Summary: Bought this to upgrade from A4 printing with HP product to A3 photo printing. The first A3 print from this made us go "Wow". Already framed and on the wall. Resolution of print is amazing, speed is pretty good. Can't comment on cartridge life yet as we've only done 10 A3's so far. highly recommend to anyone wanting good quality photo A3 printing at sensible prices.
Summary: This is one of two Canon Printers that I own and as you will notice I am a bit of a Canon fan. This was purchased purely for my photographic needs. Hence I was not worried by the absence of whistles and bells. This is a straightforward, no nonsense colour printer and a good one. It allows me to print A3+ photographs, within my own price range. My choice is to stick with Canon for both ink and paper resulting in amazing results.
Pros: Easy set up and operation; Photo Lab. quality; Cost effective
Cons: No USB cable provided; Only one USB port; No Card slots.
Summary: This is a photo printer for amateur photographers who demand a top quality output. The clarity and colour depth is noticeably superior to the relatively cheap Canon printer that I'd been using happily for years. If you want to print your best shots at home, this one will deliver prints of near-exhibition quality.
Summary: Bought this as the printheads on my old printer had come to the end of their life - even though the heads are easily removed, it would cost almost as much to replace them as a new printer. I'd always wanted an A3 printer (for that odd job which comes along once a flood!) and this jumped out at me for 2 reasons - it had loads of good reviews & I can buy a continuous ink system (CISS) for it.
