Canon Pixma iP6600D

 

A big LCD and two-sided printing make this well-designed photo printer attractive, and it prints high-quality photos quickly.

Big color LCD display, Very high quality photo prints

Lacks PictBridge support

The iP6600D is particularly well suited for printing photos directly from a digital camera or media card, and two paper trays and a duplexer add to its versatility.

Canon Pixma iP6600D

 

Review: A large 3.5-inch LCD screen, a built-in card reader, good photo output, and duplex printing of up to 300 sheets between refills make the 9,600x2,400dpi Canon Pixma iP6600D a solid fit for digital camera owners who prize versatility and...

Built-in duplexing; 3.5-inch LCD and full set of controls on the printer; solid photo quality; direct printing via PictBridge, IrDA, and (with adapter) Bluetooth; Mac and Windows compatible

Mediocre text quality; slow

Versatile stand-alone operation and good photo quality make the Canon Pixma iP6600D appealing for digital camera owners, but slow operation and mediocre text output mean it's a bad choice for SOHO or business use.

Canon Pixma iP6600D Photo Printer

 

Clearly targeted at the home user who is primarily concerned with printing photos, the iP6600D offers an extremely well-designed kiosk-style front-panel menu system. The 3.5-inch color LCD for previewing photos and the combination of buttons and menu...

Fast performance for photos. Excellent paper handling with dual paper feed and duplexing. Extensive photo-kiosk style front-panel menus for printing from memory cards

Performance on business applications is wanting. Text quality is only fair

The Canon Pixma iP6600D Photo Printer can function as an all-purpose printer, but it's best reserved for photos, with a PictBridge connector, a kiosk-style front-panel menu for printing from memory cards, an LCD for previewing photos, and much better...

Lab-quality photo printing, photo editing and low-ink blinks set the iP6600D apart

If you're tired of waiting for someone else to process your digital snapshots, Canon's Pixma iP6600D will let you print great, long-lasting photos from your Mac.

Huge, 3.5-inch color preview LCD ; two paper trays ; automatic double-sided printing built-in ; economical, individual ink tanks ; prints great-looking photos

Plain paper text printing was a little fuzzy

Setting up the printer is easy. There are red lights on each of the six individual ChromaLife 100 ink cartridges that light up when installed correctly. These lights will also alert you, by blinking on and off, when you begin to run out of ink

I've owned this printer for nearly a year now. If I had reviewed it when I first bought it, my summary would be much kinder. First of all, the ink prices. This machine runs on six cartridges, the cheapest online price being about $15.00 per cartridge....

Prints photographic images nicely...when it first comes out of the box

Ink prices are out of this world ; It didn't take long for my ip6600d to start giving me major problems after less than a year of light usage

I would not recomend buying this product. The hassle with ink, speed, and updating drivers is just too much for anyone wanting a decent printer.

Good Quality Printing

Always shows the "U150, The following ink tank cannot be recognized" error

Product Specifications

The PIXMA iP6600D Photo Printer is a photo-printing powerhouse, with incredible quality and high-end convenience. It delivers an amazing resolution of up to 9600 x 2400 dpi, for detail and clarity that will surpass your expectations. To achieve this, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a next-generation 3, 072-nozzle print head that ejects precise, consistent droplets as small as 1 picoliter. It all adds up: more nozzles + smaller droplets = smoother, virtually grain-free images. Plus, Canon's added high intensity Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta to the conventional 4 inks, to increase the accuracy of color values. The high performance doesn't stop there. The PIXMA iP6600D Photo Printer can produce a beautiful photo lab quality 4"x 6" borderless print in approximately 46 seconds. Plus, its advanced paper handling provides you with several smart printing options. The dual paper path allows you to keep two different paper types always loaded and ready to print. You can even create 2 sided photos or special photo albums with select Canon media. With the extra-large 3.5" LCD color viewer and control panel, you can evaluate and enhance the images on your compatible memory card before printing! For viewing, just insert the card into one of the built-in card slots and select the images. As needed, the PIXMA iP6600D Photo Printer will automatically correct for red eye, improve sharpness and enhance the light values on your subjects' faces. Or, you can fine-tune the image yourself using the easy control panel. Then, print directly from the memory card! You can also print directly from a PictBridge compatible digital camera or DV camcorder. You can even print directly from an infrared-enabled mobile phone! Just shoot, point your phone and print. And for Bluetooth-equipped mobile phones, PCs and PDAs, this versatile printer is Bluetooth compatible with the optional Bluetooth adapter - allowing you to print from another room. The Canon ChromaLife100 system combines the PIXMA iP6600D Photo Printer's FINE print head technology and newly developed inks with select Canon photo papers, with results rivaling that of many conventional photos. And with the new smart LED ink tanks, your LED lamp flashes when ink is running low, and flashes even faster when nearing empty.
