Excerpt: Canon's PIXMA line has become synonymous with top of the line printers in a wide array of formats. Their iP100 mobile printer continues the tradition with this easily portable unit that measures about a foot wide, weighs in at about four pounds and can fit in just about any bag or briefcase.
Conclusion: The Canon Pixma iP100 is easily the best portable inkjet printer you can buy, reviews say. Although the price is high and some have issues with the paper feed, you'll get good-quality, speedy prints from a machine that's light enough to tote around.
Pros: Portable and lightweight, Good text, photo prints, Can print directly from cameras
Summary: The only reason we hesitate to recommend the iP100 is its price: At $249, the Canon Pixma iP100 is expensive. Some all-in-ones, including Canon's Editors' Choice-winning Pixma MP Series, offer comparable quality and speed for less money.
Summary: We would have liked some better connection options and the battery’s bulk may be annoying for some, but the iP100 is an excellent travel companion. The iP100 is a competitive option for meeting your portable printing needs.
Pros: Good print quality, fast speeds, decent consumable costs
Cons: No media card slot, awkward battery pack, a little pricey
Summary: The combination of small size and light weight, together with the respectable print speed, make this printer an ideal companion for a business laptop. Because it doesn’t hang around when printing it is possible to turn out printed pages from a presentation without making participants wait...
Pros: The output from the printer is consistently good after some fiddling with the print parameters. Images printed tended to be a little darker than on screen. Print speed is good, faster than some standard photo printers. The black ink is pigment and the colours are Chromalife 100, so print fade sho...
Cons: The price is inexplicably high. In the US this machine sells for AUD $258. Why does it cost $200 more here? Neither GST nor market size will justify this difference. And American reviewers are critical of what they consider a high price in their shops!
Summary: It isn't cheap compared to standard printers, but the Canon Pixma iP100 has the highest resolution available in the mobile printer market and prints at an impressive speed to boot. If you simply must have a printer with you at all times, the iP100 should be the do-it-all at your side.
Pros: High-resolution ink nozzles produce excellent prints, Significant speed improvements over previous model, Retains familiar design
Cons: No Wi-Fi or carrying case options, Lacks integrated media card reader, High price tag relative to those of desktop printers
