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!

Almost perfect printer

By 

from Out west

Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

I agree with CBphoto. This printer was great, except it didn't last too long. However I would buy another one if I could find one. I do a lot of photo printing and also printed DVD's. The quality was superb. I think they build in obsolescence. Does anyone know of a printer that prints on DVD's? You know it really throws you off kilter when you find something you love, loose it and cant replace it. What's a body to do?

Great until it breaks

By 

from CABIN JOHN

Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

Great printer for printing photos, but like all the Canon printers I have ever bought, lasts less than two years. And I do not use it all that much. I keep buying the Canons because they are cheap and print so beautifully, but I am starting to feel guilty about the landfills filled with my old Canon printers.

      Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

      I have owned several of these printers and they have been incredibly reliable and workhorses. The print quality is excellent, and the rear feed provides lots of printing options for custom sizes. It's been an excellent photo printer for both business and personal use. Sadly, canon has discontinued it and the replacement printer does not have a rear feed, making it unusable for my needs. I owned (8) 4500s, (4) 4700s, and (4) 4920s and they were all wonderful printers! With the new models and lack of rear feed I am not sure what I will do now.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

          This printer replaced an IP4700. Excluding to the time necessary to adjust the printhead, it took 10 minutes to unpack and have running. It uses IJ color profiles; therefore, I didn't have to recalibrate my photo or publishing software for this printer to match the monitor. WYSIWYG I was already familiar with the paper settings and the output is consistent with my other Canon printers. I own 5 printers, including 2 other brands. I only use the Canons, though. I have found throughout the years that Canons do not guzzle ink the way the other brands do. I 'm hoping the same is true of this printer.

              I use a color calibrated monitor, and this printer matches the colors perfectly. It's low cost makes it very attractive. The only question I have is the amount of colored ink it used when mostly printing in black text.

                  The Canon PIXMA iP4920 is the best printer I have used. As a retired graphic designer, I do a lot of volunteer work that requires a lot of color printing. This printer always prints beautifully and is very reliable. It is easy to set up and loads the paper without any problems. The ink cartridges are very easy to replace and they light up telling which one needs to be. Ink also last a long time with this printer. I could not be more happy with this printer and would highly recommend it to anyone.

                      I have used Canon Ip Pixma printers in the past and have had great success with all. I bought 3 of the 4920 printers and have nothing but trouble. Two of them had faulty printheads and I had to purchase new ones. Then, one of the printers developed a problem with the paper rollers and would not connect with the paper. The color does not match what is one the screen. Canon this printer needs work!

                        In 20 years of using Canon printers this iP4920 is the first that I have not been very pleased with. Try as I might I have found no way to get print color any where near to matching screen color. None of the color adjustments in the Canon PhotoPrintEX program will properly do the job.

                        Comments about Canon PIXMA Black Photo Printer:

                        I have had my Canon Pixma iP4500 for about 4 years. It has been an excellent printer, so when the need arose for an additional printer I immediately considered the Pixma iP4920. Never in that time was there ever a need to use the paper cartridge (front loading device). Yet, when printing the Print Head Alignment for the iP4920, it requires paper be loaded in the front cartridge. This is unacceptable. The cartridge extends too far out from the front of the printer to be useful. If Canon were to have changed the requirement for the Print Head Alignment, it should have given the user AN OPTION. I can only hope the other features of this fine line of printers have not been compromised as well.

                          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
