I would recommend this print/scan/copy machine to anyone. The quality it puts out, combined with the price, make this little baby a real winner. Being this was a first experience with Canon printers, they've sold me. I couldn't be happier. If I left anything of importance to you out or you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment. I always try to help out where I can. And again, this little gem deserves very strong consideration.
Performance surprisingly good
I would go so far as to say that this printer is a solid bet for someone who needs something that works the way you ask it, when you ask it, and how you ask it. It doesn't hurt that the pricetag is only $149.99-even though it might be a bit more than what your average spender is looking to plunk down on a printer, the value of buying a good, consistent, and efficient printer is high.
Sure, it's not flashy, and what printer is nowadays?
What a dissapointment! HP forces you to buy color cartridges!! Scans very slow
I purchase this after reading several of the other glowing reviews, none of which until recently mentioned that HP will force you to purchase all new color cartridges even if you set it to black only and your black ink cartridge is brand new. This is a total ruse, and I've been played again. The seller at Staples never mentioned this, of course, and the instructions from HP are totally silent on the topic.
Also, the scanner is terribly slow, even for a multi-function.
For the same amount, you can buy a unit with automatic duplexing.
Despite good performance and cheap high-capacity supplies, a $150 multifunction without any sort of duplexing support should be avoided (unless you actually want to double your paper usage, mailing costs, storage space, and such). Instead, choose a like-priced competitor, such as the Canon Pixma MX512 or the Brother MFC-J825DW.
Huge footprint when trayâ??s extended.
The HP Officejet 6600 is a good, SOHO all-in-one, which prints quickly, produces excellent plain paper prints and is economical to run. However, the lack of both duplex print and, at a minimum a front-panel USB socket, have to count against it, as some of its main competitors include both.
Offers excellent performance as well as decent output.
The HP Officejet 6600 e-All-in-One Printer colour inkjet multifunction (copy/scan/print/fax) is a puzzler, and a huge disappointment. Priced at $150 (as of June 11, 2012), it's handsome, it has an easy-to-use LCD control panel, and it offers excellent performance as well as decent output.
Decent Value for the Money
In summary, this printer/scanner/copier should work fine in a home setting where compactness, quality and low cost are more important than speed. Some users complain that the standard ink cartridges don't last very long but each color can be replaced separately when a cartridge is empty. High-capacity cartridges are also available.
Low initial cost, Ease of use
I have to say I was disappointed with the Epson Expression Home XP-410. There are zero improvements on the previous generation Epson Expression Home XP-400 we reviewed last year. The design, print speeds and features are identical and I actually had more trouble with the photo printing on the XP-410.
And don't be surprised if you spend quadruple the initial cost ($99.99) on ink in the first year with a set of high capacity cartridges running around $80.96.
Good features and performance in a small size
The XP-410 is targeted at the home user who might also run a small, home-based business. It can produce excellent images with the right paper, works well for crafts, and is great for printing school and business reports. Print speeds are very good, as is the price. There's no fax capability or ADF, but given the reasonable cost and target user, we don't see this as a big deal.
Great little printer!!
After reading almost all the reviews on Amazon to buy a new photo printer, I decided on The Selphy. My mom also has it and I liked the quality of the prints. I have had 2 photo printers, a HP Photosmart (LOVED IT!!) and a Kodak all in one (HATE IT!!) All I wanted was a photo printer! Not a fax, copier, scanner, printer. Who would have thought that would be so difficult? The Photosmart was the best printer for quality. The Kodak, a HUGE let down. Lines through my photos, really?
USB and PictBridge sockets
The Canon SELPHY CP900 is a dye sublimation printer come of age, with direct wireless connection to mobile devices, and quick and easy print from PC or via its self-contained controls. Running costs are high compared with typical inkjets, but print quality is generally good and photos are dry and more robust, even straight out of the printer.
Excellent quality, Quiet operation
The main concern when purchasing a photo printer should be whether it prints quality photos reliably. We believe the Canon PIXMA iP7220 does print quality photos reliably, especially at this price tag ($99.99). We found the photo prints to be detailed, crisp and we found the color to be brilliant. We compared the original digital image on our PC to a printout of that same digital image, and found it to be remarkably close to the original.
It works well, good quality full feature printer
I like this printer because it works well and has important features. Prints come clear and fast. The wireless set up is easy, the fax works flawlessly, the copy machine too. I haven't tried the scanner yet, but I'm sure it will perform to satisfaction. The features that I like the most about this printer is its speed, the wireless capabilities (I can easily print from several laptops around the house and from tablets), the automatic feeder, and the double-sided printing.
Good text and photo quality
The Canon Pixma MG5220 is a good printer with an interesting mix of standard and unique features allowing the customer to do more at a low initial cost. For $149.99, the Pixma MG5220 offers quality text and photo prints quickly, low energy consumption, auto duplexing, a front side USB port, two-way paper feeding, good software (with Memory Card Import and Full HD Movie Print) and an easy to use control panel.
Good quality black print, Useful eco-driver options
The SCX-3405W is a good, versatile, mono laser all-in-one, where Samsung has obviously worked hard to provide an enhanced set of eco-facilities in what is still a very low cost machine. The provision of wireless connection and direct print from phones and tablets is also unusual in a budget laser device, though more and more manufacturers are looking at providing these.
WPS connectivity, scan, ID Copy
While I would tend to go for a colour unit when combining a printer with a scanner, I can see the Samsung SCX-3405W performing a useful function in a small office or home environment. Currently this model is being advertised on the Samsung website with a price set at £149.95. A replacement toner cartridge will set you back in the region of £42.40 but this does give you up to 1500-sheet capacity.
MobilePrint app prints directly off mobile devices
This model is suitable for consumers looking for a basic, compact, multifunction mono laser printer. An eco-friendly device, it offers a mode for saving paper and toner. The Wi-Fi function makes the SCX-3405W easy to share within a team of colleagues and enables it to print via mobile devices.
I am really impressed with this printer from Canon. It scans, prints, copies, prints 2-up, prints CD/DVD disks, etc. The included software is impressive and it is very compact for all-in-one device. It can be operated wireless or direct connect. I have it USB-connected to one computer and wireless to another plus an iPad. Setup on my network was flawless using the install CD and touch-screen operator panel.
Terrific and accurate color - when using Canon photo paper
As a photo printer with scanning and copying capabilities, the MG6320 will meet many - if not most - home users- printing needs. It's easy to set up and running, and it's good looking. But if you need high quality output on plain paper, we did not achieve this in our testing. If you plan on using the MG6320 to print photos or other high quality images for presentation purposes, stick with Canon's paper and you'll get good results.
