The Canon S520 color bubble inkjet printer provides flexibility with refined color, precision, and detail for photo printing. The S520 uses four individual ink tanks for cost savings, and with both USB and parallel ports, it's a suitable match to your Mac or PC.
Canon's trademarked MicroFine Droplet technology ably provides crisp clean black text in 600 x 600 dpi and color prints at 2,400 x 1,200 dpi, on a wide variety of media. Rated speeds are up to 14 pages per minute for black and 9 ppm for color. Canon claims you can even get 4-by-6-inch borderless prints in less than a minute. Supported papers include plain, banners, envelopes, and glossy photo cards.
This quiet printer (only 42 dB in best quality mode) will suit most light-duty tasks in small offices and at home. When ink levels are low, simply drop in the single color cartridge you need, reducing waste. Software includes the printer drivers and the BJ Solution Disk CD-ROM. On the latter, titles for Windows include PhotoRecord and ZoomBrowser; for Mac, ImageBrowser; and for both, PhotoStitch. Canon offers a one-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
