The Canon BJ-100 lags behind other inkjet models in most ways, including speed and output quality. It can print a maximum of only 5 pages per minute in black and 2 pages per minute in color, but its compact design makes it nearly portable, which might appeal to some home users with very limited space. Users will also find the low cost of Canon BJ-100 printer ink to be a benefit.
The compact design of the BJ-100 is a nice fit in tight spaces. It measures just 6.5 inches high, with a footprint of 14.6x7.5 inches. It also weighs just 5.3 pounds, even with the Canon BJ-100 ink supplies installed, so it is easy to pick up and carry around when needed, and could almost be considered portable.
The small frame comes with a few compromises, however. The input paper tray only holds up to 50 sheets, for example, which means frequent reloading for anyone doing more than the most low-volume printing. It also uses a curved paper path that could result in more frequent paper jams. The machine does handle media up to 8.5x14 inches in size, however, which is an unexpected plus for such a small device.
Replacing Canon BJ-100 ink cartridges is quite simple, and there is only two printer ink supplies used, though this could mean a little more wasted ink. Remanufactured Canon BJ-100 ink cartridges are available, however, for prices that are much lower than their OEM equivalents.
Buyers looking for a very compact inkjet printer may find some appeal to the Canon BJ-100. For the most part, however, its lackluster output quality and slow speeds make it difficult to recommend, and the combined tricolor supply leads to a lot more waste than models with discrete supplies for each color.
