Canon Pixma iP4700

 

The Canon Pixma iP4700 color inkjet printer costs just $100 (as of March 29, 2010), but it offers some impressive features for the price--and reasonable ink costs. It would be a solid choice for a student or a busy family.

Inexpensive ; Automatic duplexer and 300-sheet paper capacity ; Economical ink

Limited connectivity ; Front-panel lighting codes are hard to decipher

Canon Pixma iP4700

 

The Canon Pixma iP4700 may not have the fastest printing speeds, highest black and white resolution or flexible connectivity options. However, its unrivaled color print resolution means it produces crisp, high-quality documents and images every time it...

The Canon Pixma iP4700 offers outstanding color print resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi, which yields clear, crisp prints

The print speeds are relatively slow at less than 10 pages per minute, and the printer doesn’t have wireless printing capability

Despite a few flaws, this is the go-to inkjet printer for photo enthusiasts and home and business users who print photos frequently.
