Canon Pixma iP4000

 

Dual paper trays and a duplexer make this photo printer handy for office tasks.

This versatile unit is a good combination printer for office documents and high-quality photos, as long as you don't mind less-than-perfect plain paper output.

Canon PIXMA iP4000

 

The Pixma iP4000 replaces last year's i860 model and will retail for an estimated $149.99. The iP4000 is Canon's fastest consumer inkjet printer to date with print speeds up to 25 ppm in black and 17 ppm in color. It blazes through 4x6" borderless...

Canon Pixma IP4000

 

Measuring 6.8 by 16.5 by 11.3 inches (HWD) and weighing in at 14.9 pounds, the iP4000 is currently the biggest of the PIXMA printers. It offers both a USB 1.1 and parallel port for connection to your computer, as well as a second USB connector in front...

Fast performance for photos and business applications. Direct printing from cameras. Good or better output quality across the board. Duplex printing. Two input paper trays

No memory-card slots

Canon calls the PIXMA iP4000 a photo printer, but it's a good choice for all-purpose printing. It offers high speed for graphics, text, and photos; output quality that varies from just short of very good to just short of excellent; and unusually...

Canon Pixma iP4000

 

There's almost everything on this stylish printer except the proverbial kitchen sink, including dual paper trays, integral duplexing unit and a CD printing tray. As an all-round office/photo printer it's hard to beat

Separate ink tanks, Built-in CD tray, Dual paper sources, Second black ink

Slightly yellow prints, Lightfast issues

Fast budget printer that's a good all-rounder. Good results for three colours and comes with lots of features.

Canon PIXMA IP4000R

 

The PIXMA IP4000R is one of the few printers that comes with an 802.11g connection, although both the Epson STYLUS PHOTO R800 and STYLUS PHOTO R320 of...

Speed, features, running costs

Nothing notable

Fast print speeds and a lot of features--including wireless capability--would make the IP4000R a good buy even if its printing costs weren't so low.

PC Plus review: Canon PIXMA iP4000R

 

The trickiest thing about the iP4000R is that, as well as USB and PictBridge ports, it features Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless connections. However, you pay an additional £71 for this luxury, compared with the otherwise identical iP4000 base model.

Product Specifications

If you're looking for outstanding quality, high speed and advanced convenience features, the Canon Pixma iP4000 Photo Printer is ideal. Its ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system with four dye-based inks plus a pigment-based black ink produces true-life photos with improved color saturation and contrast along with laser-quality text. Plus, it achieves a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi, for exceptional detail and photo-realism. Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance 1,856-nozzle print head that ejects consistent, prescribed-volume droplets as small as 2 picoliters. Simply put: more nozzles with higher accuracy equal better results at impressive speeds. You can even produce edge-to-edge borderless photos in 4 x 6, 5 x 7 and 8.5 x 11 in. sizes, with the look and feel of traditional photographs. Using the Pixma iP4000 Photo Printer is fast and easy. How fast? It can produce up to 25 ppm in black and up to 17 ppm in color, and a 4" x 6" borderless print takes only 36 seconds. How easy? With direct photo printing, you can even print without a computer: simply connect any PictBridge-compatible digital camera or DV camcorder, and print! To help reduce printing costs, this efficient system has five individual ink tanks that let you replace only the color that runs out, rather than an entire cartridge containing unused ink. Plus, a unique low-ink sensor alerts you when ink levels are low, so you are prepared to just drop in a new tank as needed.
