      once again canon has nailed it, my ip4000 was just about worn out so i read up on the 4820. i knew it was good just by the brand. elegant, sleek, performance unexcelled. it is feature friendly, easy to use, beautiful in design, and performs as well as any printer i have seen. performs better than printers i have seen for 5 times the price. so if you want good quality look no further, CANON is the only way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Loved the printer - hated the photo prints. Every photo I printed had a distinct red cast. Photos were very susceptible to the ambient light casing color shifts. I know the color temperature of the light used to view things have have affect on the image but other photo prints from other printers did NOT have the large variation that the cannon did. I tried 3 brands of photo paper with the same result. Unfortunately I had to return the printer and I am now looking at other manufacturers. Sigh...It seems with ALL manufacturers we get more useless features but with less printer reliability and quality!

        Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

        I got this printer from Canon when my ip4000 died after years of great service. The 4820 produces surperior photos; but it has small expensive ink tanks that are also black. If you believe the screen menu; you are out of ink every two weeks. Actually; you can print till one or more colors streak. THEN you install the expensive little cartridge to replace it. This is strictly a photo printer; so don't expect to do any serious resumes on it

          I have had this printer for about a year now and pretty much like it except when starting up it takes a while for it to settle down and print and the ink cost is too high for the size of the ink tanks.

            Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

            This ia a great Printer. But Cannon messed it up on purpose making the INK Cartridges too small so they hold less INK. The cartridges are much smaller than in My last Cannon Printer a IP4500. They did not have do do this. They many plenty of money on regular size Ink cartridges.

                      Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

                      My one serious con is not being able to see the level of ink in a cartridge. Sometimes the sensors are incorrect and we loose the use of ink still in the cartridge. I would like to see that change. If the sensor is NOT working and it runs out of ink - how do I know? I put a small post-it note on the side of a cartridge and keep track of how often I have to change that cartridge. I record the date on the post-it. Once I figured out how to re work the paper trays and create my own preferences of printing - life was truly improved. This is a good machine. It's not flimsy like some I've seen. I've used these at work: I860, 4200, 4300 and a 4200 (5yrs) and now 4820 at home. I will certainly remain a Canon customer.

                        Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

                        I am a graphic artist who has owned many printers over the years. Canon photo printers have consistently been the best. Print quality of the 4820 is excellent (with good paper).. The printer driver interface is quite a bit better than the last version I used with the 4300, The change in the paper path that another reviewer spoke of is very annoying for those of us who have spent a lot of time setting up our last Canon printer for different types of paper. Also, unfortunately, the "Ink Wars" continue.. The wonderful transparent Canon cartridges are now solid black -- to make things more difficult for those of us who refill our own. Of course the Canon cartridges are very expensive and don't hold much ink. But when all is said and done, the 4820 is an excellent choice.

                        from Montana

                        Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

                        When my Pixma ip4300 died, I replaced it with an ip4820 Likes: Duplex printing without having to turn the pages is nice. Dislikes: The paper feed being under the paper output is inconvenient & difficult to access. I prefer the simpler design of all paper, envelopes & labels feeding from the back of the printer. Printing envelopes has become more complicated. The 4300 held the envelopes on the right & the 4820 centers them in the printer, which means that I have to redesign all my envelope graphics & labels so they line up. Frustrating. I would recommend this product to a friend, but with a warning & reservations.
