Great printer- expensive ink.

Michael J. Edelman, Amazon
1 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought my Pixma ip 1600 after throwing out yet another Epson that dred up and became useless if not babied and used every day. The reviews looked good, the Pixma was cheap, so I bought it. A year later it still prints perfectly, even if I don't use it for two weeks.

Great printer but there's a catch...

  • Summary: So this printer is pretty awesome. Reviews are favorable, it's small, pretty quiet, print quality and speed are great and it ridiculously cheap... the catch is the cartridges. They're very expensive and recycled carts are very hard to come by.

Great printer, but mine jammed and broke in 2 mos.

  • Summary: Awesome printer, awesome price. I'd give it 5 stars if it didn't jam and become unusable. If no one else had this problem, then maybe it's random and normal. The thing is, this printer was so cheap, it doesn't bother me too much. Oh, and it works great with Mac.

Expensive Printer in Long run

SSingh "Sandeep Singh", Amazon
10 August 2006
  • Summary: After Printing 45 colored 4x6 and 3-4 large size Photos the color cartridge ran out of colour. The cost of the color cartridge is $25.00 So I got my photo $25/50 0r .50 cents per print. In the long run this printer is very expensive. I had i560 and used to print at least +100 Photos.

  • Pros: Fast printing (once it finally starts), crisp text, cheap in cartridges.
  • Cons: Takes FOREVER to get going, warming up its motors and such. Annoying little program must be open in order for it to work on a Mac.

  • Excerpt: The Canon Pixma iP600 is a fantastic printer but it does have a few downsides. WARNING - it doesnt come equipped with the usb printer cable required and the software accompaning it is not great. The picture quality is excellent, as good as any photos printed in a photo lab.
  • Pros: Speed, Colour Quality
  • Cons: Noise, expensive to replace the Cartridges

  • Pros: great quality, new print heads each time, borderless printing
  • Cons: cartridges are patented and expensive  - cant just get compatable ones
