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: With so many reviews here already I will keep it short and will limited myself to the main points that I see when it comes to this printer (which for me replaced a 6-yr. old ): PROS: * Fast printing.
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.

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.
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???!
Summary: I upgraded from a Canon Pixma ip4200 after the heads on that one had worn out. I had been using it for about three years to print mainly a monthly 8/10 page newsletter of mixed images and text. It had worked well but the image quality had deteriorated some time ago, with banding visible.
Summary: As an editor of a local rugby club's match programme (100 copies per week, 20 pages per issue), I need a relatively high quality product in reproduction terms, printing at reasonable speed and offering good value for money in relation to ink cartridge cost.

4 October 2010
Excerpt: Vorteile: Phantastische Druckergebnisse, besonders im Foto und Grafikbereich Wie sich die Einstellung zu einer Firma bzw ihren Produkten ändern kann. Nach 4 Tagen wurde mir lapidar am Telefon mitgeteilt, wie glücklich ich doch sein könne, ich bekäme jetzt DEN NEUEN IP4700 im Austausch.
Pros: HERVORRAGENDE DRUCKERGEBNISSE
Cons: Miserable Bearbeitung wenn es Probleme gibt .
