Summary: Bought this dedicated printer as a replacement for a Canon MP630 which gave up the ghost after some three years faithful service. My choice of brand and model was heavily influenced by the fact that I had a sizeable stock of unused ink cartridges for the MP630 and certainly didn't want to waste them given the respective costs of printer and consumables. My selection of the iP3600 has not disappointed. It arrived on Maunday Thursday - just four days after my order.
Summary: My previous printer, a Canon Pixma MP 560, stopped working with a hardware fault after 26 months domestic use, probably because the waste ink tank is full. It is barely worth getting an inexpensive printer repaired. I selected the iP3600 as a replacement because it received a good write-up in Which?, and I have a large stock of suitable ink cartridges.
doesn't print accurately on plain paper or card - Canon admit this

Summary: This printer cannot handle plain media. I bought it for greetings card printing to replace my iP1500. The iP1500 had better capability in terms of colour range on card, than the IP3600. I understand that this printer engine is the same as the newer Ip printers. I wrote to Canon about the printer turning out the same blue across an image which is a range of blues (torquoise through to ultramarine came out a splurged cobaltish range) and they said that the nozzle...
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.
