The Canon iP4000 is one of the fastest photo printers manufactured by Canon to date. It can print a 4x6 color photo with the look and feel of an actual photo in 36 seconds using 4800x1200 dpi resolutions. It also has the ability to produce 25 pages per minute using black ink and 17 pages per minute using color printer ink. For such a high quality and high speed device, the price is reasonable at approximately $375-$450. For just a few dollars more, the iP4000R is available which offers the same features as the inkjet iP4000, as well as wireless capabilities.
Light weight and portable, the Canon iP4000 is easy to use and set up. It has a box shape, with a sleek silver finish. It is a 5 color device, using four dye-based Pixma iP4000 ink cartridges for photo printing, and one pigment-based black cartridge for text. The manufacturer no longer produces 5 color machines, making this series unique. There are individual slots for the Canon iP4000 ink cartridges which provide a cost effective and environmentally friendly way to replace single colors. When it is almost time to change the printer ink, another helpful feature alerts the consumer.
The Canon iP4000 ink is applied to the paper using a nozzle print head technology. Much like the iP3000, the nozzle dispenses tiny dots forming a nearly flawless product. What makes the Canon iP4000 better than the iP3000 is that there is almost double the amount of nozzles, giving each document a more precise accuracy and constructing high quality prints. These Canon iP4000 ink cartridges can be replaced for under $20.
The options for paper vary from standard letter to US envelopes. There is also a built in duplexer for double sided printing. This Canon has 2 trays which can hold 150 pages each. Having two trays is unusual for inkjet printers in this price range. This feature is found mostly on high end inkjet printers or Laserjets. Sold separately is a third tray used for printing on CDs and DVDs.
Experts have reviewed this inkjet device and highly recommend it to families and small businesses. They are impressed by the speed and quality of the photographs. The only complaint was a lapse of time between start up and printing. However, with a little patience, customers say this could be the best printer the buyer has ever had. It will last a long time and requires little repair. The Canon iP4000 ink is simple to replace and cost effective. This unit trumps all other inkjet printers in the same price range, and it is all around a perfect fit for your home or office.
