Remove ink cartridges when sending printers thru mail.
8 April 2012
Summary: Please inform buyer and others that whenever they send a printer, to please remove the ink cartridges. When I received the printer and opened the box, ink had leaked all over the printer, box, etc. It was a horrible mess. Thank you, Carolyn
Summary: We purchased this printer for a client that needed a small footprint color/B&W printer. This one fits the bill very well. Canon recommends using their own replacement cartridges, however, we've used LD Products refills and they work very well. Negatives to this purchase were: 1.
Summary: I stopped buying very expensive printers that I just use to print text and very few pictures. I have 2 dedicated photo (expensive) printers for that. This printer is great! I read the negative reviews and don't understand what those people expected from this printer.
Summary: with such a cheap printer you can't go wrong. It actually prints quite fast. Only real downside is that it doesn't have separate cartridges for all the colors, but at the price you can't really expect this feature. If you mainly print documents and only the occasional graphics (newsletters, etc.
Summary: I've had the Canon Pixma iP1600 Photo Printer for 3 months and have had no problems printing 5-10 pages (on average) daily of mixed color and black and white content. I can't recall of it ever jamming, either, even when printing muti-page documents.
