Canon PIXMA iP5200

“For everyday text and color document printing tasks the Pixma iP5200 is an excellent printer and very fast. It’s also very quiet and the built-in duplexer (two-sided printing) is great for web page or document printouts and saves lots of paper. It’s also great for printing double-sided photo albums, sales flyers, catalogs or whatever. The top and bottom paper trays are a real convenience, use the auto sheet feeder on the top for plain paper and the covered cassette for photo paper where it’s kept away from dust and etc. What I do is put my most-used 4×6-inch photo paper in the cassette and then drop in the bigger, letter-size sheets of photo paper in the upper feed when needed. If you’re on a printing spree, both the top and bottom trays can be loaded with up to 150 sheets of plain paper each and the printer can be set to auto-switch trays when one goes empty.

Canon’s photo printers are still the fastest of the fast. The iP5200 cranks out 4×6″ borderless prints in about 36 seconds when connected to the computer. When connected to a camera in Pictbridge mode it makes the same 4×6″ print from a 7-megapixel image in 1:33. It makes a full-size 8.5×11” borderless glossy print in the highest quality possible in just 2:10 from the computer — via PictBridge it took 3:15. “
