Summary: Its a middle of the road printer.. and I've been using without complaint for ~2 years. Does seem to chew thru the ink, but I guess that's the business model now.. cheap printers, expensive ink. Recently tried to move it to a linux server in the house so we could share it amongst several computers. Alas there are no printer drivers that I can find.
Summary: The photos are nice (that is the only reason I give it two stars), but it uses ink like its going out of style and the cartrdiges are very expensive. If you replace both ink cartridges it is less expensive to buy a new printer. That's exactly what I did. This product is not recommended (if you can afford the ink you should be able to afford a printer with more features).
Summary: As everyone else is reporting, this printer is pretty expensive to maintain- the printer cartridges combined cost about $60 and that lasts me approximately 2-3 months. I print only a few pages a day, typically only in fast-draft. I heard about Walgreen's new inkjet refilling that costs a fraction of buying a new cartridge, but of course these cartridges are excluded from most of the Canon's being able to be refilled.
Summary: I have this printer in my office and am considering replacing it with an Epson. I has a lot of features.. espcially for the price (i.e. direct input from a camera or a memory card),but it is very slow and noisy. The print quality is very good.. as are most ink jet printers in this price range. But it is very slow and noisy. Did I say slow and noisy?
