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: I bought this printer for my mother in law and she loves it she has had no trouble with it at all. Its a little loud but prints very good and prints great photos. This is the third canon printer I have bought on Amazon 1 for me 1 for my daughter and 1 for my mother in law and we like them all very...
Pros: Had to replace my PIXMA IP3000, the print head got clogged and it was cheaper to by new printer than get the part. Excellent product, took it out of the box, installed the drivers, plugged everything in and it worked. Print quality is very good and fast. Photo prints are amazing. I especially lik...
Summary: Excellent printer for this price range. Replaced an older bubble jet from Canon and I did not have to remove the cords from the PC. Just unplugged the old printer and plugged in this one, ran the set cd and was spared the crawl on my back under my desk! Individual ink tanks are the way to go.
Summary: This is the good stuff I've come to expect of Canon, and they didn't let me down here.
Pros: Individual ink tanks for each color, just like my old Canon S500 had when that was called the "smart tank" system. Avoids wasting ink by having to change the entire color cartridge because only one color is out. Fast and not too noisy. Good quality of printouts.
Summary: I had a Epson R220 printer. It was time for new ink and after having all the old cartriges stacking up(since no one will take them in for credit ie Staples or Office Depot), I started to look for a new printer instead. It had to be fast, and the ink refills had be comparable to the epson costs.
Summary: I researched document/photo printers before deciding on this model. Amazed at the reported quality for the low price, I was even more surprised when I began to use the printer. Business documents turned out equal in quality to my old HP laser. Color documents were excellent also.
