Summary: This is basically a very nice printer. It has worked easily with several Windows and Mac computers that have passed through my hands. Print quality is good for both text and photos in spite of it not being a "photo" printer. It's also fairly economical with ink. Paper handling is very good.
Summary: I purchased the i560 under protest, my BJC-2000 finally died and I needed a new printer NOW! I first checked my ink supplier to see which inks were the least expensive, Bingo, 1.09 each for the i560. I read the reviews and was concerned about the noise level. Not to worry!
Summary: Awesome ! Just bought this and printed a few 4x6 borderless pics on Canon PhotoPlus glossy papers that came with it as samples and the result is unbelievable for a $85 printer !! It's fast. And the inks are not at all expensive. ~$11 per tank. Nice !! Very happy with it !
Summary: I picked one up for 89 bucks at sams. It included power cable USB cable and inks. Also a five pack of ink is 45 bucks (2 black 1 magenta 1 yellow and 1 cyan). And if it breaks within one year instant exchange.
Summary: I've had a canon 500 series for a while and its a very solid printer. Not a speedster at all, but the print quality is great, reliability has been perfect, and software support is very solid (e.g., t-shirt transfers which need to be inverted were included via one choice in print setup).
Summary: I'm an HP nut, but I decided to try this printer after the rave reviews. I must admit, I'm impressed - but not enough to get rid of my HPs. The one thing that disappoints me with this printer is its varied text printing quality.
Summary: Just got this printer and I'm printing 4/6 from SONY Digital 8 vidieo camera with still mode/memory stick. I'm impressed with the quality of prints from this printer. The software is easy and it's hard to tell the 4/6 prints from 35mm ones, and the camera is only 1 meg/px resolution.
Excerpt: I have been using this printer for a good few years and it hasn't given me any problems. I like the fact it has a USB slot so you can print directly from your camera. I have done this once and it wasn't hard to do - although I think you can only do it with certain cameras.
Excerpt: Best printer I ever had. Excellent B&W quality, very good colour, fast, quiet, great at informing when something wrong, no-fuss re-start when corrected, very rarely jammed paper, easy to un-jam, very easy to change cartridges, happily took compatible cartridges.
Guter bis sehr guter Drucker..mit einigen Abstrichen

Summary: Der i560 ist durchweg ein solider und durchdachter Drucker. Die Qualität des Ausdruckes und die Vorteile der einzelnen Farbtanks wurden hier schon mehrfach erläutert und gelobt. Meiner Meinung nach hat der Drucker leichte Farbprobleme.
