Summary: The Pixma IP 3600 is a good printer - it replaced my Pixma IP4700. I like the feature of five ink tanks - just replace or refill the one that is empty. The duplex printing - two sided - is a joke. The operator must turn the sheet or sheets over and reinsert them in the rear paper tray to get the printing on side 2. The IP4700 did it all and that is what I was expecting when the description said duplex printing.
Summary: My old Canon IP4000 printer finally died. I chose the Canon IP3600 because I needed a color printer with good resolution, but not a $$$ top of the line stand alone photo printer. The IP3600 Printer arrived quickly but did not print, after spending about 30 min. on the telephone with canon support going through many "deep cleanings" - and restarting the installation from scratch, it still didn't print.
Summary: Receive my printer ans was excited about using it....This printer was bought for the purpose of printing edible pictures was happy with it's performance thus far would update status if quality and performance changes.
Summary: Bought this one because of my experience with the PIXMA IP4700. I can't tell the difference between the two except for a couple of print features. The print speed is good, text print is very good and photo printing is excellent. If you are looking for an all purpose printer for home use, this could be a very smart choice. It comes with all 5 ink cartridges which makes this printer just about free. A complete set of ink cartridges will run about $56.00 to $60.00.
I really don't like what Canon is doing to their printers

Summary: I have used Canon printers for years. They have been my favorite because of the way the paper feeds into the printer. It rolls in from the top, instead of being picked up on rollers, and being pushed to the print heads. This push type has always given me problems, with the rollers wearing down, and the printer stopping working. Now, Canon is using their cartridges with a computer chip, to dispense the printing ink. This dramatically increases the cost of the ink supply.
Summary: I've always used Canon printers and they usually deliver good results even on the low end of the product line, which this printer is. The price was very good for the quality you get. Of course Canon and other printer companies can sell printers of this quality at a low price point because they more that make up for the deal on the printer when you have to buy replacement ink tanks.
