Contrary to the other posted reviews here, I've owned a Canon ipf 8000 and an 8300. I've had no problems with any internal circuit boards although two print heads were replaced at no charge, even though out of warranty. Canon USA (I can't speak for other countries) has been extremely helpful with a call center in the US, as opposed to somewhere half way around the planet.

I print virtually everything on canvas or matte paper, on rolls. If you find it difficult to load a roll of paper, seriously, you need to spend some time at the gym working with weights. The adapters for 2 or 3" cores are not strange, they're straight forward snap ins that allow you to use rolls with either core size with one feed bar.

You can select either photo black/grey or matt black/grey for use on canvas by 'fooling' the machine and selecting a glossy media. I've compared prints from HP and Epson printers against the 8300 and the 8300 more than holds it's own against either brands, whether judged on fineness of gradation of tones, B&W, or detail.

A great printer, fatally flawed for me by the cost of servicing and consumables.

I have 6 x 8300s, 4 x 8300Ss, 3 x 8000s, 1 x 8100. These printers seem to either work - or are flaky from the very start.

From the above I had 3 x 8300s that died almost instantly from a mist fan error - traced back to a faulty mainboard ($1700 ea. for parts alone). The printers are idle and have been for over a year. You can't have a model where replacing the mainboard practically costs more than a new printer - including shipping from the US - especially when you add in the new the new heads and new ink you get with a new printer - those are worth a shade over $2000 alone.

IMHO Canon's Corporate and Social Responsibilities are found wanting if the only cost effective solution to a failed fan is to throw the whole 130kg of metal and plastic into landfill.

Shortly these three printers will be 'installed' in Canon HQ's car-park in Victoria, Australia as a sign of my disagreement in their model.

In short: Make sure that you have a service contract. Ask for three years minimum.

I own both an Epson 9900 and the Canon ipf8300. First off had major problems from the start, I had to replace heads every 2 months, (under warranty but the printer is down for days)...finally after constant calls to Canon and the retailer they set out a service tech who replaced 75% of the internal parts. Have had no problems after major overhall.

Pros: Prints photos great! auto change from matt black to photo black, good ink use, lower price than the Epson

Cons; Very difficult to load, 44" full roll of paper is heavy and this printer loads from the bottom. You also have to lift a tray witch falls on wrist as soon as you load the paper also has odd adaptors for 2 & 3" cores. The software plugin is useless in photoshop, it crashes, so I do not and cannot use it. Poor customer service is also a problem.
The Epson prints fine art (canvas & rag papers) much better than the Canon. (Canon prints photo base faster than the Epson)

I have had my IPF8300 for 2 1/2 years now. I hardly use it because the expected business I had hoped for did not materialize. I do prints for friends or myself once a month to keep it running along. I always leave it on to do it's daily ink shake. Two weeks ago I changed the M/C, and one ink was looking low. Next week, right printhead gone. Sent for new one, got it, and called Canon to get unlock code. Then I got another error message while on phone with tech support. I must have got one of the nicer techs, cause he set up a service call to replace both heads and a carriage board. Remember, I only have one low ink and a new M/C in the machine now. Servicing created another error code, so now a new part, a mainboard. Canon came through, parts replaced, machine now runs out of the one low ink. I spend $160 for the cartridge, put it in, and half way through the ink replenishing cycle, I have to replace the new M/C from two weeks ago. It dumped about all the ink I had out into the M/C. Replaced the M/C, third now, and all inks are depleted. 2 weeks ago, some of these inks were reading 60% full. Canon refuses to replace any ink, despite the fact that I had plenty of ink (except one) in my machine. I am out of work currently, as I explained to them, and can't afford the extra $ 1759. it will cost to replenish all the ink that the servicing just dumped into my M/C.....Very disappointing, considering where I started 2 weeks ago. Would have been cheaper to finance a new machine and sell this one for parts. No one tells you about how much ink this process dumps. I thought a print or two, not 20% or about 1680ml. Beware..
