Summary: I had this printer for a year and a half and while yes it did drink ink, it produced high quality prints...BUT, this morning it would not turn on. I tried everything plug, unplug, use different outlets, unplug, plug, downloaded new drivers, then I called customer support for Canon.
Summary: I have had this printer for 2 years. The print quality is fine. The problem is that it uses a lot of ink. I really just wanted a reliable printer but I only print black and white, but each time it prints, it runs a cleaning procedure that actually removes a small amount of ink from each cartridge,...
Summary: Save your money. This product stinks. Using the 2-sided feature, you waste several sheets of paper before you can get your 2-sided print. It's extremely slow. It breaks down all of the time. I've tried giving this printer away, and no one will take it.
Summary: Is it technologically possible to make a printer that doesn't run out of ink so quickly, with such high cartridge replacement costs? Why can't black and white text be printed without using the color cartridges? Is the industry even trying to make better printers? This printer is very irritating.
If You Print Address Labels, You Can Forget this Printer

Summary: I have to send an order out like RIGHT NOW. I've been messing around with the software settings for the last 20 minutes trying to get address labels to load from the top/back tray. In older Pixma's there were control buttons to switch the paper source, now not.
Summary: It may be defective and it has never worked. The error codes indicated some possibility it could be easily solved at first but eventually turned into vague statements of malfunctions that could only be cured by taking the printer to a service center.
Summary: This POS Canon iP4600 has seriously disabused me of buying a Canon printer again. If I ever do it's because I've found one that can be used as printer not some insanely composed dye-sublimation wannabe!
Summary: Canon have outdone themselves in diservice to their customers here. I have been a loyal fan for some years but after my i860 died I replaced it with the ip4600. I have only had it a couple of weeks and the ink has almost run out. The ink tanks are sooooo small.
Summary: I need to print envelopes and as yet have been unable to do it. I followed the online manual and made sure the crease was like they advised. After a hour and half I gave up, this is now worthless to me as a printer, wasted my money.
Summary: I owned the ip3000 and was very happy with it. The 4600 on the other hand I find to be a terribly defective product. Key failures of this product: 1. An excessive long time before printing the first page (also slow on/off) 2. Severe problems with "intelligently" selecting the paper source 3.
