happy to say that I now have no complaints to report and that this model works well for me.
Summary: Pros: Quiet mode is just that - quiet. You can specify a time frame for Quiet mode: for instance, all printing done between 10:00pm until 9:00am will be printed in quiet mode. The printer can automatically turn itself on to print, and turn itself off when the print job is done. Print quality is great, and it's fast. The ink cartridges are quite inexpensive (less than [price] each for B&W or color cartridge).
Summary: I just got this printer a few days ago and printed some photos and assignments on it. The photos were colorful and vivid. The quality was great, and it only took a minute to print. However, the blue was a little darker than it was suppose to be. Other than that, you can't even tell that the pictures came from a bubble jet printer. The printer has good speed on black and white pages. One drawback is that the printer is constantly cleaning the print head.
