Summary: I bought this printer a year ago and am just writing a review as it has stood the test of time. I had previously only used epson printers, but as I go thru spurts of printing found that their ink cartridges clogged if not used regularly. The PIXMA IP8500 absolutly does not do this!!!!
Summary: Yes, it costs more than most photo printers. Advantages: multiple paper sizes/quality can be used. It is whisper smooth quiet. It prints fast and seemingly, after just a day of printing many pictures, uses very little ink.
Summary: I've had mine for 2 months now and it is great! First non-HX printer I've bought in the past 10 years and I'm very pleased with it. Beautiful photos, very fast. Newegg was excellent, as always.
Summary: After alot of research, i have purchased my first photo printer and im really enjoying it. I was blown away with my first print using cannon glossy photopaper pro. The quality is perfect. Infact, the picture looked much better on photo paper than on my monitor. Thanks, newegg.
Summary: Printer was suppose to come in 3 days but got it in 2, super job newegg! Setup printer and had it printing perfect quality photos in about 10 min. everything as promised! I recommend this printer to anybody how wants superb results! Thanks Newegg!
Summary: For those looking at this printer it's a great buy. I skip this one only because of paper size and opted for the i9900. If your a 3 Mpixel camera and 8x10 buy this on. If you are 5 Mpixel or greater and want up to 13 x 19 your in a i9900. Canon Easy photo is great print it now software.
Summary: After online research and reading Comsumer Reports I purchased the Cannon Pixma IP8500. I received it within 3 days and had it printing in about 30 minutes. I had to go buy a USB cord, the only negative. The pictures are great..so much better than I was used to with my HP 2210. Very good investment.
Summary: This is my first Canon printer. All of the hype about the 8500 and 9900 models made me jump into the purchase mode. The unit did arrive a day earlier than promised and all supplies ordered were with the printer. Good job Newegg.
Summary: I was amazed at how easily I could set up this printer and print photo quality prints, and how good they look. I'm not a pro, but I can't tell the difference between a film photo and a photo printed from this printer!
