I used HP printers for years, then had a couple of flops; switched to Canon and was very happy...until this model. What makes me most mad is that I travel internationally at lot, but Canon's ink cartridges are regional. That's right, a CANON cartridge purchased in Europe for the equivalent 4800 printer will NOT work in the same 4800 printer purchased in the USA, and neither will work with a CANON printer purchased in Africa nor will the CANON cartridges purchased in Africa or the mid-east work in either the European or USA 4800 models. YGTBSM!
Also, there is something wrong with the printer software or driver for the CD/DVD printing. On my previous Canon printer, the screen version closely resembled what was printed on the DVD. Yet, no matter how I try to adjust the colors with this 4800, the colors never look even close. I've given up and actually gone back to labels.
Bottom line: Canon screwed up with this printer, particularly for international travelers. I cannot recommend it.
