$100, Five years, 4000 pages, 200+ full page photos, still as good as new

Summary: I've decided to review this printer as I've been looking for a new canon for 2013 and nothing they offer today seems to be as nice as this unit or its ip4500 sister model. My pixma 4300 is a workhorse and not showing any signs of wear, but I run a small business with it and I need some redundancy...
Summary: I will never buy another Canon printer. I've always had HP printers in the past and had good luck with both a laserjet and an inkjet. Then I got this piece of junk. Like other reviewers, I had problems with the ink cartridges (won't print if one is low) and the paper output tray.
Summary: I am frustrated with this printer and many others. They seem to die on me soon after the 1 year warranty is past. Printer says yellow ink tank is out when, in fact, it is full, and it's the second new tank I've tried. Every print job stalls: I have to open the cover, reset the tank and start again.
Summary: I use my printer infrequently, so my first set of ink tanks lasted about 6 months. I replaced the PGI Black cartridge (one of the 5 that this printer uses) with an authentic Canon one which cost about $16. Now the printer won't print black at all.
Summary: I used this printer a few times after getting it, and it seemed OK. The quality was nice for what you pay, but there's something seriously wrong with the ink cartridges. A few weeks after getting the printer, I decided to print a few more pages. No such luck.
Summary: this printer is just a big headache. First problem: the printer won't work unless all ink cartridges have ink in them!! So if you use up, lets say, the magenta ink you can't print using the other ink tanks unless you replace the magenta ink.
Summary: We have had our Pixma IP4300 for just under a year now. For the first 3 months or so everything worked great. Then we started to get error messages related to a problem with the ink tanks. Specifically the cyan ink tank. We are now on our third replacement tank and the error has just popped again.
Summary: I bought this, within a month the print head went out. Canon replaced it. Now, I have had it over a year, and it has stopped working. It says:Document printing cannot be executed because the paper output tray is closed. But the paper output tray is open.
Summary: History: I am very happy with my previous Canon S750 inkjet printer. Specifically, Canon inkjet has been one of the most easy-to-refill printer. The inkhead is wearing out under 3 years heavy use. So, I bought the IP4300 to replace the S750.
Summary: The title says it all. This is a magnificent budget printer. I bought this with my macbook black and expected a little cheapy 100 dollar printer. Instead i received a wonderful little printer that could.
