Summary: Ok so one nozzle dying is not so bad right? Well once I replaced it then the magenta one died. I was using Canon ink and not cheap replacement ones. I used very good quality paper and photo paper. I am not sure what the cause was but it just kept clogging the nozzles. When it was working right it spent an inordinate amount of time in the purge cycle, basically dumping ink into the pad next to the heads.
Summary: prints well, but it doesn't stay on. In between print jobs it turns off, and then I forget I have to turn it back on each time. That's a hassel. I bought a pre owned printer, and the price was reasonable. Hope it lasts a while.
Summary: Printer functioned very well for about 6 months, but then failed to print colors properly after that? Replacing print inks, print head, cleaning the print heads, reinstalling the program, etc. failed to make any difference. Of course I had the exact same problems with an earlier HP photo printer, and a later Canon photo pinter using different PC's?
Summary: I had great difficulty installing this printer!!!!!! Even w/ Tech support. Because of old Epson program????--I will never know but it was a bear to install. At the moment it is working but I have not used it very much. do hope we have a long and happy life together......
Summary: This is a nice little Windows printer. For my Windows output, I like it. If I had only a Windows box, I might give it 4 or 5 stars. But while the PIXMAs are marketed as Mac compatible, this is misleading. The drivers from Canon are basically non-standard and don't work with CUPS. This means that the printer cannot be used by a Mac over a network, something which is mentioned nowhere in the documentation.
