A Casual Printer's Observation

S. Schmidt, Amazon
6 September 2011
  • Summary: It has now been nearly one year since I bought this printer; what a great time to now write a review! Easy setup; no hassles. Image Software from Canon is OK, but not great. However the printer drivers are better. Relatively simple printer management (ie. settings). This printer is pretty fast, printing a full rez image in about a minute (I didn't time it, but a minute is pretty close). I am printing from full camera rez images at 12 megapixels, too.

A tip for users

  • Summary: I previously owned another Canon printer...same price range. The ink cartridges seemed bigger. That makes sense as that is where Canon makes the bucks,(selling ink not printers) thus smaller amounts of ink in cartridges. (at least in this case). Here is a tip though: When your printer tells your computer to tell you that your ink has run out...just hit the reset button on the printer. You will get a lot more printing out of that cartridge!!

Pretty nice, mostly.

  • Summary: Okay, I've owned this printer for six months, time to review: After years and years of printing with an HP812C, whew! It was a pretty nice printer in its time, reliable and all that, but the speed and and print quality of a modern inkjet like this one is refreshing. I'm very satisfied with speed and quality. Even photos print very well--not quite store quality, but really very nice. As is true of many (most?) inkjets, all annoyances are based on the ink itself.

Canon 4820

  • Summary: I am an advanced novice. Setup was a snap. If you can read and follow the easy steps a novice will not have any problems installing this printer. The quality of the B/W print is excellent and the color print is perfect. Better than in my prior Canon printer and much sharper than other printers I have seen. To my eye the color print is professional quality. If I have many color photo's to print I send the files to Costco to save on printing cost.

Canon Ip4820 Inkjet printer.

James R. McCoy "VITAMINGIANT", Amazon
8 March 2011
  • Summary: Just replaced an HP printer that gave me nothing but fits with this nifty economical Canon printer. My only beef is that the printed instructions show stuff that is not part of this printer. Software was easy to load and worked first time. If you don't want the very best professional photos this one works fine and costs so much less.

decent printer, but difficult for linux

  • Summary: Word of warning for those running linux. I'm on Ubuntu 10.10 and am having trouble getting this to work. I'm currently working on the ubuntu forums to find a solution. i'll update this review if i get it to work. UPDATE: you can get linux drivers off of the canon europe website. . . also of note,it requires a USB cable, type-A to type-B that IS NOT INCLUDED.

Nice, simple and black

California Girl, Amazon

  • Summary: I like everything except the price of the ink. I will only use Canon ink as I have had trouble in the past using "compatible" inks. The print quality is good...but, again...the ink is expensive. At least the tanks are separate so you don't have to throw out a whole cartridge if one color runs out.

Canon Pixma iP4820 review

Vincyman "Vincyman", Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: I needed a simple printer without the "bells and whistles" so I bought this for only $79.00 from Adorama Camera Inc as a replacement for my Canon iP4000 that went on the blink after 5 yrs of good service. So far I am quite pleased with its performance. It has a much better human interface than my old printer and printing is exceptional. However, it is slower than the iP4000 and not as quiet.
