Ink Monster

T. Ross, Amazon
23 February 2011
  • Summary: I've owned this printer for two years now and I regret ever buying it. I bought it to replace the Canon Pixma 4000 that I LOVED. (At this point, I'd like to have another 4000 and toss the 4600 onto the street and run over it with a car.) It works pretty much the same as the 4000, except for one huge difference. The ink cartridges have been greatly reduced.

Uses ink even when you don't print!

S. Paquin, Amazon

  • Summary: The Canon IP4600 uses a ridiculous amount of ink. We needed a printer mostly to print black on white documents, but our color ink cartridges go empty even if we don't print photos or colors. I have never seen a printer drink so much ink in so little time. The printer will also refuse to print once one of the color cartridge is empty, even if you need to print something black.

Waste of my money

Rainbow Nonna, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer so that I could print out pictures of my family. Especially those of my grandson who has moved across country. I also needed to print out some documents, well by the time I printed the documents the ink was used up and there went the option of printing pictures. The ink cartridges for this model are way too expensive. Also, it takes for ever for this printer to initialize.

Cartridges are 27% smaller but cost same as old, larger tanks

Cool Air, Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: I had the Canon Pixma iP4200 -- worked fine until the print heads failed and regardless of maintenance routines, photos printed with horizontal lines. Canon-branded ink cartridges for the 4200 had been costing me $12 to $14 each for the colors and small black tank. Now, I have the Canon Pixma iP4600 -- also working fine, but............ The ink cartridges hold 27% LESS INK, and you guessed it! They COST THE SAME as the 4200 cartridges!

Huge step backwards from the ip4500

Recluce, Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: I only owned this printer for a couple of days before returning it. While the printer is OK for low volume printing, it will kill you on ink cost if you print a lot. Compared to the older ip4500 model, the ip4600 is a lot SLOWER and uses ink cartridges that are a lot smaller and more expensive. The 221 cartridge contains only about 8 ml of usable ink, compared to about 12 ml usable ink in the older CLI-8 cartridge. Both sell for about the same price per cartridge.

Bonne impression de départ, mais après deux ans!

ragand, Ciao

  • Summary: Je me souviens d'une mise en service facile sous didacticiel, bien automatisée. J'ai apprécié une impression de qualité tant photo que texte, assez rapide. J'ai hélas trop vite été déçu : les cartouches d'encre se vident à la vitesse de l'éclair, y compris les couleurs, même si le pilote MyPrinter est réglé sur "niveaux de gris". C'est que, n'imprimant que 3 ou 4 fois par mois, à chaque mise ne service l'IP4600 part dans un nettoyage (très) consciencieux.
  • Pros: impression de qualité, recto - verso, pas bruyante, logiciel MyPrinter très complet
  • Cons: consommation d'encre trop élevée, brillant carrosserie très fragile

iP 4600 Drucker

lappetrekking, eBay.de
8 June 2010
  • Summary: Der ip 4600 scheint ein "sehr sensibler" Drucker zu sein. Voraussetzungen und Patronen müssen perfekt sein. Greifen häufig deshalb auf einen sehr alten HP 895 C zurück. Patronen 4600 sündhaft teuer.Schon 2. Druckkopf.

Canon Pixma iP4600

Ciao
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Canon Pixma iP4600 ESTA IMPRESORA LA COMPRAMOS EN LA EMPRESA AL MORIRSE LA ANTIGUA HP. EN PRINCIPIO ES UNA IMPRESORA DE LO MAS NORMAL, TIENE DOBLE CARGA DE PAPEL QUE ES UN ROLLO POR QUE NUNCA SABES POR DONDE LO VA A COGER, Y SIEMPRE LO COGE POR DONDE NO TIENES. POR ESO A LA MIA LE ANULE UNA Y SOLO TRABAJO CON CARGAR PAPEL POR ATRAS. LA GRAN DESVENTAJA QUE LE VEO ES COMO EN LA MAYORIAS DE ESTAS IMPRESORAS ES LA DURACION DE LOS CARTUCHOS DE TINTA.
  • Pros: USA CARTUCHOS COMPATIBLES
  • Cons: GASTA MUCHA TINTA

Der Bursche geht mir auf die Nerven

Rudi Gerlach, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: Als ich den Drucker gekauft habe, war ich eigentlich froh, endlich bei Canon gelandet zu sein, wo jede Farbe ihre eigenen Patrone hat usw. usf. Und dann noch die Duplexeinheit. Für jemanden wie mich, der vor allem Text druckt, ist sowas wichtig. Aber deswegen will ich mir keinen energieschluckenden Laserdrucker kaufen. Positiv will ich auch erwähnen, dass man die Patronen nachfüllen kann und dass er einigermaßen (aber nur einigermaßen) unter Linux funktioniert.
