Summary: Well, this was fun. First, Amazon listed as "in stock". Then I was told there would be a delay. OK, no big deal. ------------------------------------------------------------------ I go to set it up, there are little pieces of paper taped everywhere, cautions about this, cautions about that. One sheet of paper actually said how terribly important it is not to put the printhead in incorrectly(at least that's what I think the illustration was showing).
Summary: The product was delivered in a box with no product packaging, no styrofoam pacing and all the components loose. There was another delivery label under the one with my address and it was obvious that it had been sold to another customer first who had unpacked it and decided to return it and it was then just sent off to me without Amazon even checking the contents. I will never buy anything from Amazon again. It's a miracle that the printer works at all.
Summary: Love the separate ink tanks which allow for re-filling & only of the color(s) needed @ the time.Saves lotsa $! SOftware speed slow from computer to printer as compared to other less-expensive brand. Prefer paper loading format that is easier to immediately access, as for 2-sided printing.
Summary: I've always used Canon printers and they usually deliver good results even on the low end of the product line, which this printer is. The price was very good for the quality you get. Of course Canon and other printer companies can sell printers of this quality at a low price point because they more that make up for the deal on the printer when you have to buy replacement ink tanks.
Summary: Bought two identical printers, one great, one not so good.Mine of course being the woman, got the sick one. all printing is crooked, tried moving the paper, no luck. Top printer does great pictures. Bottom says no paper when its full or otherwise. Husband's work's great of course, no one wants to complain with a man.Tried to get my husband to trade with me, since he doesn't print from computer much, just lot's of pictures which on both are good.
Summary: I had a Epson for many yrs. have only gone thru 2 in about 15 yrs. Still would believe in epson if they fixed the clogging heads problem. tried HP and they are crap. decided try to a Canon. After much research and reading reviews here, decided did not want to invest too much(just in case it sucked). I was pleasently surprised. Prints well , nice colors. I do use it to print my photographs.
