Ray, South London Frequent home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Neat and tidy, I bought this model to replace my IP4300 as I still want to print DVD Labels.
Bad points:
Very slow to start printing. It seems to pause and whirr and whirr before during and after printing. This happens a lot more than with my old IP4300. Also the ink tanks are much smaller than on the IP4300 and seem to run out very quickly - I worry about what is happening to my ink during the whirring! I do not think that this replacement is as good as my old Canon printer.

David, Godalming Frequent home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Print quality and ease of use.
Bad points:
High cost of Canon inks, made worse by the reduction of cartridge size from previous models. Can't therefore afford to stick with Canon inks, which is a shame.
