Summary: This is a great printer but it's too old to buy today. The problem is that the print head will clog. It's not a matter of if, but when it will clog. When this happens you'll need to buy an eighty dollar print head. Unlike Epson and other printers this print head doesn't last very long. Please investigate a new model instead of getting this old model.
Summary: The ip3000 has never worked as it was advertised it would with regard to printing out photos, it will not print on any kind of photo paper / Ink Jet, etc,...without leaving lines across the paper and photo being printed. After spending a lot of time and money trying to get it to work properly it still will not print out photos properly, we are very disapointed with this Canon ip3000.
Summary: This is the 3rd Canon printer I have bought in just over 3 years and it is the last time I will ever buy one. At just over one year of owning each printer, I had different problems with each one, too expensive to repair, so ended up just buying another. But after this one, I will never buy another Canon. They work well for about a year, but after that they quit running.
Summary: The printer head clogged. Now my printer is ruined. It prints everything with pink lines through it. I'm probably going to try my luck with printing photos at CVS or something. Warning to Canon PIXMA users, DO NOT USE IMITATION INK! I made a mistake and bought Staples brand cartridges, after that the thing clogged and even after spending more money replacing the damn things, it's still messed up.
Summary: I haven't used the printer that much, but what I have used it for has been good. I'm a college student so i mostly print out text documents. They are not the absolute best quality, but the printer gets the job done. I have also experimented with printing photos. I printed out a photo i got off of the internet on to glossy photo paper and the picture came out pretty well. This printer has 3 individual cartridges for color instead of that one big one.
Summary: Wenn man wie ich einige hunderte Seiten gedruckt hat, versagt der Drucker seinen Dienst. Vorher erscheintdie Meldung: Wartung wird registriert. Nach weiterer Intensivreinigung erschien die Meldung: Druckkopf defekt und dann konnte ich den Drucker nicht mehr einschalten - stromlos -
