Canon Pixma iP2200

Together with the iP1600, the iP2200 makes up Canon's entry level for colour printing.

OK, it's just an entry-level printer, so you shouldn't expect blazing speeds, but the iP4200 does fairly well with a manufacturer's rating of up to 17 pages per minute in colour, and up to 22 in black and white. And the price is certainly hard to beat.

If you're dazzled by the great display and connectivity features appearing on today's colour printers, this unit will probably leave you cold.

Bottom line
If you're looking for an affordable (before you get to replacing the consumables, that is) workhorse that will churn out the prints, this might just be your device.
