Canon's Pixma iP4820 single-function photo printer produces presentation-quality photos and documents, but the competition offers scan and fax functionality, not to mention extras like Wi-Fi and printing from a USB flash drive, for the same price. We recommend the Epson WorkForce 520 or even the Canon Pixma MP495 instead.
It isn't cheap compared to standard printers, but the Canon Pixma iP100 has the highest resolution available in the mobile printer market and prints at an impressive speed to boot. If you simply must have a printer with you at all times, the iP100 should be the do-it-all at your side.
The Canon Pixma iP2600 is an excellent option for buyers looking to print their personal photos and text documents. We wish it had external ports for direct image uploading (although we're not surprised it doesn't), but you'll be more than satisfied with this printer's ability to deliver quality photos at a low price.
Epson's Stylus Pro R1900 13-inch-wide photo printer is great for scrapbookers who want to print with pigment ink, or advanced photographers who want to print large, but can't justify the expense of a pro-level printer.
We can't recommend the HP Photosmart D5360 when the competition's all-in-one offers a lot more for the same price.
The HP Photosmart D7460 offers compelling features--including a touch screen--for home users, but the competition offers better print quality.
The Canon Pixma iP90v is the Vista-enabled version of the older Pixma iP90 and offers nearly the same print speeds and quality. It's a very useful printer if you travel a lot and need to print often, but consider the purchase carefully because it's quite expensive.
With its decent print speeds, serviceable print quality, and great software package, the Canon Pixma iP1800 is a good choice for home users who want an inexpensive inkjet printer for basic printing needs.
If you're looking for a good, all-around printer for the home, the HP Photosmart D7160 is a decent choice. But if your focus is on photographs, you can do better for just a little more cash.
Epson's new dye-based 13-inch printer has style and prints large photos, but its black-and-white prints are less than perfect.
The HP Photosmart D7360 offers a varied selection of features, great print quality, and fast text prints, but if you need fast photo prints, look elsewhere. Otherwise, this is a decent option for amateur photo hobbyists.
The Epson Stylus Photo R380 offers a wealth of fun features and great print quality, making it a smart choice for amateur photo hobbyists.
Photographers will love the Canon Pixma iP6700D's speedy, high-quality photos, but sluggish, mediocre text output will be a turn-off for the SOHO/business crowd.
The Pixma iP6310D has the print quality and the features that make it an attractive photo printer, but for just a bit more money, you can get an all-in-one printer from Canon that has better quality and faster speeds.
Versatile stand-alone operation and good photo quality make the Canon Pixma iP6600D appealing for digital camera owners, but slow operation and mediocre text output mean it's a bad choice for SOHO or business use.
HP Photosmart Pro B9180
Autoduplexing, multiple input options, and acceptable photo and text quality make this printer a versatile choice for home and small-office users who aren't in a hurry.
Speed and economy make the HP Photosmart 8250 a reasonable choice for family photo printing.
