I am a Canon junky. I have not had trouble with printers, ink or paper. Costs more but trouble free. Now for this printer. You can print on DVDs which is easy and with included softwre can be creative. Cartridges are larger than normal but can be purchased with extra ink. Machine is fast not noisy nd prints beautifully. Ink comes with machine but doesn't last long. Order ink in advance an d have on hand. Machine is large so make room for it. Canon included software is getting better and is now very useful.

I was very excited to get this printer. My husband has used Canon for years and we purchased an i3 a year ago and were very pleased. But this printer has been a disappointment. Not very good set up instructions to start with but was fairly easy to figure out. Started off great but then started eating paper and pulling in paper crooked and ripping inside of printer. Very quiet and quality is awesome when working correctly. Easy return and very nice and helpful call in return. I will try again for another one but for now disappointed.

Love this printer!
By Carl 49
from Austin, TX
Bought 4 months ago. I love the way the ink tanks are configured! The Black Pigment cartridge is strictly for Text. The printer is smart enough to know when to use it. That saves the Black Dye (photo) ink. Each color is replaced individually, as needed, saving money. All 6 of the ink tanks can use a regular size or an XL (extra capacity) size. The ink goes a long way compared to my previous HP printer and the photos look great. I also love the way the ink cartridges have an LED that flashes when it needs to be replaced, so you easily find and replace the correct cartridge. A steady light means it is working correctly. I don't print borderles, so I can't comment on that, but I do print 13 x 17 format and have had no problems. I don't use any of the wireless capability either, might someday. Love it, love it, love it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Primary Printer
from El Cajon, CA
I bought this printer to serve as a support and subsequently replacement for my old inkjet printer. This has worked so well that my old inkjet printer has been boxed up for recycling. This is now my one only printer and it is, up to this point, an excellent primary printer. The colors are beautiful and my clients like the results as well. Perhaps later this year, I get another one to add as a support and backup printer.

The Canon Pixma iP8720 is an ideal printer for the serious amateur or professional. Images are very professional looking and rival those of a photo lab print. Installation and operation are very straight forward. Wireless works as advertised. This is a extremely good buy for the investment. As with all printers the original ink supplied with the printer does not last long. However, the quality is worth it.
from mountains of Colorado
I purchased the Canon IP8720 when my previous Canon printer started to fail. I contacted Canon directly, and their representative was very helpful, listening to what I wanted and sending me in the right direction. The order department was also helpful, and I received my new Canon printer PLUS many bonuses, in record time. The speed is great and the quality so much better than my previous printer, especially for photographs. Very happy with the printer AND with Canon!
from Orlando, FL
I got this for crafting and very impressed with image quality. It is a great printer, and I can even print off my iPad and iPhone! Super easy to use and install and so glad I upgraded to this so I can print larger size prints for projects for all the DIY projects I've pinned on Pinterest! Love, love, love!
My old PhotoPrinter (Which I liked)quit on me. I started reading printer reviews. I decided to get this one because the price was reasonable ,and I like the fact it used multiple cartridges to print. photo's . I tested it by printing 4x6's, and 8x10's. and text.I didn't try any larger prints but the fact it can do larger prints is a plus. The print quality was great I'm very satisfied with the printer. It's easy to install I just installed the software and plugged it into my USB port. Some of the software doesn't work like Image Garden. But since I use a photo program I really didn't care. It definitly does what I bought it for to print photo's and text when needed. Great printer!
Excellent photo printer
Excellent, very user friendly, printer. Set up with wifi in no time at all ( I am not computer set up savy). The pictures are beyond fabulous. Worth every penny. Going to use it to make Christmas gifts!!!

So far, so good...
from Franklin, TN
Bought this as a replacement for an older Canon that started leaking black ink. It was time to go. I wanted a good photo-quality printer first. I also do everyday printing (emails, articles, etc.). This thing does not disappoint. The photos are beautiful. I have one picture of my grandchildren in the ocean. They are wearing bright orange shirts/trunks. It's beautiful. No running between the orange and the aqua and the white. Very crisp all around in what I would think would be a hard photo to print. I haven't tried black and white photos yet. Regarding everyday docs: It does fine. We keep it in draft mode to keep down ink use. I have had somewhat of a hard time using the wi-fi connection with my laptop. (Our desktop is hard-wired to it.) I hope I have finally got it right. The instructions on setting up the wi-fi capability are a little confusing, in my opinion. Summary: if you are looking for a great photo printer that will do everyday docs, this is the one.
I am very pleased with this printer. It was easy to set up and easy to use.

Fast, Nice Quality, No Wireless Success
from Seattle, WA, United States
Very pleased with the quality and speed of printing, however it has never been recognized on our home network Wi-Fi. We can see every other computer and even the neighbor's printer, but not this one. It's almost like the Wi-Fi function was left out completely.
Good printer - ink configuration confusing
The printer is highly rated and works well however ordering ink is made confusing because two (2) black ink cartridges are necessary: a regular-sized black ink cartridge and an XL black ink cartridge: the printer won't work without both cartridges installed and with adequate ink. So if you order your printer with 4 refill cartridges, as I did, you will still find yourself unable to print unless you also ordered a refill XL black ink cartridge. Strangely Canon does not seem to sell a complete refill set of ink cartridges.
V nice - but no Ethernet port else would buy more
Very nice printer - but lack of Ethernet port is a real drawback, and keeps me from buying several more. (Yes I can buy a USB Enet interface, but that is a real hassle to manage).

A very good wide format printer
Actually I could rate this printer 5 star except for our experience with an earlier Canon printer I bought for my wife. An ip7220 printer. It is so bad that I came close to looking for a printer other than Canon for myself after many years of better luck. Even after Canon replacing the original, it is very slow & noisy preparing to print. And it has a hard time picking up paper from the lower tray if there is any slight irregularity on an edge. My new ip8720 is solid, & quiet as it prepares to print quickly & does a very good job with both text & prints. A good thing is both my wife's printer and my new one use the same ink cartridges. Thanks for that
Happy with purchase
from Duarte CA
I would have given it a 5 star, but was unable to find a manual online to assist me in printing 12x12 photos. Once I figured it out I was happy with the quality of the print. This is my 1st Canon, having purchased 7 other from another leading manufacturer. Photo images are clear & the photos come out completely dry to sticky finish.

Disappointed at CD/DVD print feature
from Palm Bay, FL
I bought this printer mainly because it was advertised to print directly on blank CD/DVD disks. After struggling with this for a year I have been informed that it only works with Canon's pre-designed templates, not my own label designs. This completely negated my reason for buying this printer. To be fair, it prints great photos and documents with very few problems; however I could have gotten as much good from a much simpler, smaller, and less expensive Canon printer.

Unable to connect to network
from Brownsville, Texas, Estados Unidos
I tried to connect the printer to the network with 2 Mac, 2 PC, 1 iPhone, never connected to the network, the instructions in Spanish are not clear, they say things inconsistent. It's a shame that I have to go back, because if you have very beautiful prints.
from Kansas City, Mo
Out of the box I was surprised to look at my counter and hands to find a rainbow of splattered colors from the cartridges leaking. Be very careful to stay away from rugs and nice clothing when installing. I used multiple Macs, Air, Mac PRO, IMAC, and Macbook Pro all on the same network. I have a very difficult time trying to set up on the network. I went to USB and the printer will disappear and the I have to restart the computer. So far it is a real hassle. It must be a great windows printer but as a MAC owner I will probably trash it.

Why is it so big?
from Detroit, MI
I am still waiting and hoping for a replacement for the Pixma 4920 for photo printing with a rear load. I started using Canon all the way back from the 4300, 4500, 4600, 4700 and 4920 versions. This printer is far to big to just print wallet size or 4x6 photos. The good news is that at least they added back in the rear feed in this version vs. the 7220 before it. Now if they would only listen and reduce the size for regular 8x10, 4x6 and wallet prints.
