Canon PIXMA iP2702 Reviews
Printerinfo reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“This printer had good color performance, producing accurate colors, especially after calibration. The detail of the prints it produced were somewhat lacking, though; edges and fine details were somewhat lost in the grain of the black ink. “
Expertreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“We were also very happy with the iP2702′s photo quality; dark areas, white tones and flesh colours weren’t quite as accurate as those from Canon’s more expensive photo printers, but all our pictures looked good enough to frame. Each 6x4in photo took a little over a minute and a half to print and costs around 19p on Canon Photo Paper Plus II.”
Computeractive reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“Print quality was good: photos printed clearly, with no sign of colour mismatching and with smooth colour transitions. Plain paper prints were also clear and sharp and ink bleed from the was minimal.”
Computershopper reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“Text output, at least, is very good—we saw sharp characters down to 5-point text. Plus, the business-graphics charts in our test document were clear and crisp, with no dithering. The Pixma iP2702’s color handling, however, could use some work.”
Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“This is quick for a photo print and there’s not a lot of difference between prints from the two modes. The Standard mode print is a little darker and some detail is lost in the shadows, but both are generally very good, with no noticeable colour cast and smooth colour gradations in areas of sky. Colour graphics are also well printed, though there are some noticeable dither patterns in some lighter colour fills. Colour prints on plain paper are generally bright and attention grabbing and black text is very clean and sharp. There’s nothing in the print out to make you want to look closer for signs of ink bleed. “
Printercomparison reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“..I was impressed by the color output by the iP2702; the colors were vibrant and fairly accurate as you can see from our sample balloon image below. I think the photos printed by the iP2702 are suitable for albums or frames, especially when printing high resolution digital images…”
Techradar reviews the Canon PIXMA iP2702 and writes;
“Image quality is also more than acceptable, considering there is only one colour inkwell. This means you won’t find the full depth of colours as found on more dedicated printers, but for the cost we felt quality was above average.”

Canon PIXMA iP2702 User Reviews
“I’ve owned it for 8 months now and its great, not one problem. It does not use a lot of ink to print out invoices and emails which is most of what I use it for. Its simple to use, easy to change ink cartridges. Hands down its the best printer I’ve ever used” – By knightwolff
“Hesitant at first not knowing what I was getting into but true to form, printer arrived on specified date and after downloading instructions, found that it was so easy to install and use the printer. If any problems arise, I return to instructions, follow them, which are minimal, and so easy to follow then problems fixed immediately.” – By seniorgal
Lives up to expectations
“The printer was easy to install and printed pictures and text at a decent speed. The pictures are good for this inexpensive printer.” – By Andrew J. Palusak
“When my old Epson photo printer broke (after about 3 years) I bought this Canon about a year ago as a replacement. It was very easy to set up with a set of cartridges included. The text and photo print quality ranges from very good to excellent.” – By Nathan
Fantastic Little Printer
“High quality printing: surprisingly good at higher quality settings but completely acceptable at economy setting. Reasonably fast: this printer will pump out the work at a fairly fast pace – I print large PP presentations and the printer does not slow me down.” – By TPM
Adequate if you have space limitations, | Rating:
“The photo quality is decent, but sometimes produces flat looking images like my portable PIXMA iP90v. You can’t expect more from three-color plus black inkjet printers. It runs a tad noisy and, in my experience thus far, uses up colored ink too quickly. The print speed is satisfactory. Black and white text prints out nice as do non-continuous tone graphics. “ – by G. Bjork

“The iP2702 Printer is an excellent Photo Printer at the price. The photos are professional looking. Canon has always been a very good product. It is very easy to set up and use. I would recommend it to any one. “ – by Raymond A. Hilliard
Good entry level printer, | Rating:
“This is a good entry level printer if you plan to do more text printing than photos. The ink containers are small and you won’t get a lot of photo’s printed out before you run out of ink. I would not buy this to print photos as there are better printers out there unless moeny is tight and you only print a few photos on a regular basis. This way it won’t run out of ink and empty your wallet as this is where most of your moeny will go after a while. “ – by R. LeBlanc
