When it comes to heavy-duty printers with incredible accuracy and a wide range of colors, there are few units more impressive than the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF5000. This unit is a monster, measuring 39.3x28.9x12.5 inches. A decent amount of space will be needed to house this inkjet printer. However, the most difficult part might be the initial installation or potential transportation considering the iPF5000 weighs just about 100 pounds.
Only certain companies or freelance digital artists will have a need for the kind of work the 17 inch Canon large-format machine does. Not only does it have a somewhat overwhelming upfront price of around $1,700, but the cost of maintenance will add up quickly with the 12 Canon iPF5000 ink cartridges that are needed for operation. The colors of printer ink are red, blue, green, yellow, gray, photo gray, cyan, photo cyan, magenta, photo magenta, regular black and matte black. With the variety of colors of imagePROGRAF iPF5000 ink cartridges, images, graphics and text documents are guaranteed to come out looking sharp and professional.
Connected by USB or ethernet, the iPF5000 does not offer wireless capabilities but will provide a network for an office full of people to work through. It is compatible with the major operating systems and has 192 MB of memory built in. It is also Energy Star qualified, meaning it is environmentally friendly.
Using just the black Canon iPF5000 ink or printing in color, only about 1 page per minute can be printed. This speed will not work in a fast-paced work environment, but it does take time to print such precise images. The imagePROGRAF iPF5000 ink can reach a maximum resolution of 2400x1200 dpi. When replacement printer ink is necessary, it can be found in numerous places. OEM and remanufactured Canon iPF5000 ink is available online from the manufacturer or from third party vendors.
