Canon - BJC-50

 

If the Godzilla marketing machine is anything to go by, size is important. Not only for computer-rendered simulated monsters, but also for portable colour inkjet printers such as this. According to Canon, the BJC-50 is the ...

Heavy duty and fast are two completely inappropriate descriptions of this printer. It's quite expensive too. But for those road warriors who simply have to be able to print while on the move, and without a mains power supply, this is what you're...

Excellent Portable Printer

 

I bought this printer 5 years ago, and have used it heavily at first, and sparingly since. I hardly ever need it, yet when I do, I can simply grab it out my cupboard, switch it on, stick it by the side of my laptop, and print perfect copy - just like ...

Compact, Handy, Great Print Quality - the best portable printer

Expensive running costs

Great Portable Printer

 

I love this little printer. It's great for everyday tasks, just not for photos, but that's not what I bought it for. This little printer is amazingly quick and easy to use and set up. Works great with infrared. I haven't had any problems with it....

fast, good quality, light, infraRed

little pricey, small ink cartridges

Consumer review by:

Fast. Quality. Compact.

 

Canon BJC-50 is fastest from portable printers. It is necessary to mark quite good printing quality, possibility of work in an autonomous mode and also rather modest dimensions and weight. The replacement of the print head and inkwells has not caused...

fast for portable, very good quality, small, light

high price, poor software

Consumer review by:

Look Ma, no cables.

 

I bought the BJC-50 for two reasons. The IR port and the battery. The IR port is necessary because my little ultralight portable doesn't have a parallel port on the main unit (it's on the back of an external floppy drive) and the battery, well that's...

Light, small, battery, fast, IR, WinCE drivers

Software install not the greatest

Efficiency vs. Convenience

 

When I first picked this printer out in the store (Future Shop), it was due to the chic style that it had been designed with. But, don't be fooled by this product's cool appearance, sometimes bigger is definitely better. Don't get me wrong, the print...

very compact and mobile

costly (initial and maintenance)

Consumer review by:

A nice printer and perhaps the best portable printer today

 

I far consider this printer to be the best portable printer in the market today. The BCJ-50 has a small footprint 11.9W x 1.9H x 4.4D and lightweight (2 lbs with the battery!). It is capable of printing up to 720x360 (equivalent to HP 600x300 mode...

extremely versatile, best print quality on portable printer market, small and lightweight

Canon printer dependability is not as good as HP or Epson, may be the most expensive portable printer out there, scanner addition only so-so

BJC-50- printer/scanner for on the go mobile professionals

 

I have recently purchased a BJC-50 printer. I can only say good things about this product. I use it for work and for school. It it light weight , portable, compatible with just about everything, including windows ce. This printer has two types of...

extended battery, excellent compatibility, quality document outcome, wireless portability

if you want quality goods you will have to fork over the dough, this item doesn't come cheap

Canon BJC-50 Failure

 

Purchased the printer to use as I travel 3/4 days per week. Got less than TEN hours of work from the printer when the entire system froze. Attempted to work with Canon's customer service and was jerked around in excess of one hour before I was told I...

Small lite-weight good quality

 

I purchased the BJC-50 to replace another printer I had lost. I was set back by the $270 price. It is easy to carry in luggage and light weight.

Lite and easy to carry. Handy to have along

Jams easily. A bit on the costly side
