Canon PIXMA iP1600 reviews & specifications

The PIXMA iP1600 Bubble Jet printer lets you enjoy quality photo and document printing at home. As part of the PIXMA range, it is built with FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology which ejects consistent 2 picolitre ink droplets with remarkable accuracy for smoother, sharper and more detailed images.

Together with high print resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi, fast 6″ x 4″ photo print speed of approximately 70 seconds and borderless photo prints up to A4 size, the PIXMA iP1600 is the perfect home printer for students or the whole family at a very affordable price.

REVIEWS (last update: 18.09.05)

M. David Stone from PC Magazine gave 3 and 1/2 stars out of 5 to Canon Pixma iP1600 and wrote:

“Photos earned a very good rating, with true photo quality for most individual images. In our tests, we saw several problems printing in monochrome that we didn’t see with color photos, including banding, relatively obvious dithering, and slight posterization, with sudden changes in shading in areas that should change gradually. We consider these problems minor, however, and most people should find the iP1600 suitable for printing snapshots, with the possible exception of monochrome photos. On the plus side, with Canon’s new generation of ink and paper, the company claims a 100-year lifetime for photos kept in an archival-quality photo album in plastic sleeves, or 30 years for framed photos behind glass—claims that Canon has never made before.”
