In a world of all-in-one devices, it's less common to see a dedicated photo inkjet printer like the Canon PIXMA iP2820. Nevertheless, this compact unit can output up to 8 images per minute in black and 4 images per minute in color, all at a very affordable price. Combined Canon iP2820 printer ink supplies do tend to lead to more waste, however.
With such a focus on photo printing, it is not surprising that the iP2820 has a maximum resolution of 4800x600 dpi. This makes for excellent output quality for both photos and documents, and makes it a good choice for the photo enthusiast without a lot of space to spare. In fact, the unit measures just 5.3x16.8x9.3 inches and weighs only 5 pounds, even including the PIXMA iP2820 printer ink supplies.
Connection options and paper capacity are a bit limited, but this is understandable, given the machine's small frame. Users are provided with only a USB port for connecting it to a computer, with no networking or wireless support included. The input paper tray holds only 60 sheets at once, which might seem a little on the light side for busy users, but should be adequate for the average home user.
The combined nature of the Canon iP2820 ink cartridges is a bit of a disappointment compared to models with discrete colors. Both the color and black PIXMA iP2820 ink cartridges do come in high capacity versions, at up to 300 pages. This is nearly double the standard Canon iP2820 ink supplies.
Buyers who want a simple, affordable inkjet photo printer may need to look no further than the iP2820. It has the basic features most users need without the extra bells and whistles that would drive its purchase price up. The result is a great printer at a great price.
