Summary: This is an excellent Printer that works great for Card Stock. We bought it used and could not be happier. The ink cartridges are very reasonable in price ($15) and it has already paid for itself in Ink costs as my old HP cartridges used to cost over $40 at costco and they did not last any longer...
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: I bought this printer because my former printer stopped working and was the exact same printer as this one. Although this printer was used, the seller told me that it worked fine the last time it was used.
Summary: The Canon Pixma iO4500 works better then a lot of printers that I have had in the past. It is a little hard on ink, it uses it faster then some of the other rating say. I wish the ink tanks were a bit larger then they are.
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: I expected this printer to last a lot longer than it did, and, as others have noted, you cannot print in black and white if any of the color cartridges are out of ink. The quality of the printing was just so-so. I won't buy another product from Canon.
