    I purchased this printer to replace a Canon iP5300, 4 years old and dead as a doornail, after some pretty heavy use. I use it to print photos for display and competition, the Canon Pixma printers get excellent reviews for this (from Which?) and I concur, but this one is a step above for depth of colour and clarity of print, even compared to the 5300, the print is excellent. Printed a 10x8 inch from the Cycling tour of Britain - Rabobank team do orange and purple to give the printer a good workout, colours and definition fantastic, as is the overall "life" in the picture.

    The one weakness of the 5300, for me, was that text printing tended to be a bit light compared to other printers I have used, no such problems with this one, the text is clear and a definite black, up to the office Laser printer for my money. I will always prefer a good photo printer and a good photo scanner to a reasonable all in one (but then I scan transparency and full photos, so perhaps it is me!). If you want lab-like film-like quality in your photo prints and a good solid text print this is the way to go!

    I purchased the ip4950 a few weeks ago now, and to be honest, I can't say a massive amount positive about it. Ok, the print quality is still better that you would get with most other printers (Epson for example) and I expect the reliability will be also. But that's where the benefits end.

    My previous printer, an iP4500, the predecessor to this printer from 4-5 years ago, finally gave up on me due to a broken printhead or some other issue. It is a shame, because compared to the iP4500, the 4950:
    -Drinks ink like its going out of style
    -Makes more noise from the rollers
    -Takes seemingly forever to start a print job
    -Does not appear to offer an increase in print quality

    So, what have Canon R&D been up to the past half-decade? Any ideas?

    This printer was easy to set up and gives excellent results. The 5 colour cartridges are easy to replace and photo prints are sharp. The IP4950 replaces my previous IP4500 which gave long and trouble free service.
    Swift delivery by Amazon.

    For the last four or five years I have been using a (now discontinued) Canon Pixma iP4300 for full colour glossy A4 prints and printing directly onto discs. I arrived at the iP4300 after going through three awful Epsom printers within six months. It's been the best piece of kit I've ever owned. Reliable, cheap to run, superb results and proof that Canon are capable of manufacturing a little gem. Lately, after heavy use over the years it has sadly started to wear out and develop problems so I had to change it. I researched various other Canon models and settled on the iP4950 which I've been using for a week. What a disappointment.

    I've deducted three stars from my rating for three very good reasons. Firstly, the ink tanks are half the capacity of the ones in the iP4300 (my benchmark printer to be clear), so, twice as much replacing and considerably more expense. Printer ink is the second most expensive liquid on the planet (after rattlesnake venom!) so to be forced into paying even more for it is a bitter pill to swallow. One star dropped.

    Star two goes on account of the pinch rollers being too tight on this model, resulting in very noticible horizontal gouges on all prints to 135gsm (or above) glossy paper. Yes, it's that bad.

    Third star goes due to the poor user-friendliness. On the iP4300 to print to disc you simply drop the front panel and the flap for the disc holder and off you go. On the iP4950 you have to close the flap, hit print, wait 15 seconds for the thing to sort itself out, drop the flap and then continue printing. Every single time. Time-consuming and frustrating.

    excellent printer that does everything the advert says it does. Switches off to save energy which takes time to get used to. Nice colour black!

    Performance is great, but once the ink absorber is full, I was into disaster
    and the replacement/repair requires transporting it to Canon at Woking where a charge of £80 is imposed to repair - much cheaper to throw it away and buy a new printer.

    What a rip off!

    Delighted with the iP4950, arrived next day & easy to set up. Very disappointed to find it came with compatible ink cartridges, not genuine Canon inks. This was not stated in the sales info and I believe it should have been. I know it was supplied by UK Compatible Ink but I expected Canon to supply their inks with a new machine.
