Summary: I have used this for both everyday office printing and for test prints of photos. The quality is surprisingly good for this price range. Have not had any problems with it. I do buy generic cartridges for the ink and they seem to work fine. No clogs, no excessive need to clean the heads, etc.
Summary: Not unlike most everything, if you pay less, you're going to get less. However, the things skimped on in this printer hardly take away from it's great value. Pros: First, for me, I have absolutely no use for a scanner/copier so the fact that this printer doesn't have one is a bonus for me.
Summary: The Canon IP 4600 printer arrived promptly in excellent condition. I had to assemble a bunch of parts including the ink jets and 5 ink cartridges. This took considerable time to get it all together. I used the USB cable from my old Epson printer, otherwise I would had to purchase a cable.
Summary: I replaced a Canon PIXMA ip3000 with this printer. It works almost exactly the same as the old printer with one exception. Canon decided to place a chip on each ink tank to prevent refilling the ink tanks. I'm very dissatisfied with this step that many manufacturers have taken. But I understand why.
Summary: I purchased this printer to replace a Canon PIXMA IP5000 which had some print head issues after 5 years. It was inexpensive compared to a new IP5000. The box does not include a printer cable but set up and installation was automatic and easy.
Summary: This is my second Canon Pixma. I use a lot of graphics and photos to create colorful and exciting scrapbook pages, greetings cards, tags, and flyers. I use several graphics programs to devise sample designs for making beautiful glass lamps and shades.
