Summary: I had the first one for several years until the power supply gave out. I took the printer in repair shop for estimate. I thought the estimate was on high side so I tried eBay and found new same printer for less price than the estimate. Wanting the same printer is due to a large supply of ink cartridges. The printer I bought was disconnected but was on a shelf, new. Thus I got a brand new printer. I am happy with this one.
Summary: The Pixma iP4300 is reliable, easy to use, and has a number of features that work perfectly with my iMac. This unit has actually retained its value. My favorite features: - Accepts third-party ink replacements - great if you don't want to blow your budget on OEM ink. Most replacements have printer chips already installed.
Summary: Although this printer has been discontinued, I recently bought one and am very pleased with the results. The biggest feature I like is the five separate ink cartridges, so you don't have to replace a cartridge with cyan ink because the magenta ink in the same cartridge ran out. I also like the on-screen status and the LED's in the printhead to warn of low ink.
Summary: Canon ip4355/4500. I bought a Canon iP4300 about four years ago based on reviews that were very good. I wanted something that would do a good job of printing photos as well as text, and the iP4300 was very good. Since we have four computers in the house, I wanted to standardize on one printer and ink supply, and I decided to go with the iP4300/4500. The iP4300 worked perfectly, with no problems at all. I eventually got an iP4500 and gave 4300 to my son.
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. Value: At the time of purchase, there was a $20 instant rebate from Canon which Amazon then sold for $79.99 plus free shipping (over $25). I ordered two printers, one for myself and one for my daughter). The printer comes with a retail ink value of $74.
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. With its 9600 X 2400 resolution and its 3584 nozzles, I am getting near-photo lab prints every time. I love Canon! I love this printer!
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. With adjustments the printer will produce excellent quality images on just plain paper. Here are the settings I use for just plain paper. The printed page is rich in color, and is in sharp focus.
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. I have read that the Canon also uses less ink than the competing Epson but I'm not in a position to judge that. I brought my printer home yesterday and I couldn't be happier.
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. I have always stuck with Canon for my camera, and because of this iP4300 I now stick with them for my printer.
