Falling Out Of Love

Lyle Helvie, Amazon
9 September 2002
  • Summary: I have owned my BJC5100 for just under 2 years. Maybe not even. Now that I have a new PC, I find that it is not supported by the Windows XP drivers. Canon, doesn't support it on these drivers either.

Adequate for less-demanding, simple graphics and text

Amazon
4 January 2001
  • Summary: Canon is not the printer to get if you want high-quality graphics. Adequate for simple color graphics and text, but many other similar-priced products are far ahead in terms of graphics output quality.

A THIRST FOR EXPENSIVE INK

fatbat, Amazon
3 January 2001
  • Summary: I was enticed by the supposed "photo quality" of this printer, which of course looked great in the store. I have had a continual problem with what I see on my monitor, not being what I get out of this printer. Serious color discrepancies.

not the bargain you might think

Amazon
3 January 2001
  • Summary: I needed to purchase a printer capable of accomodating 11x17 media for my architecture coursework and was initially attracted to the canon bjc5100 due to its price. I owned a canon printer previously and was well satisfied with it but this printer has done nothing but let me down.

Decent printer

L. Hedgecock, Amazon
2 January 2001
  • Summary: This printer came with the computer system we purchased awhile back. It definitely outperforms the old HP Deskjet 600C we'd been using, printing better quality photos at a better rate. Cartridges are expensive (aren't they all!) Why only 3 stars for a decent printer?

Sturdy little fellow

Sydney Porter, Amazon
1 January 2001
  • Summary: I have absolutely loved this printer. It carried me through 3 years of school without constantly running to the computer lab to print drafts of papers. It handles a very high volume well. I have also found that by ordering off-brand ink tanks I can save a lot of money.

sooo dissapointed---

meredith, Amazon
1 January 2001
  • Summary: I recently bought this model from my mom who had used it maybe twice. My intention was to use it for papers and occasionally photos, not really caring about the quality, more of durability. However I bought it from her in August and now it is November and kaput!

don't buy it

Jessamyn Cruz, Amazon
31 December 2000
  • Summary: This printer has given me constant problems. For one, it kept telling me that it was not connected when it was. When I print a test page it prints, but when I print from a Word Document or Photoshop it doesn't. It also tells me that it is out of ink when I just replaced it recently.

From Productive Printer to Paperweight

Lyle Helvie, Amazon
31 December 2000
  • Summary: I purchased my BJC 5100 about 2 years ago when I was looking for a large format printer (11x17) at a reasonable price. While the 5100 did meet those criteria, I have since had second thoughts about my purchase.

Great printer for the money

Mike Stratford, Amazon
30 December 2000
  • Summary: I own two of these machines and I have to admit I am a fan of Canon products. I also own their digital camera and copy machine. For the money it is hard to complain about this printer.
