Excerpt: I use this mainly for direct to disc DVDs. This feature works only with Canon Image Garden. DTD option shows up in other programs when printing but does not center on disc and overlaps the tray making a mess. I have an i9900 as well and use this for photos.
Excerpt: We purchased this PIXMA to replace our old HP Photosmart print that had finally given up the ghost after quite a few years. The major reason we purchased the PIXMA is because it offered printability directly onto CD and DVDs.
Conclusion: I have been using Canon for years and I like there products but, I think they dropped the ball on this one. It sounds like it is coming apart when you use it. Print quality is good. I liked my ip5000 better but, I could no longer get a print head for it. I don't like not having the rear paper feed.
Summary: This was a purchase of necessity; my Epson R220 had clogged nozzles I couldn't get unclogged. Specifically I needed to print DVDs for my business. The manual has to be installed (yup, it's an .exe file, not a pdf) and it is as if the DVD print function is non-existent as far as Canon is concerned.
Summary: I've had my printer now for about 4 weeks. It does very well on photo quality paper. My only real complaint is that the printer's start up time is very slow. It takes it about 3 to 4 minutes to initialize every time you turn it on or send it a new print job.
Summary: Setup was a snap once I discovered there are TWO paper trays. Pros: Text print & picture quality. Some of the included software is user friendly & useful. Cons: Unlike my previous and still in use Canon Pixma iP4300 the first page you print takes a long time before it actually prints.
Summary: With exception of the wireless connection, the printer is a real joy to use. I can't say I'm sorry i bought it because it is so good otherwise.
Pros: Wonderful colors. Prints very well. As an inkjet printer this one amazes me because I'm strictly a laser printer guy. Got it to print t-shirt logo designs. Does that very well, but iron on paper stinks. not the printer's fault. I consider it a great backup printer for my Okidata C3400n led printe...
Cons: Failed to setup the wireless feature repeatedly, without and with the USB cable. The process just plain stinks and the wireless feature should be recognized automatically. Or you should at least be able to add it by using the network key. It seems to accept only WEP keying and I use WPA/WPA2. But...
