Summary: Prints nice, albeit slow... Paper loading an immediate problem, the try malfunctions and quit working after about 10 loads. Top loading does not work at all... because the machine will not work unless paper is manually fed or the cassette is loaded...
Summary: Don't expect Canon to honor warranty. My unit died after fewer than six months and 500 pages. Canon has no equivalent units for warranty exchange and the local Canon service center cannot get assistance from factory.
Summary: The "fail" list for this product is too long. I gave it a star because I had to, not because it deserved one. This is by far the most poorly built product that I have ever purchased. i have been a Canon (desktop) printer customer for as long as they have been making them and have been more than happy until I purchased this printer. Canon must be privately hanging their head in shame. For me, it will prevent me from purchasing a Canon in the future.
Summary: Very Pleased with setup and performance so far the only thing that was not as expected was the print speed when doing duplex printing there is a long hesitation between printing side one and side two.
Summary: I don't understand why there are so many less than ideal reviews for this printer. Unless it's because the owners didn't use it long enough to get rid of the habits they developed from their old printers. This printer far surpassed my expectations of it, after having been a career long user of HP large format printers.
Summary: This printer works pretty well for me. I use it for large format schematics on plain paper and large photos for my wife. This printer is just like my old i860 in that it requires that you print a nozzle check every day. Failure to do this will result in premature print head failure. Even doing this, you can expect to replace a print head once a year. I keep new print heads in stock. The ink is quite inexpensive from China.
Summary: The only printer I could buy for my Mac at the local Apple store was a Canon, and it has given me problems ever since I replaced the first (which collapsed after three years of light usage). Plus, the cost of the color or black cartridge is obscene. I'm switching to another printer today.
Summary: I don't know why this printer gets so many bad reviews. I've had mine for about 18 months now. It works great; I've had no problems at all. I use it mostly as a regular business printer on 8.5x11" plain paper. It's FAST as an ordinary text printer (slower on photos, but still OK), reasonably quiet, and much more efficient with ink than I expected. Before this I was using Canon MP830 all-in-one printers (which were pretty good too, but they don't sell them anymore).
Summary: We've owned the Canon iX7000 for almost a year--and it's dead. The printhead is fried and will not print anything. It has NEVER been an easy or intuitive product to use. We have used only Canon OEM inks--and no matter hwo careful one is, they spill, squirt or squish ink all over your hands and the inside the printer. I still have never found a way to load new inks without making at least some mess.
