We received excellent customer service from PrinterStar, who were prompt with help and questions. Be aware though that this model requires both a BC-10 print cartridge head (not included) and BCI-10 ink tanks.

The ink isn't too dear but a new cartridge can set you back a bit.

Looking for this for a long time 10 April 2009

Needed a printer for my notebook PC while on vacation. This was just what I needed. With USB was an easy setup, no special drivers required, just "plug-n-play". Slow printing, but good quality. Small footprint, easy to carry. Even fits in my notebook case.

BJC 85, Still the best 18 Mar 2010
By Old Gold - Published on

I'm very pleased with my recent purchase of this printer. The canon BJC 85 may seem outdated by some of the more modern portables, but, in my experience, this is still the absolute best and most reliable portable to carry. The print speed is slow by modern standard, but , in my opinion, that is outweighed by the ease of operation, very light weight, and inexpensive and easily refillable ink tanks. It's still the smallest and lightest full function portable available.

The fact that it is is a Plug-and Play with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 is a HUGE plus in my opinion. No CD to fumble with or loose. Nothing to download. And the USB connectivity makes it a snap. Just plug it into the computer and it's installed. Nothing could be simpler.

Sadly, finding that the scanner feature is not compatible with VISTA and 7 is a let down, but if someone runs XP, having the ability to buy a scanner cartridge and convert the printer to a portable scanner is very convenient. I don't think that there is any other portable capable of that.

The outside case is durable and hides scuffing well. And it seems to take travel well. I've owned both a newer Canon iP90 and iP90v prior to switching back to this printer and am glad I did. The silver cases of the iP's got very scratched quickly and tended to look very beat up. And both, while giving excellent print, seemed to be very touchy.

This BJC 85 is something I've owned before. I'm glad I was able to find a used one in such good shape on Amazon, and am glad to have this old friend back.

Perfect! 11 Mar 2010

This printer is great! It came with 110 and 220 cords and is very small. I am in the army and do not have a lot of space where I am so I couldn't have ordered a better printer!

Printer works as advertised 17 Jun 2010
By Timothy J. Hower - Published on
This printer worked good. The only problem and it is a problem typical of ink jets is that the ink cartridge will gum up and need to be replaced even if it's not empty if you don't use it often enough.
