"Fast, Portable, Text, Graphics and PHOTO Quality!"5.0 starson by cbolter
Pros: Fast for everyday stuff, and great for photos at a 2 picolitre drop! Ink cartridges are small, but Canon made the printer to be small, as compared to it's competitors, Ink price is comparable
Cons: When their portable becomes a six color, there will be no stopping Canon!
Summary: This is a great unit and I've had mine since it came out! I bought the battery and cradle combo together and it's worth the cost. The printer is expensive, but just compared to someone that owns a desktop verses a laptop, WELL DUH the cost is more. Laptops are still considered a luxury, everyone has a desktop PC. The battery lasts forver on a single charge! The ink goes fairly quick, but the cost is lower than HP overall, and there are two cartridges per pack (color and black). The ink yields more output than it's competitors. The only thing better is Canon's desktop for photos, like the iP8500, which was just reviewed today and was given very good and the i9900 was given an EXCELLENT. Way to go Canon. Keep it up!
