Canon Canon Pixma iP4500

 

Canon's Pixma iP4500 inkjet printer rivals low-end color laser printers in speed. It also leaves many higher-priced inkjet competitors in the dust.

Very fast; automatic duplexing ; Two input trays

Buttons can be hard to figure out

Faster than even some low-end lasers, the Pixma iP4500 prints great text and photos.

The Canon Pixma iP4500 is a moderately expensive single-function printer designed for general home use. Unlike Canon's more photo-oriented single functions like the Pixma iP6700d , the $130 iP4500 lacks memory card slots and a preview LCD. The iP4500...

Good overall print quality; two paper sources; PictBridge port; built-in auto duplexer.

No preview LCD or memory card slots.

The Canon Pixma iP4500 is a bit too expensive for basic home users, but those who do a bit more printing than the occasional e-mail and map will be happy with its speed and quality.

One measure of what a good value the iP4300 represented is that, even at the higher price, the iP4500 is one of the best standalone ink jet printers currently available for the home or home office, or as a personal printer in a larger office. But it...

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 iP4500 Photo Printer is a near clone of the iP4300 it replaces, with excellent speed, output quality, and paper handling, but at a higher price.

Canon Pixma iP4500 – Printer Review

 

Canon labels the Pixma iP4500 as a premium photo and document printer, and when I bought it in early January my main purchasing criteria was high quality photo prints and the ability to print on DVDs and CDs.

Canon Pixma iP4500 Inkjet Printer

 

Faster than even some low-end lasers, the Pixma iP4500 inkjet printer generates great text and photos.

Very fast, automatic duplexing, two input trays

Buttons can be hard to figure out

The Canon Pixma iP4500 offers excellent speed, sharp print quality, and useful features for a good price. If your colour output tends more toward photos and graphics than charts and memos, it could be a good alternative to an entry-level colour laser.

Manufacturers appear to be falling over themselves to offer printers as cheap as chips these days. Feature-light budget printers are everywhere to be found, like the Epson D92, which costs just £30 but still arrives with £25 of free ink, or Canon's own...

Fast for the price, Duplex printer, Crisp text, Great photos

No LCD or card slots, Watch those ink costs

An inexpensive quality printer that clearly outperforms its many low-budget peers

Dedicated inkjet photo printers still have their advantages. Is this the best one available for less than £70

Overall, the iP4500 is an excellent printer for the money and should be well up your shortlist of budget ink-jets.
