Canon PIXMA iP4850 review

 

Canon's new super-fast printer builds on the runaway success of the iP4700

Compact, lightweight but immaculately put together and solidly built ; Superb quality for both photos and documents ; Dual full-sized A4 cassette and rear tray paper feeders ; Auto duplex and direct printing onto CDs and DVDs ; Super-fast printing with...

No Wi-Fi or Ethernet connectivity ; Lacks all-in-one extras like a scanner ; Running costs are slightly higher than with some of Canon's older printers, such as the iP4500 ; No memory card slots so direct photo printing relies solely on the PictBridge...

The iP4850 is an absolute stunner. Print quality is exceptional and it's immensely fast. At the price, it's an absolute steal.

Canon Pixma iP4850 - the king of inkjet printers

 

Without doing an awful lot new, the iP4850 tops other home printers.

With a slight speed increase and some niche software extras, it's the king of the home inkjets by default.

Great Cheap InkJet Printer High Quality Color Fast Prints

 

I love these pixma printers, cheap, reliable, easy to maintain, but like all inkjet printers expensive to supply INK. I aways hook up a CISS unit (Continuous Ink) to these systems. There is built in redundancy with these products, but they are so cheap...

prints directly onto printable DVD and CD's good cd printing software included

Ink price is high even for comparable ink cart's bit slow to get going but makes up in print speed.

Canon Pixma iP4850

 

Good print although I don't use for photos or haven't yet. Dual trays plus duplex print facility. quick. Separate ink, hopefully for cheaper running.Includes a DVD/CD label printer attachment. Initial impression is better than the Epson it replaced.

Loading the paper tray is slightly fiddly but not bad.

Canon Pixma iP4850

 

Neat and tidy, I bought this model to replace my IP4300 as I still want to print DVD Labels.

Very slow to start printing. It seems to pause and whirr and whirr before during and after printing. This happens a lot more than with my old IP4300. Also the ink tanks are much smaller than on the IP4300 and seem to run out very quickly - I worry...

Canon Pixma iP4850

 

Very easy to use. I like the duel feed for paper delivery

A bit vague on disc printing. Not easy to position text or graphics. I may just be me?
