Summary: I love this printer. It is a fine one. The ink tanks are easy to refill, no setting chip, so the ink cartridge is very cheap and easy to find on Ebay.You will save a lot of money.It is fast with black and wite prits.
Summary: I bought this printer because it is very similar in features and operation to my old Canon i550 which recently gave out on me. It also uses the same ink cartridges, which I have a bunch of, and they are cheap to replace. These printers are solid workhorses and economical to operate for routine printing. I have a newer Canon Multipass that I use for photo work. One problem with these older printers is that the print heads eventually quit working.
Pros: I bought a refurbished unit from Fry's for under 40 USD. Great looking prints from my 6MP Canon camera the 4x6 photos are fantastic and the 8.5x11 borderless look great. I bought it originally for printing iron-on transfers since you can't do that with th
Cons: A little slow to warm up if you haven't used it in a while.
Pros: I bought this printer for basic needs and not for photo's...It's as good a printer for home owners for the price and quality. I've paid more for an Epson and HP, but the Cannon beats both of them per cost and overall quality.
Cons: There better photo printers with better options. But for the price, I see no con as one pays for what he gets.
