HASH(0x9dae9068) out of 5 stars Not up to previous Canon models - but custom settings helped. Jan. 31 2012
By L. Larsen - Published on Amazon.com

I like others have owned several canon printers including the IP5200 and IP4500, which I had modified to print on CDs like the european version so liked that the 4920 finally did it. I got the 4920 to replace my wifes 5200 that has a bad print head, because the 4920 is cheaper than the 5200 print head. The main problems with the 4920 is that it prints darker and adds a red tinge to what the photos show on my editing software packages. I also don't like the smaller cartridges like everyone else who is used to working with the larger clear tanks where you can see what's left and makes sure your new ones are full.

I was getting ready to send it back when I figured a work around for the color problem on the photo printing. You can download an Adobe RGB 1998 installer program (only.32mb) from Canon support, 4920, drivers & software and install it.

Then when you set up your print preferences like before, select you photo paper type, size, high quality print, borderless,etc., but on the color/intensity choose Manual and then hit Set, there are two tabs that appear. Under the Color Adjust tab I used -10 on the Cyan and -10 on the Intensity and under the Matching tab use ICM, and then choose Adobe RGB as my input profile, and in the Rendering area I choose Perceptual, which is best for photos. After that I hit OK and went back to quick setup tab and hit Save, saving the setting as custom profile (glossy photo 4x6) or whatever you want to call it to match your paper. Next time you go to print photos all you have to do hit your custom setting under the quick tab and it will be ready to go.

Keep in mind you may have to vary the colors or intensity differently to get them to match your screen, but I think this will be close, as most complaints reference the same problem with being dark and excess red. This just requires playing with the color and intensity setting and printing the same picture a few times till you match the screen.

Hope this helps.

HASH(0x9ca7dad4) out of 5 stars More great stuff from Canon Sept. 8 2011
By Diarci - Published on Amazon.com

I should qualify this by saying up front that I like Canon products. I have a Canon S5is camera and a Canon 9000F scanner, both of which have served me marvelously. I also had a Canon ip4500 printer which I loved but which was reaching the end of it's life (on/off button not functioning properly among other things. But, hey, four years is pretty good these days.

The new Pixma ip4920 (and it's so new that I couldn't register it online because Canon hasn't listed it on the site)is nearly identical to the Pixma ip4820 except that now it includes built-in CD/DVD label printing. This was available on the ip4500 in Europe, but for some reason not in the U.S. I used to have an Epson that printed CD labels (remember to buy blank CD/DVD's that are inkjet printable) but it was incredible slow and always having problems. On the ip4920 this feature is a gem! Just click on the appropriate setting in Easy Photo Ex, design your label (or use a pre-formatted one), click print, open the door and insert the CD/DVD holder. Takes about a minute to print.

Also, like the ip4500 and the ip4820, this is a full-duplex printer. Just select Duplex and the printer does one side of the paper, then re-inserts it and prints the other. This function does take a bit more time, but it's sure easy and if you have a 20 page document, much less tiring than taking papers in and out.

Oh. You probably want to know about print quality. Really, really, good. No, make that great. I was already very happy with the print quality of my ip4500, but after printing a photo on the ip4920 without making any adjustments (you can make manual adjustments to the color balance and intensity) I compared with an old print from the ip4500 and was impressed with the richness and detail and on a Greyscale photo, the blacks seemed richer with much less of the unwanted magenta overcast of the old prints.

If you are worried about longevity, go to the Canon website and select "Accessories" when you bring up the ip4920. Canon offers a three year warranty for $50. On the other hand, if a new printer cost less than $100 and comes with $80 worth of ink, it might just be simpler to junk it when it starts to malfunction and get a new one.

Complaints? Yes. This printer uses Chromalife CLI-226 inks. The ip4500 used CLI-8 cartridges. The difference? CLI-2 cartridges are hold about 20% less ink. This is a bummer although it's possible that the ip4920 is more economical in it's use of ink. That said, smaller ink cartridges are becoming standard in all new printers and I otherwise love this thing. Hmmm? No, there are currently no generic refill cartridges available but I'm sure that by the tyime I run out of ink, someone will have them for sale.

ADDENDUM: I just looked and Amazon now lists a third-party ink supplier for CLI-226 cartridges if you are so inclined (i'll stay with the OEM stuff.)

This is a very versatile printer that is also environmentally friendly, and I've had no issues with the printer at all. Multiple ink cartridges allow you to replace only the colors that get used up so you don't have to throw away unused ink. Automatic 2-sided printing works like magic, saving paper with ease. Two paper trays allow you to easily use the appropriate paper grade suitable for each print job you are doing. And the best feature (this is why I purchased this printer) is the capability to print on CD or DVD disks! Wow! What a beautiful job it does printing a cover photo and title right on the DVD. Very nice! The only feature it lacks is Wi-Fi, but for under $100 you can't find a better printer.

HASH(0x9ca60fe4) out of 5 stars not as good as my last printer - i900d !!!!! Oct. 18 2011
By Daniel Mulvihill - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
my last printer - i900d - was a remarkable printer - produced outstanding photos - this printer
sucks up ink - clogs easily & difficult to troubleshoot. I've had this printer about a month now - & yes it is faster to print & does printer with vibrant colors....after numerous trials..
as other reviewers noted = it's all about selling ink & you will definitely go thru ink quickly.
Give me a brand new i900d any day...over this model. Perhaps over time i will appreciate this
printer more....for now i keep re-reading the manual, keep trouble shooting & keep purchasing ink like it's going out of style!!!!!!!!!!!!

By D Luv - Published on Amazon.com

I've been living with my Canon Pixma iP4920 for two weeks now, so although I can't provide a long-term review, I will let you know how it's been so far.

The reason I bought this printer and not any others was for its CD printing function. Out of the box, the software they give is so bloated (>100MB) and really awful. I wasn't able to print any labels that I created in an external editor, so I tried a few programs listed on Canon's website as 3rd party programs compliant with the printer. Using the ones I tried (SureThing and another uncreatively named program) I was unable to get the prints to be centered and without overrun of the ink. It seems this printer is relatively new and is not in the default templates of the programs so you'd have to put in the mm offsets yourself.

After a bit of searching, in which I was hardly frustrated at all, I found a free utility on Canon's Europe site called CD-LabelPrint. It is a really straightforward, lightweight, simple, and altogether exactly what I needed. I was able to import the jpg's of CD's I have created, and expand it to fit perfectly with the ability to save the projects in case I want to re-print in the future.

However, since the utility is for Canon's Europe printers it doesn't have the iP4920 template. After a bit of foolin' around, I found that by using offsets: TOP 0.3mm and LEFT 0.1mm in the print menu yielded the best, most centered prints.

Aside from the CD printing, the only thing to mention would be that this printer cleans, or maintenance's itself very often. You'll try to print something and it'll whir and spin and have a jolly good time dillydallying while you wait for your prints. The cynic in me says this is only done to waste ink to screw me over in costs down the line, but that idea remains to be corroborated.

I'd buy this printer again if you'd ask me today. And I can only hope that I helped you make your decision with this review.
