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 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: 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)

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.
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: 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...
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

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.
