Outstanding Printer

CW, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Contrary to the other posted reviews here, I've owned a Canon ipf 8000 and an 8300. I've had no problems with any internal circuit boards although two print heads were replaced at no charge, even though out of warranty. Canon USA (I can't speak for other countries) has been extremely helpful with a call center in the US, as opposed to somewhere half way around the planet. I print virtually everything on canvas or matte paper, on rolls.

Crazy Canon business model

Darren J Tillett, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: A great printer, fatally flawed for me by the cost of servicing and consumables. I have 6 x 8300s, 4 x 8300Ss, 3 x 8000s, 1 x 8100. These printers seem to either work - or are flaky from the very start. From the above I had 3 x 8300s that died almost instantly from a mist fan error - traced back to a faulty mainboard ($1700 ea. for parts alone). The printers are idle and have been for over a year.

Beware when print heads go

L. Thiffault, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: I have had my IPF8300 for 2 1/2 years now. I hardly use it because the expected business I had hoped for did not materialize. I do prints for friends or myself once a month to keep it running along. I always leave it on to do it's daily ink shake. Two weeks ago I changed the M/C, and one ink was looking low. Next week, right printhead gone. Sent for new one, got it, and called Canon to get unlock code. Then I got another error message while on phone with tech support.

Prints nice but has lots of issues...

ML500, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: I own both an Epson 9900 and the Canon ipf8300. First off had major problems from the start, I had to replace heads every 2 months, (under warranty but the printer is down for days)...finally after constant calls to Canon and the retailer they set out a service tech who replaced 75% of the internal parts. Have had no problems after major overhall. Pros: Prints photos great!
