Not reliable,

ZAM, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • 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.

Very happy with my printer.

  • Summary: I brought this to replace my venerable HP DeskJet 970CXi, after it finally failed following a good 6 years of reliable service. Having initially wanted to stay with HP, I went for a Canon product after a recommendation from a friend, mainly down to his opinion of Canon printers & inks being good value for money. The printer is a little on the bulky side, but the solid build quality is more than worth it.

Beware - Ripoff Machine

Vitamino, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Before you decide to pay out your hard earned money on this machine you need to know it's main drawback. It is made to waste ink. When the machine cleans itself (something over which you have no control), it cleans away ink from the cartridges. Expensive ink. When you turn it on it automatically cleans itself. 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.

  • 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...
