The Canon iP3000 is a durable and reliable machine designed for personal and small business use. It is easy to set up and produces high quality prints at a fast rate. It prints up to 22 pages per minute when using only black Canon iP3000 ink cartridges and up to 15 pages per minute when printing in color. It is also equipped with an inkjet nozzle technology which provides clear and precise 4"x6" photographs in less than 40 seconds. The price tag on the multi-purpose printer ranges from $350-$450.
As well as being tough and dependable, the Canon iP3000 is easy to transport. It weighs in at approximately 11 pounds and measures 16.6"W x10.8"x6.8"H, making it ideal for homes or small offices. The inkjet unit is also eco friendly, much like solid ink printers, though Xerox 108R00671 ink provides a much lower cost per page. It is built with 4 separate printer ink tanks allowing replacement of individual colors rather than entire cartridges. The resolution of these prints is very high, ranging from 600x600 dpi with standard black Canon iP300 ink cartridges; up to 4800x1200 dpi for color.
The Canon iP3000 ink is simple to find and load, and it is also offered at a very affordable price. This printer is known to have low ink consumption, meaning less money is spent replacing printer ink. The Pixma iP3000 ink options are standard black, cyan, magenta and yellow. The unique nozzle technology that sets this product apart from similar units, such as Epson T069320 ink produces precise prints by dispensing tiny droplets onto the page for a more realistic photo.
Another positive is that this device is set up to connect directly through USB ports to digital cameras and camcorders, eliminating the need for a PC. Unfortunately the USB cable is sold separately. The box will arrive with a photo printer, print head, power cord, set-up software and documentation, sample pack of paper and individual Canon iP3000 ink cartridges. It is compatible with Windows and Mac.
Reveiws for the Canon iP3000 range from below average to perfect. Customers speak highly of this unit, raving about the reliability, low cost of Pixma iP3000 ink, which is less than competing products like HP 97 ink, as well as easy set up and quick printing speed. Most owners of this Canon printer are completely content with their product, if not impressed. It also contains the unique feature of a dual paper tray with 2 sided printing. Some experts find the photo quality a little glossy and the print time for high resolution photos relatively slow, but most agree that overall this is a quality ink printer.
