Canon Pixma iP90v

 

The compact printer is small enough to slip into a laptop bag, for printing from practically anywhere. For a single-function printer, $250 is a lot of money, especially when you'll need an additional outlay of cash for the optional battery kits that...

Text quality has improved over the last version; very compact design makes it easy to carry with you; ink-saving modes can save you in a pinch; PictBridge- and IrDA-enabled.

The printer is expensive, and add-ons such as battery packs make it moreso; photo print speed is slower than that of the older model.

The Canon Pixma iP90v is the Vista-enabled version of the older Pixma iP90 and offers nearly the same print speeds and quality. It's a very useful printer if you travel a lot and need to print often, but consider the purchase carefully because it's...

When you need documents or photos in a pinch, there's no better option than the iP90.

Excellent print quality Fast• Small and lightweight• Prints composite black

A little expensive No memory card slots

Canon Pixma iP90

 

Turned off, the iP90 snaps shut into a tight, seamless capsule. When open, the front cover becomes an input tray for plain paper or glossy photo media, from legal to credit card size. You can fill the paper tray with either 30 plain pages, five...

Good print quality for graphics and photos; portable; built-in infrared and PictBridge ports; battery and Bluetooth add-ons.

Low-volume ink cartridges; so-so text quality; pricey extras. For true cordless portability, you'll need a battery that costs $100.

Ever printed on an airplane? What about from a cell phone? The go-anywhere Canon iP90 offers worlds of possibilities--for a price.

Canon Pixma iP90 Photo Printer

 

When you need to print away from your home or office, a portable printer like the Canon Pixma iP90 Photo Printer ($249.99 direct) can come in handy. Whether you need to whip out an updated PowerPoint presentation in the cab on the way to a meeting, or...

Portable. Compares well with most desktop ink jets in both performance and quality. Includes infrared interface for wireless printing, with optional Bluetooth. Optional rechargeable battery

Heavier than some notebooks, at 4.4 pounds with the AC adapter (and without the battery)

The Canon Pixma iP90 portable printer can go toe-to-toe with desktop ink jets for speed and quality. And in addition to connecting by USB cable, it can connect to your computer, PDA, or cell phone, with its built-in IrDA (infrared) or optional...

Consumer review by:

printed very little; it wont load ink or print useless.

 

take my advice: AVOID CANON PRINTERS! you will regret buying one.

no pros. very expensive, not worth it

EXPENSIVE; inks run out quickly; after mimimum use, it broke down; ink won't load; Canon advises EXPENSIVE REPAIR asked Canon how to recycle -- they failed to provide information. CHOICE: pay to return printer to Canon OR place in landfill

Canon Pixma iP90v Wireless Mobile Printer

 

Close but no cigar. Maybe the "Vista" version is better than my older one, but Im just avoiding the iP90 now. For the price, it should have been rock solid.

Looks great, beautiful, simple, small, decent utilities

Print heads die young (3-6mo) and are a major PITA to replace. I didnt work it hard

Product Specifications

Rugged, powerful and portable, the Canon Pixma iP90 Photo Printer delivers exceptional performance at home or on the road. This compact printer can produce up to 16 ppm in black and up to 12 ppm in color, while achieving a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi. Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance 1, 088-nozzle print head that ejects precise and consistent droplets as small as 2 picoliters with remarkable accuracy. Your results: impressive resolution and dramatic detail on graphics and photos, wherever you're printing from. In a hotel room or a home office, the iP90 printer goes practically anywhere, yielding superb output on all your projects. Reports and memos will look clean and professional with bold, crisp text. Using the included Canon Easy-WebPrint software, Web pages are automatically formatted, so they'll print properly with full color and without trimming off the right-hand margin. You can also produce 4 x 6, 5 x 7 and 8.5 x 11 in. borderless prints, with stunning edge-to-edge quality and razor-sharp detail. In only about 51 seconds you can print a 4" x 6" photo with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. And for convenience, you can connect any PictBridge compatible digital camera or DV camcorder directly to the iP90 printer and print photos - no PC required! If you're on-the-go and low on ink the iP90 printer's "Ink Usage Control" setting enables you to produce approximately 1.5 times more pages without lowering print quality. Plus, if you run out of black ink, just choose the "Use Composite Black" option and the iP90 printer continues to print black using a composite of color inks in the "Ink Usage Control" setting. These features are a convenient safety net when you don't have extra ink on hand.
