Summary: The Epson S21 printer I bought from Amazon a year ago was cheap but certainly not worth the money paid for it I should have sent it back and got my money back instead I scrapped it, How a firm with a reputation for quality could release such a printer is beyond belief. The Cannon pixma ip3600 printer cost me twice as much but seems to be four times better just on noise and ink useage alone it is early days but it looks as the Cannon is little gem and well worth the money...
A solid standard printer but don't regret not having a scanner later on

Excerpt: The Canon ip3600 is my first printer and by and large I'm very pleased with it. It is a budget option without the bells and whistles that more expensive models have - eg. wireless connectivity or a screen - and without additional functions like scanning or photocopying. However it is good at churning out colour and B&W sheets for most at-home users. Plus Points This printer was cheap when I got it 2 years ago and must be even less expensive now.
Summary: After much research I chose his printer to replace my trusty HP which had given many years of good service, but sadly would only print photos with an uneven border. This is great in comparison and produces excellent borderless prints. Ignore any coments about it being noisy, compared to my previous printer it is virtually silent! I also like the way everything is completely enclosed, including the paper, keeping the dust out.
Summary: I normally lack the motivation to write reviews BUT this is just such a good printer. Perhaps my level of amazement at how good it is is partly due to the fact that my previous printer was a pre-war Lexmark but - even so - I'm really struggling to think of a downside to this printer: it is VERY quick to print; it is quiet; the printing is really clear, even in 'quick' and 'normal modes'; and setting it up is ALMOST fun because everything fits together nicely and little...
Summary: I spent a long time trying to work out which printer to get to replace my trusty HP deskjet 6940. My 2 main requirements were that the colour quality was good and that I could print on 250gsm card without jams and other problems that I was beginning to face with my aged HP! After much research, I ordered the Canon ip3600 and am so pleased with it.
Summary: I purchased this printer as a backup to my regular Canon photo printer and although lacking the flexibility of that printer it has not disappointed with the quality of photo printing it returns. The photos are certainly of lab quality and are deivered in a very short space of time. The colour rendition is very accurate and the individual ink tanks deliver an amazing amount of prints before replacements are needed.
Summary: I obtained this printer as a replacement for an ip 4550 on which the on/off switch no longer functioned (a built in fault?). The new printer is much the same as my old 4550 so I knew what to expect, the only MAJOR disappointment is that the cartridges hold a much lower volume of ink therefore my running costs are going to be considerably higher.
Not a bad budget printer, but build quality could be improved

Excerpt: Now to pay a visit to the Canon IP3600. This is a 'no-frills' budget printer, having no wireless, scanner or copier functions. Originally, RRP was £80 but can now be picked up for as little as £60. Very much an entry level printer, but with the added benefit of being economical through its use of 5 ink tanks like the more expensive ranges.
Summary: I recently had cause to replace my printer, as the old Epson had a clogged up print head. This problem I was unable to resolve, so a new machine became a necessity.After a deal of comparing various brands, I chose the Canon. This has proved to be very reliable, and the print quality is excellent.
