Summary: This is a pretty good machine. I've had mine for about 2yrs before purchasing this one(for my mom). I don't do a lot of pictures so I can't really give you the best review as for as that's concerned, but the pictures I have printed from my digital camera were beautiful. It's pretty quick as for as speed, ink usage is about normal. The best thing about the ink is you can use non-canon inks & they work perfectly(I by mine on line right here on eBay).
Summary: I really like this printer and primarily use it for everyday small business use. I like the fact that the ink tanks are individualized and are relatively cheaper than most HP/Lexmark/Epson inks. I love the fact that it can do duplex (double-sided) printing right from the factory. Another added bonus is that the control panel monitors the ink levels for you and gives you an idea of what inks are full/nearing empty.
