Summary: I have had this printer for a couple of months and it prints pictures great and text just as one would expect, also great. I would recommend this printer for its great picture printing and the fact that it uses individual ink tanks instead of one for color and one for black.
Summary: My new Canon iP4500 printer works great -- with the Canon software that accompanies their product. It fails miserably, however, with my Photoshop CS2 software. My third print with the Canon iP4500 displayed a series of parallel lines across the surface.
Summary: This is my second Canon printer and is a replacement for my 5 year old i960 which I absolutely loved. The print head started to go and I do a lot of fine detail printing so I had to replace it.
Summary: First, the negatives: this printer takes up a lot of desk space. With the front paper tray extended, its about 23" front to back. The front paper tray seems to be a flimsy plastic. Don't know how it would face up to a sideways blow.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace a Canon I860 after 4 years the print head started to go bad. I was torn between the IP4500 and the MP610. I decided against the MP610 because I already have a second printer, which is multifunction printer.
Summary: Canon labels the Pixma iP4500 as a premium photo and document printer, and when I bought it in early January my main purchasing criteria was high quality photo prints and the ability to print on DVDs and CDs. The printer itself looks tremendously stylish.
Summary: I've always been an epson printer fan until my Epson c84 clogged it's print head, thus ruining the printer. (I know there are ways to take the printer apart and clean out the nozzles, but who has the time for that?)I like the fact that I can replace the print heads on this canon printer.
Summary: I ordered this printer after researching printers using Consumer Reports...Although they did not review this model,(perhaps it was too new)I found that they really liked a previous model,that I could no longer get (naturally).
For basic day-to-day printing the iP4500 does the job, but professionals should look elsewhere.

Excerpt: In a market oozing at the gills with choice it's often a daunting task to find the printer which best serves your needs, and having had very little/practically no experience with printers prior to my purchase I decided to go with the consensus; I opted for the device which had the best reviews in...
