Summary: Too bad this printer is out of production; we have relied on this for everything! So, when the old one died after many years of use we had to find another ('cause we found Canon ink cartridges at 80% off and we have over 40 cartridges).
Summary: I purchased the ip4600 from amazon.com in July, 2009. It has continually worked great. I can print photos on matte photo paper(my preference) with the regular ink. I always buy Canon Printers because their color is the best and they have longevity.
Summary: I purchased the printer for one reason only. I retired as a professional photographer 7 years ago. Sold all my equipment and did not touch a camera 'til 2 months ago. Decided to get back on the horse for my own pleasure. After my digital camera this is the best photo purchase I have made.
Summary: An excellent printer unfortunately endowed with the sleaziness common to printer manufacturers and razor makers. Changing the cartridges for no reason that I can see. I had a fairly extensive selection of spare inks which are now of no use as the new cartridges are physically smaller.
Summary: I bought this from Amazon a few months ago and I must say that the photo quality is perfect. My pictures print out better then if I take them to a store to be printed. Very happy with this product.
Summary: This printer was purchased to replace my Epson Stylus C86 which died. I needed something in a hurry and Amazon was offering $20 off and free shipping so I took a chance. Originally, shipping was to be in 7 days. I was delighted when it arrived on my doorstep 48 hours after I placed my order.
Summary: If you want a printer that produces high quality photos, including black and white photos, then this is the printer to get. It's user friendly to install and to use. It prints photos fast (less than 20 seconds), but it take a shorter time (average of 10 seconds) preparing to print the photo.
Summary: My old Canon Printer had failed, and I needed a replacement. I did not need an all-in-one printer as I already had a good Canon Scanner. I also did not need a wireless printer as I had just one desktop computer, and did not want to invest the money in a wireless system at this time.
Summary: Just search eBay for the buy that sells the adapters so your printer can print disks. It is cheap & VERY EASY. Also take a look at inkjethelper dot com (you get the idea) Google it if nothing else. They explain everything & are very helpful.
