This unit was one of the first inkjet printers manufactured by Canon to feature the Think Tank System, which drastically reduced the wasting of printer ink by having four separate Canon S520 ink cartridges. Even while adding this new system, Canon managed to provide the S520 with the same rapid output rate, which produces up to 14 pages in black per minute and up to 9 in color. It also creates a vibrant long-lasting 4x6 borderless color photograph in as little as 47 seconds and an 8x10 in less than 90 seconds.
The Canon S520 is around $150 but has among the lowest printer ink cost in comparison to other printers in the same price range. Canon probably could have put a few more dollars into the paper trays, which are flimsy and tend to fall off. However, they did provide good, solid software. The software includes Easy-Photo Print for the automatic adjustments that give images the final touch of perfection. Another helpful feature is the low-ink sensor that blinks to alert the user that a Canon S520 ink cartridge is running low.
Black Canon S520 ink is accompanied by 320 nozzles dispensing it in tiny droplets, creating a resolution of 600x600 dpi (drops per inch). Each color of Canon S520 ink is being ejected through 256 nozzles to make a maximum resolution of 2400x1200 dpi. It is estimated that millions of drops hit the paper every second, and if applied to the right kind of paper, the image can last for many years.
The Canon S520 inkjet printer is perfect for a home office, and makes developing pictures a much more convenient and simple task. It fits into most budgets and provides a service that is priceless. Experts and consumers agree, at the time it was introduced to the world, the S520 was Canon's finest printer.
