Bad: Colour accuracy
Comment: Despite much experimentation and tweaking, I cannot get colours to reproduce accurately. This is fundamental when printing artwork, photos, posters etc ...
Comment: great printer, unless u care about good print reproduction. color sux. prints too dark and without contrast. corresponded with canon tecs for 6 months before they finally gaved up. the printer just doesnt cut it. if u want more than a 3rd rate printer, buy something else. u'd think they would mention the print quality is worthless in review.
Good: Great print outs withh ciss sytems!
Bad: Decides to go on long noisy wobblies every now and then while you're wating to print.
Comment: Had mine for 9 months now and it works just great. I'm using refillable cartridges which great cuts down on the running costs.
I've only just realised why there are two black cartridges - DOH!
Nobody told me, lol!
One is pigment for document printing the other is dye based for photos. Lucky for me I chose the dye based one first which I used to fill both cartridges. Doesn't seem to have made any difference, though. I don't print a lot of documents anyway.
Good: Great photo printer.
Bad: Nothing so far.
Comment: I have a Kodak hero 7.1 for general printing and scanning and I only got the Canon for printing photo,s ,this it does very well. I printed a photo on both the kodak and the canon and boy what a difference canon wins hands down, Very pleased with printer.
