For printing heavy card stock on a limited budget, the iP4700 is AWESOME!

Summary: I'm a beginner author. I have two books that have been published - The Horseless Horsemen: Jude (5 Star Review) and Rita (4 Star review). And I wanted to print bookmarks that were worth being called bookmarks as a marketing device to go with them. So I got some 200lb paper. ...and subsequently found that it wouldn't even begin to go through my Epson WP4020.
Summary: At first this printer was great. 5 stars. Now that I have had it for a few years it is a one star. The color is either too blue ALL blue or today the photos were red. After running dozens of cleans and "by hand" head cleaning. The black STILL has a problem. Will never buy another Canon printer. This one was enough for me.
Summary: I have been using Canon photo printers for almost 10 years doing on-site digital photography and there is nothing like them. Each generation seems to improve on speed and quality. I regularly have 2-3 printers cranking at events and have incredible results. My only complaint is the ink. My last round of Canon printers were the 4300's and although the ink for the 4700 is about $1 cheaper per color, it seems to only be about half the size.
Summary: I purchased the Canon PIXMA iP4700 as a replacement for an old Canon i860 printer that was on its last legs. The PIXMA iP4700 printer is a low-cost printer with a lot of bang for the buck. Text quality is as advertised, very good but not perfect. As for photo printing, I feel that this printer delivers beautifully. Great color blending, crisp detail, and true color reproduction provide exceptional quality photos.
It is a wonderful product so far.I have not had problem

Summary: The ease of hooking it up, how easy it is to operate,and the color I suspect will be wonderful.I have not had it long enough to tell you anymore. My other printer had been used for 7 years and I'm looking for at least that much time with this one.
