Excerpt: I have only had the printer for a short time, but it seems to do every thing well. I bought it as a replacement for the iP4000. Prints photos very good and has good document performance as well. I think the two paper trays will prove to be very usefull as well as the two sided printing capability. Cons: It is very noisy and takes a lot of time to start printing.
Summary: Inexpensive. Quality print. Ramping up, frustratingly slow. Almost decided to send back because of this. Seems to be demanding on ink. But does an exceptional job in printed output, pictures and text.
Summary: The printer arrived on time and in one piece. It took me a while to figure something out. This printer actually has 2 print trays. My hand naturally went to the upper tray. That holds smaller sized photo paper, 4x6, 5x7, etc. It also has another tray attached underneath for CD's! I didn't realize all of this. There's a 2nd, lower, tray that holds 8x11 paper. I printed out a test sheet and it was horrible! Everything as all yellow. I printed out several more samples.
Excerpt: Purchased another Canon to replace PIXMA IP4000 because of 8 yrs or so of faithful service and superior photo prints. Canons use a lot of ink - probably that is why the photos turn out nice. But draft or speed mode for my text printing saves ink is is almost always adequate to my needs. As many users who complained about the dropping of the rear feeder, I miss that feature but have not had difficulties in printing 4x6 photos - have yet to try letter size photos.
Great photos, somewhat inconvenient paper handling

Summary: I bought this printer to replace an aging HP 7560 that had begun to turn itself off in the middle of print jobs, leaving wet ink for me to clean up. The HP was a great photo printer, and I was sorry to see it go. I was hoping that the Canon iP7220 would be as good. It is. You couldn't ask for a better photo printer even for several hundred dollars more (according to a "leading consumer magazine" that doesn't like to be cited by name).
Excerpt: As a motorsports photogher and webmaster, I've had a string of Canon printers over about 15 years.Always excellent quality.Only change on this one is twin cassettes but no reat tray. But very heavy photo stock feeds well from the lower cassette.
Summary: So far I haven't had any trouble. Set up was easy and pretty straight forward. I had no trouble connecting to my wireless network. This is replacing a Canon i960 that is rapidly approaching the end of it's life. I'm happy with the quality of the pictures I've printed. I haven't printed too much text yet so I can't judge text quality yet. I'm trying to baby the i960 so I can use up my remaining ink.
Summary: The ink is better than Brother and almost as good as costlier HP's. Photo printing is what I use it for and the colors and their depth are vibrant and truer than when my Brother does it. I like the two paper trays and how I can keep two different sizes available without having to manually switch...it switches sizes and tray feed automatically. The individual ink cartridges are a plus. I don't use as much photo black as the other four and so replacements will be cheaper.
Conclusion: After reading the reviews the printer was better then I expected. Since I was setting it up on a low hutch shelf the front feed and front output is a plus since I'm limited on space. The quality of the photos match's my old IP6700D and there we're no jambs running several 4x6 at a time. Disc printing is exceptional. With Surething 6 or Canon software print alignment on discs was automatic and perfect. Text print was great and fast.
