Awesome printer

  • 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.

Great everyday printer

G. Carter, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • 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 them disposable. Given the way I use my printer, I choose the printer brand based on whether it supports generic print cartridges.

This WAS a great printer..........but the Pro9000 mkII is cheaper!!!

P. A. Feher "eccentric", Amazon

  • 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. I print photo cards- sometimes as many as 100 a day and this printer has never failed and it's good on ink so prints are cheap to make. I've used cheaper non OEM ink that is a fraction of the Canon ink with no ill effects at all-ever.

Superb printer

Douglas Millhoff, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

The last of Canon's legacy printers

Gary Kitchen, Amazon
12 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this printer to replace a previous Canon model which had been serving me faithfully for the past 3 years, then developed a fatal fault and refused to function further. My primary print jobs are basic everyday documents, the occasional photo on glossy paper (always beautiful and FAST)and, most important of all, printable DVDs. I used a 3rd-party print tray and online instructions to enable the hidden feature within older Canon Pixma models.

Best printer I've owned.

  • Summary: I think I've had just about every brand of printer ever made dating back to the late '80's. I've been using this one for almost a year and it tops them all in quality, ink economy, speed, flexibility, quietness, and intelligent hardware/software design. It knows how to turn itself on and off as needed and it pinpoints exactly what problems may exist even down to dumb user blunders like having something partially blocking the paper tray.

Best bang for the buck....

Theo "Fumbling my way to ecstasy", Amazon
20 November 2008
  • Summary: My last printer was a Canon i960, which I thought at the time was the last word in performance for around $100, and it truly was. It had 6 ink cartridges, and a miniscule 2 picolitre droplet size -- and rendered the best and fastest photos I'd ever printed (4x6 in 34 seconds). But I made the mistake of buying cheaper ink replacement cartridges, and not using the printer regularly.

Canon Pixma iP4500 is excellent printer

Dave K., Amazon
24 October 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Canon Pixma iP4500 inkjet printer to replace an old Canon i850 color inkjet printer. The old printer worked great for a few years, then stopped working properly even though I used only Canon ink cartridges. So far the iP4500 seems to print text and photos very well - actually better than the old printer. I am hoping it lasts longer than the i850. The ink cartridges are very easy to change.
