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: 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: I have been working with printers for 30 years and have used many different brands and types. I have primarily been using HP Laserjets or Deskjets. It is getting difficult to find good inkjet printer that are not all-in-one. My father used to say "jack of all trades, master of none " and I believe this, there are too many things that can go wrong with an all-in-one. The few Canon printers I have used always seem to have a paper handling problem.
Summary: I've been looking for an edible printer that is both affordable and easy to use. The Canon iP3600 Photo Printer fits the bill! When I got an opportunity to use it when I made a boxing theme cake. I used it to print the logo on the ring floor and the ads on the sides. I received rave reviews for creativity. It's also easy to assemble so I was able to install it and use it right away.
Summary: This is my second Canon printer, the previous (S800) lasted for about 10 years until I wore out the print-head. The ip-3600's internal construction does not appear to be as good as the S800; however it is easy to set up and get to work and it provides well balanced color prints immediately. The print quality of both documents and photographs is very good.
Summary: My new printer arrived and did not print correctly. We contacted Canon and they sent directions on how to test the printer. We followed the directions and the printer still did not work. Canon sent us new ink cartirages, then a new print head and none of the items corrected the problem.
Summary: I bought this printer to print on edible icing images for cake decorating using edible food safe ink cartridges. I get the sheets and "ink" from Photo Images. The first print, a picture of a guy wakeboarding, was so perfect I almost cried. I had been using another printer and had always wasted so many icing sheets, trying to get the color adjusted that having the first sheet come out perfectly was amazing.
Summary: I'm a young photographer/graphic artist and up to this point I was getting by without a printer. Just didn't want to do my own printing and deal with hidden cost of ink and paper. After a while the thought of the convenience made me cave in. After giving it some consideration I couldn't decide between the ip4600 and the ip3600.
