Excerpt: "== IMPULSE PURCHASE == Those of you who have read my previous reviews will know I act completely on impulse buying, in my business I am currently packaging around 10-15 parcels a week and decided it would be much more professional to have some pretty address stickers rather than my usual scrawl. I headed online to Argos to see how much they were and was pleasantly surprised. I tootled off to Argos on my lunch break and managed to pick one up for ...
Summary: I bought my Canon IP3600 a few months ago on eBay, not to be used for standard printing but for edible ink printed images. It came in a kit with inks, printer head and paper. I paid £84 for it, which for a printer is quite a lot I think but as an investment for my business, it was reasonable.
Summary: I bought one of these printers a few years ago, but I felt I had to write a review after witnessing how durable this printer really is. Ladies and Gentlemen this printer can apparently survive being thrown down a flight of stairs by a menopausal woman...twice. I could only look on in horror as my mum threw my beloved and (for me) expensive printer down the stairs and it burst open into four pieces.
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.
Canon Pixma iP3600: Does what it says on the box and no more
6 August 2011
Summary: 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.
Pros: Easy to use, cheap, good quality, reliable
Cons: Slow, lacks features, do you really only need the printer?
