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.
Summary: THis is ok printer as long as you don't want to print photos. The ease of use is great, no problems with paper feed or being able to adjust settings. It prints fairly quick with decent quality unless you want photos. Every photo printed on this printer has a purplish hue. I have tried many different variations of settings, adjusted setting on my CPU and on my photo editing software, contacted customer support and nothing has corrected the problem with the color.
Summary: This is a great printer but it amazes me that the IP4500 doesn't come with the CD Caddy in the USA. I own an (Australian)Canon IP5200, which is the same as the IP4500, but it came with the CD caddy and program to print onto CD/DVD's. But all was not lost, for an extra $24 on ebay you can buy the caddy and see a video on line on how to activate the CD/DVD printing funtion of this unit.
Summary: Nice printer, but this was a replacement for my HP Photosmart. The photosmart was very old, but still did a great job until recently. I thought from the reviews that this printer would do a nice job of replacing the HP. So far the printing quality is not near as good as the HP. One of the review stated this printer did cd disk printing, thats one of the reasons I got it.
Summary: So for para trabalhar com cartuchos originais, 100% de indicação. Se for bulk, um pouco complicado, da varios problemas nos cartuchos e ntope com facilidade com as tintas do mercado. Com Caruchos originais, esta é a Impressora.
Pros: Excelente qualidade e velocidade superior a R290 da epsson e 3 vezes para impressão de Cd.
Cons: Se for usar tintas não originais, procure de otima qualidade pois do contrario entope a cabeça de impressão
Summary: Nachdem mein zweiter Canon 4500 Drucker den Geist aufgegeben hat, bin ich am überlegen, welches Fabrikat ich als nächstes kaufe. Zwei Druckköpfe, die gerade nach Ablauf der Garantiezeit, nicht mehr funktionieren,ist doch schon ärgerlich. Noch schlimmer war die Reaktion bei Canon. Denen schickte ich meine 2 defekten Druckköpfe, und eine Woche später kam das Päckchen zurück und ich musste dafür 16 Euro bezahlen.
