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. ..
Summary: My Canon PIXMA iP4700 inkjet printer has had heavy use for more than three years, with no problems. I use it mainly for printing text, but for the occasional photo printing, it does a creditable job.
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.
Failed after just a few months. "Disposable printer"

Summary: What is it with these ink jet printers? I have purchased no fewer than 10 (HP, Epson, Canon) in the past few years and they ALWAYS fail after a while, just like this one did today. Either they will stop recognizing the ink cartridge or simple refuse to print (like in this case).
Summary: I purchased this printer for printing photos, greeting cards, note cards and general printing. I've owned nothing but Canon printers for, gee, it must be almost 10 years. In that time I can say the print quality has been great, ink consumption reasonable but they don't make the best print heads.
Summary: Good quality printer. Great deal for the price. Slow but ok for printing photos and light print jobs at home. Not recommended for an office. Setup was mostly easy but could have been easier. Easy to use but occassionally will print as though the paper shifted while printing. But this is rare.
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.
Summary: upgrading from the Pixma 3000, this is more printer than I need, but it works well. I don't need the 5th ink tank, and don't need digital lights on the ink tanks ( are they kidding? ), and each ink tank is smaller, and of course more expensive.
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.
