Canon PIXMA iP2850 inkjet printer review

 

Not surprisingly the printer itself is also single hue - a sort of Apple white with occasional dashes of black lettering and icons. When you take it out the box, you almost wonder if it's a toy printer as it weighs a miniscule 2.3 kg; and all the...

Canon's stripped-down basic inkjet printer produces high-quality print results and costs less than £40 but dearer ink costs, photo restrictions and very limited functions might prove a deterrent.

This single-function inkjet is a decent buy if you don't need the features of an MFP

Canon Pixma iP2850 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Canon Pixma iP2850 is a standard colour inkjet printer - it only prints. It's a basic model - you don't get wi-fi connectivity, but you do get good-looking text prints. We've tested this standard printer to see how it measures up to the competition...

A Basic Inkjet Printer : Canon PIXMA iP2850

The Canon PIXMA iP2850 is an inkjet printer. This model concentrates all its functionality on the print aspect using two ink cartridges (Black and Colour). Connectivity is via Hi-Speed USB 2.0 with the user providing the necessary lead to link the...

Canon Pixma iP2850 review

 

High-quality, low-cost inkjet print – marred by expensive ink cartridges

The low cost of the iP2850 is certainly very attractive, so it’s bound to appeal to home users and students who need a basic, affordable printer. Print quality is also very good for such a low-cost device, but the high cost of Canon’s black ink...

Does the job.

  (Rating Hidden)

It's about as cheap and basic as you could possibly get in an inkjet printer, but for simple text printing it's all that I certainly require. Not sure how long the cartridges will last or how expensive they will be to replace. The only noticeable...

CANON PIXMA iP2850 Inkjet Printer

 

This is a cheap printer which delivers nicely printed sheets.

It moves a bit on the table. You feel it's a great effort to do this simple task! For double sided print, you are instructed to put the sheet back in the feeder after first side has printed. Fairly normal practice, but it always grabs two sheets for...
