Canon BJC-6000


Small-office users who need clean, quick text output and have limited graphics demands will like this printer.

A+ speed and cost of operation, C+ photos


I've been using this printer since Jan 2000. After rebate, I got it for a song, but I think I got what I paid for. For casual printing of text or web stuff, it works really well. Quite fast. The software has more tweaking controls than you can shake ...

Inexpensive purchase price, especially now since it's discontinued. Inexpensive cost of operation. Fast printing.

Photos are only fair, especially when compared to modern printers.

Why I hate this printer


I hate this printer because the way the seperate ink cartridge idea was totally messed up by Canon. What was a great idea has been spoiled in implementation.

Decent qualitySeparate ink cartridges can save money BUT see Cons

Forever to boot.Separate ink cartridges tend to absorb into one another over time.

Not. Half. Bad.


The Canon BJC-6000 is one solid piece of gear. Not only solid in terms of output quality, software package, and speed. No, solid in physical terms. You see, I found mine in the trash. Someone had unceremoniously dumped it there, presumably because...

Spectacular output, cheap cartridges, quick printing.

Takes ages to boot up. Large. Very large.

Well.... The thing worked just fine when I first opened the box, but not much longer after that. The first problem that occured was that I couldn't really find a place to put it. THE THING IS HUGE!! It's about 2 feet long and almost a foot wide. The...

Fast printing speed in black and white.

Drying ink tanks, bad cleaning, bad paper feed, very bulky.

Canon BJC-6000 Better Than I Hoped For


I purchased my Canon BJC-6000 in September, 1999, when I purchased my computer system on the recommendation of a good friend. From the very beginning, I have been impressed with the print output and the service I have gotten from Canon on this...

High-Quality Print Output

Takes up a large area on desktop

Regular Printer with Great Photo Printing!


When my boyfriend and I first purchased the Canon BJC-6000 Printer, we didn't know too much about it and thought it was just like any other ordinary computer printer.

Great printing and photo quality, easy to use.

Slow to warm up, large size, printing a color photo is slow.

Worth the money if you use it properly


First and foremost I'd like to say, as with any computer device, never take the cheap route. When we first bought our BJC-6000, it was around $100. We found another one for $75 the next week, and since we have two computers we decided to get it. We...

Separate ink cartridges, great color quality, quiet printing, many options, user-friendly

Size, ink compatibility, speed

Canon BJC6000 not so bad after all...


See my original opinion below. Since I wrote this opinion, I did further research and discovered that the root cause of all my problems was that the need for a "high speed IEEE1284" cable is not emphasized enough. Also since the cable does not come...

Good Output,individual color cartridges.

A bit too noisy, bad bundled software, Needs special cable-don't forget,need lots of desk space

Good value printer


I have had Canon printers before and have had few problems, only got the 6000 cuz my 400 died after years. The 6000 has separate ink tanks, so when one color runs out you replace it for $11 instead of wasting $30 or more for a 'set', like the HP...

Separate ink tanks, fast speed, cheap

Reliability not that great, big and loud

Product Specifications

Get beautiful color and crisp monochrome prints with the BJC-6000 Color Bubble Jet printer. This printer is perfect for home, school or small office use, with its economical ink system and network connectivity option. The BJC-6000 outputs color and black prints at 1440 x 720 dpi resolution, at up to 5 ppm color, 8 ppm black. With an expanded print nozzle system, it prints an area twice as large in one pass for increased print speed without decreased print quality. The installed black and color cartridges have replaceable ink tanks to replace only the color that is out, and optical low-ink sensors warn of low levels for timely refills. An optional Photo BJ cartridge adds photo-quality print capabilities for professional brochures, greeting cards or other high-quality graphics. This printer has a 130-sheet paper tray, and prints on media up to legal size, plus banners. Use plain and specialty papers, envelopes, cards and transparencies. Canon sends along its Creative Pro software to help you create custom documents and crafts, including brochures, banners, flyers and T-shirts. It includes Adobe PhotoDeluxe Business Edition, Office in Color, Design Essentials and WebRecord. The BJC-6000 uses a parallel port interface and comes with printer drivers for Windows 3.1/95/98 and Windows NT 4.0. It can be connected to a network with an optional AXIS PrintPoint 140 BJC network server. Or add Mac OS compatibility with the soon-to-be-released BJC-6000 USB Kit, for Apple systems with USB port and OS 8.1 or later.
