Summary: Canon has discontinued the back feed printer (or in this case feed from above) option. The new ones have small plastic drawers in the front only. Thankfully I was able to buy this one new at double the normal price. It is for a business and I needed the top feeder ability.
Summary: First of all, a note about the way I use this printer: I use it for general purpose printing. I have never used it for photo printing, so I cannot comment on this capability. Give my past experience with small inkjet printers - they all seem to fail after two or three years - I have come to consider...

Summary: I bought two of the 4500s in 2006 or 2007. I have been using one of them as my everyday workhorse. I replaced the printhead recently (March 2013). I bought these printers through the Canon store for around 100.00, maybe 99.00. It was cheap.
Summary: This printer at first had "the goods", it was quite fast, printed excellent photos, printed off my band cds with ease and high quality documents. Sure it used ink slightly faster than I would have liked and it also didn't let me print black and white if one of the colour cartridges was out (and no,...
Summary: It's too bad that Canon doesn't make this printer any more. The color match with my monitor is great. It is easy on ink, too. I print a lot of photos and have been surprised at the quality and that I don't have to replace the ink cartridges often.
Summary: Very reliable, trouble-free on my Mac Pro system. After some bad experiences with third-party cartridges and Epson printers, I changed brands and learned to stick with genuine brand ink. Third-party inks tend to clog print heads, and the design of Epson inkjet printers is highly prone to clogging.
Canon printers would be great if they were reliable

Summary: I bought this printer a few years ago to replace a more expensive Canon printer that had given up the ghost. (That first Canon, which set me back $400 and used 8 ink cartridges, printed *gorgeous* photographs -- which is why I bought it -- for a little over 3 years, when its warranty ran out and I...
Won't print in black and white if color ink is out

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.
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.
