Reliable and good

Derek Simpson "Derek Simpson", Amazon

  • Summary: I threw (and I mean THREW) another A3+ printer of a different brand into a skip when I bought this for 1/3 of the price. After a year of infrequent use I have not suffered any of the regular glitches I had become used to. The bugbear for me is that it is hard to overrule the "idiot beginner" settings: the prinbter is capable of very very good output but I wish to print without any adjustment whatever applied by "enhance" and "optimize" controls.

IX6550 works fine

Trackend "Brandon", Amazon

  • Summary: I have read several comments regarding the print quality from the IX6550 I used to get the same thing when people used Durst enlargers. Calibrate your screen if you don't have a top flight PC display (it helps to get the colour balance right). The IX6550 is made to a budget (£148 in my case), a bit flimsy on the case build side but unless you intend to drop it on the floor it does the job. No wifi no pic bridge?

Excellent

Howiem, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer because I wanted an A3+ printer that wasn't going to cost a fortune. I'm extremely pleased with the prints I'm getting. I'm currently using Ilfrod Peal Paper which works extremely well with the printer. It doesn't have wi-fi, card slots or duplex but I didn't need any of those as I bought it purely as a photographic printer. I've just put in my second lot of inks so I'll see how the ink lasts.

Great Printer

  • Summary: I really like Canon Printers having been a convert from Epson. When I decided to go for an A3 printer, it had to be Canon. Before buying, the market was checked to see what was around, and for me the iX6550 was best choice.So far I have not been disappointed. The five cartridges it uses [2 x Black, Magenta,Cyan & Yellow], return excellent printed colours and screen matching on all the media I have put through it.

An excellent printer

misty morning sunshine, Amazon

  • Summary: I had been using an Epson 1290 A3+ printer for over 10 years and thought it was very good ...until I bought this. What a difference. Ok, maybe all printers are much better a decade on, but this gives perfect results every time, whether at 6x4" photo size or borderless A3, and it's quieter, much faster, never jams (well, not yet, after 5 months of regular use), closes up fairly compactly, and communicates seamlessly with my Mac (which my Epson never quite did).

Canon Pixma iX6550

Grim Git, Amazon

  • Summary: Make no mistake, this is a great printer. As others have said, to get better A3+ prints you will have to spend at least twice as much. However, as with most of these lower-medium cost Canon inkjets, you pay through the nose for the Canon genuine ink cartridges with a full set in most stores costing around £50. Shop around and you can bring the price down to under £40.

Canon A3+ printer IX6550

Bazzer, Amazon
25 September 2012
  • Summary: This the first time I have purchased a Canon printer having been a user of Epson products for 19 years. Changed to Canon on this occasion because Epson did'nt have A3+ printer to suit my pocket. I am delighted with the IX6550 - it is basic but it does what it says on the tin i.e. prints up to A3+ The colour repro is excellent. I would however have welcomed ink cartridges with a bigger capacity. Otherwise at the price quality there is nothing out there to beat it.
