Canon S630 Printer

aupoet, REVIEW STREAM
16 December 2004
  • Excerpt: I bought this printer used some two years ago after doing considerable homework on the net searching for a good, cheap to use, printer . This model has lived up to my idea of what a perfect basic printer should be. The separate ink tanks for each color mean I only have to buy what color I need and because they don’t have built-in print heads, they are cheap to buy. I have gotten them over the web for as little as $2.

Great Printer--except for the streaking

William Quan, Amazon
3 March 2004
  • Summary: The first three months with this printer, I loved it--clear photos and crisp quality. But after that, it went downhill, with streaking on the side. I'd seen this in a customer review and thought maybe they had bought a lemon, but the same thing has happened with my printer. Other than that, I like the individual ink tanks and photo print quality. But nothing looks good when there is a dark streak across your page!

Blurred/Spotty Printing After only 6 months!!!

William Quan, Amazon
29 November 2002
  • Summary: I researched printers and ended up on the Canon S630 as one of the best low budget printers. It installed easily and rinted quite nicely during the first couple of months. I then started getting blurred text and pictures. I walked through the various troubleshooting suggestions both on the install CD and the Canon web-site to re-align the heads and clean the tanks. I even forked out another $40 for new printer catridges.

best bang for the buck and then some...

D. Martin, Amazon
26 June 2002
  • Summary: i've had this printer for little over 5 months now, and i have to say that you get the best bang for your buck and then some. i looked over printers made by hp, lexmark, etc, even looking at some photo only printers and can't really tell the difference. i printed an 8x10 picture with heavy black ink usage and the print turned out way better than i had expected. further, it's so quiet, i sometimes have to hold my head near the printer to make sure it's running.

I'm very pleased with this printer

Christopher P. Kokis "Chris", Amazon
27 March 2002
  • Summary: I've been using this printer for about 3 months, light duty, and am very pleased with it. The quality of black text is very good indeed, and color printing is quite nice. The limited number of photos I've printed look great. And it's fast! After living for years with the HP 560C's tri-color cartridge, I love the separate ink tanks. I always thought it was really lousy to have to throw out a tank that had ink left in two of the chambers, but was empty in the third.

Great printer - Learn how to use it!

D. Martin, Amazon
24 March 2002
  • Summary: Some of the reviews refer to horrible text quality - which I experienced until I learned how to use the printer. You have to set your print quality to "high" not "standard." It is a little slower, but it is very crisp print. I had the same problem printing photos until I learned how to use the settings. It produces nice 8x10's from my digital camera, and it's price per page is competitive.

Great overall printer

D. Martin, Amazon
10 March 2002
  • Summary: After much research into an ink-jet printer that would do a decent job for printing my digital photos, I decided to get the Epson 785EX. I was trying to decide between the HP 1315photo printer, this Canon, and the Epson when a customer walked in and told me he loved the Epson. Brought the Epson home, and it took an hour to install.

easy, inexpensive and high quality

Christopher P. Kokis "Chris", Amazon
11 February 2002
  • Summary: I recently upgraded to the Canon s630 and I'm quite pleased with the print quality. The photos from my Olympus digital camera print beautifully on either matte or glossy paper, and the poster printing function is a nice plus (You can spread a picture out over a 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 matrix of 8x10 pages, and the printer will divide up the picture for printing. After that, simply cut and paste to get prints up to approximtely 30 by 40 inches.
