Summary: Overall this is a decent printer. I bought this to replace my Canon IP6700 that stopped working. I chose this one because I needed the double-sided printing and the wireless connectivity. The wireless on this printer was easy to setup and works great. The double-sided printing works very well, and the print speed is good. But other than that, this printer falls short of the IP6700.
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. This is something that we use in the office on a regular basis and had difficulty finding newwer printers that offered this feature.Overall the printer is nice, and easy to install.
Summary: When my Canon Pixma IP4500 stopped working, I thought it would be easy to find a similar printer that excelled at both home office tasks and printing photos. It seems that since my purchase 7 years ago, the printer world has split into two groups - multifunction printers for scanning and printing, and dedicated printers for photos.
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.
