Summary: This is what i wrote my e mail friends when my printer broke We are sorry you missed the layout and burial. But Matt preformed a biopsy and the Cannon Printer was pronounced terminal. So with such a dire diagnosis we decided to have the funeral and burial tonight. We placed all the parts in a large garbage bag and proceeded to place it in the large plastic container in which Rumpke Dumpke will squash tomorrow and it will live on as land fill.
Summary: I have had nothing but excellent results in my use of the Canon Pixma iP3500 and recommend it to anyone. The print quality is excellent for pictures that I have taken, far superior to previous printers that I have used. My use is strictly in the hame for family purposes, and those needs are well met. I particularly like the system using four separate ink cartridges, which I believe is more economical in the long run.
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. (see above posting concerning printers with the printer head in the cartridges) The quality is very good. Documents look great. Photos are awesome. Installation was a snap.
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. The FIRST time you use it, it has to load the system with ink and prep the print heads. This takes a while.
