"excellent photo quality"4.5 starson by rkreasianz
Pros: high res., dual tray, 3.5 inch lcd screen, speed, sharp photos
Cons: no big black cartridge and cost
Summary: Overall this printer is excellent. Compared to the Epson's R340 it is much better and faster. On the Canon's ip6600D highest quality photo mode it printed from a memory card it took 1 minute to print a 4x6, while Epson's highest quality photo mode it took over 6 minutes to print a 4x6. What a big difference. With the 9600x4200 DPI my photos looked extremely sharp, compared to Epson's optimized 5770x1440 DPI it wasn't even close. You can look closely and see the sharpness the ip6600D printed, while the R340 looked a little grainy. Also the cost of the ink is much better. Canon's ink cost $15 each cartidge with 13ml and Epson's ink cost $17 each and had no indication of how much ml was in it. Compare for yourself. Bring you memory card into the store and print a 4x6 photo on the R340 in it's highest quality mode and I bet you can walk back to your car and walk back to the printer and it still will not be finish yet.
