Excerpt: This large-format inkjet is excellent for cost-sensitive small businesses and home offices. Top-notch results with plain paper, plus auto-duplex printing, make it one of the most versatile single-function inkjets you can buy.
Pros: Excellent-quality text on plain paper, Paper sizes up to 13x19 inches, Auto-duplex printing, Three paper paths
Cons: Inconsistent print speeds, Too large for most desks
Excerpt: Last month we reviewed HP's Officejet 7000 , an A3+ inkjet printer with print quality, performance and running costs to rival a laser printer. A3 colour prints are useful in office environments, but while an A3 colour laser costs upwards of £1,000, the Officejet 7000 costs just £185.
Summary: Canon's PIXMA iX7000 A3 inkjet printer isn't the best option for producing business documents on matte media. Though automatic duplexing and ethernet connectivity are certainly handy, restrictions with media input as well as its print speeds and overall output quality hamper this printer.
