Canon Pixma iP2600

 

The Canon Pixma iP2600 is an excellent option for buyers looking to print their personal photos and text documents. We wish it had external ports for direct image uploading (although we're not surprised it doesn't), but you'll be more than satisfied...

Sleek design folds up for unobtrusive storage; portrait prints display evenly balanced colors; lines of text look sharp; low price for print quality

Lacks PictBridge port and memory card slot; brighter colors had a slightly gray cast; USB cord not included; exterior is a magnet for fingerprints

Very inexpensive ; Impressive text and photo quality

Minimal features ; Mediocre to slow print speeds

Home and student users should love the prints and the price, but they'll need a little patience.

The Canon iP2600 is cheap, but you get what you pay for; blues, reds and greens turned into pastel shades.

The Canon iP2600 is cheap, but you get what you pay for; blues, reds and greens turned into pastel shades and it did a poor job of duplicating skin tones, often turning them into shades of yellow. However, for a very affordable $49.99, the Canon iP2600...

Canon Pixma iP2600 Inkjet Printer Review

 

Though it's light on features, the Canon Pixma iP2600 offers surprisingly good image quality and performance for an entry-level inkjet printer.

Inexpensive; accurate color reproduction; easy-to-use

No built-in networking or memory-card reader; 90-day warranty

Canon Pixma iP2600 review

 

Low-priced printers are nothing new - even if the Canon Pixma iP2600's £35 price tag is pretty special.

For only marginally more you can get a very decent multifunction printer that offers slightly better performance and adds scanning and copying features to the mix. However, that price is really rather stunning. Given the obvious limitations set by its...

Product Specifications

This compact photo printer delivers true ease of use and amazing results. Its patented print head technology lets you produce beautiful, long-lasting photos with borderless edges, from credit- card size, up to 8.5" x 11", and with resolution up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi. It is fast, too: a superb 4" x 6" borderless print takes only about 55 seconds. For better results, the Auto Image Fix feature automatically corrects images for the best possible exposure, color, brightness and contrast. Also, the specially formulated pigment black ink delivers clear, laser-quality text with better readability and a higher resistance to smudging.
