Summary: If you can find one buy it. I bought mine today for $40. I replaced my old HP DeskJet when it died. I work in a reprographics company, and worked in a commercial photo lab for 15 years, and shoot weddings on a part time basis. It's much faster than my ancient printer.
Summary: Okay, I haven't fully read all the reviews, but I skimmed the titles and I wanted to address a few things. First, this printer is NOT slow. Judge the speed of the printer by the second page it kicks out, not the first. This printer is fast and snappy whether you're printing color or text.
Summary: The Canon iP3500 operates quickly, reliably and quietly. The separate ink tanks and print head features allow very economical printing. You merely replace the color ink tank you need. The separate inkjet printhead is easily cleaned and reused.
