Functional. Nothing too special. Hard to color manage.

Summary: I bought this photo printer for a color managing class in Photography. I wasn't looking to do my own color managing but the class required a photo printer so I looked for the most affordable option which brought me here. Its your basic no frills photo printer. The ink lasts for about 20 full page prints max. I found it difficult to get the printer to match the colors of my images even with the ColorMunki tool.
Summary: This printer is okay - a decent value for the price paid. No bells or whistles. One frustrating thing that is apparently common now among all printers and brands is the fact that you can't just print a simple page without the printer taking what seems like 5 minutes to "prepare" to print, with noises and moving parts apparently flying back and forth. Then, after printing, it has to do the same thing. What the heck is going on in there?
Conclusion: It's a good-quality, inexpensive printer. It prints out high quality looking photos and nice looking print. Having said that, it uses ink pretty quickly and the replacement cost of ink is high.
Summary: Hello Im from Indonesia, I purchase this printer using gift card, the printer is 100% new, arrived in 6 days using DHL. All is Ok, but you forget the USB cable. I dont find it in the box. Please re-check again before shipping. The Total cost with shipping to my city is $125.13. I know its very expensive. Thanks.
Summary: I got this on sale for 29 dollars from Fry's but figured I would review it on Amazon because that is where a lot of people are probably buying these things. Photo quality, even with a good grade of photo paper, was just OK. I'd give it a rating of 'passable' for any photos that are quickly glanced at.
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: It's just okay. I updated my operating system and had to retire my old HP printer because it was no longer supported. Unlike with the old HP, which is built like a tank and has never given me a problem, the colors from the Canon turn out too red, at least on the economy photo paper I've been accustomed to using over the years for school projects. If anyone has a remedy for this, I'd really appreciate hearing from you.
