Excellent print quality and cheap cartridge replacement.
17 October 2011
Summary: My Missus got me this printer as a birthday gift some years back. The main "selling point" (to me) about this printer is the ink savings. This printer uses four narrow ink cartridges (red/blue/yellow/black) and one wide cartridge, which is an additional black. If one color cartridge becomes empty, you simply replace that one color. Now here's the super-cool thing.
Summary: Bought this Pixma iP4000 to replace a Pixma iP6000 that I wore out. The 4000 is notably faster, with excellent print quality. It has two black cartridges, and two fewer color cartridges (no photo cyan, no photo magenta). I rarely use it to print photos; mostly in my home office for flyers, brochures, and other color mailers. Rarely use it for plain text documents; I use a laser for that. I'm 90% or more pleased. The duplexing is a nice feature, and I use it occasionally.
Summary: These iP4000 printers are great machines, but mine was badly damaged in shipment and was DOA upon receipt. After disassembly of printer and broken case and a tube of superglue, I pieced it back together and got it working. The output is surprisingly good. The case looks pretty bad, but it seems to work, but who knows for how long. One of the great things about the iP4000 is the fact that it uses generic inks which are very inexpensive and seem to work well.
Canon Pixma iP4000 - unleash your photo creativity!

Summary: The Canon Pixma iP4000 is a 4 color ink smart and flexible photo printer with multiple features and benefits not found in other printers of the same class or type. The printer does full duplex, two sided page printing while also housing two print paper trays. This gives the flexibility to both save paper if printing out documents and have a 2nd tray already loaded with photo paper to print photos if you decide to print a photo.
