"Great Bang for the Buck"4.5 starson by harryhide
Pros: Fast print speeds,great photo prints,duplex printing
Cons: None that I found
Summary: This is my second Canon printer. I had a Canon I900D which was a great printer but alas it was very slow. The IP 4500 has two paper sources, one for copy paper and one for photo paper. This is a great plus. All you have to do to change sources is press 1 button. I can't understand the CNET review. They rated as a con no preview LCD or memory slots. I have had 2 photo printers previously that had those features and I never used either one. To me that is just a feature that adds to the cost of the printer. And CNET also stated "The Canon Pixma iP4500 is a bit too expensive for basic home users". What was she smoking! This printer sell for just over $100.00 .. As the previous reviewer did, I printed out several photo's that were printed at my local Sam's Club and compared them with the same that I printed on the IP 4500. They were equally as good maybe even a bit better. Bottom line if you are looking for a good photo printer and don't want a copier or a fax you can't go wrong with the Canon IP 4500. Now, why a 9 rating? Because nothing is perfect, but this is close.
