Canon PIXMA iP3600 Photo Printer

 

Having seen the other options that Canon has available for the home market, there is not much to distinguish the Canon PIXMA IP3600 overall from other models. Whilst the 17ppm printing in color does have its advantages for those of us looking at...

Canon Pixma iP3600

 

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.

Great printer for the price

 

This printer is great for normal text printing as well as photos. For text it is plenty fast for my noncommercial home use. It also makes beautiful photos up to 8.5x11 as well as my professional photo printer. The colors are smooth and rich with...

I like that it will print from the paper in the tray without opening the top hatch. Then when I want to print a photo, I open the top hatch and put photo paper in there, and it knows to use that paper automatically

It's somewhat slow

Not as good as past Canon products

 

I've been a Canon printer user for 10+ years-5 printers. This one might make me think about switching to another brand. Although it has decent quality for the low unit cost, ink is expensive & doesn't seem to last as long, dual paper feeds are a pain,...

Good text print, decent photo quality

Expensive ink doesn't last as long, not as good overall as previously owned Canon products

Not bad for the price

 

Bought this to replace our canon 1p4000 workhorse when it quit after 4 years and 2 print head replacements. Couldn't find another ip4000. Even the off brand replacement ink for this printer is expensive because of the chip. The ink it came it ran out...

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.
