Excerpt: We purchased this printer after our old HP photosmart kicked the bucket. At first it was a great experience with the Canon, it works as promised until we used some prescription paper in the feed tray. The thickness of the Rx paper was a lighter weight than the 28lb paper and photo paper we use daily in the printer, but was heavier that the standard $ saver praper.
Conclusion: All I wanted was to print DVD labels. Blank, with text. Business-like. The software for this purpose that came with the printer is terrible. Limited functionality, text in pre-determined places, limited flexibility. If what you want is to occasionally print a label with a picture of your cat on it, and limited text this may be the one for you.
Conclusion: When my iP4300 (which I liked very much) gave up the ghost I bought an iP7220. I was very disappointed. The paper supply is limited to a bottom-loading paper tray instead of being located on top. This is inconvenient in that it is impossible to gauge how much paper is left in the printer just by looking, and it means that anything in front of the printer has to be moved before the tray can be removed and reloaded.
Summary: This printer provides good quality print but the main feature I bought this for was the wireless connection. I danced around for a 2-3 months playing whack-a-mole. I would install it at one computer and then work on connecting the other computers wirelessly. It would seem to be all set up but then my wife would tell me here computer was not printing any more. I ran in circles for a while and finally figured out to just use Google Cloud Print to share the printer.
Summary: The only reason I bought this printer was for CD label printing. The driver for OSX is very limited on features and doesn't let me print on CD. The included Easy Print also doesn't work on OSX. Oh the irony. Fortunately I also have a windows computer do i can still use the printer. If you have a mac look at other printers.
Conclusion: this was a terrible purchase! once it gets going its fairly quick but man alive getting to get going..wow! takes a long time and i hear alot of movement of the cartridges and nothing being produced..
Conclusion: Like many others writing a review of this product, I have been using Canon for years. The best model I had was the ip4200 which worked very well. However, the Pixma iP7220 doesn't work 50% of the time, mostly due to "communication errors" or "the printer is not connected" which it is!!!! We got this so we could use it wireless and share the printer between my husband and I. Perhaps, there is something wrong with the wireless connection. I am very disappointed.
Summary: I bought this primarily to print on DVDs. And in that it failed spectacularly. The DVD tray fed in, the printer made some noise then spit it out. Every attempt to try again was met with an error code. Then, just try to find online help. There is zero. I should have read the user reviews on Canon's website, universally disappointed. And the construction of his printer? Cheap, cheap, cheap. It was so flimsy feeling I was afraid to sneeze in the same room.
Excerpt: Although this is a good quality Canon printer, I am not at all satified with this product! The reg. size ink cartridges do not last long enough for the price. I intend to try the "XL" cartridges which will hopefully be a better buy. I also do not care for the cartridges being black & unable to physically see that the ink is depleted. The other problem is, there is no manual paper feed.
