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: This is a great printer that I've been using lightly for over 2 years. Printing speed is pretty good and I like the auto on and off feature. CD/DVD printing is really nice too. Photo paper prints are also very good. I did not give five stars because of one annoyance.
Summary: The iP4300 printer was easy to setup and performs as advertised. The only downside so far for me is the cost of replacement ink cartridges. I bought one full set of Canon cartridges for this printer at Best Buy and paid almost half of the original cost of the printer.
Summary: I recently purchased this printer to use or documents as well as photos. The performance is outstanding! Photos print at an amazing speed with near photo lab quality. But it DOES guzzle ink and replacements are somewhat pricey.
Summary: My 1st Canon printer was a iP6700D. Shortly, an HP 8250xi came on sale for $89, which I also bought. The HP has truer colors and not as much vivid colors as the Canon. I sold the iP6700D. The Canon photo printing program is the best I have seen. I missed it.
Summary: When the printer is used often (daily at least) the prints are very good. If the printer is left off for even a couple of days, what should be a red color begins as sort of a rust color. On another site I saw a similar comment for this printer. After some usage the red improves.
Summary: This photo printer is unbelievably fast! I was used to my deskjet printer speed, but man...Literally a 5 second color photo print with photo quality. No picture preview LCD, but the two input trays allow me to keep a pile of 4x6 paper below and standard 8 1/2 x 11 above.
Summary: Things that are GOOD, for me: -2 feed options, I can load up the bottom tray with plain paper AND feed cardstock/matte photo paper in the top with out any real effort. -Duplexing, it will print double sided with a click of an option -individual color carts, granted they are a little small but there...
Summary: Brochure printing is relatively fast. Print quality is good. Ink cost is relatively high. You pay extra for the ink cartridge to have a light in it........ and whenthe printer decides that the ink is low, it stops printing. period. You CANNOT print until the ink runs out.
Summary: The iP4300 replace my Canon i950. The i950 was very good but the print head continuously clogged requiring numerous deep cleanings (and corresponding reductions in ink). Like the dual feeds, bottom used for regular paper and top for ilford photo paper. Nice to have the auto duplex printing.
