Summary: My old Canon printer at work gave up and died. No one locally works on Mac compatible anything so repairing it wasn't an option. I bought this printer because it was next to impossible to find one for my older Mac. I especially couldn't buy a printer locally that was capatible. I called Canon and their tech support people suggested this one.
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 purchased this printer at a local office supply store as the price was lower then buying ink to refill my several years old Canon i860 photo printer. Wow, this printer is amazing the detail is superb. Prints from the iP3600 and a calibrated monitor are better then what I get from uploading prints to my local mini-lab. The only suggestion I would make is to be sure you download the newest drivers from Canon.
Summary: I bought this printer for my husband and ended up giving it to my daughter for Mother's Day and ordering another one for my husband. My daughter loves this printer. The photos it prints are just as good as the professional ones made at a store. Colors very vibrant and the printing program on the CD makes it very easy to make photos just the way you want. The best part is the ink dispensing technology.
Summary: I have nothing but great things to say about this printer. I have used a wide variety of printers, especially since I work in the IT field. I have personally owned Epson printers and HP printers prior to purchasing this printer. I really liked the last Epson I had, but it sat dormant for so long I was afraid I would spend $50 in ink only to find out that the printhead was clogged and that I would need to buy a new printer.
Summary: I purchased this printer to accomodate all of our printing needs for the family. Regular reports and text print perfectly, but the picture quality is where this printer is worth every penny. I needed a printer that could print photo quality pictures for my projects at home. They come out looking as good as (or sometimes better than) pictures I have picked up from a lab.
