Summary: I bought this printer as a refurb. I got it for considerably less than the listed price. That was three years ago. This printer has been totally reliable. The printing quality for photos is excellent and installing the printer on XP Home was easy and trouble-free.
Summary: I've owned this printer for 3 yrs, I been through 7 printers within the past 5, and nothing can top this one. It is a budget printer, but the Quality it provides is good if your a student or a free lance printer. IF your into photography don't go with this printer.
Summary: AWESOME printer for its size (and price)!! Easy to install, easy cartridge change. Color is great, bright and clear. B&W crisp, hi-contrast, not 'fuzzy' like some small printers. Highly recommend for home/school use.
Summary: The Consumer's Reports review detailed how sparing with ink the S300 is. That same rating gave this printer high marks for print quality, both photo and text. I have run off probably 1000 pages so far, mostly MS Publisher, text and photo combined. I say the ratings are true.
Summary: This was the first Canon printer I've owned and am kicking myself for not buying Canons earlier. The S300 is very reliable and unlike most other printers, after purchase it continues to be economical.
Summary: I got this printer in January while at college. This printer is very convenient and practical for basic reasons. It is quite cheap--I bought mine at just under $100, really easy to set up--I did it myself without confusion, and it prints quickly and nicely.
Summary: I opted for this printer in a systems bundle over the normal Lexmark offering. I already own a S600 but wanted a printer for my kids to use and this was the choice for me. Graphics are good and so is text. Speed is high for this price point.
Summary: Had two different Lexmarks and thought their defects were normal defects/problems common to all printers until I got this wonderful Canon. Have had it about a couple of months and to date it has given me flawless performance--and I print a lot. I happen to like its noise.
