For printing heavy card stock on a limited budget, the iP4700 is AWESOME!
1 January 2014
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. ...and subsequently found that it wouldn't even begin to go through my Epson WP4020.
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. It's been a remarkably good printer, considering that I purchased it new from Amazon for less than eighty dollars. My only negative comment is that the iP4700 is an ink hog, but I've never owned an inkjet printer that wasn't.
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. My last round of Canon printers were the 4300's and although the ink for the 4700 is about $1 cheaper per color, it seems to only be about half the size.
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. I wish someone would sell a printer for what it actually costs, with re-fillable ink tanks, and stop selling cartridges. This is extremely wasteful.
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. As for photo printing, I feel that this printer delivers beautifully. Great color blending, crisp detail, and true color reproduction provide exceptional quality photos.
It is a wonderful product so far.I have not had problem

Summary: The ease of hooking it up, how easy it is to operate,and the color I suspect will be wonderful.I have not had it long enough to tell you anymore. My other printer had been used for 7 years and I'm looking for at least that much time with this one.
Summary: I wanted a printer that could produce photo prints of professional quality. This printer certainly does a great job of that! I was a little dubious that such an inexpensive printer could do that good of a job, but the results I got changed my mind about the relationship between cost and quality. In addition, I was unhappy with the printer I use when I work from home as I often want duplex printing to save paper and ink.
Summary: I bought this copier mainly for printing pictures. My last canon bit the dust after 7 years. This new printer prints excellent quality pictures. I am very happy with it. I have aan all in one canon that I use for black and white printing, copyong and faxing. I have use the IP4700 for printing some documents and they came out excellent and the speed was pretty quick.
Summary: This is my 4th Canon mfg. printer. I have had various models and a couple other brands and nothing compares to Canon when used as a home photo printer. Excellent quality with origninal inks and cartridges------thats the problem. The Pixma iP4700 has very small cartridges and they are "chipped" to measure ink used. The capacity of the cartridges looks about half the size of previous models. They are also very expensive for the Canon OEM replacements.
