A straightforward printer without the bells and whistles !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon Pixma IP 4950 Inkjet Colour Printer (Personal Computers)
My wife makes greetings cards and try as we may we have not been able to find a printer which will take card of any reasonable thickness.
I am a keen photographer (I was once a professional) and wanted a printer which would produce quality prints. We searched around--willing to spend at least £400 if necessary to find something which would meet our demands.
Nowhere could we find a top loading printer which would take card. Most seem to load from a bottom tray meaning anything thicker than a couple of sheets of paper and lights start to flash.
By chance I came across a Canon iP4950 in an electrics store which was going into administration. I bought one purely for the print spec (and the bargain price) and was astounded. Once my wife saw it's top loading facility we printed on her heaviest quality card and she had to have one, hence the latest purchase.
Yes, you can buy printers which will do everything from sending faxes to brewing tea, the Canon iP4950 does none of that. It prints. It's a printer and nothing more but unless you do go in for the top priced machines you will not get better quality as Canon printers have the same spec throughout their under £400 range. Happy bunny ? I'm delighted.
