Conclusion: The Canon Pixma iP6000 is a throwback to an earlier generation of photo printers that did a good job with photos but not much else. Given its price, it's unacceptably slow for business applications, making it a reasonable choice only if you want a second printer specifically for photos.
Pros: Direct printing from memory cards and cameras. 2.5-inch LCD for previewing and editing photos. Reasonably fast performance and very good quality for photos.
Cons: Slow performance for business applications. Graphics suffer from extreme paper curl.
Excerpt: The 'D' in this PIXMA's model number stnads for 'Direct' and denotes that it includes a range of direct printing features. It has a colour LCD screen, a PictBridge USB port and memory card slots, although these support fewer formats than those of the HP printers and the Epson R300. As with the other six-ink printers here, the iP6000D supplements its four standard colours (black, yellow, magenta and cyan) with lighter magenta and cyan inks.
