Summary: I used one of these printers for a few years, it has not been my favorite printer, but, it was not my worst either. It has been one of the more rugged printers, and has gone through things that lesser printers would have not been working after.
Summary: I had one of these for several years and it gave me faithfull service until one day one of my son's did something to it and broke it. I loved the print quality and speed of printing as well as the fact that the inktanks are cheap to purchase and even cheaper to refill.
Summary: But over time the quality of the pictures printed seemed to drop. Nice printer while it lasted though. Although compared to the printers of today its slow and has no USB port so you'd be better off without it anyway.
Summary: I bought the BJC 6000 in mid of 1999 ... I am happy I invested so much money on it. It work very well. With the photo ink and top photo paper, I can have close to real prints. All the limitation is the image itself. The money I spent on inks has exceed the [amount] for the printer itself.
Summary: i've had my canon bjc-6000 for three years now. as of today, it's finally crapped out on me. i have tried everything to fix it (performed all the maintenance, cleaning, etc.) and nothing. so, i've opted to buy a canon i850, which i've heard good things about.
Summary: The BJC 6000 really gives nice looking text and does a good job on photos even without the optional photo cartridge. I have produced some really stunning digital photos using their photo cartridge. One nice thing is the separate ink tanks.
Summary: At first everything worked fine, then it stopped feeding paper. I took it to a repair shop and it never worked the same. It was a constant source of frustration. Finally I just beat it to death.
Summary: Spent about 3 hours trying to get it to print the first time, and the company had to send new printer heads. Everything was fine for almost a year. Then it had it's 1st paper jam and wouldn't feed in paper after that. Luckily? it was still under warranty. The first replacement printer did not work.
Summary: After reading the reviews it was evident the people who were complaining didn't read their manual carefully. The dreaded 6 beeps they all mentioned didn't mean to replace the ink. It meant to replace the blue cartridges that hold the ink.
