"A sleek sexy glossy black box loaded with features."4.0 starson by vvhosyourdaddy
Pros: too easy to use, superb photo quality that can't be matched, lightning fast photo printing, various other features, great bang for your buck.
Cons: the glossy finish shows smudges easily. The PPM ISO rate isn't bad, but it could be better. It's not like a few extra pages per minute are going to ruin my day. Honestly, you need to loosen your schedule if this printer is too slow for you.
Summary: you want specs and features? go to the canon site. You want opinion on performance? read on.
You're probably wondering what the real dirt on this printer is. How are the photos? How's the speed, the quality, the ease of use? Is it worth the price? You've come to the right review. read on.
photos: 20 seconds to print a 4x6 with unsurpassed clarity and colors so accurate and rich that it looks like it came from walgreens? Is Canon crazy? Whether you print photos or not, this thing will come in handy WHEN you do.
noise: If you find yourself printing documents in the wee hours of the morning, this is the perfect printer. This has to be the quietest printer I've ever used, next to my epson NX515 which makes no sound at all, because it broke, yet again.
speed: It may not shoot out double spaced documents in a screaming blur, but it definitely will print a page in roughly five seconds. That's right, in the time it takes you to put your laptop to sleep, put it in your bag and grab your keys, it'll have your 12 page report ready to go.
resolution: What's the point in 9600 DPI when you can't even see the 1 picoliter dots? I don't know either, but it's wicked sweet. Between, us, this is one thing you won't have to worry about with canon. 9600dpi is the best you'll get even from a more expensive $250 inkjet printer.
ease of use: This is the best part of the printer. It's all touch based, and only the buttons needed will light up? Oh snap, they light up? That's right. It's a smooth flat touch sensitive surface, and they light up only when needed. This printer is so easy, a baby boomer could use it.
features: When you look up the features, look up the iphone app, the template printing, the HD movie capture....tell you what, just look them all up. Heck, let me save you the time. Just buy the blasted thing and stop reading this review.
Reliability: Canon...and that's all I have to say about quality.
ink usage: I don't know how long the ink lasts, but if I'm not too lazy, I'll come back after it finally runs out. No, wait, I stopped counting. Next batch? maybe next summer?
bottom line: This printer is perverted, selling online for $150 with all of the features it has. Here's the bott verdict on this printer. You're going to buy it, and even if you spent the full $199.99 MSRP on this printer, you're not going to feel like you just wasted money on a printer. That is unless your neighbor just bought his at Best Buy, spare ink and a 100 pack of photo paper with money to spare.
It may not get five stars, but this printer get's the Smitty stamp of approval.
