Expert Reviews

Canon PIXMA iP100 Reviews

Expertreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA iP100 and writes;
“Unlike dedicated compact photo printers, the iP100 can print normal documents on plain paper. We expected this to be little more than an afterthought but, to our surprise, text quality was excellent. Standard A4 text documents printed at a fast 7.9ppm with clear, well-defined text. Draft prints were a little faster at 8.7ppm, with little drop in quality; text was only slightly paler than full-quality prints. The mixed colour document speed of 2.2ppm compares well with most full-sized inkjets.”
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Canon PIXMA iP100 and writes;
“Text quality was also impressive. In draft mode text was readable down to very small font sizes and there was little ink bleed even on fairly cheap paper. In high-quality mode, text was comparable with that you’d expect from a laser printer.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA iP100 and writes;
“Our photographic test piece came out very well, with plenty of shadow detail and sharp foregrounds, in all the right hues. Colour variations are smooth and there are no obvious dither patterns. Colours are bright, without looking unnatural, and overall photo prints from this portable printer are well up to the standard of its desktop companions.”

“Document print quality from the black, pigmented-ink cartridge was clean and almost laser-like in quality. Coloured documents also printed out very well with even solid colours and accurate registration of text on coloured backgrounds…”

Canon PIXMA iP100 User Reviews

Very nice portable printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“Cannon has produced a very nice portable printer. The print quality is excellent for this class printer and the print speed is very good. The printer fits in our bag with the notebook computer so it’s 100 percent portable. We bought the Bluetooth adaptor thinking that our notebook computer also had a built in Bluetooth capability.” – by Craig S. Holmes

Wonderful Portable Printer! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The Pixma works flawlessly in Windows 7 and is a far more sophisticated, slicker machine than the BJ 85 and far more solidly built. Another feature which makes it far superior is the built in seal in the machine which keeps the ink from drying out. In the old BJ’s that was a constant problem and I had all kinds of special Canon cannisters to prevent the ink from drying up, which never worked very well…” – by L. Phillips

Perfect for those who work in their truck. | Rating: ★★★★★
“This printer is perfect for anyone who works in their truck (or car)and needs to be able to print on the run. I don’t know about its features and I don’t care about its print speed. I know that it is small, easy to store, easy to use and prints very well! As with any electronic item with a lot of moving parts I would store it in something that provide some cushion.” – by Stephen Matcha

perfect netbook printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I needed a compact printer for occasional use with wireless Samsung netbook in the bedroom, and this was the best-rated of those under $200. Setup was easy with the clear & thorough illustrated instructions, and printing has been fast and trouble-free. I adjusted the print quality so it doesn’t use too much ink.” – by cat-bear

Great Improvement over prior portable printers, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This is my fourth portable printer and by far, the best! It’s not only handy, light, and small — it has great print quality and none of the quirks of the previous models. I highly recommend this printer to those who need a lightweight portable printer.” – by Mr. Thomas E. Gackle

iP100 Excellent Color Printer, Mono Too, | Rating: ★★★★★
“in addition to color photo printing the IP100 also has excellent text mono printing for things like notes, boarding passes, etc I find the print quality at least as good as the HL-2140 laser printer, maybe a bit better. The size and weight seem fine to me. I don’t plan to buy a battery pack though. The power adapter is rated at 100/240V like many other Canon products so you can use a simple power plug adapter with it in Europe.” – by Art

Excellent printer for the frequent traveler., | Rating: ★★★★★
“I used the Canon iP90 for about 3 years before it failed and posted a permanent “waste ink absorber is full” message. So I replaced it with an iP100 and it works very well. I recently talked to an ex-Canon tech support person regarding the “waste ink absorber …” message. She recommends removing the ink cartridges before getting on a plane. Apparently the pressure changes force ink out of the cartridge filling up the absorber more quickly than usual.” – by Michael Baker

New printer case recommendation.. | Rating: ★★★★★
“As another reviewer noted the printer does not come with a case. The CaseMate Glovez 15″ case is no longer available, but the Case Logic MacBook Pro 15″ sleeve fits the Ip100 perfectly (with room for the optional battery to be attached) and has an outside zipped pocket that accommodates the power adaptor and an USB cable…perfect fit!” – by Paul Brainerd

Don’t mistake compact for low-quality. The iP100 produces spectacular photos at 9600 x 2400 dpi.

The printer also supports the PictBridge interface for connecting compatible digital cameras and printing photos directly — without a PC.

There is no need to worry that you weren’t first able to touch up a photo when printing directly from the camera; Canon’s Auto Image Fix lets you automatically correct for exposure, color, brightness, and contrast.
