amurrayx's review of Canon PIXMA iP4200


“I can't believe how impressed I am with the Canon...

Written on: 15/12/2005 by amurrayx (48 reviews written)

Good Points
Fast Printing, both black and color.
Can print double sided.
Superb resolution.
Brilliant colors.
Prints 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, 8.5x11, and 8.5x14 inch photos.
Very good bundled software for photo manipulation and printing.
Uses very little ink, individual ink tanks to save money.

Bad Points
Must allow 15 minutes or more drying time for glossy photos to prevent smudging.

General Comments
I can't believe how impressed I am with the Canon Pixma iP4200 printer!

The letters and presentations are laser-quality.

I compared 4x6 photos on this printer to the Kodak Printer Dock 3, and the Canon 4200 photo's were sharper, more vivid, and without any flaws.

This printer is quiet and fast, although at the highest photo quality setting it takes about 90 seconds for 8.5x11 prints.

Absolutely the only drawback to this printer is if you don't have time to let the glossy photo prints dry.

The list price of less than $150 U.S. is a steal, and I found it for $100 brand new at

After having used this printer, I'd pay over $200 without regret, and as a bonus, the ink lasts so long, so the more you print the more money you'll save.
