Nice Prints and Functionality but Expensive and Shortlived Ink
6 April 2014
Summary: I have used this printer for at least a year and have been pleased with the quality of the prints as well as the scanning features. The print speed is reasonable. Both the wireless and ethernet works quite well. It shows up as an airprint printer for all of my iOS devices. So why the 2 star rating?
Summary: This printer has been troublesome from the start for us. The wireless doesn't always work, and if the printer isn't "awake" it never works. Other printers I've had wake up when needed. Also, it is now broken just a year later. I've not used Canon before and thinking I won't be in the future.
Spends a lot of time 'warming up', wastes a lot of ink

Summary: ********UPDATE 8/22/13*********** This multifunction is now primarily a scanner for me. I simply got sick of replacing all of the ink cartridges (yes, all of them) every quarter. That's over $300 worth of ink a year !!! No thanks - bought a Brother laser printer.
Summary: I just bought this printer 3 days ago- the cost was great compared to competition and reviews were raving - it's going back - what is on my screen after doing extensive photo editing is not what comes from this printer - everything has an orange hue - when you spend a long time preparing quality and...
Summary: This is the third Canon printer in the PIXMA line I've owned. Printing is comparable to past versions; however, be aware of some changes. First this printer is NOT energy star compliant, in other words, unless you set the machine to TURN OFF completely (manually or automatically), it will stay on.
Summary: I purchased this printer to replace an HP that had stopped printing on disc, though it still worked on paper. HP no longer seems to make a CD inkjet printer, this was about the only option out there. As a text printer, this is fine (as is just about everything else made these days).
Huge ink drain, ALL PRINT FUNCTIONS ARE DISABLED WHEN EVEN ONE INK CART IS EMPTY

Summary: First, I will start by saying that this printer, when functional, prints beautiful photos and other color images. It also sets up relatively simply, if a bit slow due to all of the lengthy installs and setup processes. Currently, those are my only positive comments. This printer drains ink like mad.
Summary: This is the MOST DIFFICULT printer to set up for wireless printing and it DOES NOT come with a cord so it has to be set up to use WIFI ONLY (MY PRINTER WILL NOT PRINT WHEN THE USB CORD IS PLUGGED IN, EVER!!!!). I am very computer savvy and this was the biggest pain I have ever had.
Summary: I had a Canon Pixma iP5000 printer for several years that I loved. It died, so I decided I wanted to replace it with another Canon product. Sorry I made the choice that I did. The Pixma iP4920 does a great job of printing, BUT: 1- It takes several minutes to warm up.
