Functional. Nothing too special. Hard to color manage.

Summary: I bought this photo printer for a color managing class in Photography. I wasn't looking to do my own color managing but the class required a photo printer so I looked for the most affordable option which brought me here. Its your basic no frills photo printer. The ink lasts for about 20 full page prints max. I found it difficult to get the printer to match the colors of my images even with the ColorMunki tool.
Summary: This printer is okay - a decent value for the price paid. No bells or whistles. One frustrating thing that is apparently common now among all printers and brands is the fact that you can't just print a simple page without the printer taking what seems like 5 minutes to "prepare" to print, with noises and moving parts apparently flying back and forth. Then, after printing, it has to do the same thing. What the heck is going on in there?
Conclusion: It's a good-quality, inexpensive printer. It prints out high quality looking photos and nice looking print. Having said that, it uses ink pretty quickly and the replacement cost of ink is high.
Summary: WE have these printers and are fairly happy with them. They print a fairly nice photo and do text excellently. What we like more was that this printer has a OPTION to print only Black without the use of the Color Cartridge in case you are low or out of it (found in the Maintenance section under "ink cartridges settings" ). And this a good idea because this printer loves eating Color ink up quickly.
Summary: The main attraction of this entry level printer is its small footprint. It's not as small (or costly) as a portable printer, but it doesn't take as much desk space as most other photo inkjet printers. It doesn't have a paper tray to catch prints. This helps keep the footprint small, but you do have to watch that letter size prints don't run into anything else on the table and squish up.
Excerpt: I am an office worker. I am very familiar using computers and devices, printer including one. I have used many brands, like HP, EPSON, CANON, etc. Now I use Canon brand printers, Canon Pixma iP2702. This printer has a good picture quality. This product has three levels of print quality : low, standart and high. This printer is fast at work and has good colour sensitivity. I taught myself because this printer ease to use. I buy these products for $50.5.
Excerpt: Be prepared for yet more random sub-headings! :D Reason For Purchase ~ ‘Creative Writing’ Printer on the blink and reams of coursework, no time to mess about! As I’ve yet to come into those elusive millions as Delboy would say, I had to go for something cheap and cheerful. In fact, I went online to Tesco Direct, came across a £30 Canon printer with scanner and decided this was fine for my needs. When I went in store to pick it up, found it was further reduced to £25!
Pros: Cheap, well designed, effective results and sleek aesthetics .
