Large format printers may seem overpriced for some consumers that don't have the need for one. But for those who get the maximum use out of a machine like the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8000 this is a great buy. Built to fill the needs of marketing and advertising companies that produce large banners or architecture companies that create blue prints, this inkjet printer weighs an astonishing 308 pounds. It also has a large frame, measuring 74.4x38.4x44.9 inches.
Backed by a 12 tank printer ink system, resolutions of up to 2400x1200 dpi can be reached. However, when trying to prevent the overuse of Canon iPF8000 ink, a lower resolution of 1200x1200 dpi will suffice for standard text prints and less intricate graphics. The Canon FINE technology uses thousands of nozzles to eject small droplets of imagePROGRAF iPF8000 ink over every inch of paper. The amount of printer ink dots per inch measures resolution (dpi).
Unfortunately, the iPF8000s does not offer a wireless connection, which could be truly helpful in some work environments. It does offer a standard USB port and an ethernet interface that provides networking, which allows multiple users to share this printer. An 80 GB hard drive is built-in and a large memory is standard with room for expanding. The status LCD on the top panel of the unit gives users an easy way to navigate.
When it comes time to replace the Canon iPF8000 ink cartridges, there are a few options out there. Of course, OEM replacements are available directly from the manufacturer. However, remanufactured imagePROGRAF iPF8000 ink cartridges are available from third party vendors that will provide the same production value but cost considerably less. Overall, this inkjet printer is rock solid and will meet the needs of any company in need of a large format machine. The price tag on the replacement Canon iPF8000 ink may be a little steep, but it is worth every penny.
