Summary: I bought this printer because I wanted to print good quality photos at home. I already have an all-in-one for the everyday stuff so black and white text printing was not a concern. I have only used it a few times so far but am very happy with the quality and ease of use.
Summary: Great quality pictures and prints. Lots of options with software too. But the ink?...Expensive and very hard to find. Be sure to have at least 3 black and 2 sets of colors when you have this printer. It will use it.
Summary: I really like this printer, and I'm glad I picked it from the competition. If you use the included software, the photos print just like they look on your computer screen and are excellent quality in terms of color and resolution.
Summary: I bought it to replace my wife's S820 printer. Not pleased that I had to ditch her collection of S800 cartridges and buy Pixma cartridges. Way too many cartridges out there. She says it works perfectly and she likes the print.
Summary: This is a great printer that make sharp pictures of almost any size. The colors and clarity rival professional developing. The printer is also very versitile with direct printing from memory cards with an large LCD, printing from the camera, or printing from a computer (how I use it.
Summary: I bought this printer a few months back as a replacement for my Canon i860 that has been a workhorse. I was attracted by the direct printing from memory cards, as well as the additional photo color cartridges for better prints.
Rocky start but very good Canon customer service saved the day

Summary: I purchased this printer as a replacement for my Canon i860. The i860 still works great but the promise of longer print (ink) life lured me to the iP6600. Initially, prints looked magenta/red. Other reviewers have mentioned this.
Summary: First of all, these consumer reviews are the best and twice now have helped me to either rectify a bad purchase decision or make the right decision first time. So thanks to all who take the time to contribute. This printer is EXCELLENT in almost every respect.
Summary: Once you decide on the quality of printer you like, one of the first things to do is check on the ink cartridges. Replacement cartridges can run into big bucks, especially if the printer only takes 2 tanks and you have to replace the entire color one even if only one of the colors run out.
