Trustworthy, sturdy for 4 years of college and hopefully more
6 July 2014
Summary: I bought this printer in 2009 before college, and boy did I love it! I still do love it, and I plan to take it with me to grad school. I am sure in the past 5 years of use, this printer did stutter and jam several times... but for the most part, my impression of my printer is a positive one.
Summary: I bought this used for a reasonable price. When it first arrived I kept getting an error when trying to install the ink cartridges. Turns out the printer had sat for a few months. I cleaned the heads and the cartridge, and all is well.
There are b etter options to spend you hard-earn dollars on

Summary: CHEAP-CHEAP-CHEAP You get what you pay for! I generally liked the features of this printer, and being a very light user, it should have filled my needs nicely. Speed is really slow, but again for the little I use a printer, that was fine and to be expected for an inexpensive model.
Summary: I bought this about 18 months ago and it still works fine. My reason for purchasing was wanting to have both my printers use the same ink cartridges and my research showed this model did. Amazing how ink cartridges are not standardized, even within a manufacturer's models.
Great as a printer, but consider a 3-in-1 if you want to scan/copy.

Summary: I have owned the Canon PIXMA IP2600 for several years and found it to be of good quality. I recently acquired an Epson 3-in-1 to be able to scan and copy (also prints). I continue to use the PIXMA, primarily for black and white, as it holds more paper and the ink cost is less.
Summary: I bought this because it was cheaper and easier than to get my broken one of the same model serviced, plus I had a few of the ink cartridges and I didn't want those to go to waste. The printer works as stated and is a great basic printer for anybody. I received the item quickly and with no issues.
Summary: Bought this to replace an old Canon PIXMA IP1600, they use the same ink cartridges and I was having problems constantly with the IP1600. Upon arrival of the 'new' printer, it seemed to work ok, but then I ran into the same problem of an error every time I attempted to print.
