Summary: This is my second Canon printer, the previous (S800) lasted for about 10 years until I wore out the print-head. The ip-3600's internal construction does not appear to be as good as the S800; however it is easy to set up and get to work and it provides well balanced color prints immediately. The print quality of both documents and photographs is very good.
Summary: I got this printer to use as a printer to print edible images for my cake decorating. I also purchased the edible inks but it did not come with the photo black. Does anyone know if you can use the ordinary photo black with the rest of the edible ink? Does not make sense. Can't seem to find edible photo black ink.
Summary: Bought this printer based on reviews. Have had it about a year. After about three months, it started making weird 'squeaking' noises. After contacting Canon found out it was 'cleaning the heads.' OK. My other printers did that once in a while. But this one will 'clean the heads' between each sheet it prints. And shake! Shakes so much my whole computer desk shakes. Contacted Canon again - advised to run the maintenance on it. Did that. Didn't make a difference.
Summary: I've set up ten of these printers for my office. Each one has trouble picking up paper from the cassette. The cassette is the default paper source and if there is no paper loaded, it *will* *not* automatically switch to the rear paper tray as I expected it would. The cassette is clumsy and error prone. It has a cheap plastic cover that doesn't stay in place. To easily access the cassette you must close the output door of the printer.
Summary: I read all the reviews on this printer and decided it would be a good choice for me. I ordered it new from the Amazon supplier on 6/9. It was shipped 6/11 and just arrived tonight, 6/17. It seems like a long time to me but maybe that's cuz i was waiting for it. BUT, I haven't even opened it yet and am having doubts. I have a MacBook with Leopard and saw that someone posted that it was a breeze setting it up with OS X.
Summary: We were disappointed that the printer wouldn't paper feed. (This happened on a newer version Canon I had.) I bought this for my 91 year old computer savy mother. Big disappointment! I paid someone to install it for her, but the printer didn't work. Buying this as a gift makes returns a nightmare. We're wondering how we get the return label printed out and the box back to Amazon. I like Canon's so I'm ordering another one to replace this one.
