Canon i70 Reviews

CNET reviews the Canon i70 and writes;
“the i70 isn’t just fast, it also excels in text and graphics print quality. On plain paper, text looked sharp with just a little fuzziness here and there with small fonts. Plain-paper graphics appeared bright and detailed, with only a bit of random fading on some of the images. When we switched to Canon’s recommended high-resolution inkjet paper, both text and graphics improved in quality. Neither was perfect, naturally; we could still pick out some hairy letters.”

Canon i70 User Reviews

quiet and fast | Rating: ★★★★★
“I just got this printer today and so far am very happy with it. Luckily, I had a spare USB cable (it comes without one!) Setup was easy and worked just as described in the manual (win xp). The print software Easy print is truely easy to use and works really well. In less than 30 minutes I had installed the printer, and 5 nice and crips photos printed (the printer comes with a trial package of 4×6 glossy paper). The most amazing feature is how quiet and fast it prints.” – by A Customer

Great Little Printer!, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I’m not a professional photographer but was very happy with the photo results I got out of the printer. Not bad for not being listed as a “Photo Printer” I think. I know, everyone’s different, but I would highly recomend this printer. Especially to people who don’t like clutter like me. That design is awsome and ironically matches my desktop computer, and scanner in color.” – by Stevie D

“The photo quality may not appeal to shutterbugs, especially if NOT printed on photo paper, but for general office workers with little desk space or for folks with a packed travel roster, the i70 is a pretty safe bet. The ink costs may sky rocket quite quickly if you print colored stuff often. If, like me, your general printing is B&W, then this is a great buy.” – by Shashank Tripathi

A no-brainer to use with the camera, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I’m lazy. I did not feel like installing the driver on my laptop. So, I plugged the Canon ELPH camera directly into the printer, picked a photo, and printed it. Easy Peasy. I don’t know how professionals feel about the print quality of this printer, but it is perfectly adequate for small family type snapshots. It is the size of a hardback book, which is very nice if you don’t have a lot of room in the house for yet another gizmo.” – by E. Richards

“It is fast, prints great,and is very small and light. I travel a lot and always have my notebook computer with me. Their have been many times that I wished that I could print something in the hotel room. Now I can. The i70 fits in the same case as my compaq notebook and now goes with me everywhere. Another thing is the cost of the ink is great. I found a web site that seels compatable ink for this printer at a great price.” – by A Customer

This Printer is Fantastic! | Rating: ★★★★★
“This TINY printer is amazing. Its whisper quiet, fast, and prints with exceptional quality (both photos and documents in color and B/W). I have no complaints whatsoever. Also, you can start printing virtually immediately after taking it out of the box – easy with USB cable. I highly recommend this printer to anyone.” – by A Customer

One of the Best Purchases I have Made, | Rating: ★★★★★
“It prints black text fast as anything. I do a lot of heavy printing and am still on both of my cartridges since I purchased it about a month ago. The one thing that I was worried about was printing pictures. I use glossy photo paper for pictures and they turn out great. It is small, portable and as good as a full size printer. I have recommended this printer to everyone. It is more than I could have asked for in a printer this size.” – by A Customer

Small Printer-Big Success, | Rating: ★★★★★

It has all of the attributes I needed-lightweight,super easy to use, fast as the office rumor mill, and a great print job. I highly recommend this product to anyone fortunate enough to have purchased it.” – by Marilyn Smith
