I am a graphic designer/art teacher as well as small business owner. In my studio, I have on hand 3 printers at a time with each one having their own purpose. My outdated HP wide format printer wouldn't work on my newer OS for Mac so I bought this one to replace it. So nice to use on all computers vs. just one.Here are the reasons I purchased this printer:1. This printer has a SMALL footprint compared to other wide format printers. It's also lightweight. I can't believe the people whining about how big it is?? Trust me. The footprint is small for a wide format.2. The top loading feature allows for thicker types of paper to be used WITHOUT curling the paper as it passes through comapred to the "U" shaped route of other printers loading from a bottom tray.3. The trays fold completely flat and it looks neat when not in use.4. The output tray is nicely stored INSIDE the machine so that it can't be knocked while on your workspace when not in use.5. It has CMYK tanks that can be individually replaced (or refilled).6. It was on SALE with a rebate.7. I saved an extra $50 for recycling the old cruddy HP printer. :)8. It's quiet and fast on the standard setting. 9. The resolution is fantastic! Even at lower settings.10. It has a standard plug...(I live in an old house and it doesn't require an adapter for the outlet AND fits right in a surge strip with bulky plugs next to it.)

It is not bad as far as printing documents and color pages goes. The major gripe I have about this printer is the rediculous amount of ink it uses. Scratch that, not USE but WASTES! It cycles the print head before printing and after printing every time, there is no way to get around it even if you shut it down right after you print a document it cycles, when you turn it back on, it cycles. You cannot keep it on, it will cycle and then auto shut off after a few hours. Ink waster if anything...

Comments about Canon® PIXMA® iX6520 Inkjet Business Printer:

My old Canon i9100 died one day; the black print head bit the dust and could no longer operate. All my test prints were "black-less". That printer had been in regular use for around 10 years. It was such a durable and great machine I looked for a Canon model again. Unfortunately, there was no printer equivalent to my i9100 currently available. It was a wide-format ink-jet printer that would print up to 13" x 19" page size. As an artist, I rely on photography to keep a visual record of places I visit, people I meet, etc., as reference material for painting subjects, so I use the large format to print out enlarged reference images, or details of them. Because of this use, the large format is therefore important to me. Staples only listed two Canon printers with a wide-format capacity (besides the REALLY big printers at multi-thousand $$ apiece). They offered the Canon PRO-100, and the one I bought, the Canon PIXMA iX6520. They were offering good deals on both printers, so I assume these models are both about to be retired. I chose the iX6520 because it only has 5 ink tanks, whereas the PRO-100 has 8, and is geared primarily FOR photographers to print out either samples or final output.
I'm sure the PRO-100 would have printed out perfectly BRILLIANT color prints, but since I share this printer with other users in the family LAN, it needs to also print out a lot of business and school printing as well. I could see myself spending a fortune on ink on an 8-tank printer, that was already more expensive. My old i9100 was a 6-tank machine, and I used a fair amount of ink in it.

The iX6520 claims to be able to print a resolution of up to 9600 x 2400 dpi, and I hope it can, but I haven't had time to test it with high end photography yet, but the early color print-outs of a few color pages off the web do not thrill me, even with setting the Mail print quality as "fine printing on plain paper." I must keep in mind that most Web images are low-grade .pings or .gifs. before I judge without further tests. It seemed to me however, that my old printer did a better job with images off the web.

It's quiet when it prints, but when it feeds a new sheet, it makes a moderately-loud plasticky-clunking-rattling sound as the feed mechanism engages; it must be working alright, because the sheet-feed operation is quite smooth in movement, just noisy. My old i9100 was the opposite; louder than the iX6520 when printing, and quieter when feeding a sheet.

I'm looking forward to testing further. Perhaps I can file an updated performance review on the Canon PIXMA iX6520.

    I print 25 copies of my club's newsletter each week. The "double sided" print time is extremely fast.I print about a dozen 4X6 photos per week. Again, the speed was excellent. The photos are clear. It will also print on 13"X19" paper. Can't wait to try this out. Haven't had it long enough to judge ink use, but the yellow seems to be going down quickly.

      Good thing I was replacing with the model I had. No usb cord in the box for the new one. I was able to use cord from my old printer. Otherwise I am happy with my choice, as I had a good supply of ink I might not have been able to use with another choice,
