While the Canon Pixma iP3600 may not be a good fit for businesses with demanding or large-volume print needs, it is a good match for consumers, students and home offices. Its small energy footprint and excellent color resolution allow you to produce...

The printer has a small footprint, using only 16 watts of power and weighing approximately 10 pounds

It has a low black-and-white print resolution and lacks a memory card slot

It's not well suited for heavy use, but excellent color resolution and a small footprint make it a great option for printing photos at home.

Expert review by:

Canon PIXMA iP3600

 

A no-frills inkjet printer with two paper sources, good print quality and separate ink cartridges.

Software installation includes a driver – versions are provided for Windows 2000 onwards and OS X from 10.3.9. There's no apparent support for Linux. Other software in the bundle includes Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint EX, which offers basic photo editing.

The minimalist look is echoed by the Canon Pixma iP3600's functions. You won't find flash memory card slots, Wi-Fi or LCD displays here. Instead you get a simple PictBridge port, plus power and pause/resume buttons on the front. The standout features...

The Canon Pixma iP3600 may be basic, but it gets the basics right. It's fast and turns out beautiful prints that leave many of its rivals standing.

Canon Pixma iP3600 review

 

Canon's Pixma iP3600 is part of the same range as the Pixma iP4600. It lacks some of the iP4600's more advanced features, including automatic duplex printing, but it still manages to impress.

Canon Pixma iP3600

 

Priced at just $139 the Pixma iP3600 is a handsome and compact little unit in its piano black livery. It takes five ink cartridges made up of magenta, cyan, yellow, photo black and a double-sized plain black.

Canon Inkjet Printer Pixma iP3600

 

I find it surprising that it is 11 months since I have reviewed an ink jet printer, by that I mean a printer as opposed to an all in one or a multi function unit. Unlike most inkjets it has two proper trays so you have far more control from the computer.

The Canon Pixma iP3600 inkjet printer measures 41x33x15cm with the rear upright tray closed, open the tray and add A4 paper and you add 22cm to the last figure the height. Sad to say it is black apart from a silver stripe so it is unlikely to pass the...

Product Specifications

The PIXMA iP3600 is a compact, affordable home photo printer with class-leading specification that delivers superior photo lab quality prints. The PIXMA iP3600 features crisp text printing thanks to a dedicated black pigment ink cartridge, making it appropriate for all kinds of web and document printing. All 5 Single Inks can be replaced individually, minimizing unnecessary ink wastage. A smart LED indicates when a cartridge is running low or needs replacing. Two paper trays enhance media flexibility, allowing both photo paper and plain paper to be loaded at the same time without having to swap them manually. Digital camera users will also benefit from the ability to print directly from their camera without a PC using PictBridge. If you prefer to hook the printer up to your PC, a Hi-Speed USB interface enables the fast transfer of information.
