$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: 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.
Summary: The Canon Pixma iP4300 Photo Printer is as good as it gets. I've had this printer for about a month and absolutely love it!! The ip4300 replaces a 6 year old Epson EX750 which was okay but not nearly as good as the Canon.
Summary: The PIXMA iP4300 is an excellent DVD printer, giving sharp colors and good contrast. For reason's I cannot imagine this feature is disabled on printers sold in the USA. For about $25 on eBay you can find a caddy for holding the printable DVD and instructions how to update the printer's firmware...
Summary: I was so sick and tired of the consistently-poor performance that I had gotten out of my long line of HPs, that I had nearly given up on the idea of printing photos from home. Then I found the Canon Pixma IP 4300.
Summary: This printer is BIG but very light in weight and it rolls out your prints quickly and velvety. Like all Canon printers that I have had, the iP4300 needs to be programmed manually. This is easy to do, but if you run on automatic your printed images will be badly over-exposed.
Summary: I have always gone with Epson printers in the past because I felt the printouts were superior. This time I decided to go with Canon because I love my Canon cameras and the ip4300 got very high ratings. When I compared ink costs the decision was made.
Summary: You searched diligently to find the right camera at the right price to capture those precious moments and exploit those eye-pleasing scenes. But once those amazing snapshots were taken, you needed a printer just as superb to make the photos worth their megapixels.
Summary: It is nearly enough to comment that this printer was the Editor's Choice with PC Magazine and as I have trusted them through the years they have not let me down. I have two of these printers, one at home and the other is the mainstay printer in a busy Veterinarian Office.
Summary: I've worked my way up from technician to network administrator in a school system and I've worked with all type printers from large networked printers to small local desktop printers, so when I say "WOW!" about a printer, I am impressed.
