With a simple design, the Canon Pixma iP4500 inkjet unit is easily setup with a USB port. Although the iP4500 printer has similar features as the Canon's previous iP3500 model, including double sided printing capabilities and dual paper trays, the iP4500 also has the ability to print at a faster speed of 1.9 seconds per page for black Canon iP4500 ink and 2.5 for color. For those who need a printer that works at a faster rate, the Pixma iP4500 would be worth the $250-$300.
This unit has a 4,608-nozzle print head and a four dye-based system with the additional pigment-based black Pixma iP4500 ink. This addition helps give photos improved clarity and text documents more precision. The printer ink resolution is good, 600X600 dpi for standard black Canon iP4500 ink and 9600x2400 dpi for color.
With a PictBridge USB port, the iP4500 lets users connect digital devices straight to the unit without need of a computer. The iP4500 is compatible with Windows Vista, XP and Macintosh. This unit comes with all five Pixma iP4500 ink cartridges and instillation software that makes setting up an easy task.
Another positive to the Pixma iP4500 inkjet printer is its low ink consumption. This means owners will spend less money and have longer usage before they need to replace Canon iP4500 ink cartridges. Another convenience is that when one color cartridge runs out of printer ink, it is not necessary to replace all 5 because they are separate from one another.
Reviews include praises for the Canon iP4500's fast printing speed, easy set up and beautiful picture quality. Though the price may be high for those who don't print color graphics as often as text documents, the Pixma iP4500 is well worth the money for businesses that print a large amount color graphs and charts. For families and small businesses in need of a standard, less expensive photo printer, the iP3500 is a good alternative.
