The Canon Pixma iP3500 inkjet printer is ambitious, squeezing a lot of printer functionality into an inexpensive package. While it falls short in some ways, it's still a great value.

Fast; low-priced; crisp, black text ; Has a second input tray

Crowded design; inscrutable buttons ; Fleshtones tend to be yellowish

The Pixma iP3500 offers impressive speed, very good output, and useful features for a low price.

Canon's mid-range iP3500 has some useful extras, including a PictBridge port to print direct from compatible cameras and the ability to print onto printable CDs.

Middle of the road, but above average. Good for documents; photos could be better.

Finally, a home printer that doesn't fail to keep its promises

Excellent print quality (both text and photo), fast speeds

Jagged edges in text, no memory card reader, a little pricey

This printer has proven to be a workhorse for my small home business. I have not had to deal with any paper jam. It prints good quality text quickly and efficiently. It wouldn't be my first choice for photos, but I didn't buy it for that purpose

The ink cartridges are expensive. I believe this is one of the banes of printers across the board
