  • Summary: My third ip3000; The carriage hung up on two and rather than pay to have them repaired, bought another. It's my favorite printer. Hope this one doesn't "hang up." Have the other two; know I can probably eventually repair them.

Maintenance perspective

  • Summary: I am a certified technician for Canon (and other manufacturers) printers, and I can run down a few of the strong/weak points of this model. Overall, this is a good machine for occasional users, but doesn't deliver the best quality available. It's a good machine for what it is, and most breakdowns that I've seen are due to user error. Pros: -very fine (2pl) droplet size gives good resolution. -separate ink tank and print head for lower-cost supplies.

The Best Printer Yet!

12 July 2007
  • Excerpt: I purchased this printer during the boxing day sales, and it's exceeded all of my expectations. I know that printers are often sold at a loss as the manufacturers think they'll make it back in ink purchases, but this seemed too good to be true! In all honesty, I didn't know an awful lot about what I was buying, it just looked pretty good and was on special offer. It was only when I got this printer home that I realised what a bargain I'd grabbed myself!
  • Pros: Long lasting ink, CD printing, two trays, easy to use software package .
  • Cons: None .

Canon IP3000

  • Excerpt: First of all, the looks strike you. I feel that this printer is one of those, 'you love it or hate it', deals. I love it. It doesnt have any large protruding parts that you cant simply fold shut when not in use. It has two paper inputs, one is a tray that slots in at the bottom and one (you can see in the picture) is at the top. I rarely use the top, i just load the paper tray with a thud of paper and away I go.
  • Pros: Fast, decent prints .
  • Cons: N/A !

  • Excerpt: This printer boasts features and is the printer everyone needs. I paid £80 for my ip3000 about 2 months ago, the only reason I bought it is so that I could print directly onto the face of CD's and DVD's. Although you do need the croect type of printable CD's, i bought 100 printable CD-R's for about £20.00 on ebay. All you do is place the CD on to the supplied cassette and load it into the CD printing tray, it really is that simple.
  • Pros: Photo Printing (borderless) duplex, clear cartridges .
  • Cons: None

Another WINNER from Canon, the Dog's Wossnames

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer on spec after reading several glowing reports in the computer press and seeing how good a mates printer was. Having had 4 Epsons bomb out in as many years (just out of warranty of course), I will never touch and Epson again. And their print heads are too susceptable to air bubbles and early failure. Canon have been at the leading edge of product design and innovation for years. And NO I don't work for them.
  • Pros: Superb Print Quality, Exceptional borderless Photos, Fast, Cheap Compatible Ink Cartridges, Well Made, Prints on printable CDs/DVDs too
  • Cons: No parallel connection .  Does not make coffee

  • Excerpt: i have owned this printer for approx 9 months now and have found it to be very usefull. i have owned epson printers in the past and found them the ink to be very expensive so i thought i would try canon and it is the best thing i could have done, the print quality is very good for both photo's and cd's. the software and printer are both easy to use and understand.
  • Pros: cd/dvd printing, sperate paper feeds
  • Cons: ink cartridges .

Just what I needed

evanesco, Ciao
5 September 2005
  • Excerpt: I bought this printer after getting bored of paying a fortune for ink. The ink for this comes in 3 colours and one black. Therefore when one colour has run out, you simply replace that colour, instead of the whole cartridge. Great if you use loads of cyan and not alot of magents for examlpe. It's got 2 paper feeders, I use one for envelopes, and one for A4 paper, no more swopping and changing!
  • Pros: Seperate paper holders, cheap ink, prints straight onto cds
  • Cons: It's a little noisy
