The printer is just the perfect size to slide in to my briefcase, and adds little weight. It's battery operation is really what caught my eye, it says you can print about 100 pages with a full charge, but I think its a bit less than that. However, the battery takes little time to charge.
I was not aware it would come with as much ink as it did, came with 2 color cartidges, 1 black (small), and 1 black (large), as well as two trays that they are held in. The Fast IrDA is such a fabulous thing, wireless printing all the way. I decided to purchase a USB cable, its much easier some times using the cable then the IrDA (Infared) port. The quality of the documents is fantastic, matching (and beating!) my desktop printers at home. The speed is good, considering this is a portable printer. The only real drawback is that it is a single sheet feed printer, unless you buy the paper loader, which I will surely do! This is THE BEST portable printer I've found on the market, it is well worth the money.
This is a small update, I've been using the printer for about 5 months now, and everything has gone smoothly. I purchased the auto-sheet feeder from Canon (directly, from their web site) and it performs just like a normal desktop printer would! I'm still loving it.
It's a truly amazing product. I can't think of another computer peripheral that still costs the same as it did 4 years ago -- and is still worth the high price. Why can't anyone else match it at a lower price? Darned if I know!
Pro: Lightweight 2Lbs(with battery), USB, battery powered, comes with AC adapter, size is small to fit in a back pack. Works with my Tablet PC software.
Con: High quality mode is slow compared to today's printers as well as resolution. Old type of feeding one page at a time. Could not get the IR to work. I suspect that my computer IR is not compatible. I just carry a very small USB cable.
I have looked at the current portable printers and they are all 5-6LBS. Yes they probably have great quality and photos but I don't need that. My purpose for this printer is to do quick print outs of 2 to 3 page reports, drafts and boarding passes. It fits so well in a computer bag with my slate and some paper.
The company that can produce a better quality printer with this size and weight will make money. That is probably why this printer has not dropped much in price even used. It's the year 2006 and it sells higher than the current canon and hp used.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a mobile printer that's as small and sturdy as this one is. It's incredibly compact, extremely light, has a cartridge for scanning and all it needs is an AC adapter. The ink is very small and is still available even today.
True story: I brought this printer with me to English class on the days we'd write in class. Since I'm a messy handwriter, and hey I'm pretty lazy, the teacher allowed me to type it on the computer. I pulled this out and printed it right there in class, then turned it in.
ON a side note, I'm disappointed that there's a lack of printers that are portable 11 years later. This is somewhat loud when printing, but I had imagined much smaller technology by now.
IT WAS VERY EASY TO INSTALL AND EASY TO WORK WITH. THE PRINTING IS GREAT, AND QUICK FOR A BUBBLE JET. THE COLOR IS VERY GOOD.
