The Canon BJC-1010 inkjet printer does a good job when it comes to very simple print jobs, but it lacks the features, speed, and output quality of many of its competitors. It prints at a maximum of 4 pages per minute, and Canon BJC-1010 printer ink is a little expensive to replace, though its compact frame and low purchase price could still appeal to some home users.
The BJC-1010 is only compatible with Windows machines, and it connects via parallel port, which might be a concern for those with newer computers that don't include this port, though adapters are available. Design-wise, the unit is very efficient, measuring 6.3x14.2x6.9 inches, and since it weighs just less than 5 pounds, it can be easily moved around when necessary.
The included software can help users with creative projects like greeting cards, presentations, and iron-on transfers, and other media types such as glossy photo paper, envelopes, and transparencies are supported. The paper tray can only hold up to 50 sheets at a time, however, and with no output tray, the pages just slide out onto the desk surface. With a maximum color resolution of only 360x360 dpi, the output quality is fairly disappointing as well.
Compared to similar inkjet models, the cost per page of Canon BJC-1010 ink cartridges is a bit on the high side. The tricolor Canon BJC-1010 ink cartridge only provides up to 200 pages, while the black supply is rated for up to 450 pages. This can result in high costs for printer ink over the life of the machine.
Overall, the impressive aspects of the BJC-1010, namely its compact design, are overshadowed by its limitations. With below-average print quality, slow speeds, and expensive Canon BJC-1010 ink, it doesn't have much to entice buyers over competing models.
