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. I got this for less than $100, so I think I got this for a bargain. I guess the price went up. This printer is not the fastest, but it got the job done.
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. I wanted a printer that you can purchase re manufactured ink for. I didn't want to spend a lot on ink. Secondarily, I wanted a printer that printed a decent amount of b/w per min. Lastly, I wanted it to be portable.
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. A few months ago my laptop became damaged and had to be replaced.
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. Great transaction!
Summary: I bought this printer mostly because they last a long time with much printing..the cartridges can easily be refilled without the printer shutting down until you buy new...a plus because the newer printers wont let you do that...saves money and with everyday use i have one thats been used over a year..excellent..
Summary: Precise, high-quality text, graphics, and Photo printing is a snap with the iP2600. While OEM ink cartridges can be a little pricey, remanufactured or refilled versions will deliver satisfactory results at greatly reduced cost. Overall, the simplicity of operation, and software options lend to the fine attributes of this superb Canon machine.
Summary: Remarkably good printing quality in a reasonably-priced product. Replacement ink is readily available in OEM, both standard capacity PG-30/CL-31, and more volumnous 40/41 series. While the OEM may be a bit pricey, Remanufactured units work well, and are considerably less expensive. The only downside is that the Remans will not display ink levels.
Summary: This printer is the best out there hands down. Will print everything from photos to envelops. Clear and crisp colors and great ppm speeds. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality inkjet at a reasonable price.
