very functional for my needs. 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.
So far, so good... 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.
Happy with purchase. 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.
Great Printer! 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!
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
Awesome printer! 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!
Great Printer. 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!
Photo 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.
Excellent Primary Printer. 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.
