"Very Good one"

  • Pros: Do right all needed to basic print.
  • Cons: Should find an alternative compatible chiped cartridge supplier to survive with printing cost. CISS works at start but puts at risk the Printing Head nerves.

"After 1 yr, an overall bad experience."

  • Pros: Printed text well, when it printed.
  • Cons: Using this printer with Canon photo paper and ink, photos were not sharp or clear. When printing (grey-scale) printer still used color ink. 3 melt downs requiring a reload from the set-up disc.

Won't print in black and white if color ink is out

LT Sharpe, Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: Disaster as a point of sale printer since if say the yellow is out you can't continue to print your invoices! Doesn't matter if you select grayscale in the properties. It will refuse to print period... Cruel joke of a printer.

Nice printer, hate the ink issue

Michael J. Frederick, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Like many on here I purchased this based on reviews and previous experiences with Canon. I'm beginning to regret it as the constant replacing of ink cartridges is getting to be a real pain. As others have pointed out, when one color runs out there is no way of printing in black and white. You either have all the cartridges functional or the thing will not print, in essence making it a really expensive paperweight until you get some more ink.

"Excellent overall printer that just keeps going."

wibbie, CNET
8 March 2011
  • Pros: Fantastic quality prints. Reasonably fast, even for full colour, full page photo prints. Nice that you can choose a back tray and bottom tray. Ink cartridges are simple to change. Ink lasts for quite awhile compared to other printers I've had.
  • Cons: I'm only wishing it had a scanner. Haven't found anything else that I don't like.

Classic, high quality printer for refillers

broncomaniac6, Ebay
19 November 2010
  • Summary: The iP4500 produces very high quality printing and photos. It was one of the easiest systems to refill ever produced. It is MANDATORY to use high quality inks and understand that you cannot refill a cartridge indefinitely. Chip resetters are available and reasonable on eBay. Not all aftermarket cartridges are as easy to refill and reset as the Canon products. The price of this printer has climbed, since Canon stopped production.

"Thank god I got this for free."

determinada, CNET
14 November 2010
  • Pros: This came for free when I bought my MacBook, that's about all I can say for it.
  • Cons: It will not print AT ALL if one of the ink cartridges is empty. Not even B&W. Can't manipulate printer settings to ONLY print in B&W so color ink is needlessly wasted.

"starts great, ends quickly!"

sodaphine, CNET
2 March 2010
  • Pros: prints beautiful sharp vivid images great for printing on discs looks sleek and sharp easy to navigate and set up
  • Cons: becomes redundant very quickly more expensive to fix than to replace (totally environmentally unsustainable) ink cartridges run out extremely fast and are extremly costly to replace printer requests replacement cartridges when still have lots of ink
