Summary: I wanted a printer I could use for good quality b & W reports, yet still be able to print really good quality photos from my digital camera. I got both, and very happily, as not only is it speedy (even w/ high quality photos), but economical also. You can buy separate ink tanks for the cartridges. The quality of the photos actually surpassed my HP P-1000 series, and you can print borderless pix. An excellent buy for the price!
Excerpt: I bought this printer in the need and hope for something to do fantastic prints, something easy to use and cheap to run. What I hoped for is what I got. I have used this printer for a year now and haven't had any problems yet. It has a connection for Canon cameras that have the some connection. USB connection Power lead. Individual cartridges.
Pros: Brilliant Prints, Individual Cartridges, Good Tech . Support
Excerpt: This is the tight-fisted old git's guide to getting a decent printer. The cost of the printer DOES NOT relate to continuing running costs. There are other aspects such as ink and cartridge prices to take into consideration. Having had 3 Epson Stylus printers fail in 2 years I was loath to buy Epson again. The printheads are just too prone to failure from something as simple as an air bubble.
Canon i560 - Top Quality Printing at Budget Prices
18 May 2004
Excerpt: I purchased my Canon i560 printer and spare cartridges for it from the wonderful ebuyer.com for the bargain price of around £100. I'd recommend shopping around though if you intend to buy one. Although this initially seems like quite a bit for mid-range inkjet, you must bear in mind that the cartridges are simply ink tanks and can be found for around £3 each per colour. Also the ink lasts for ages so this works out a very cheap printer to run.
Excerpt: Installed and printing in 5 minutes, could not be easier. Fantastic borderless photo printing. I am a professional photographer and it would be difficult to disinguish the Canon i560 results from lab prints. From a 4 colour system this is amazing. Who says you need 6 or 7 colours for brilliant results? My only slight disappointment came from the text / document printing. The text does not look true black although it is very clear and crisp, it looks a little washed out.
Pros: superb photo printing, fast, small footprint
Excerpt: I recently bought the Canon i560 printer primarily for use as a general purpose printer. I found the installation very straight-forward. The packaging was excellent and it took me only about 40 minutes to get it up and running on my XP system. As part of the introductory pack, canon included some photo paper and I tried this out. Fisrt of all, I forgot to set the paper size and wasted some sheets.
Excerpt: I do a lot of photo printing and have allways used Epson printers (epson300, c60, 830u) and every one has had the same problem, blocked nozzles. I use a canon printer at work and have never had a problem so after a bit of research I decided to plump for the canon i560. This printer produces top quality prints including borderless prints, is very quiet, compact and looks very stylish on your desktop.
Pros: quality prints - cheap cartridges - quiet operation
Excerpt: My requirements were for a printer with separate ink tanks, A4 borderless printing, low ink costs and good quality images for my digital photography. The printer has not disappointed on any count. My daughter's university notes get printed out in draft mode and the quality is great, every bit as good as my last printer's normal text, but my digital photos are superb. Colours and clarity are excellent with most photo papers.
Pros: lower ink costs, good photos, clear draft mode
Canon i560 , 10 Jahre Erfahrung, druckt qualitativ Fotos
20 November 2013
Excerpt: Ich habe den Drucker 10 Jahre benutzt und habe sehr viele Erfahrungen gesammelt: Aus der zeitlichen Betrachtung war der Drucker einer der Besten. Da früher keine Multifunktionsdrucker gab, kam man mit solchen Druckern zurecht. Der Drucker druckt (muss ich ehrlich sagen) im Großen und Ganzen qualitativ. Zwar sehen die Bilder auf den Blättern nich detailiert und scharf aus,dennoch ist die Farbverteilung, der Kontrast und die Helligkeit gut angepasst und druckt pixelfrei.
Pros: gute Qualität
Cons: lange dauerndes Drucken, regelmäßiges Reinigen notwendig, wenig Ausstattung(nur Drucken möglich)
Excerpt: Hallo Ihr i560 canon besitzer. Habe da eine Frage zum Drucker,mein i560 ist über 2 jahre alt,leider seit einiger Zeit nicht funktionsfähig. Die Grüne Lampe leuchtet 1x und die Gelbe 5x auf obwohl alle Patronen voll sind. Wer kann mir da einen tipp geben in der Gebrauchsanweisung steht leider nichts von solch einer Störung.
