  • Summary: This is the second Canon printer in 3 years, this one has now gone out and I will never buy Canon again. I currently have a Lexmark with a 5 year warranty on order.

Wow, Why Does this Get Good Reviews?

Julee D Pearson, Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this printer about a month ago to replace a 7-yr old HP photo printer. I wish I hadn't already donated my old printer. I would prefer to throw this in the trash and have my old printer back.

This is one frustrating printer

Dave H, Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: After years of having my Cannon IP 4200, it finally bit the dust. So I bought this Cannon ip 4820. It does give great quality photos when it prints. Half the time, it keeps saying it's out of paper because it's trying to pull paper from the bottom cassett and says I have it set on automatic when...

Worst printer ever

Robert A. Hansen, Amazon
11 September 2011
  • Summary: This is the worst printer I have ever owned. This thing can sit here buzzing whirring and making all kinds of noises and can sit here up to 5 minutes making one black & white printed page.

loved it, until I needed more ink - it's a rip off

Sue Sherwood, Amazon
9 March 2011
  • Summary: Lovely print, I especially like the duplex feature - saves paper. But to replace the ink cartridges costs more than I paid for the printer. Cannot afford it, plus the cartridges are very small, do not contain much ink.

A PIECE OF JUNK IN MY OPINION!

d0740, Amazon
25 February 2011
  • Summary: This printer is not for the very occasional user--perhaps good for those who are constantly printing. It has too much activity/running as though it's getting ready to print even though you have not entered anything for printing, and when you do actually print, it takes too long to print the page.

Easy to use if you like red photos

MLS, Amazon
12 January 2011
  • Summary: A little bit of a chore to install but not too bad. I liked being able to load photo paper in the rear feed and plain paper in the lower tray. It sometimes took a while to be ready to print after power on but then it did print FAST even with high resolution photo prints. Now the bad part....

Canon print heads clog and fail

Barry A. Hudson "Bari", Amazon
4 September 2010
  • Summary: This is my third Canon Ink jet printer. All three have failed inside one year with clogged and failed print heads. While the ink looks relatively cheap, if you don't print every day, then the print head drys out and clogs permananty. The new print head costs almost as much as this new printer!

Canon Fails on ink chips / ink cost

James P.S., Amazon
4 September 2010
  • Summary: Canon replaced the ip4700 with the ip4820. It is virtually the same printer but with different ink chips. You cannot buy generic inks (as of 1-18-11) for your ip4820 as you could the ip4700. I own about 200 canon printers and 200 canon cameras.
