Having problems with uneven white border

tina, Canon
1 January 2014
  • Conclusion: The printer worked great for about a year, but now I keep getting a small white border at the right and bottom of photos I print. I use this printer almost exclusively for photo printing and this misalignment makes it so I have to crop my photos down. I've tried cleaning the printer rollers and align the print head to no avail. I'm not sure why this problem suddenly arose, and I cannot find a solution….
  • Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
  • Cons: Large Footprint, unreliable

Good overall

Anna, Canon
16 December 2013
  • Conclusion: I'm a graphic design student and wanted an all-purpose printer to use during school. My main concern was when printing images I needed quality and color-matching, and this printer is great. I also love the ability to print on various page sizes, but for the price it would be amazing to have a scanner or Wi-Fi capabilities for sending print jobs. Be sure you do not want those extra features.. otherwise it is a great buy for students and casual use/photo printing.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
  • Cons: needs to be plugged in to the computer, no scanner

Limited paper compatibility

indigo_dog, Canon
4 December 2013
  • Conclusion: 1. This printer absolutely will not make a decent print on anything except photo paper. Of course I'm a graphic designer so decent means something different to me than to an average user. It makes beautiful graphic prints on photo paper, so my portfolio looks fabulous but I cannot print on any kind of cardstock; it absolutely will not print well. So my Christmas cards look bad. 2. Also, it refuses to print envelopes; they always feed crooked.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use, quiet
  • Cons: unreliable, narrow range of paper compatibility, seems fragile

Broke

PhotoMarketingUSA, Canon
14 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Well, to start with I found this printer on-line to replace a 6 yr old Canon iP6700 photo printer that died due to a surge. The iX worked for 8 days then quite connecting with the computer. The USB port on the printer is defective. Otherwise, it's a really nice printer when it first arrived.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, durable, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use, low ink usage
  • Cons: unreliable, case shows finger prints and smudges

Too Early to Tell: actually about 4.5

Paintslinger, Staples
12 September 2013
  • Excerpt: My old Canon i9100 died one day; the black print head bit the dust and could no longer operate. All my test prints were "black-less". That printer had been in regular use for around 10 years. It was such a durable and great machine I looked for a Canon model again. Unfortunately, there was no printer equivalent to my i9100 currently available. It was a wide-format ink-jet printer that would print up to 13" x 19" page size.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time
  • Cons: Not Wireless

first and only inkjet I've actually liked

Reggie Hammond, Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: I've owned printers form Xerox, several HPs, and now this Canon. This is the lowest price I've ever paid for a printer and by far the highest print quality. I'm an amateur photographer, and I never seem to get around to having my pictures printed. I absolutely love having the ability to create high-quality prints up to 13x17 at home. Print quality and color accuracy are as good or better than any professional print shop I've used.

Cycles too much ink

Noctis, Staples
5 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It is not bad as far as printing documents and color pages goes. The major gripe I have about this printer is the rediculous amount of ink it uses. Scratch that, not USE but WASTES! It cycles the print head before printing and after printing every time, there is no way to get around it even if you shut it down right after you print a document it cycles, when you turn it back on, it cycles. You cannot keep it on, it will cycle and then auto shut off after a few hours.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time
  • Cons: Large Footprint, Too much ink used

I love this printer!

Ciaoenrico, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: I have had this printer since Dec 2012 and use it to print out quality art prints that I resell. The prints are always vibrant, clear, and clean. My only issue is that it doesn't print out larger than 13"x19". Sure it uses alot of ink but every printer I've ever had for art prints has used alot of ink. Maybe that's what gives them their vibrance. Otherwise, no issues and if this one ever breaks, I will buy another.

Goodbye Epson

Cecil Shute, Amazon
4 September 2013
  • Summary: I've used Epson printers for years, thinking they were the best for photos. I finally had enough when my last Epson printer failed to recognize Epson ink. Other reviewers, with the same experiences compelled me to buy this printer... and I'm so glad I did. I'm an artist and use photos in my work. I also print marketing materials with images constantly.

Eye piercing blue LED

zeek, Canon
4 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The eye piercing blue LED is a big distraction. They should've done red or green for a power on indicator.
