Really good cartridges, I've been through a lot of these. The IP100 is a really good colour printer as well as being very compact and the price of these cartridges means it's a good way to produce a lot of colour material.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great compact simple A4 photo printer, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been struggling to find a printer that could reliably handle a variety of media, eg thick card, and do good quality images. Most printers are way too complicated and increasingly they just fail completely when asked to print on anything slightly unusual (like double-sided leaflet paper or postcard/business card blanks). So I sent back my latest sub 100 all-singing printer in disgust and bought this rather expensive portable printer, partly because I previously had an ancient ip80 which I bought second hand and lasted very well untill I left it too long without use and the print head clogged.

It's very simple, you put paper in the top and print comes out the front, so it's a direct paper path with no fancy options but I've used it for printing on thick card and (manual) double sided print with no problems. The print quality is superb, even on the standard setting it's better than the slow high quality setting on the Brother printer I've been trying, it's quite fast enough and the only glitch has been that it won't feed a thick card if it's the last sheet in the tray, so as long as there's a few sheets behind to lift it slightly it seems fine.

So a simple printer, so small it takes up no space in my small home office, works beautifully and we'll be taking it touring in our little caravan to print photos and keep up with other stuff while on a long trip. Some have complained about the cost of battery etc but unless you want to print off invoices in the middle of a field it's not an issue. If you shop around you can buy a 12V multi-adaptor that will power this or a laptop in your car and isn't expensive.

Great that Canon are continuing the tradition of portable printers going back to the BJ10. There was a time when all bubble jet printers were as simple and compact as this. Something has gone badly wrong.

Jim Dunlop Tortex picks are precise, last a reasonable time and come in good range of graded thickness. This supplier provides a good number of picks, neatly packaged, for a very good price. What's not to like?

1.0 out of 5 stars Format all wrong so can't read it, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't know what's going on, I love Bettina Selby's books but can't read this on tablet or Kindle as it's in a strange image format which displays the page far too small.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you need when you need it., 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought one each of these plus a polarity checker. Only needed it twice so far as most sites have modern connectors but great to be ready for any hookup opportunity, like pitched in a friend's garden in France.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal if you have a lot of electric kit in a small space, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two of these when setting up an office in our house as it was easier to install two socket trays and double the capacity with this than install four separate twin sockets. All worked fine and I'd use them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Compact, easy to use, seems to be accurate. We use a different scale for measuring individual items accurately but this is great for checking packed baggage and useful when away from home with some extra souvenirs and a per-bag weight limit

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to keep the burglars guessing, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted something to turn on the lights in a believable way while we were away from home. Easy to set up and we weren't burgled so 100% successful (so far :o) Three was the right number for our house.

I enjoyed this, thoughtful story that develops along believable lines and deals with the real issues in ordinary lives with just enough whimsy to keep you engaged.
