Canon S600 COLOR BUBBLEJET PRINTER 15/10 PPM 2400X1200 DPI

 

A reasonable price tag, modest ink costs, and quick text printing make the Canon S600 a good choice for the home office.

Canon S600 Color Bubble Jet

 

Crisp text and graphics--and slow speeds--suit the Canon S600 to home users.

With such an impressive combination of price and performance, you may be tempted to purchase several Canon S600 Color Bubble Jet printers ($200 street) rather than network a more expensive printer in your small office or home office. The S600 is a...

Not everyone with a camera needs or wants a dedicated photo printer, but more and more computer users with cameras could use a good letter-size printer that also makes good photographic prints.

Greatest Printer Ever made. Does not come with USB cable but does have that option. I have owned one other Canon printer for about 10 years the BJC600 still prints great but finally became problematic. Upgraded yesterday and have not regreted it yet....

Yes I was a died in the wool Epson fan. Being a photographer I thought nothing could print my 8X10 pictures like an Epson. My 800 and 880 have seen thousands of prints and they were very good. My problem is that I'm going broke buying their inks I...

Product Specifications

Like water racing down a mountain, the effortless speed of the S600 is a natural wonder. The S600 Color Bubble Jet Printer offers incredible speed, outstanding quality, and a host of advanced features that make this printer the perfect choice for your home or home office. Plus, it's simple to operate and quiet, so using it is a true pleasure. And because it features both USB and parallel ports, it's the ideal companion to any compatible Mac or PC. Get superior results at home with the S600 printer. Print everything from letters and flyers to Web pages and invitations at up to 15 ppm in black and 10 ppm in color. It even outputs full-color 8" x 10" photo prints in about 90 seconds on plain paper! And it does it all without compromising quality. At 2400 x 1200 dpi in color (38% higher than 2880 x 720 dpi), output is crisp and colors are brilliant. Plus, Canon's Advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology further refines color, precision and detail for breathtaking photo printing. The S600 printer uses the exclusive Canon Think Tank System. This intelligent ink-management system features four separate ink tanks - one for each color. When one color runs out, you replace just that tank rather than the entire cartridge, helping you eliminate ink waste. The Canon Think Tank System also features a unique low-ink sensor that alerts you with an on-screen message when ink levels are low. So you can drop in a tank before running out of ink unexpectedly in the middle of your print job.
