The Canon i850 is an inkjet color photo printer that is compatible with Windows and Mac. It is compact and attractive, and it fits perfectly into any home office with any décor. The i850 is fast, producing a page in 2.3 seconds when using black printer ink and 4.2 seconds in color. It can also produce a 4x6 borderless color photo in less than 48 seconds and an 8x10 in less than 90. As well as the impressive output rate, the quality of the results blows away the competition.
For under $200, this inkjet unit offers photo-lab quality and helpful software that simplifies the printing process. The Canon i850 can print on various types and sizes of paper—letter, legal, A4, 4x6, 8x10, banner and envelope. It has parallel and USB ports, but it does not come with the cords necessary to use these outlets. It weighs 7 pounds and measures 16.5x6.3x10.8 (WxHxD) inches.
At approximately 10 years old, this printer was among the first to feature a Canon Think Tank, which consists of 4 Canon i850 ink cartridges opposed to older units that had only 2 tanks. It also features the Advanced Microfine Droplet Technology, which is a system consisting of 1600 nozzles that dispense around 19 million droplets of Canon i850 ink every second. Replacement tanks are relatively inexpensive and have a high page yield. There are also special photo Canon i850 ink cartridges available for higher picture quality.
Reviews vary for the Canon i850, from unreliable to unbeatable. Some experts find the text and graphics in black printer ink grainy and slightly faded. Consumers are more worried about the rate at which the Canon i850 ink is eaten up. Most, however, are happy with the production and quality.
