ProCheap but high quality

ConsNo screen

I've always gone with HP for my printing needs and since ive got this I've been asking myself why. When I brought this printer a few months ago it cost me about £90 but i think its in the shops now for £60-£70 so its quite a cheap printer, therefore it must be rubbish? NO its the best printer...

ConsNoise

We recently purchased this printer because the price was good and we basically needed one. We came across the Canon PIXMA iP4200 because it looked good and the price wasn't that bad either (about less than £70). At first glance, it has a sleek and neat design, plus, it isn't all too bulky either...

After buying my canon ip4200 to replace an old printer I did not expect much from a printer costing so little, but I was pleasantly surprised. my first print job was a music cd that I had recorded for my wife, this was my first printable cd so i had to rely heavily on the bundled software. again...

Ok. This is another thing I don't actually own. It's the main computer I work on at school and I sort of know what I'm talking about because I'm in charge of IT. So I err....bought it. This'll be a brief one. It's good. It prints well, has an easy set-up and came with functional, if not...

This Canon Pixma iP4200 is the best printer I have ever owned, I have had Lexmark, HP and Epson printers in the past and been disappointed with them all for various reasons, when my last printer died, I went for this one, partly because of good reviews and partly for a new brand. The iP4200's...

I bought this printer after my HP Laserjet 1000 broke. I wanted to move in a new direction and chose a Canon IP 4200. It is a very good machine. It is quite fast, although I could only reach the rated speed when selecting the lowest print quality. This printer is very sturdy and it has two paper...

ProGood quality low price, with individual inks

ConsJust a bit bulky

Decided to change over from Lexmark when my yellow ink ran out and it would cost more to buy ink than to replace the printer. Anyway I decided to go for the Canon based purely on the fact that it had individual ink cartridges at around £8.00 each. The Pixma iP4200 was the cheapest I could find...

ProQuality, speed, double sided printing

ConsNoise is a drawback but I can live with it.

The Canon iP4200 is a simply outstanding printer for printing documents, letters and even photos alike. What suprised me most was the superb quality and the quickness. Plus, it's not like my Epson that took ages warming up and preparing for printing. The Canon's features are brilliant; there are...

I have had this printer for over a year now - I bought it when they had just hit the market. Looking at the price now brings a tear to my eye (£54 is an absolute bargain).

Not for me

published 16/08/2007

I find this printer poor. I've only used it occasionally at home with Canon cartridges, and now it won't recognise it's own cartridges! So I have to replace cartridges in the hope that the next cartridge will be better.
