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.

A Basic Inkjet Printer : Canon PIXMA iP2850


Not everybody needs a printer with various bells and whistles such as Wi-Fi and remote printing capability. The subject of this next review is just such as basic device.

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 Desktop Inkjet Printer.


" Very good printer, my only complaint is that there wasn't the lead in the box required to link the laptop to the printer, and there isn't a wireless option. Luckily I had a spare old. "

Good results


" Bought as a replacement for a smaller printer, the larger footprint meant a slight re-arrangement of my home desk - but more than compensated for by the speed and, on a good ink jet paper, the crisp printing and colour. Working on an iMac meant that...

Easy To Use


" At the price this printer will be difficult to beat. I needed something to do basic document printing and for this it is excellent. I haven't tried photo printing so can't comment. It is easy to use with only one button to press, but I did find...
