Canon PIXMA iP4850 review


Canon's new super-fast printer builds on the runaway success of the iP4700

Compact, lightweight but immaculately put together and solidly built ; Superb quality for both photos and documents ; Dual full-sized A4 cassette and rear tray paper feeders ; Auto duplex and direct printing onto CDs and DVDs ; Super-fast printing with...

No Wi-Fi or Ethernet connectivity ; Lacks all-in-one extras like a scanner ; Running costs are slightly higher than with some of Canon's older printers, such as the iP4500 ; No memory card slots so direct photo printing relies solely on the PictBridge...

The iP4850 is an absolute stunner. Print quality is exceptional and it's immensely fast. At the price, it's an absolute steal.

Canon Pixma iP4850 - the king of inkjet printers


Without doing an awful lot new, the iP4850 tops other home printers.

With a slight speed increase and some niche software extras, it's the king of the home inkjets by default.

Great Cheap InkJet Printer High Quality Color Fast Prints


I love these pixma printers, cheap, reliable, easy to maintain, but like all inkjet printers expensive to supply INK. I aways hook up a CISS unit (Continuous Ink) to these systems. There is built in redundancy with these products, but they are so cheap...

Reliable, Great Prints, Fast, CD/DVD Printing, Easy Setup
