5.0 out of 5 stars God's gift to my iMac (and wallet), March 7, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon iP3600 Inkjet Photo Printer (2868B002) (Office Product)
I'm a young photographer/graphic artist and up to this point I was getting by without a printer. Just didn't want to do my own printing and deal with hidden cost of ink and paper. After a while the thought of the convenience made me cave in. After giving it some consideration I couldn't decide between the ip4600 and the ip3600. It turned out the biggest difference was printing speed, and that wan't worth and extra $40 because everything else about this printer is solid quality.

The GOOD:
1.I love the separated color cartridges! No more need to swap out a whole cartridge just because I ran our of red.
2.Looks nice. (in my opinion) So I sit in no mood to try and stash the ugly thing out of sight. Oh yea, the prints.
3.FANTASTIC color reproduction and resolution after calibration (see the BAD) I'm in no time sensitive printing contest so I'm quite happy with the printing speed.
4.Set up on OS X Leopard was a breeze.
5.I installed a continuous ink system on it and printed 1200 full color, legal size pages until the nozzels failed.

So my veredict? Get one!! Hell get 5 and build a fort! They're SO cheap and the quality is superb. I got mine for $47 new and it makes me laugh at the $300 beast I had 5 years ago.

Nice review, but... matching color to the screen is not the way to do things. Computer screens are not a reliable color standard, and in fact, no RGB (using lights) system will match a CYMK (reflective) system. The real comparison is comparing the original to the reproduction, but then, the camera must also be accurate.

In fact, I have a Dell Monitor with both VGA and digital inputs, and the difference between these two inputs is very noticable.

Hey Marty McFlied:
Actually, you do want to match the printer to your computer. That is where you do all of your editing and storage. If you can print WYSIWYG, you can use software to tweak your pics anyway you want them.
