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. How is this possible in today's energy conscience world? Obviously if you turn it off, you must press the ON button to turn it back 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). However, printing on disc with this unit is rather convoluted. First off, you have to use Canon's software, which is neither simple, nor elegantly designed.
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. 2- When not actively in use, it shuts itself off so that if you want to print again, you have to wait for that several minute warm up again.
Summary: My Canon Pixma IP4300 packed it in after almost 5 years of service. A great printer with flexible feed options. This was replaced with Pixma IP4920. What a disappointment! Issues are: 1. smaller ink tanks than the IP4300 2. Ink tanks are black so the user has no idea of how much ink is left when the printer reports that the cartridge is empty. The IP4300 tanks are transparent and allows for the full usage of the remaining ink. 3.
