Their mobile app is probably one of the best printer apps out there at the moment when compared to their competitors. It supports every major computing and mobile platform out there, including Google Cloud Print for Android and ChromeOS devices and AirPrint for Apple devices.. Wifi set up was easy and there’s also an ethernet port on board.
Printing is fast and very high quality. It has a six ink system for enhancing photo contrast and image quality. 4×6 borderless prints come out in less than 30 seconds. Text is very sharp and /almost/ laser quality even on cheap paper.
But those six inks come at a high price – about $86 or so to replace the entire set. And it devours ink – especially when printing photos where ink covers all of the page. The ink cartridges even have a light built into them which adds unnecessary cost.
We are beginning to see alternative consumable models being developed by competitors. Epson has a big ink tank on some of their new printers and charges a reasonable price for replacement bottles (although the printer itself costs more). HP has a new ink by mail service that requires a monthly fee but costs less than buying ink cartridges through retailers. It would be nice to see Canon start experimenting in a new business model as well.
