The sale of Pixma iP1880 printer sales does not necessarily make this series as a best option for those with pockets barely. Because Canon also offers iP3500 series that we consider much more interesting. The link price is not far away with iP1880.
But if iP1880 only provides 1 paper container, iP3500 has 2 paper inputs; of the upper tray and the bottom tray totals a total of 250 sheets of A4 paper. The design of the Pixma iP3500 is similar to the iP1880 that carries a more luxurious glossy black finish.
Like the average low-end inkjet printer, the Canon Pixma iP3500 control panel is minimal, there are only power buttons and 2 LED indicator lights. Uniquely, iP3500 includes a Jamming button! On the side to remove jammed paper when printing. This button is a very useful addition to the common problem that occurs when printing on various types of paper. To make it easy to print photos directly from the camera, iP3500 includes a PictBridge USB port on the front.
Although the entry level printer iP3500 speed in printing is very good. A sheet of A4 documents can be printed within 8 seconds, similar to laser printer speed. The print quality is also sharply tarnished.
For A4 photo printing is also quite fast: 3 minutes 20 seconds, more speed than the HP Photosmart D5360 we also had time to try. But for the quality of the image seems iP3500 must give up from HP Photosmart D5360 appear more smooth.
As cheap printers iP3500 may be proud though FINE technology (Full-Photolithograhpy Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) we consider less smooth to print photos on plain paper media. But there are positive things, namely Chromalife100 technology in ink that keeps the photo prints from damage to 100 years.
As a printer, IP3500 is more suitable for printing photos on glossy paper with good sharpness. The weakness of the printer comes from the lack of subtle color gradations, mainly on the color prints on plain paper.
