Wonderful and Faithful Printer

R. Simcox "Ged Sparrowhawk", Amazon
4 October 2006
  • Summary: I've had two of these babys for several years now and they never cease to put out great copy, whether b&w or photos. I have no idea why others are disappointed (probably the same dude) but mine work great and it's sooooo quiet. Do the print heads ever clog???

Junk

Mother "Mother", Amazon
3 August 2005
  • Summary: The paper never fed correctly. When I installed the printer, I felt that there was something not right with the print head. The print head would have to go thru a little warm up routine before each time it printed. But it printed well, printed quickly, but was noisy.

Another black ink failure

Spiral, Amazon
18 April 2005
  • Summary: If you read the other reviews for this printer, you'll notice that when this printer first came out, it got a bunch of great reviews. Now that it has been out for a couple of years, you will notice a bunch of bad reviews with the same complaint: the black ink stops working.

Originally I loved this printer, BUT.

Andrew Mayo, Amazon
27 September 2004
  • Summary: After 18 months fairly low-volume use at home, the printhead suddenly stopped printing black. It looks like an electronic failure in the head itself; it is not clogged, and has only been run on genuine Canon cartridges.

Best bang for the buck!!!

Steven J. Swanson, Amazon

  • Summary: I got a great deal on my S520. Only $60 after rebate and coupon. I took it to the 3 day NFDA convention in Vegas. We were printing full page color photos of our booth visitors standing next to our mummy. In the 3 days I printed over 200 full page, edge-to-edge photos.

Prints great, but print head is major design flaw!

Richard S. Davis, Amazon
21 January 2004
  • Summary: This is my third Canon printer in about 10 years, my first two lasted roughly 4-5 years, and when I needed a new one, Consumer Reports gave this model its top marks. After six months I started having problems with clogged print heads on color.

Another Lemon

SFRick_Kev, Amazon
17 December 2003
  • Summary: It worked fine initially but now it won't print at all. Seems to be related to the blank ink printer head being clogged. Tried to clean it but nothing worked. I guess you get what you pay for. I think Canon may have produced this product for obsolescense in less than a year.

Confirmed customer

Charles F. Tate, Amazon

  • Summary: I received this printer in the correct delivery time. I was glad to see everything was there and I set it up easily. I use the MacOSX so the directions are not great for us. I called tech support directly with a question about having to download a driver which was not on the CD.
