Summary: Currently, my printer reports an error that "The ink absorber is almost full". Canon tells me that the printer "is at end-of-life" and that maintenance and parts are no longer available. It was a good printer, but I am told that once the ink absorber is completely full, it will stop working altogether. Canon told me that the nearest repair center is what amounts to over an hour away. For my next printer, I will try to find a company which has a better maintenance policy.
Summary: Purchased the printer in a set that included a Fax, and Scanner but kept the printer in the original box since my Canon I850 was working great. Recently switched printers and have had nothing but problems with the IP6310. Since it remained in the box for the past couple years returning it was out of the question. I was very disappointed in the quality and cheap material.
Summary: I have owned this printer for about 3 years and it died all of sudden. Lots of pictures printed over the years mostly on 4x6 photo paper and always purchased ink in bulk tri-packs using the 51&52 cartridges. Images are always sharp and clear as from a lab. I was lucky to find the same model on ebay for $70 new-in-box not a refurb and it is working great. If it last another 3 years this will be the best photo printer I have owned.
Summary: I've had my iP6310D for four months now and I am perfectly happy with it. I am not a professional photographer and use a point-and-shoot camera. The printer does a nice job of printing these types of pictures. I would suggest using the Canon 52 photo ink cartridge for high quantity printing. I would estimate that I've been able to print approximately 30-40 photos (4x6 size), I don't know if that's a lot or just a little. Easy to use, quick to set up.
Summary: I needed a new printer ASAP after my old one just stopped working. Wonder of wonders, Amazon had a special on the Canon PIXMA iP6310D that day. The reviews were good, the price was better. I have now had this printer as my main printer for several months, and the things I like about it are: -Very clear page prints -Ease of use (loading, tray, set-up, etc) -Size and design The things I don't: -Fairly noisy -Takes a while to print a page, noisily wheezing back and forth,...

Summary: This product has been a pain in the a**. The cartridges don't last, the color cartridges have lasted for about 1 picture and it will print with 1/2 color and 1/2 black and white. I've also had problems with the Canon scanner. I just bought an HP and it has been a dream compared to this.
