The Canon i450 is a single purpose inkjet photo printer with impressive quality and an output rate that is above average. This unit is perfect for personal useor for small businesses with basic needs, such as letter printing or web printing. At 18 pages per minute using black printer ink and 12 pages per minute using color, the i450 is pretty standard. However, the quality of prints blows away the competition.
There are 1,088 nozzles in this unit, producing 2 or 5 picoliter drops of Canon i450 ink per inch. This nozzle print head technology revolutionized by Canon makes clearer and less grainy color pictures. The Canon i450 ink cartridges are small but have a decent sized page yield, which ends up costing about 13 cents per page when printing graphics and 2 cents per page when printing black text. The Canon i450 printer ink cartridges are relatively inexpensive and simple to install.
The i450 inkjet printer is compatible with Windows and Mac and is capable of printing on multiple sizes of paper including letter, legal, 4x6, 5x8 and envelopes. The package comes with the unit, the print head, 2 cartridges of Canon i450 ink and software that is very thorough and helpful. The software includes Easy-PrintPhoto and Easy-WebPrint, which simplifies the adjustments and enhancements needed to produce lab quality prints.
Experts are impressed with the output rate of black text, but consider the speed of color photo and graphic printing a little below average. However, the high quality of documents produced makes up for that. The i450 offers a USB 2.0 which quickens image transferring and an extra USB for direct connection to Canon digital cameras. This unit is cost effective due to the high page yield of Canon i450 ink cartridges and the reasonable price of specialty Canon paper.
