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: 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: Can't say enough about this little printer - it is absolutely amazing! It is hard to believe the quality of the pictures I have printed. I recently scanned a magazine cover that stars our football running back grandson and the printed photo is better that the actual magazine cover.
Pros: Great quality for the price. This printer was for my wife's scrapbooking. I couldn't have asked for better. I have no use for a photo printer...I'm a BW laser guy (the faster; the better). Easy to use, bloated software appeals to my wife, readily available ink.
Cons: It's a bit big, but it has a nice shiny black look to it.
Summary: I was a little cautious at first when I looked at this Canon printer. Everywhere I looked for advice, there was always somebody saying something negative about it, but let's be honest, anywhere you look for advice, there are always two sides of the story.
Pros: I'm not a printer geek and I dont really care about specs, all I know if that this printer does a great job. The clarity of the print jobs is equal to what you would get if you printed them at CVS.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace my Canon i450 which didn't support a 64-bit OS. This printer is quieter than my old i450. The two paper trays are lovely and the fact that I can close the front when not in use keeps the dust from the desert from getting into the printer.
Pros: Quiet, Easy Set-up, Two paper trays, Closable for dust prevention. If you are looking for an all-around printer that gives you both good paper and picture copies, definitely get this one.
Cons: Not really a con but the included driver disk didn't include drivers for Win XP Pro 64-bit OS but they were easy to find on the Canon Website.
Pros: Fast,quiet as compared to the old printer, very easy and fast to set up with the enclosed cd. Like the dual sheet feeder for different paper types. I will stick with Canon printers if this one continues to perform so well.
Summary: To get a quality photo printer that also has built in auto duplex is a great find. This printer replaces a Canon i550 which I had for years and worked well for me. I'm glad I now have the ip4700. It's much quieter and faster than the old i550.
Pros: Low price, quiet, excellent photo printing at a decent speed, separate color ink tanks, auto duplex document printing, cassette paper tray (keeps out dust). Printer completely closes up when not in use.
Cons: As with most cheap printers, no usb cable included. Glossy finish is pretty, but a fingerprint magnet.
