Canon PIXMA IP 1700 printer bought from Amazon.com

Sudhindra "Sudhi", Amazon
24 March 2012
  • Summary: The quality of the printer (CANON PIXMA iP 1700) bought Amazon is horrible. On the website the condition of the printer was mentioned as "Good", but is really worst and has hardly worked. I feel cheated and frustrated. I even bought new cartridge considering that the issue might be due to the cartridge, but the printer is not at all working.

Don't bother

Steven T "SnTholiday", Amazon

  • Summary: Canon calls this a photo printer? Prints are faded, blurred, and distorted. Compare this printer to an HP Deskjet 3940 and decide for yourself. Do not invest in this printer. However, if you are stuck with this printer because you bought it as a package deal, either sell it on eBay or give it to your kids. I REPEAT, do not buy this printer, you will be sorry. Every Canon printer I have ever purchased has not met my expectations.

This is NOT a photo printer

Peter, Amazon
10 February 2007
  • Summary: The black-and-white printing is OK but the photo printing is terrible. This printer simply cannot print black in photo mode. I used the Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy, one of Canon's premium photo papers. The blacks look gray, the colors are dull. It reminds me of a newspaper photo. The review on CNET is misleading - it says that the colors were a bit washed out but they were impressed nevertheless. The only thing that can impress me is how much the colors are washed out.

Why No USB Cable

Rajesh Singh, Amazon
23 December 2006
  • Summary: I am really not able to understand what is this cheap kind of strategy not to provide USB cable with this product, especially when thats the only interface available technically? Can someone make me understand the logic (business sense) behind this, especially for a Canon like brand!!??? Definitely, consumers expect much better from Canon. "Canon", please bring better business sense to market that would help end users/consumers. Thanks.

No USB cable included!!

Robert Jacob "book-scout", Amazon
12 December 2006
  • Summary: I bought this printer as part of a package. The package included the computer, monitor, and printer. I didn't really need the printer, but the price was great for the computer/monitor, and the printer was basically a freebie. I hooked up the computer system. I thought about the printer I already had. It was older and jammed once in a while when I was printing, so I decided what the heck, I'll hook up the new printer. I unboxed it and was starting to hook it up.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Had it less than a year and it broke! I couldn't find the receipt and therefore could not return it. It was hardly used as verified by the ink still in the cartridges. Put me off buying another Canon!
