The Printer Itself

I was rarther surprized at the sheer size of the machine when it arrived as I was expecting it to be a little smaller but never the less it isnt huge.

 
   

It took around 10 minutes to setup although one thing that was a bit of a pain was that it didnt include a USB cable therefore I had to hunt for one I used on an old printer.
The printer does not come fully built therefore you have to insert the print head and cartidges but this wasnt a problem as it came with a easy to use manual.



Once the cartidges were in place, they had a red glow to them underneath to show they were fixed inplace which I found a nice feature to this printer.



Once the cartidges were in place you were finished and ready to connect it to your pc with the not included USB cable.
I downloaded the drivers from the easy to use Canon site rarther than using the ones provided on disk, once these were installed that was pretty much it and the printer was fully setup and ready to use.
The software provided allows you to change alot of settings from auto turn off and on to the quality of printing.
I found not much difference at all between normal and high quality prints when using the printer for average use but the difference was noticeable on big pictures.

All well layed out. I like the way you have smaller pics to break up text, so if the reader really wants to look at the pic he can just click to see it in large.

The only off thing I noticed in the review was that not all the 'I's were upper case. A few of them were 'i's which doesn't look right to me.

I just realized this, but I don't think this review would go under the "Input Devices" section of reviews. Sounds more like an "Everything Else" sort of thing.

Maybe we should have a section for "Printers and Peripherals"
