ok printer

wmr, Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: The printer is good enough. It seems to run through ink pretty fast. My brother bought another printer with more options for less money. I think in retrospect I would buy another.

BEWARE OF WARRANTY!!!

Linlou, Amazon
23 July 2010
  • 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.

Great Print but small Cartridges

Eddie the "C", Amazon
23 July 2010
  • Summary: This is a Great Printer. But after using it for a awhile the only thing that Dissapoints me is the Small Ink Cartridges. How can I illustrate this for You? Imagine The Lone Ranger or Zorro riding to do their Heroric Deeds Mounted on a Shetland Pony or a Burro at Best. See what I mean.

Fails on Tiger and Leopard for Mac sometimes (see update)

postmodern, Amazon
6 July 2010
  • Summary: Canon wouldn't print my review because it points out some serious failings. When it works, this printer is great. Ink is pricey but that's to be expected. Printer works well under Panther 10.3.9 but fails completely under Tiger 10.4.11.

Stripped down version sold in the USA

Waterbouquet, Amazon
6 July 2010
  • Summary: Canon's successor to its popular iP4600 has received glowing reviews, but unlike the European and Australian versions, the USA model of the iP4700 does not offer CD/DVD printing capability. 'Sup with that, Canon???!

A mixed bag

Anonymous, Newegg
24 May 2010
  • Summary: This may be a good printer for photo printing, but I've got an Epson 1400, which is great for that. I simply wanted a replacement for my ip3000 to print documents, and this does not fill the need.
  • Pros: Excellent Print Quality, low price, separate ink tanks, Auto-duplex printing. However would have given this printer only a 1 or 2 star if not for the print quality, because of the negatives. I've used the Canon ip560 and ip3000 previously for document printing. Print quality was ok for my needs, ...
  • Cons: 1) Cannot adjust print quality on plain paper While the "Print Quality" settings are visible, they cannot be adjusted, so you waste ink on what you'd only want to print in a draft mode. 2) plain paper feed from small, cumbersome cassette, envelope printing only from rear feed. The rear tray holds...

Decent, low-cost printer, photos don't pop though

Michelle, Amazon
24 April 2010
  • Summary: I switched to this from an older Epson because I didn't use the Epson enough, so had to clean the ink cartridges on it every single time almost that I printed which resulted in a lot of wasted ink.

A Change of Opinion 8 Months Later. Originally, a Beautiful High Resolution Photographics, Eats Ink, But a Great Step Up

Ethan Winning, Amazon
24 April 2010
  • Summary: Aug. 2010, 8 months later: I've had to change my opinion of this printer. It still puts out the best photos I've seen from any inkjet printer, and I've had my share. The colors are true and vivid. However, to get true and vivid, you can go broke on the ink.

Bad Luck?

Carol N., Newegg
1 December 2009
  • Summary: Make sure you test these so you don't get stuck with one of the bad ones! I have deployed a ton of the 4600 series and had great luck.
  • Pros: Very similar to the ip4600. Great print quality, fast print speed. Overall a decent, inexpensive photo printer.
  • Cons: Bought two of these and one came defective. The bad one cut off the end of each print.
