I've read all the reviews and nobody has anything bad to say about this printer. It is fast, it is quiet and it spits out beautiful photos down to the minute detail. I've compared prints from this printer to the Adorama pro lab and the photos from the i9900 shows more color depth with much sharper details.
You can't go wrong.
Design - could've been better. Maybe a more streamlined look (like the square Pixma line).
Canon Paper - very limited. Not much selections compared to Epson.
Setup is fairly easy. Open the box, follow the large poster, connect to your computer, calibrate the printheads and you're set to go.
In any case, the good still outweights the bad. I've given prints to my friends from this printer and they are just as blown away as when I first printed my first photo.
I would give this pritner a 9.5........but since we don't have that option - I'll go ahead and give it a 10!!! :-)
