Summary: As an owner of an IP2600, the previous entry in this line, I regret to say that I was disappointed in this product. While it does the job, and does it at a low price ($29+s&h+hst on sale), the unit itself feels shoddy to me, and does not come with accessories that I would consider standard for a desktop printer. Namely, the lack of an included USB cable. Yes I could use the USB cable from an old printer, but what if I was buying it for someone who had no old printer?
Pros: Does the job of a desktop printer with no frills. Compact unit.
Cons: Does not come with a USB cable or a paper tray - paper is shot out straight onto your desk or the floor. Feels cheap.
Summary: I got this printer for 19.99 at the open box sale. I must say I was surprised with the photo quality this printer gave me. It has amazing quality pictures if you use real nice glossy photo paper, with regular matte paper photos look terrible but that is to be expected. The printer is very small and stylish but the plastic makes it feel a bit cheap (which it is). All in all everyday photo and document use this printer is great!
Pros: Small, Style, Quality, Price
Cons: Cheap Plastic, Ink runs out fast, Does not come with a USB cable!
Summary: This is a great cheap printer. Works flawlessly. Ive had it direct connected to xp, vista, win 7, as well as to my router AND shared through a computer. Works all the time. Only time it didn't was when a power out shut it down. then it causes a pop up so you cant print remotely without pressing ok on the error saying it was not shut down properly. that may very well be common with printers...i dont know.
Summary: Not a bad little printer for the price. Got it on sale for $26 bucks which isn't too bad at all! Runs well, setup was fast and easy. I didn't need the drivers disk. Windows 7 found the drivers before I could even take the disk out! If it lasts me 6 months I got my money's worth from it! Canon is a great name so I fully expect it to go the distance!
Pros: CHEAP! $25.99, you can't even buy ink for that price!
Summary: i just needed something to print documents for school and this was the cheapest printer i could find after sale and PM. I tested printed some 4x6 photos on glossy photo paper and they come out actually not too bad.
Pros: -prints pictures ok
Cons: -kinda big, -does not come with usb cable, -ink is more expensive than printer
