Summary: Ok for most things, but has a print overrun setting or something and after about 8 months of heavy usage it simply indicated a fault. Ink tray full or some such. Perhaps ok for home limited use.
Summary: If you are an occasionnal user like me this moddel is not for you after only eighteen months some of the colours have stopped working, aparently blocked and no ammount of maintenance would clear it
Summary: Fabulous printer. Easy to use and set up. prints directly to cd/dvd and colours all spot on. I would reccommend this printer to anyone. I have always preferred Canon printers and they just get better and better.
Summary: I brought this to replace my venerable HP DeskJet 970CXi, after it finally failed following a good 6 years of reliable service.

Summary: canon have done it again with this printer good quality printing prints well onto cd/dvd surprised the ink lasts quite a long time not what other reviewers were saying but excellent value for money

Then every 3 or 4 minutes it cleans itself. If you leave it on overnight it will clean away all its ink and you'll have to buy another 5 cartridges.
Excellent printer - except it eats/drinks ink by the bucket

Summary: I started with a Canon iP4700 to continue printing Panoramic prints (210mm x 597mm) after my Epson Stylus Photo 750 failed. This then failed (red ink was blotchy) and I was given an iP4850 in exchange but in time this also failed (big black ink did not print). I was desperate for an A4 printer to continue printing Panoramic (I have a big stock of the paper and 10 frames around the house to fill) and so went for this iP4950, which is identical to the iP4850 and takes the...
