Summary: In a year I haven't managed to convince it to print a dozen pages for me. I've repeated contacted Canon about it's problems looking for help but they just try to sell me more stuff. With very solid Canon name I'm very diappointed with this.
Summary: ...It is an amazing printer. Photos are superb although I did notice a slight greenish tinge in some photos. Text priting is crisp. The printer is quite fast - I printed a dense, 30 page paper in about 3 minutes. If you find this for [$] don't think twice. It is well worth the money.
Summary: I bought this printer with a Canon digital camera in an inexpensive bundle. I quickly outgrew the camera, so I figured I had to upgrade my printer as well. I tried a few other printers which were highly touted by the imaging gurus, but they didn't do any better than this one. I don't know how much I would have to spend to beat my i455. However, the aftermarket inks that I have tried are really bad, so I stuck with Canon inks and my results were much better.
Summary: Well, if you can still get one, buy it! The printer does a nice job with all printing, including photos, and generic ink is available. These days it's hard to find generic ink for most printers because the ink cartridges contain computer chips.
Summary: I just recently received the Canon i455 printer as a gift. This is my 3rd photo printer to date. I am very pleased with the print quality I get from this printer. It is reasonally fast and best of all the ink cartridges are very inexpensive compared to other printers I've used. I have used both Lexmark & HP printers as well. Both of them printed well also.
Excerpt: This printer is really good, I have to say, expecially for people's average use (printing documents and here and there some photos). Relatively cheap Blac&White cartridges, its compact (actually vertical) design helps to use your desk space at the best, quite fast, fully compatible with canon cameras for direct printing, very good quality in photo printing. Easy to set up and not invasive software (like many Epsons).
Pros: compact design, price of the cartridges, quality and more
Cons: it broke down after years of usage but, which appliance doesn't?
Excerpt: After having bought Epson printers for years, I thought it time to change vendor and see what the competition had to offer. I looked round the usual avenues and ended up looking at the i455 in my local PC world, which was around £70. Comparing it to the other printers on show, I opted for this one and was happy I did. I opened the box and was quite surprised to find it came with both black and colour cartridges in the box! Hurray!
Excerpt: I bought this printer at the start of August to go with my Olympus MJU:410 digital camera, my old Epson 880 wasn't really upto the job of photos, so, i chose this, £60 and got it home. I knew that there was no USB Cable included, but on the other hand, how many printers do come with them?
