The Canon S4500 has the best of both worlds for home users. It is a compact and affordable inkjet model, but also has inexpensive printer ink prices and excellent features. It offers print speeds of up to 9 pages per minute for color and 6 pages per minute for black and white, so it should be fast enough for the average home user. The PhotoRealism system of the Canon S4500 ink also produces excellent output quality.
Home users generally don't have a lot of extra space available, and the design of the S4500 is built for just such a situation. The machine measures 8.1 inches by 22.6 inches by 12.9 inches, and weighs only 15 pounds, so it is not only compact, but easy to move around the office. It can be connected by either USB or parallel, though it does not include networking support, so users who intend to share it will need either a host computer or a suitable adapter.
The problem with many inkjet models is the expense of printer ink. The cost of Canon S4500 ink cartridges is quite low, however, solving this issue. With a capacity of over 420 pages for Canon S4500 ink cartridges, they also have a low cost per page. Compatible Canon S4500 ink is available at a reduced price as well.
In their review of the S4500, EnergyME gave it a very positive rating, and praised its cross-platform support for both Macs and PCs. They also liked its photo quality and fast printing speeds.
With a winning combination of compact design and solid performance, the Canon S4500 is a very good choice for the home or small office environment. It has a low upfront price that will suit smaller budgets, and the running costs are quite affordable as well, making it a very cost-effective choice.
