This review is from: Canon PIXMA iP7220 Photo Inkjet Printer
Pros: This is my 2nd 7220; I have run the bejabbers out of it and still cranks out good results. The photos it prints are National Geographic Magazine quality. Be sure to use photo paper, of course. We just printed out our family history in Family Treemaker-65 double-sided sheets with text and photos. Looks like it came from a commercial printing company. I like to create my own greeting cards so I use card stock with no problem. I am totally satisfied with this printer.
Cons: Canon nails us with ink prices. There are online companies that provide ink cartridges that work well
Other Thoughts: Some have posted that it takes a long time to print. Well, not to me. Maybe a suggestion or two:
First, leave it on; don't turn it off after you are done with a print job. If you turn it off and on constantly, it goes through a complete nozzle cleaning process each time which can take 60-90 seconds and use more ink for the nozzle cleaning.
Second: There are quality settings; if you are only proofing, set it to "fast" and set to grayscale. The paper will shoot out.
If you want top photo quality set to that quality and use photo or coated paper. Of course it is going to take more time, but for the great result I don't think it is excessive, IMHO.
Third: The Canon printing software is terrible, which is typical for printers. I use Photoshop and CorelDraw, but there are excellent free editors out there that can enhance and print your photo, such as Gimp.
Pros: > Lightweight
> Simple to use
> Not fancy, just gets the job done dependably
> Very reasonably priced
Other Thoughts: This is the latest of several that I have purchased over 3 years. Every one has been dependable, and none have failed yet. I use two of these in my home for backups on each computer. I order these when I set up backup systems for my clients, and so far nobody has reported any problems with them. Very easy to use, the client has no "learning curve" with a complicated piece of equipment. These are also great when retrieving data off a drive that suffers a corrupted operating system and cannot boot into Windows. Not even necessary to shut down the computer; just turn the Orico off, insert the problem drive, turn it back on and wait a few seconds for Windows to find the drive & assign a letter in Explore. Easy.READ FULL REVIEW
