Excerpt: (1 items) Canon's Pixma iP4820 color inkjet printer does just about everything well, does it fairly quickly, and does it quietly. Though you could spend less than its $100 price on a competitor, some of those cheaper models can disappoint in their performance or their ink costs. The Pixma iP4820 is a better-balanced choice for home and student users.
Pros: Very good print quality, Two 150-sheet input trays, Automatic duplexing
Conclusion: I believe that a single function photo inkjet printer has a very small market to work with considering all the fancy inkjet all-in-ones, affordable single function lasers and cool dedicated photo printers out there for purchase. But if you are considering buying a single function photo inkjet printer, I would definitely recommend shelling out the extra $50 for the Canon Pixma iP4820 over the Canon Pixma iP2702.
Pros: Low initial cost, Good text quality, color photo quality, Low energy consumption (1 W in standby)
Cons: Off center draft prints, Expensive ink replacement, One connectivity option
Summary: Canon's Pixma iP4820 single-function photo printer produces presentation-quality photos and documents, but the competition offers scan and fax functionality, not to mention extras like Wi-Fi and printing from a USB flash drive, for the same price. We recommend the Epson WorkForce 520 or even the Canon Pixma MP495 instead.
Cons: Lacks memory card inputs and USB flash support; sluggish print speeds; lacks convenience features like networking and LCD display; competitive multifunction printers cost the same.
