Canon Pixma IP4600

 

The $100 (as of 3/3/09) Canon Pixma iP4600 color inkjet printer is inexpensive to buy and maintain. Although it's minimally equipped and slow when printing text, it's still worth considering for the budget-minded home user and amateur photographer.

Low price; economical inks ; Comparatively fast at printing photos

Slow while printing text ; No media slots

While the photo quality and speed are pleasing, the lack of media slots and the merely decent text speed are not.

Single-function, basic inkjet printers suitable for the home or home office haven't quite gone the way of the dinosaur, or even the not-quite-extinct dot matrix printer, but they're growing rare. More and more, standard inkjet printers are being...

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

Slower than the last-generation printer it replaces. Full-page graphics tend to make plain paper curl

The Canon Pixma iP4600 is a surprising step down in speed from the printer it replaces, but it offers similar output quality and paper handling at a lower price.

Canon PIXMA iP4600 Inkjet Printer

 

Canon's PIXMA iP4600 inkjet printer has an attractive price, but is it as good as the iP4500?

The safest advice is to run plain paper from either source, but to only run photo blanks from the tray, in case of paper jams. In Canon’s specs, the cassette is only rated up to 105gsm, while the tray can take up to 300gsm.

Canon - Pixma iP4600

 

The trade-off between the price you pay for a printer and the subsequent charges you incur when you need ink refills has long been a bugbear of computer users. Canon's Pixma iP4600 doesn't solve the problem ...

It'll go through ink, but you'll get far better quality prints than you might expect in this price range. And it's no slouch when it comes to text either.

A slight speed boost and a new curvaceous shape keep Canon on top of the inkjet pile.
