    Second Best Printer I Ever Had

    This printer is so good that it is difficult to know where to begin my accolades. It is a lot smaller than I expected, even a lot shorter in height than standard printers. Of course, its footprint is larger than a regular printer, but not by much. It is mainly a little wider than a regular printer. I'm really impressed how diminutive it appears. Canon's engineers did an excellent design job on this printer. Setup was very easy. I used the WPS button on my wireless router and it linked almost instantly. At first I thought it must not have worked because it happened so quickly. I did not connect it via a USB cable. I'm not much of a fan of the junky L shaped desktop icon - uses up a lot of space with several icons of dubious value. I may delete it later. You are limited to only one paper size at a time, but that's not such a big deal considering the range of print sizes you can create. I printed a 4X6 inch print, an 8.5X11 and 13X19 inch prints. That's pretty much the spectrum of what you would normally print. It is a surprisingly fast printer. It isn't an all-in-one printer; it's just a printer - no scanner, no fax and no copy capability. I realize this is advertised to only be a business printer insinuating its photo capabilities to be perhaps at best average. But I still wanted to determine the limitations of its photo printing capability. I already own a Canon Pro-100 and the Canon Pro-9000 Mark II printer that print 13X19 photo prints, so I wasn't expecting this 5 ink printer's photo capability to be in the same league. And in some cases it isn't - it's even better than my two other photo printers for richness of colors. That doesn't mean it faithfully reproduces the original image, but it does produce very pleasing photos where fine color accuracy isn't a terribly important objective. Paper type makes a huge difference no matter which printer you are using. The paper is as important as the ink in many situations. I really didn't want to print several duplicate 13X19 prints, but that was the only way to do a direct and fair comparison. As you would expect, the Pro-100 is clearly much better for faithful reproductions of portraits of people where skin tone and texture matter - especially on a large 13X19 inch print. However, if you didn't have a direct comparison print from a Canon Pro-100, you would still say that's a really good print. I printed several prints of scenery and historical buildings and I thought this office printer's prints actually looked better than the Canon Pro-100 printer in terms of color saturation and richness of color.

    SO FAR pretty good, but NOT great

    After many years of buying Epson or HP printers, I finally tried a Canon iP5000. I LOVED it. When it died abruptly, I was up the proverbial creek. I tried to go inexpensive and bought a Canon iP7220. I do NOT need or want an "all-in-one" but I do want/need a printer that, on occasion, can do a quality photo. The iP7220 would NOT print an envelope correctly no matter what I tried; it also has other failings like a tiny paper drawer. I returned it and bought this model at approximately 2.5 x the cost. The iX6820 has the rear paper feed that I prefer and will hold, I think, up to 250 sheets in reserve. I am TROUBLED by the way you print envelopes, but it appears to be fairly standard these days. You must REMOVE all the paper in the feed slot. Insert the envelope in the feeder more or less centered. MOVE the paper alignment holders to center the envelope and print. THEN you must realign the paper guides and reload your regular paper. WHAT A PIA! Once we got the printer installed on my wife's laptop and signed into our house wifi (this took a bit of doing), it works beautifully in wireless mode! I can't tell if this one sucks up ink quite yet. I will revise my review when I have some observations on that subject. I understand that this printer WILL accommodate 11x14 or larger photo paper. That is an exciting possibility! Note that this printer has a large footprint.

    Excellent printer for medium format printing

    I purchased this printer to replace a earlier generation HP medium format printer. I compared several Medium format brands and models. I read reviews and compared features. This printer has met or exceeded all of my expectations. I am an Architect who frequently uses a 36"X24" format. I PDF my drawing files and then print them at 50% scale, resulting in an 18"X12" format. This size is much easier to take to meetings and is more convenient to keep around the office. This printer produces highly accurate prints with a mix of fine line work, screens, graytone, halftone and full color images all on one sheet. The output speed is very good. I have produced several full color glossy prints which are well rendered and have very good color reproduction. Excellent covers for reports and marketing materials. The machine is normally displayed in the closed position. During operation the rear (input) tray will need to be extended and the front (output) tray will need to be extended. Opening the trays during printing will require a space of about 10"-12" behind the printer and 8"-10" in front of the paper. When finished simply fold in the trays and the printer is very compact and attractive. I keep my unit closed when it is not in operation to keep out dust and foreign objects. Overall I give the printer 5 stars.

    Great printer for thick stock paper/cards.

    I only bought this printer for one purpose, to address advertising post cards I get from my commercial printing house. Commercial mailing houses use super fast inkjets that cost thousands of dollars to address mailers/postcards. This printer works perfectly fine for that, and it's fairly fast to boot. The printer has a fairly straight print path, from the flip up tray on the rear of the printer to the output tray in the front. It fed through postcards printed on 14 point (about equal to 114 pound index stock) cardstock just fine. I think the fact that this can print on 13x19 inch paper, they built in a more robust feeding system, which handles the postcards without any misfeeds at all! The ink dries within 20 minutes. I'm happy with this printer for the purpose that I'm using it for. Most commercial mail houses charge around 8 to 10 cents a postcard address, and I've already run through 700 postcards, so 2 more mailings of 700 cards, and the printer has paid off for itself!

    Great update to my older PIXMA printer

    I actually bought a different model PIXMA first, based on a “Best AirPrint Printers of 2018” article, but it turned out to be wrong for my situation in several different ways. After a bit of research, I found this model which uses the same size ink cartridges, fits in my space, has better documentation, and works flawlessly (so far) with my home WiFi. Additionally it prints much more quickly and quietly than the 8 year old printer it is replacing. And it prints two-sided through some magic of paper feeding that I can’t quite figure out. I have not yet used the scan or copy functions, or printed any photos, to judge quality in those other areas. But for solid printer functionality over a WiFi network, this is a great printer at a good price.

    Goodbye HP, Hello Canon

    Posted

    After having problems with my hp printer - printing with streaks and printing askew, then replacing it with another hp printer that had to be returned for printing with dots, I gave up on hp and bought the Canon. My only complaint about the Canon is that the colors aren't quite as saturated as with my hp envy. There is the option of adjusting the colors and brightness so it seems to take a few trys with the Canon to get it right (for photos).. Other than that it prints photos beautifully. Also there is the option of printing large. The inks seem to last a little longer than the hp printer. For the price it's a great printer. Best Buy has a ship free next day on inks so I've started using that service and am really happy about that.

    Does it's job.. very heavy ink drinker

    I purchased the printer because I needed an inkjet printer with high definition prints that printed in larger formats than 8 1/2 x 11. This machine does 14 x 19.. which is the largest I could find at the time. I use the printer to make High Quality Photographic Negatives for Contact Exposures for Ageotype, Ambrotype, Cyanotype, Platinum, and Carbon Transfer Printing of photos. It does pretty good.. but I'd prefer that it allow hi def printing at the larger print sizes. It also drinks thru the cartridges like a two fisted drinker at a bar. Two complete sets of new cartridges costs as much as the printer.. I've been living at Cartridge World as the six cartridges the machine comes with are half filled. I'd love for a printer to be made that you can fill with ink like the commercial models.

    Simple and fast printing

    Easy to set up. Easy to install software. I liked the led lights on the ink cartridges that light when inserted properly. I set the printer to grey scale as I use it only to print tabloid sized architectural / construction plans. The top feeding paper path works perfectly every time with excellent detail accuracy for auto-cad engineering plans. Startup time and print output is fast. The printer shuts off after factory set inactivity timeout. The power button must be manually pressed to restart the printer. Large but lightweight with a sleek modern look for an oversize paper printer.
