Canon Inkjet Printer

Introduction

Canon inkjet printers are multifunctional machines that have printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine capabilities. Many, if not most, of Canon's printers use inkjet technology, versus other models that use laser technology. Because of this large selection consumers may have difficulty determining which printer can best meet user needs.

For example, users may not consider the number of pages per minute that an inkjet printer can produce. It's only after getting a printer home, connecting it to a computer and then starting a complex and prolonged printing job that users discover that the printer has a little PPM. The average PPM across all inkjet printers is in the high teens to the low 20s, so the higher, the better, including for printer inkjet Canon brand.

Owners may appreciate or ignore these features, depending on personal needs, but in assessing the best and highest quality printer, consumers should consider the total package. The following three printers are examples of the best machines that Canon produces, per the expertise and insight of the editors at CNet.com.

Nonetheless, the editors offer objective and authoritative reviews it of this inkjet printer model, that went out the good and the bad. In particular, editors note that there is a "clear ink cartridge" function, that improves the quality. Anyone who has experience with this printing technology, whether it be printer inkjet Canon brand or another brand, knows that inkjet printer nozzles need occasional maintenance. If owners neglect these nozzles, printing quality will eventually suffer, or worse, the printer the cones and operational. So although the average user is unhappy with the machine, based on the star rating system, the editors point out there is this unique feature which maintains the overall functioning of this machine.
