Pros Excellent Color, Low Cost, Many Features
Cons There are no cons from me yet...
Summary This printer has 6 individual ink tanks, so that when one runs low you don't have to go out and buy some big honking ink tank that costs $50. The print head is seperate from the printer so if it evers needs replacing you just take it out and replace it with a new one. The printer works from your memory card or direct print camera or even IR enabled cell phones.
There are two paper paths and a paper cassette. It took me less than 15 minutes to unpack, configure and print. I printed directly off my CF card and the results were excellent. Speed was excellent and the printer was very quiet.
I have two other photo printers (HP & Sony) and I am very impressed with the build quality and output of this printer. If you are looking for a printer that is easy to configure, low cost with great output, I'm sure you'll like this printer.Updated
I printed out several 4x6 prints and left them out on the table for my wife. My wife who is ultra critical of photo quality would be a good test subject. After she looked at them, she asked me what I had done to improve the photo's so much. "These look just like photo lab prints" was her comment.
I have had no problems at all with the printer and the print quality is better than my Sony die-sub at a much cheaper cost per print.
Pros Good print speed and duel tray
Cons Streaking in pictures, 4x6 output isn't always straight on boaderless printing.
Summary All of my photos that are printed come out cocked/skewed or have streaks at the last inch. The first 85% of the photo looks superb, but that last 15% looks like poop. My old BJC-8200 did a much, MUCH better job and I expected this upgrade to do the same. I am HUGELY disappointed by Canon on this one. BTW, Canon recognized the streaking on their website, but let me tell you, the fix hasn't worked for me. I use only Canon ink and Canon Photo paper Pro. I'm not some computer novice, I've been using their printers for over 7 years. I'm so mad about this printer that I've been thinking about just thowing it away and getting one from HP or Epson.
Pros Print quality is excellent when the printhead is not malfunctioning.
Cons I have had 2 iP6000D printers that stopped printing within one week of use. The photo magenta pringting is not reliable.
Summary My i960 was excellent. This printer has been nothing but a hassle. I think that when Canon changed the i960 to the iP6000D, something sure got lost in the upgrade.Each time the printer malfunctioned on the Photo Magenta. There was no color, or if you cleaned nozzles, would print out test okay, and then not print at all on full paper printing.
Pros Business-like shape & size; color scheme contemporary; print very quiet; speed reasonable. Duplex printing is interesting feature. Supplied driver is option-rich. Supplied mem card utility is simple but convenient. Flip-up LCD is cute but usable.
Cons Although the printing cycle is very quiet, the cassette feed mechanism sounds like a Pratt&Whitney firing up. However, the real Con is: A magenta cast to all photos (digital camera or scanned). I've tweaked photoshop profiles, the printer driver pr
Pros If you're patient and shop studiously, you should be able to get this printer at a decent price. Above average color for documents and text.
Cons ALL my photos came up with a very strong reddish/pinkish hue. Color, in general, isn't as true-to-life as HP. I recently bought both the HP PhotoSmart 7960 and 8450, and they are incredibly superior to the Pixma i6000D.
