Canon Pixma iP4820

 

We don't review very many single-function inkjet printers these days because the price for multifunctional "all-in-one" (AIO) devices has dropped below $150. Enter the $100 Canon Pixma iP4820, an attractive inkjet printer that serves its purpose for...

Dual 150-sheet paper trays; auto-document feeder saves money with double-sided printing; trays fold up into compact design; high-quality output; easy setup.

Lacks memory card inputs and USB flash support; sluggish print speeds; lacks convenience features like networking and LCD display; competitive multifunction printers cost the same.

Canon's Pixma iP4820 single-function photo printer produces presentation-quality photos and documents, but the competition offers scan and fax functionality, not to mention extras like Wi-Fi and printing from a USB flash drive, for the same price. We...

Canon Pixma iP4820

 

The Canon Pixma iP4820 color inkjet printer does just about everything well, does it fairly quickly, and does it quietly. Though you could spend less than its $100 price (as of August 20, 2010) on a competitor, some of those cheaper models can...

Very good print quality ; Two 150-sheet input trays ; Automatic duplexing

Faded, orangey photos on plain paper

A solid choice for home and student users, the iP4820 provides very good speed and print quality.

Canon Pixma iP4820 Photo Printer

 

The only connection choice for the iP4820 is by USB cable, which is what limits it primarily to home and personal use. I installed it on a system running Windows Vista. According to Canon, it also comes with drivers for Windows 2000, Vista 64-bit, and...

Automatic duplexing. High-quality photos. Prints directly from PictBridge cameras

Full-page graphics tend to make plain paper curl

The Canon Pixma iP4820 delivers fast speed, high-quality photos, and excellent paper handling in a personal printer suitable for home or office.

Review: Canon Pixma iP4820 color inkjet printer

 

A solid choice for home and student users, the iP4820 provides appealing speed and print quality.

The USB-only Pixma iP4820 is easy to install, even on a Mac, where you usually have to open System Preferences and add the printer yourself. Canon's Solution Center software is similarly straightforward as it guides you through creative projects such...

Canon Pixma iP4820

 

A handsome $99 inkjet with speedy, good-looking text and photo output, the iP4820 will please budget-constrained buyers who don't mind a basic feature set.

Attractive design; automatic duplexing; high-quality prints; extra black-ink tank

Flimsy paper cassette and front paper tray; no Wi-Fi, memory-card readers; no LCD for previewing prints

Apart from the flimsy build of a few of the accessories, we found little to dislike about this printer at this price—it's fast, it has automatic duplexing, and it prints beautiful text and photos. The lack of an LCD and Wi-Fi connectivity are necessary...

Canon Pixma iP4820 review

 

The Canon Pixma iP4820 is a compact single function photo printer with print resolution up to 9600 x 2400 dpi, a five cartridge ink system, auto duplexing, Canon's Full HD Movie Print, 2-way paper feeding, and a front side PictBridge port

Low initial cost ; Good text quality, color photo quality ; Low energy consumption (1 W in standby)

Off center draft prints ; Expensive ink replacement ; One connectivity option

The Canon Pixma iP4820 may fit well in a tiny dorm room or as a desktop printer in a home office but it's hindered by its lack of connectivity options and expensive ink replacement over the long run. But as hardware, it functioned as advertised so I...

"Drinks ink too fast...."

 

I am looking for a good quality photo printer that lets me put my own ink in their cartridges.

Nice photo prints

Ink tanks are too expensive and most important they are not refillable.Printer can be slow at times too.
