"Great option for documents, invoices, etc"4.5 starson by miksurf
Pros: Compact, blazing fast letter & envelope printing for my design studio.
Cons: Older design software, like Macromedia Freehand MX (we still use!) may require converting files to EPS format first.
Summary: I am a professional designer, photographer, and I purchased the Pixma 100 to back-up my Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer which shouldn't be wasted on mundane needs: invoices, envelopes, small ad proofs, hard copy for book text etc. I didn't like what was offered as Laser printers, so I rolled the dice and bought this. Mainly because I like the size, and I have an affinity for Canon as a photographer. Bottom line: I love this little machine. It prints text blazing fast, and the color printing is also fast and fairly accurate in terms of reproducing my letterhead, etc. If your needs match mine, including the fact that I can take it along when traveling, then jump on it. I am using it with a new dual-intel MacBook Pro, OSX Leopard. I rate it at 9 because although it prints fairly accurate color proofs, there is some slight banding. Totally OK for quick cheap color samples, or snapshots. Anything that really requires perfection will be done on the Epson; that's its role. This fulfills its own role in the studio perfectly.
Thanks for your submission!
