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. Turned out to be a software issue that took quite a while to rectify. After working that out, this printer has been working just fine.
Summary: This is a pretty good "Cheap" printer, which is why I bought it. The print quality is good. Setup is easy and so far "INK" is my only complaint. Canon OEM ink is expensive, but this printer doesn't work without it because of the Canon microchip they put in the ink cartridges.
Summary: I have this printer. It is my second. While I would have kept the printer for it's printing quality, I chose to buy a new one. The ink cartridges alone can cost $35.00 and yet this brand new printer, with ink, cost only $24.00. My first printer was having a problem with the paper feeding. Each sheet that went through would crumple on the side where the sheet feeder wheel is.
Summary: This was a gift. I was looking for a printer for my sister. She needed something that would be easy on cartridge refills. I picked this one because of the price and it should do everything she needs it for. So far so good.
Excerpt: My husband bought me this printer for Christmas because our old one was rather large and took up lots of space. My requirements for a new one was something which was easy to use and compact. I also didn't want something expensive and so when he was looking at different types he opted for this one and informs me it cost him £35 and that included the cartridges too.
Canon PIXMA iP2600, Good Printing Quality, Poor in Speed
7 March 2010
Excerpt: Lately, my friend bought Canon PIXMA iP2600 for his business purpose. His business is Managed Service for Telecommunication Industry, so he has to buy printer which can produce good photo printing quality but still can use for document printing also. Because he and his subordinates don't have ability to install and set the printer for their purpose, I helped him to install and set the printer for the first time.
Pros: good printing quality
Cons: high resolution photo printing speed is so slow
