I have rewritten this review to try to make it more helpful (I am pretty new to this).

At approx £30 it is an affordable printer that really does produce great prints.

*********PRINTING QUALITY***********
This a great wee printer that has photo lab print quality. I found that it does deliver a high 4800*x1200dpi print resolution using a FINE Cartridge and 2pl ink droplets. I do have to say that I found the end result to be good in detail and vibrant in colour.
It was quite fast at printing the documents and the text was sharp.
I can easily print out approx 20 pages per minite in black and white, thanks to the additional black cartridge. Or for colour up to 16 pages per minute. I feel it would be an ideal item for homework, business reports and all your correspondence.

Another advantage with this printer that I like is the fast borderless photo printing with a photo lab quality 10x15cm borderless photo in approximately 70 seconds in the standard mode. Also it has the advantage of fast borderless photo printing on a range of sizes right up to A4, with Easy-PhotoPrint.
The Canon's ChromaLife100 system delivers beautiful photographs with enhanced durability up to 100 years (or so they say, I don't think I'll be around to dispute it !!!).

As with all printers it is better to use the FINE Cartridge, genuine Canon inks and genuine Canon photo paper. However you can use other companies inks that are compatible. I have done this and can't really see the difference.

Another plus for this product that I like is the Easy-to-use software which is essential to get the most out the printer. I can print beautiful digital photos in just a few clicks with the Easy-PhotoPrint. I can also can create and print albums, calendars, print on stickers and also easily print basic layouts using Easy-LayoutPrint.
Another thing I like and you really must check out is the perfect web printouts without the loss of page edges with Easy-WebPrint.

Personally speaking I very much like the design of this printer and feel it is very stylish in design. It fits very easily into any surroundings. The PIXMA iP1800 is a very deep black and has a mirror finish and the corners are in matte black.

I thought I would put down some of the main features of this printer as a guide (you can get much more from any dealer) -
* Photo lab quality: max. 4800x1200dpi*
* Fast document printing with sharp text
* Prints a photo lab quality 10x15cm borderless photo in approx. 70 seconds
* ChromaLife100 system for long-lasting, beautiful photos
* Easy-to-use software included

I really do like this printer. It is good to look at, prints quickly and the quality of the prints are really good. For the money I paid I really couldn't ask for anything more.

I hope this rewritten review has been helpful and I would appreciate your feedback.
