Excellent all round printer at a great price

AdvantagesCheap but high quality

DisadvantagesNo 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 I've ever had, true i never spend much on printers but this definitely surprised me with the quality. So what's it good for you ask? well here we go; ..." Read review

Canon Pixma IP4200

AdvantagesQuiet, fast, square, a paper tray plus a feeder and excellent prints.

DisadvantagesSlightly bigger than others of the same price range.

"My previous printer was a Canon i850 - not a bad little printer - but it gave up recently so I started shopping around for a replacement. I half-heartedly looked at other makes, but the price and quality of the Canon printers, together with the price of their cartridges, always drew me back to them. They have a large range that I considered - the IP4200 was the cheapest at around £60, then the IP5200 and I also considered the MP500, an "all-in-one" ..." Read review

Excellent quality printing

AdvantagesPrinting Quality

DisadvantagesNoise

"...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 unlike our other one which is huge- for the canon, when you don't need to use it, you can simply shut the lids down which is good because it makes it more compact and prevents any dust and dirt from getting in and damaging the thing so the ..."

A good printer for a value price.

Advantageseasy to use, 5 seperate ink cartridges

Disadvantagesdoes not have a screen

"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 using the easy print tool box this was very easy to do and the results were amazing. This software allows you to use any photo or picture, you can also type ..." Read review

Good printer but watch the cartridges!!!!

AdvantagesPrints well

DisadvantagesChipped cartridges a nightmare.

"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 spectacularly exciting software. It has NASTY chipped cartridges which make cheap running a pain! It's quite chunky - you could almost have put a scanner on ..." Read review

great performer

Advantagesindividual ink tanks

Disadvantagesnone

"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 silver plastic case feels solid and looks less boxy than other recent Canon models. Canon PIXMA iP4200 printer - Features The Canon PIXMA iP4200 is ..." Read review

Extremely happy with my Pixma iP4200

AdvantagesGood quality low price, with individual inks

DisadvantagesJust a bit bulky

"...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 and had quite an impressive spec, but I was a little dubious that such a cheap printer would perform well. Needn't have worried: Easy to set up if a little on the large side. Has two paper trays so you can have two types of paper in the printer at the same time (I keep photo paper ..." Read review

Economic printer

AdvantagesPictbridge compatable

DisadvantagesOnly has USB connectivity

"Great printer, easy to use and fast printout. Has usb connectivity making it plug and play. Pict bridge connection if you have a suitable digital camera. It seems to be economical with ink useage and the inks arent as expensive as alot of models on the market. With it having several ink cartridges you only need to replace the one that is empty whereas others if the colour goes you cant just replace the cartridge that the colour has run out of. I ..."

Good printer, with excellent printing abilities

AdvantagesQuite cheap, decent photo prints, 5 cartridges, two feeding trays, printing on CD's

DisadvantagesFast, but only in draft setting. Replacement cartridges can be expensive

"...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 feeders... on gravity feeder on top and a bottom drawer. Switching between the two is easy with the press of a button on the front of the printer. It makes use of 5 different cartridges: two black, one Magenta, one blue and one ..." Read review

Quick review of Canon PIXMA iP4200

"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.

Superb quality and speed.

AdvantagesQuality, speed, double sided printing

DisadvantagesNoise 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 two paper feed trays, ability to print double sided and print CDs. It's design is also pretty compact - you can shut the casing up when you don't need tp ..." Read review

Great!

Advantagesfast high quility prints

Disadvantagesflimsy bottom paper tray

"I brought this printer about 6 months ago as i thought it was time to upgrade. The thing that strikes me about the printer is that it has two paper tray's which is great because you can have photo paper in the bottom tray and normal plain paper in the top. It also has doble sided printing which also stuck me for the price. But the best thing about the printer has to be the speed and the quility of the print's. The reason why the quilty is so good ..."

Good quality + CD/DVD printing

Advantageseconomical

DisadvantagesA bit of messing around to use third party cartidges

"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). I shopped around at the time & paid around £90. Cartridges were a bit expensive, but third party cartridges are now available & remember that the use of four separate ink tanks prevents a lot of wastage. The installation of third party cartridges does require the removal & refitting ..." Read review

Canon Pixma ip4200 review

AdvantagesExcellent prints

DisadvantagesProne to breaking down regularly and expensive cartridges

"I bought this printer in December and have had nothing but problems with it. The first one was when one of the cartridges stoped being recognised by the printer meaning I could not use it at all. I returned it and the cartridge was replaced and the printer worked fine for about two weeks. Now the sheet feeder has stopped working properly. Both the top and the tray feeder jam every time I try to print. I have checked the printer and can't find the ..." Read review
