Summary: I bought this printer because my pixma iP3000 wast ink receptacle filled up (after about 10 years). I loved my old printer; it did a great job, and didn't use too much ink. This one takes about 1 to 1-1/2 minutes to print the first page of any job. 'Basically you need to give it a cup of coffee to wake up before it will print. My wife, expecting an immediate print, often gets frustrated, punching more buttons, which only seems to confuse it.
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: I always purchased Canon, it is a good product. However this unit leaves only a little more explanation as to how to use various paper drawers, for instance I can't find anywhere where it tells you how to use the photo drawer. I looked but could not find Maybe someone can enlighten me.
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. It doesn't even tell you how to load the tray into the machine for printing - it just tells you how to remove it from the bottom of the paper tray.
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. Once it starts printing it does reasonably well and it can print multiple copies reasonably fast. But the "wait time" for that first page seemingly takes forever. I use the wireless feature as well.
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. It sounds like there is a board meeting going on inside the printer - lots of clicks and sounds like the printer is performing a diagnostic check or something.
Summary: The canon IP7220 is a home level product , the software is inconsistent and works better if it is tied to the computer in USB mode. Wireless is subject to intermittent operation as the soft ware over a variety of computers of different operation systems is variable.
