Canon PIXMA iP6000D

 

The Pixma iP6000D like all of the 2004 PIXMA photo printers feature Canon's exclusive FINE high-performance print heads. FINE technology (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) delivers sub-micron level precision during the manufacturing...

Review: Just when we've finally caught our breath, Canon announces another batch of Pixma printers (the company released four budget Pixma models earlier this summer). This time, instead of workhorse models, Canon treats us to a round of photo...

Canon PIXMA iP6000D Photo Printer

 

The iP6000D is a touch bigger than the iP5000, at 7.7 by 16.9 by 12.3 inches (HWD) and 15.9 pounds, but the two share some features, including two 150-sheet paper trays, the ability to duplex, a USB 1.1 port for connecting to your computer, and a...

Direct printing from memory cards and cameras. 2.5-inch LCD for previewing and editing photos. Reasonably fast performance and very good quality for photos

Slow performance for business applications. Graphics suffer from extreme paper curl

The Canon Pixma iP6000 is a throwback to an earlier generation of photo printers that did a good job with photos but not much else. Given its price, it's unacceptably slow for business applications, making it a reasonable choice only if you want a...

13 months after purchase the printer head malfunctioned. After replacing on Jan 10 the new head functioned only until Feb 20. The same nozzle check patterns showed up. Intermittent printing. etc..

Initially, photo colours were excellent

Problem matching colours to computer. Suspect a problem within the computer leading to eventual printer head failure

The ink can a be a bit costly, and it tells you when one of the tanks is running low, but I just recently discovered that you can print 25 - 35 more pictures when it gives you the warning. When it is out of ink, it will stop printing and tell you which...

Lots of features, can print with or without a PC

Not enough picuires sizes, cost of ink
