Summary: I bought the Pixma iP2702 to use as a local printer for my office computer, so I could print on letterhead and envelopes without having to run to a shared network printer. It's a good printer for the money, prints surprisingly fast and offers perfectly fine print quality.
Pros: Prints fast once it's warmed up. Print quality is good. Basic maintenance, like cleaning and aligning print heads, is easy.
Summary: Every photo I've printed has these lines going across them. Some are less noticeable than others, but it is very annoying.
Pros: Price and print speed.
Cons: They should take 'photo' out of the title. I bought this specifically to print some photos at home and try and save trips to the local store. Sadly this thing lacks the photo quality I was hoping for. But I guess you get what you pay for. Also, the ink is very pricey, you may actually be able to ...
Cons: It takes about a full minute after your press "Print" for the printer to figure out what you wanted it to do. Once it realizes you pressed the Print button, then it spits out the paper really quickly; I just wish it didn't take so long to think beforehand.
Summary: I left the printer on so it would be ready when needed. USB hard drives and thumb drives suddenly weren't recognized: "unknown device" and "not working properly" type error messages. I researched and tried numerous fixes including uninstalling the USB controllers in device manager. Nothing worked.
Pros: Good value Print quality looks good with my casual use [I don't print photos just greeting cards]
Cons: USB conflict - external USB hard drives and thumb drives won't work WHEN THE PRINTER IS TURNED ON. TURN PRINTER OFF AND THEY WORK FINE. Probably uses lots of Ink but I plan to manually refill cartridges
Summary: FOR THE MONEY THIS IS NOT A BAD PRINTER. IT IS SLOW AND NOISY, BUT GETS THE JOB DONE. AS WITH MOST INKJET PRINTERS THE REAL LIABILITY IS THE INK COSTS. TOO HI. I ONLY USE THIS PRINTER FOR LETTERS AND IT DOES A REASONABLE JOB.
Summary: WE have these printers and are fairly happy with them. They print a fairly nice photo and do text excellently. What we like more was that this printer has a OPTION to print only Black without the use of the Color Cartridge in case you are low or out of it (found in the Maintenance section under "ink...
Summary: Great price, great ordering and shipping from this vendor. Arrived sooner than expected. But.....quality of machine is not very good. Don't expect too much and you will be happy. Easy to setup, easy to use, small on desk. We wanted it for pictures only and it just isn't up to that duty.
