Summary: This is a nice little personal photo printer, that is inexpensive and easy to use. The Canon paper is already cut to size, and does not need excessive drying time. Colors are crisp, clear and vibrant and are meant to last a long time. Set up instructions could have been more descriptive, and less fragmented especially where installation of the ink head and cartridges are concerned.
Pros: Compact Design, Durable construction, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time
Summary: I bought this printer to use for text only and it prints out beautifully.I may use for photos at some point and time but the price point on this is excellent for whatever your needs.I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
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 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: Another lemon for me. After dumping my Lexmark X7170 and Kodak ESP5 printers for various problems, I decided to try Canon b/c of the great reputation Canon has. Big mistake. First, unpacking is a bear. The instructions are broken up into 1 main manual, and multiple smaller quick-start type of instructions. These quick-start things are everywhere. Just when you think you are done, you find another taped into the most obscure places.
Summary: I read all the reviews on this printer and decided it would be a good choice for me. I ordered it new from the Amazon supplier on 6/9. It was shipped 6/11 and just arrived tonight, 6/17. It seems like a long time to me but maybe that's cuz i was waiting for it. BUT, I haven't even opened it yet and am having doubts. I have a MacBook with Leopard and saw that someone posted that it was a breeze setting it up with OS X.
Summary: We were disappointed that the printer wouldn't paper feed. (This happened on a newer version Canon I had.) I bought this for my 91 year old computer savy mother. Big disappointment! I paid someone to install it for her, but the printer didn't work. Buying this as a gift makes returns a nightmare. We're wondering how we get the return label printed out and the box back to Amazon. I like Canon's so I'm ordering another one to replace this one.
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 LOVE this printer! It was, with the HELP of my husband, easy to set up. Had I taken the time to REALLY read the manual, I would've been able to set it up myself. (This isn't my first Canon printer!) I didn't wish to take the time -- MY FAULT! (My husband is, also, impressed with this printer, and he knows LESS about computers and printers than I do!!) Also, it was inexpensive. I paid $67 minus Amazon's FREE shipping & handling.
