Summary: This is my second Canon printer, I previously had an iP4300. This one has smaller ink cartridges but as fully compatible cartridges are available, the additional expenditure is not a problem. The machine performs to my expectations.
Summary: The printer seems to be working fine. However, the screen instructions for putting paper into the tray at the bottom of the printer are confusing and have to be ignored. I therefore place the paper into the position at the top back. My neighbour has exactly the same situation. Unfortunately, when commencing printing the screen continues to tell me that the (lower) tray is empty and requires filling.
A good value and good quality CD printer with a couple of small issues

Summary: I purchased this printer solely for use as a CD printer in a small software development company. So I can only comment on it's CD/DVD printing ability. I use Taiyo Yuden Watershield glossy CD's as these provide the most professional finish of all the printable CD's I've tried. Compared against the Epson Stylus R200 I previously used for CD printing, the iP4950 is definitely faster, easier to use, more reliable and has significantly more detailed print quality.
Summary: I WANTED ANOTHER CANON iP 4600 COULD NOT GET ONE I WAS RECORMENDED THE CANON 4950 WELL I CANT TELL THE DIFFRENCE BETWEEN TE TWO THE PRINT QUAULITY IS AVERAGE BUT OF COURSE IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE.
Summary: After previously using an ip4300 model and wearing it out,i needed to purchase another for printing cd/dvd disc labels. This newer model is o.k but the process of actually getting the disc picture to the printing process is quite tricky.It takes a long time for the picture to be ready for printing. However, the actual results are satisfactory.
Summary: Not much to say - works fine out of the box. Does exactly what it's supposed to in very good quality. Found the latest Canon wizard (drivers) slightly distracting at first but no problems now.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace my more expensive Epson photo printer, which had reached the end of the road. I wanted something to print off photos of the grand-kids etc, and didn't want to spend the same sort of money as I had on my Epson. This Pixma does an adequate job of that, without equalling the quality of my Epson 1290. It was supplied with 2 sets of compatible cartridges, which I knew in advance and was prepared to accept, given the price.
Summary: After my Canon Pixma ip 4300 died,I thought I'd replace it with a similar model.So I bought the Canon Pixma ip4950. This does the job o.k.but it does take so long to get started. I can't tell how many times it cleans itself before it consider's its ready to start work. Also the ink cartridges are so much smaller than the 4950. The ink capacity is a problem.If I were a more regular user, e.g.in an office,I can't see this model being a viable proposition.
