5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value, 14 Dec 2009
This review is from: Canon PIXMA iP4700 Colour Printer (Electronics)
I've had an Epson photo printer for many years. Pretty good quality, but slow - and if you don't use it for a while you have to waste a lot of ink and time cleaning the nozzles. I was thinking of a very much more expensive Epson photo printer, but reviews say that although their prints are stunning, nozzle clogging is still a problem and the inks quite expensive (especially since there are extra colours). So I thought I'd try the Canon iP4700, but I was worried by the relatively low price (shop around) and not having more than the basic colours. What a nice surprise! It's fast, and the print quality is very good. Of course genuine Canon ink and paper are expensive, and that's how they make a profit. I might try other types of paper, but will stay with Canon ink - I don't want my prints to fade or to compromise print quality. (I do ordinary b&w printing on a cheap monochrome laser printer.) I just did some A4 prints of photos I took at a concert - the colours are excellent and the black backdrop is jet black. Canon's printing software for Macs was also a pleasant surprise - works well and is quick and easy to use for a variety of standard formats.
