Pros It prints quickly, and photos are beautiful. It is fairly compact and very quiet.
Cons PAPER FEED!!! The product simply won't take the paper in the tray and print it. I frequently have to jiggle the paper around before it feeds. Also, once it prints it does a very poor job keeping the papers in order.
Summary Had it for four years and never had a problem with it. Still prints like its brand new. And if you have trouble with the paper not being grabbed then lean the printer up against a wall.
Pros Fast printing initially, waste-ink reset code available
Cons Print head fails within a few months, requires slower printing for recognizable print-outs, uses a waste-ink pad, tends to cross-contaminate ink cartridges (Canon brand)
Summary For the first five months (apparently no warranty nor return), it made some descent print-outs for graphics and photos. Now, it prints everything in dark green while the cyan ink cartridge keeps running dry; the cyan ink finds its way to the other cartridges. Despite buying this printer new, I had to reset a "waste-ink" error (8 orange flashes) using a code found from searching the Internet (pressing the Reset button didn't clear the error). Also, I had to disassemble the printer to get to and clean the waste-ink pad. I don't understand how the pad became so saturated in such a short time period, after occasional use. Most of time, the print head was parked.
As if the printer didn't have enough problems, it also leaves streaks and white dots, even at the highest quality setting. I learned that the print head is not functioning correctly using the "nozzle check", and a replacement costs nearly the same amount as the printer. The print head didn't last five months.
In short, the Canon i850 is expensive for a disposable printer. I think I'll replace this with an Epson.
Pros Photos come out great and is easy to print when you use Canon easy photo software.
Cons I purchase ink refills and the print heads become clog sooner and need more deep cleaning cycles and wastes more of your precious ink. Printer lasted two years before it burn itself up and died. I printed about 50 pictures and 2000 text sheets and 25 birt
Pros The printer has excellent features for the intial price. Probably best for very low volume printing needs.
Cons This model seems to go through magenta ink fast --> even when printing black and white! I believe that the printer uses the magenta ink when cleaning the heads. The printer has an auto head cleaner process that uses ink to clead the permanent ink hea
