used printer received from seller nonworking and defective
15 August 2011
Summary: As soon as I opened the box I removed the printer and set it up. I immediately discovered that the paper tray was detached and broken. I then tried to print and found that the flashing yellow light indicated a problem that could not be repaired. I had previously owned two identical printers, and wanted one just like it. The manufacturer has discontinued the model, which is why I purchased the used Canon printer.
Summary: VERY expensive to operate. A decent printer for the price. Does what it's supposed to do but WOW it drinks ink like water. And not the generic stuff either, it has to have the expensive Canon ink. I've only owned this for about 5 months, but I think I'm going to throw it away and buy something a lot less expensive to operate.
Summary: I've been using Canon printers happily since the very first Bubble Jet. Over the years I learned how to use bulk ink, relatively inexpensive non-OEM cartridges, etc. I've used a few HP printers, but they always seemed to develop hardware or other problems after a year or so. So I picked up the ip2600 for general use, mainly in my home office, where I simply want something to print documents (usually in fast mode greyscale). Occasionally something in color.
Summary: I've had this printer for two weeks and I have to say, this is one of the most inconsistent printers I've ever used. I regularly use both high end and budget printers for my art-related business. This one is obviously in the budget category, but the printing results were still far below what I expected (and have achieved with similarly priced units in the past.) For one, the printing colors are quite dull from the beginning.
Summary: I've had a HP printer for years. I'd replace the ink about once a year, that's with printing a ton of pictures. I went to buy ink for my Canon and commented to the salesman about how quickly the printer ran out of ink. He told me that they are shipped with a partial ink cartridge and a full one would last "forever". Well that was Monday, this is Friday and I'm out of ink! I printed up around thirty fliers. That's it. I think I'll go back to HP!
Summary: I have a B&W workhorse laser (HP) and didn't use this printer much except for a few color prints once in awhile. If I had, I probably would have run into the feeder issue a lot sooner like many people out there. However, under such little use, it took 11 months for the "Feeder Failure" to appear. The feeder starts grabbing just the right side only and jams the paper. You can try cleaning it, but it doesn't work.
