"The ink is not good"

The printing quality is not very good, satisfactory, I do not like the ink, when you use highlighter to highlight the words in the documents printed out by this print, those words will become blurred. Furthermore, when one of the color ran out, you will need to replace the entire ink tank, because three colors are combined in an ink tank. I would recommend this printer to anyone who are on tight budget and who dont use highlighter to highlight their works, the ink is quite cheap compared with others. Do not recommend this printer for any design purposes, not suitable, the color is not very nice, but it is alright for graphs, charts or something simple. Definitely not photos.

    Could do with a bit more detail on here - you fail to mention that this is a super-budget printer and it still knocked the socks off my old Epson - for the money I think it's perfectly adequate. What do you expect for under £40? Tom.

    Welcome to Ciao. You make some good points in your review. If you expand on these with more information, this would help the reader and achieve higher ratings. Read other people's reviews to get a feel for what is needed in a review. Above all don't be discouraged by low ratings to begin with - keep writing. Maureen

Product Information : Canon S 200x

Manufacturer's product description

Introducing the Bubble Jet S200x, the affordable printer that combines extraordinary quality with unsurpassed versatility and ease of use - whether you're printing text documents or full-color images. Canon's S200x Bubble Jet printer gives you extraordinary 2880 dpi resolution. High resolution means that this printer can lay more ink down on the page, giving you brighter colors, exceptional detail and superb quality prints. Canon uses high-color, dye-based color inks and pigment-based black inks. So even the least expensive Canon printers benefit from a wider range of colors for better photo images. The S200x is packed with software and hardware tools to get the best out of your pictures every time. Vivid Photo technology makes full use of the printer's capabilities beyond your monitor's color limits, making printed color images more appealing to the eye. Canon Easy-PhotoPrint software uses Exif Print technology to improve the quality of Exif Print compliant digital images by using information stored by the camera when the photograph was taken. What's more, Canon inks are made to last, giving you 25 years' light-fastness when you use Canon Photo Paper Pro (PR 101). Canon's relay feeding and bi-directional printing technologies mean that the S200x can print up to 5 pages per minute monochrome and 3 ppm in color. The S200x can print on a wide variety of media from 4" x 6" cards to banners. Or push your creative limits and make prints on coated and glossy photo paper or cards to produce T-shirt transfers or giant banners. Canon's Print Advisor helps less experienced users select the best possible settings - every time - including paper type and print quality.
