I have had this printer now for 2 years. Very dependable with good photo quality output. We have several canon printers throughout the house. This is our least expensive one the is my "beater". I lug it from work to our basement. Cant tell much difference in photo quality between this and our more expensive ones. This printer does run a litter slow but for the price and reliability you cant beat it!

Worked fine for three years, then...
This printer was as good as other printers I have owned, including E, H, O, P, and maybe a few other brands. The 'Photo Print' quality was outstanding, although I have not done very much of that type of printing. For three years text print quality was outstanding, but now the black ink nozzles cannot be cleaned, even with repeated deep cleaning. I understand that there is a "print head" that can can be replaced but there is no mention of this in the maintenance instructions. Searching eBay I find new print heads listed at prices higher than that of other brand new Canon printer models. I chose to buy one of those instead, since I do so little Photo Printing.

My family and I own so many Canon cameras, scanners, printers, and other hardware by Canon and have never been disappointed - until now. We have been customers for over 40 years and Canon always lived up to their reputation. Owned the 4500 and never had a problem. Never minded paying for Canon ink cartridges when using on a quality printer.
This printer 3600 is horrible, Even the paper tray is not sturdy. It prints a few pages and then nothing. This has happened so many times I can't even count. Followed all instructions- and cartridges were not clogged. Only the wider black one. Was cleaned, deep cleaned, wiped inside as per instructions, re-installed, and nothing. Amazon reviewers had same problems with it. Am so disgusted and aggravated. A shame that Canon's quality has decreased so much. I used to buy with confidence but after this I will, like many others, buy another brand.
