Summary: Well, yes it uses up ink and I took one star off for that. But it has been my go to portable photo printer for seven years. Never failed, never needed service (which is good since I don't think it's repairable after so many years).
Nice 4x6 and 5x7...Just be sure to use Canon paper

Summary: Recently bought this for my wife who does a lot of scrap booking. She is the perfect candidate for this type of printer because she never needs larger pictures than 4x6 for her scrapbooks, but when she does want to frame a picture, she prefers 5x7s.
Summary: I'm very happy with the quality of the prints that come out of this little printer. I have a Canon MP560 (multi-function) as well and the quality is nearly if not as good. I set it up without being connected to a PC, and it was easy. The only concern I have is with the casing that it's in.
Summary: I got this printer at a local discount store for only $30.00. I don't understand how Amazon can put such a high price on a discontinued (or soon to be) printer. Discontinuing this printer is too bad. It almost lives up to the hype.
Summary: I read the reviews before buying this printer and I was not disappointed in the quality of prints! They are amazing! I am, however, disappointed that I can't seem to get more than 70-80 prints out of one ink cartridge.
Summary: A very good little printer, easy to carry around and can be set up just about anywhere. However, there needs to be a way to edit photos that are being down loaded and printed on site from a memory card.
Summary: This is a great printer! Good quality, easy to set-up, and easy to print on my Macbook...BUT, the printer ink only lasts for about 20 prints. I thought maybe it was a fluke with the first printer cartridge, but then I got all of 15 4x6's and 5 5x7's out of the second cartridge.
Summary: This is a little gem. Portable, with a nicely designed handle. Fast. Only downside is that I haven't yet been able to profile papers on it as test sheets require 8.5x11....Other than that, cool.
Summary: the printer works great printing 4x6 and 5x7, and i haven't printed any other sizes but would assume that the images would print well too. there are no blur or grainy effects unless the original digital image had such effects in it.
