Canon Pixma iP4300 Photo Inkjet Printer

 

The paper handling features are typical for Canon ink jet printers and AIOs, but they're worth special mention, because they aren't typical for ink jets in general. Each of the paper trays can hold 150 sheets of plain paper, which is a substantial...

Fast. High-quality output. Two paper trays. Automatic duplexing. Prints directly from cameras

Full-page graphics tend to make plain paper curl

The Canon Pixma iP4300 delivers speed, high-quality output, and excellent paper handling, all at a lower price than that of the model it replaces.

Canon Pixma iP4300 review

 

Canon's PIXMA iP4300 won our Best Buy award in Labs, Shopper December 2006.

This is a good all-round printer. It can print high-quality documents quickly and printed impressive photos in similarly fast times. Although it has the joint-highest resolution in the group, the photos it produced lacked the precision and accurate...

The first of our A4 inkjet printers is an understated, stylish number, featuring an angular profile and dark charcoal colour scheme.

The Canon Pixma IP4300 produced excellent prints at an impressive rate. It's also a nice-looking product. This wins our Best Buy award and a hearty recommendation.

If you are looking for a competitively priced printer that gives you the flexibility of high volume text printouts as well as photo printing capabilities, the Canon Pixma iP4300 is ideal.

Printer does not come with a USB printer cable ; Wide printer that needs a lot of desk space

To sum up, if you are looking for a competitively priced printer that gives you the flexibility of high volume text printouts as well as the photo printing capabilities for your home or office without compromising quality, then the Canon Pixma iP4300...

This printer gives good photo prints, but desperately needs to pick up the pace

Excellent prints ; Good bundeled software ; PictBridge

Slow print speed ; no display screen

A family printer has to be an all-round workhorse that can output great quality photos, but take printing text in its stride. It should also be easy to use and relatively inexpensive. This is why we picked the Canon Pixma iP4300 printer as our best...

It also offers you flexibility in terms of the size of photos you want to print. Unlike the two PictureMate printers the Pixma iP4300 can print up to A4 size, so you can do extra large prints if you want to

BEWARE OF INK CARTRIDGE CHIPS - Terrible Product

 

Coming off a Canon S600 that I owned for nearly 7 years, I stuck with a brand that I have trusted for some time. I was super-happy with the 'workhorse' quality of my old inkjet and was looking for a suitable replacement.

When it works, the quality and speed is good. Duplex printing

Printer will not function AT ALL without 5 ink cartridges loaded, even if you want to just print in black and white ; Cartridges need to be loaded and re-loaded if they are not properly 'read' by the printer

Product Specifications

PIXMA iP4300 is one fast, versatile photo printer. Thanks to its patented print head and 5-color ink system, you can quickly produce spectacular, long-lasting photos with borderless edges - from credit-card size up to 8.5" x 11" - along with bold, laser-quality text. The two paper trays let you hold both plain and photo paper, so you're always ready to print text or photos. And for convenience, you can print 2 sided without manually flipping over the page!
