Summary: Have owned this model for 4 years; it's basically kick-ass, in terms of print quality, ease of use, and features (scans 35MM negatives, which was a big selling point for me). HOWEVER, the ink does not last very long (colored ink esp.
Summary: I purchased this PIXMA primarily for scanning documents for storage on my Mac and copying old slides I took back in the day. It performs these functions well. The software lets you scan into pdf files and stores them according to date of scan for filing purposes.
Excellent Printer; VERY ANNOYING Messages re: Ink Cartridges
Michael E. Karam, Amazon
29 September 2006
Summary: I have no complaints about the output I receive from this new all-purpose Canon Printer. What I find VERY ANNOYING, however, are the frequent error messages about the various ink cartridges, all of which are Canon brand.
Summary: I would give it five stars but I haven't had it long enough, (one day) and want to leave room for a future ratings/updates. My last printer was an EPSON, and was a most frustrating experience, because of inks $$$$ and clogged printing head.
Summary: This is my first time having a printer that does borderless photos. They come out incredible. I bought a pack of 4x6 sheets, and the prints blow me away. Its fast and quiet too. However, like the last reviewer said, no one makes refills or even replacement cartridges for this printer (yet).
Summary: pros -excellant speed in print and copy -scanning speed of negatives is a little slow, but with excellant results. -sofware package is easy to use for casual user -documents can be saved as pdf files cons -black cover shows dust and scratches -doesn't come with usb cable
Excerpt: We had an epson photo printer before this - it was an r300. However, we found that it was so slow at printing and that the ink levels ran out really quickly. We decided to change our printer, because the epson was too costly.
Pros: CD printing, great quality, fast, copying feature
Excerpt: One of the best Printers I have ever used, I purchased this printer after my Epson Photo Stylus RX425 started to get sick and eventually only copy prints, and after my Lexmark photo printer inks were putting a hole in my pocket.
Pros: Everything you need except fax
Cons: no Fax, ink is quite pricey, its big and heavy
Summary: Estaba buscando una multifunción que jubilara a mi vieja "solo" impresora de inyección de tinta que se había quedado manifiestamente obsoleta. Necesitaba que estuviera mínimamente preparada para escanear negativos y diapositivas con buena resolución para digitalizar una ingente e invasiva colección...
Summary: Ich möchte an dieser Stelle die Aufführungen meiner Vorgänger nicht wiederholen.Somit beschränke ich mich auf drei Punkte, die mir wichtig sind: 1. Alles was vom Gerät gesagt wird stimmt. Es ist super. 2. 4 Sterne nur weil der Canon Support sehr zu wünschen übrig lässt.
