I bought it had it less that 18 months then error 6500 showed up would cost almost £60 to repair. For me I would not recommend it plus it needs 5 inks. (read more)

Leaving regular paper in the lower tray means the printer is always ready. The upper tray can then be used for special papers at the flick of a switch. It is very convenient and the trays all close keeping the printer clean.
If the Canon software and correct papers are used, photo quality is excellent. (read more)

This is a good quality, good looking printer that provides very good output. For the price I would be surprised if there is anything out there as good. Shame about the high cost of ink. (read more)

Good value for money I am not sorry I brought one it has a few extras that the other manufacturers would charge a bit more for without giving up a very nice finish.
I am using non canon inks and still achieving decent results works out at less than half the price canon want and fortunately the desire to print on every CD you make wears off and makes it even cheaper. (read more)

For the money it is hard to believe the quality and performance of the Canon Pixma iP4200 printer. Unlike other peoples reports I have actually managed to buy alternative ink products for back up, but as of yet not tried them, although I have every confidence they will work. The only issue I have been told I will have with them is, warning lights when the cartridge is empty will not light, so I will have to rely on visual inspection.
The crazy thing is, if you were to buy the full set of 5... (read more)

It would not be worth it for many, as it is more than triple the cost of starting ink jet printers, with not too many features, but it's build is quite strong and it will last for a long time.
I use the Canon Pixma iP4200 inkjet printer to print on sticker labels, and it quite often doesn't accept the paper from the manual feed, whereas cassette works fine (I guess the manual feed pulling force is not enough). I print about 5000 - 10000 sheets per month, and I bought this printer because... (read more)

This Canon Pixma iP4200 is the best printer I have ever owned, I have had Lexmark, HP and Epson printers in the past and been disappointed with them all for various reasons, when my last printer died, I went for this one, partly because of good reviews and partly for a new brand.
I have been incredibly impressed. The print quality is amazing, and I think that is the most important thing with a printer. Photos come out perfect, very bright and very clear, and I printed some application... (read more)

The CD printing on the Canon Pixma iP4200 inkjet printer is a good feature, and also the two paper feeds, but I found when printing Black & White photo's that there is a slight pink tint.
My son has an IP4000, and I tried to get one too, but it has been replaced by the IP4200. Thinking they were much the same I bought one, only to find that when I need to replace the ink, it will cost me £50 (no compatible available).
I moved from Epson because they are taking manufactures to court for... (read more)

I can't believe how impressed I am with the Canon Pixma iP4200 printer!
The letters and presentations are laser-quality.
I compared 4x6 photos on this printer to the Kodak Printer Dock 3, and the Canon 4200 photo's were sharper, more vivid, and without any flaws.
This printer is quiet and fast, although at the highest photo quality setting it takes about 90 seconds for 8.5x11 prints.
Absolutely the only drawback to this printer is if you don't have time to let the glossy photo prints... (read more)
