Canon Pixma iP5000

 

A sleek 16.5 by 11.2 by 6.7 inches (WDH) and about 15 pounds, the Canon Pixma iP5000 unfolds for use, with a flip-up 150-sheet autofeeder tray that needs no extra clearance behind the printer and a flip-down 50-sheet output tray that extends 6 inches...

Autoduplex printing; easy to operate; Mac and Windows compatible; excellent text and graphics quality.

No built-in networking.

A relatively fast, versatile printer with excellent text and graphics quality.

Canon Pixma iP5000

 

Physically, the iP5000 is a near twin to the iP4000, at 6.7 by 16.5 by 11.3 inches (HWD) and weighing 14.9 pounds; it comes complete with two 150-sheet paper trays and the ability to duplex. It lacks the iP4000's parallel port, but, like the iP4000, it...

Fast performance for business applications. Output quality rates as very good. Direct printing from cameras. Duplex printing. Two input paper trays

No memory card slots. Slower photo speed and slightly lower photo quality than the less-expensive Canon Pixma iP4000

Like some other Canon Pixma printers, the Pixma iP5000 is a good choice for all-purpose printing, despite its designation as a photo printer. It offers high speed for graphics and text, somewhat slower speed for photos, and sophisticated paper handling...

Canon Pixma IP5000

 

The first ink-jet printer to feature a 1-picoliter-droplet size features clean, legible text prints and excellent photo quality.

Very good all around printer ; built-in duplexing

Printer profiles confusing ; some prints a little on the red side

The installer includes some confusingly named printer profiles-Canon IP5000 SP2 is for Glossy Photo Paper at second highest resolution, but those prints came out a with a slight red color cast. We had better results using Canon's standard BJ Color...

"Loved this printer!"

 

Excellent photo quality prints, handled text documents w/ease, ink lasted a long time

My print head died & there is no replacement to be found.

Consumer review by:

Great print quality,Really user friendly and intuitive.

 

I believe the color and print quality is as good as other more expensive photo printers without the price for the additional cartridges. Best printer for the money.

Has only five cartridges. This really cuts down on the cost of ink. This was important when I was looking for a printer

I haven't found any to speak about
