Colin, Manchester Frequent home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Simple to set up. Very easy to use. Excellent print quality, even though it does state in the manual that prints should be made directly from the camera or memory card, I have found, contrary to what the manual states, that prints from edited shots taken off the computer are excellent.
Bad points:
Just one minor point and that is that the supplied accessories, ie paper tray and power unit are supplied only in white even though purchased the black model. This is a deliberate policy by Canon, not a mistake by the retailer though realising that fact takes some detective work.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Size
Print quality
Ease of use
Multiple interfaces
Bad points:
Cropping to 6x4 in MS picture manager didn't match the 6x4 printed. You need to allow a border and a bit of experimentation required.
Shame the printer's black but the paper tray and power supply are white.

Nigel, Oxford Area Frequent home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Produces Excellent quality 6" x 4" prints. Also, with this type of printer, you know exactly where you are with printing costs, since a pack of consumables includes all the necessary to produce 36 prints, whereas with ink-jet, the cost depended on many factors, such as colour density, print size, etc.
Bad points:
There have been no problems with the printer thus-far, I have been using it for about 2 months successfully, and gone through about 2 x 36 print packs of consumables. The reason for purchase was to replace a similar printer by a competitor which, whilst producing equivalent results, was unsuitable for use with windows 7 64 bit O/S, due to non-availability of drivers & utilty software. One minor point: the Photos produced are in fact slightly shorter than 6" in length, presumably to enable the use of metric paper stock.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
i had this printer as a gift for christmas and absolutely love it.it is small enough to put in the cupboard and not waste space on a desk collecting dust,but at the same time producing excellent pictures.
Bad points:
the viewing window is still quite small and sometimes hard to select the best picture with but apart from that i would highly recommend this product.
