Canon PIXMA iP5200 Printer

AFColonel, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Best printer I have ever owned. Ink cartridges are now very reasonable if not the OEM and they work extremely well. After several years usage the print head went bad and I made a mistake and bought another brand printer and was sorely disappointed. I purchased a new printhead for this Canon Pixma printer and it is like new, and twice the quality of the other printer in both speed and print quality.

Buyer Beware

Average Exception, Amazon
21 November 2007
  • Summary: If considering this printer you need to know that it won't print in just plain "black and white" if any of the colour ink cartridges are empty, even if both black ink cartridges are full ! I was infuriated to find that I needed a magenta cartridge before I could print out my CV, which (a) needed only black ink and (b) was needed in a hurry ! Be prepared to keep a stock of cartridges on hand - sadly, the printer doesn't offer you any options in this situation....

  • Excerpt: Canon printers have been around for quite a bit of time already. It’s huge amount of marketing onto their printers, scanners and cameras, has made them into a fairly established brand in Singapore now.

Nice Printing But Terrible Paper Handling

Manuel A. Calcagno, Amazon
12 May 2007
  • Summary: After only a few weeks of use, paper started jamming, in this printer. This problem only got worse with time. I am currently on my second unit (Canon sends you a used/refurbished unit as a replacement) and still having the same problem. Paper randomly jams in the transport and the printer has to be turned upside down and opened, in the back, to try and get the torn paper out. Sometimes it just tears the edges of the paper, like Jaws.

Best Quality and some advice

Joyce A. Ratasepp "Kittyfartz", Amazon
7 March 2007
  • Summary: I do alot of scrapbooking. I scan my old pictures, burn them for safekeeping and then reprint them on this printer they look wonderful. I have even scanned objects such as lace doilies and printed the out for my scraping. It is easy to use and does not take up much space on my desk. I get most of my photo paper at places like Big Lots and Aldi's. The Dollar Stores I went to recently have acid free photo paper as well and this printer does a great job on it as well.

Canon PIXMA iP5200 Photo Printer

Peter L. Parry, Amazon
26 February 2007
  • Summary: An excellent printer for color prints. However, if your use is 90% black and white and only 10% color, there are better printers.

  • Pros: Very easy to use. I really like the fact that it has 2 paper trays.
  • Cons: Colour quality is very poor for people. It fairs better for objects.

Great printer for the money!

T. Maxwell, Amazon
9 January 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this printer for the office because I had such good luck with a similar model at home. There is consistant quality in everything I print on this machine. It is especially reliable for matching the colors expertly on photos and graphics. I would highly recommend this Canon printer to anyone.

A great printer

brucedhs, Ebay
7 November 2006
  • Summary: After checking with friends, consumer reports, etc. this looked like the best all round printer out there, especially since I wanted to up my quality for photos from the HP's I've been using. The photo quality is good, the size of the printer is great, I like having two feeds (top and bottom), totally satisfied.
