Great printer! (one reservation)
I've been using my iX6520 for about a month now (I purchased it to replace my aging iP3000 and expand -- literally -- my printing capabilities). The printer is gorgeous (I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder) and seems very well made (heavy-duty plastic used throughout compared to the iP3000s of which I've owned a number). The printer is fast, paper handling seems great, and the quality for text, graphics, and photos it excellent. Very well done, Canon! Now for my complaint: This is a ...View full Review

Now for my complaint: This is a large-format printer, so can be expected to use quite a bit of ink. Unfortunately, the cartridges are small. I know Canon has to make their money somewhere, but the discrepancy in this printer is obvious and (to me) disturbing. Some heavier-duty desktop inkjets have high-capacity, remotely located ink tanks feeding ink to the print heads via tubing and that is exactly what a printer of this size should employ. I really wish Canon (and all inkjet manufacturers) would do the right thing and make their built-in inking systems economical and appropriate to the task at hand.

What a disappointment
I ordered this on line from a shop that carried this . I received it on December the 6th . Printed up 20 of the 11x14 photos. They looked awesome . Today January the 1st I went to print up some smaller ones and the printer keeps flashing the blue and orange lights with ink running low. It will not center so that I can change them i had to physically move the head in the center to change all of the inks . Now they wont light up to show they are installed .

The printer worked great for about a year, but now I keep getting a small white border at the right and bottom of photos I print. I use this printer almost exclusively for photo printing and this misalignment makes it so I have to crop my photos down. I've tried cleaning the printer rollers and align the print head to no avail. I'm not sure why this problem suddenly arose, and I cannot find a solutionÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
I'm a graphic design student and wanted an all-purpose printer to use during school. My main concern was when printing images I needed quality and color-matching, and this printer is great. I also love the ability to print on various page sizes, but for the price it would be amazing to have a scanner or Wi-Fi capabilities for sending print jobs. Be sure you do not want those extra features.. otherwise it is a great buy for students and casual use/photo printing.
1. This printer absolutely will not make a decent print on anything except photo paper. Of course I'm a graphic designer so decent means something different to me than to an average user. It makes beautiful graphic prints on photo paper, so my portfolio looks fabulous but I cannot print on any kind of cardstock; it absolutely will not print well. So my Christmas cards look bad. 2. Also, it refuses to print envelopes; they always feed crooked. I have to print about ten to get just one to look decent. 3. I have had instances where the color will suddenly print wrong. I was printing a portfolio the night before a job interview and it suddenly refused to print high quality, and everything was purple. Thankfully I had a backup, but it's unreliable. 4. The print head will also skip around if there is a misfeed and you risk it coming off track and needing service. 5. Uses A LOT of ink. 6. The print driver will not allow you to add custom print sizes in some programs, including Adobe InDesign. In all, the print quality is excellent if you only need simple paper prints. If you are a designer and need more options, look elsewhere.
Well, to start with I found this printer on-line to replace a 6 yr old Canon iP6700 photo printer that died due to a surge. The iX worked for 8 days then quite connecting with the computer. The USB port on the printer is defective. Otherwise, it's a really nice printer when it first arrived.
The eye piercing blue LED is a big distraction. They should've done red or green for a power on indicator.
I wanted a no frills basic printer, as I print a lot of photos. This one is very good. Prints fast with excellent results, though I have not had need to try printing in oversized formats as of yet. The one complaint is that this is an ink hog. The canisters are very small and thus run out very quickly. The expense adds up very quickly. I've had to do basic printing in B&W from an old Canon unit and it still feels like this one sops up the ink incredibly fast. If you only print sporadically it will be fine. Just be aware of the ink expense.
It prints beautiful pictured. I bought the printer mainly to use with the KopyKake edible ink to print out pictures for cake. So far I have had no problems and the edible prints turns out wonderful. It is one that is recommended by KopyKake. The price was reasonable after looking at some that were so much more! It was delivered on time and easy to set up. I live on the West Coast so it had to be ship across the County but came in one piece perfectly.
Pictures are beautiful.
I like ix6520 in photography the resolution is good. The printer get my work done. The printer is the up dated model I used to have the Canon IP4200.
I love this printer. I'm trying to fix it's tendency to print red tones, but that may be due to my software. I'm confident I can resolve the problem.
