Canon Pixma iP4300

 

Inexpensive printer successfully balances speed, output quality, and price.

Prints both text and photos well Automatic duplexing

Control panel elements are small, Confusing setup documentation

The Pixma iP4300 combines speed and impressive overall output quality with a very appealing price.

Editor's Choice!

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.

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

Good printer, much better than the HP I replaced. Would recommend it highly from a price/performance standpoint. It does run out of ink fairly quickly but that can be resolved by having some backups.

speed,simple to operate,quality output

I expect good performance. The Warranty needs to move into the twenty-first century when buyers expect more. Canon, please listen.

Looks very nice

Software Warranty was written by their lawyers. "This is a CD ROM and we do not promise anything else." Even Microsoft is better than that now

I bought this printer because I needed a printer able to print documents, pictures and CDs/DVDs. For its $90 price and its quality it is undoubtly a great product. This printer requires 5 cartridges and first good thing is you do not need to change...

Low price, duplex printing, exceptional CD printing, very good documents printing, good photos quality, same cartridges used for all printing types

2 black cartridges required

Canon Pixma iP4300

 

I used the provided set of inks then purchased "compatible cartridges" (yes they ARE available - same as the iP4200!). Halfway down these and the printer is now virtually disabled due to 'no ink' warnings which can't be turned off. Looks like Canon are...

Great for printing CD blanks and overall very good print quality

INK - thought that by having a seperate tanks system (like Epson) would save me money but ... well see below

In general I am very happy with the purchase of this printer. I was attracted to this printer for its low cost but with quality printouts and automatically duplex printing. Gone are my days of flipping papers to have duplex printing.Having 2 paper...

Automatic duplex printing, good quality printouts, direct printing from camera with PictBridge, 2 paper trays, large paper trays
