Suggest anyone contemplating buying this Canon S820 printer looks first at the review pages.After about 15 months print quality deteriorated rapidly leaving lines across all dark colours.

The Canon S820 is an excellent printer until you fill the ink reservoir tank (about 12 months of light home use), then you have to return it to base for the reservoir to be emptied, which costs about £60! (read more)

The Canon S820 is an excellent entry level inkjet photo printer giving high quality photo prints on a range of photo papers, even supermarket own brand.
Very hard to tell the difference between these and normal (silver halide) prints.
Very easy to set up and use. Driver has a number of good features including auto image preview.
Speed of b&w printing not exceptional but acceptable.
Highly recommended. (read more)

Bought this canon S820 inkjet printer just a week ago.
Came with French manual (Price £60 less than in GB) Just using pictures in manual I set it up and had a test page printed in under half hour.
Ran a 4X6 borderless print off on photo pro paper supplied. I was quite amazed at the results - hard to tell from a shop print. Then tried on HP photo paper and again very good.
Quiet and quick and added advantage of separate ink wells.
Recommend to anyone wanting a good photo printer. (read more)
