Excerpt: Canon's Pixma iP3300 is the cheapest printer on test at just £46, but that certainly doesn't mean it's the weakest. The quality of its output is worthy of a much higher price tag, with flawless text printing thanks to the pigment-based black ink. There's no visible spidering, and the thick nature of the black characters gives text a solid look that we like a lot.
Excerpt: Canon's PIXMA iP3300 costs only £3 more than Epson's Stylus D78, but it's in a different league. It's less basic than the four printers that cost less, but at £46 it's still easily affordable. The iP3300 prints with four colours, which, like those of the D78, come in separate ink tanks. Before you insert them, you need to slot the print heads into place. This is a simple, once-only job.
