Summary: I upgraded to the S600 from the BJC-6000, and am very glad I did. There is a noticeable improvement in the quality of images, and the speed is much faster. I recently purchased a Canon PowerShot S110 Digital Elph camera, and printing images from that even on plain paper is impressive. But, on photo paper, WOW! I'm sure there are better printers out there, but for me, the S600 does the job.
Summary: I've been living with this little guy for 6 months, and I've been very happy with it. And, I bought it right here [...] for about $175 or so, and I didn't have to pay shipping. I shopped several online shops and they couldn't compare price-wise. The only thing I didn't like was that the contents of the box was in no way concealed, so you might want to keep that in mind if your UPS man has a habit of leaving stuff on your porch. About the printer itself, it's a gem.
Summary: i previously owned a lexmark 3200 color printer and decided it was time to upgrade to something nicer and more economical (in reference to the ink cartridges). i did lots of research and read many reviews about the canon s600. i read some that were sub-par and was worried it would give me problems. i purchased it anyway and immediately after installing it, i printed a large bitmap picture (nearly taking up a full sheet). the quality and speed were incredible!!
Summary: I think this is a very good printer overall. I am sharing the printer on a Windows 98 machine and two Windows 2000 computers are printing to it over a network. No problems at all. I am using this as a home office printer. Printing photo quality documents is not important to me. I print many technical documents though for my own use. So far, this printer has worked out great. I have been printing in "draft" format to save ink and it still comes out very dark.
Summary: After scouring the internet for product reviews, comparisons, etc on photo quality printers, I saw the Canon S600 at Ritz camera while picking up some prints. After talking with the salesperson for about 20 minutes, and after assurances that I could return it if I was not satisfied, I decided to buy it. My old workhorse, the HP 660c was no longer adequate and I am mostly interested in printing photos from my Sony DS 30 camera.
Summary: I use this printer primarily for home. It really does what I want. Very quiet and the print quality is excellent, much better than other printers at similar price. A very important feature this printer gives you is the option to replace only cartridge that runs out of ink (don't have to buy all cartridges at once). It can print high quality photo on regular white paper, not have to print on a glossy photo paper (but not on recycled paper either!).
Summary: I have had this printer for a few months now and I am extremely impressed. It is probably the fastest ink jet printer I have ever seen, and still manages to print with great quality. It works wonderfully for plain text, graphics, and high quality photos. Setting it up is very easy with the included setup poster, and it can be connected to a parallel port or a USB port. In addition, it's very economical with ink.
Summary: this printer is one of the best printers i have owned and have owned hp,lexmark,epson and let me tell you this printer beats them all hands downs. the photo quality was the best i have ever seen on any printer. I would recommend this printer to anybody looking for a great printer at a great price.
