Excerpt: I received the Canon PIXMA Photo Printer for free when I purchased a PC. My first impressions were fine, but how long will it work. Funny thing, it has been six months and this little printer works like a charm. Who says, free isn't a good thing. The photo color prints are in my opinion photo store quality. The documents I have printed are crisp and while it is not laser printing. It would take an expert to detect the difference.
Excerpt: The Canon Pixma iP1800 is Canon's entry-level inkjet photo printer, which is clear if you take a gander at its price tag. You can pick up a Canon Pixma iP1800 for around £30, and this printer is equipped with the bare essentials to perform its duties: a sheet feeder, a dual ink-cartridge system, a USB port to connect the printer to your PC, and a roller that spits out your photos. Despite this minimal set of features, the Canon Pixma iP1800 won't disappoint.
Conclusion: The iP1800 received four stars in What's New, Shopper July 2007. It does everything you'd want from a simple printer and is very affordable. However, the cost of replacement ink cartridges is prohibitively high if you plan on printing more than the occasional page. Because its ink prices are higher than those of other printers here, we've given it three stars.
Summary: With its decent print speeds, serviceable print quality, and great software package, the Canon Pixma iP1800 is a good choice for an inexpensive inkjet printer for home users with basic printing needs.
Pros: Decent print quality and speed for the price, Inexpensive inkjet printer, Great software bundle, Supports Vista
Excerpt: Remplaçant la Pixma 1700 , la Pixma 1800 se situe dans l'entrée de gamme Canon. Aussi, elle ne s'embarrasse pas de fonctionnalités évoluées, ce qui l'autorise à être commercialisée à petit prix. Elle utilise seulement deux cartouches d'encre, une pour le noir, l'autre pour les couleurs (cyan, magenta, jaune) et permet uniquement d'imprimer en USB contrairement à ses aînées (comme la Pixma 6700D par exemple).
