Good enough to buy again - That speaks as well as anything for a product

riick, Ebay

  • Summary: I owned this printer before this particular item came up on eBay but as it was used heavily - it eventually needed some repairs that I didn't want to make so I purchased this very slightly used printer on eBay to replace the one I had & liked so much. Prior to this item coming up on eBay & knowing I would have to replace my dying printer, I purchased another Canon printer on eBay (an even more expensive model) that ended up with fewer features than what I already had.

  • Summary: If you want GREAT Pictures, buy one of these Printers from Canon. It uses the same printhead from the Pro Models. Pictures are GREAT!! People will not beleive that you printed these pictures.

Canon iP8500 Printr

  • Summary: This is a workhorse of a printer. It is sad that Canon quit making this one. I have used up my first one (maybe 400 ink cartridges) and now have two others.

  • Summary: I have used the Canon printers including the i960, the pixma i6000, the i9900 as well as this iP8500 and all of them do a superb job. I print lots of photos and find the very inexpensive compatible ink cartridges to work well.

Outstanding photographic quality & reliable performance

kamavalli, Ebay

  • Summary: Printers tend to be unwieldy. I generally expect mandatory annoyances, errors, mysteries, and lots of wasted paper and wasted ink when it comes to printing. However, Canon really threw me for a loop with their recent high-quality photo printers. I've had one other model besides the pixma ip8500, and both of them have actually been MUCH easier to work with and much less prone to mayhem than the cheap inkjets and deskjets of the past.

Incredible photo quality

dbetger, Ebay
8 March 2007
  • Summary: I bought my iP8500 on eBay as a replacement for an Epson Photo 870. I use the printer primarily for color photo and graphic printing (I have a laser printer for routine text printing). While I felt the Epson had darn good print quality, it had one serious flaw: if you let it sit idle for a week or two, the nozzles would clog and require cleaning. Sometimes it would take several tries to get it going again, and this blew through ink in a big way.
