The Conclusion

Well I have done several tests with this printer and I must say even on standard A4 paper the quality is stunning. This printer appears to have lived upto what it has been hyped upto be and is well worth every penny. I found the instructions easy to read and the setup straight forward but I think Canon should have included a USB cable. Just think of unpacking your new printer (all excited), following the guidelines then to find you cant get your new gadget running due to a missing part. I have printed several pictures and pages so far and all five ink cartridges are showing full so I cant really complain on ink. The software is easy to use and is very user freindly with no technical info that the average user wont understand causing confusion. Another good feature to the software are preset settings which are to be used again by the average user but for all you technical wizards out there you can create your own custom profiles if needs be. The appearance of this printer is not bad either with its sleek black and silver colour scheme, it wont have much trouble fitting into any modern home without sticking out like a saw thumb. Overall I think Canon have done an excellent job at creating a good all rounder which will outperform any other in its price range.

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"
