      Nice printer for domestics

      Personally, I used this model of printer too. You might think this printer is out of date or bulky or old, but I can tell you it's not as useless as you think. This is not a good ones, though, if you are finding a printer for business use, particularly those doing designing or photocopying business because this model confide in other type of excellence.

      This model of printer can print you documents, which is better those of words some minor pictures. For black and white, it can definitely print them nicely and neatly. For colour, you can see they are in good colour too. Besides, if you are using paper for photos or better quality paper, your result of printing will be beyond compare!

      Besides, Cannon BJC-1000SP is not very bulky. It is only slightly bigger than a tin of biscuit. This also means the printer is not very heavy either. You can shift them around your house when, especially you are using laptops or you need to move from one place to another. Another good point for you to use it is that it is easy to use. Even a Dummy can use it professionally! It has no specific or too advanced functions. That's why we can always manage to use it easily and never get stuck up with the functions.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Design of this printer possible to name ultracompact - it practically does not occupy the place on the table. Pallet is situated behind, sheets are insert nearly vertically. For the best sheet support in the vertical position is provided by withdrawable plastic panel. There is a move limiter of width of sheets in the pallet. Front panel sits back downwards, ensuring access to the printing mechanism. Printing sheets driving out of slots, situated in lower part front panels. Receiving pallet is absent, so ready prints get on the surface of the table. Single management body - protuberant oval button of blue colour (continuation of print) - is situated on the center on upper panel. Light indicators are absent. Interface connector is situated vertically on the backboard on the right on the pallet. Network cable is connect with the connector, situated in lower part of the backboard left of the pallet. In the printer simultaneously possible to install only one cartridge - or black (monochrome), or colour (cyan, magenta, yellow). For more quality colour print possible to gain photocartridge (also three colours). Besides, possible gains three-colored florescent colour cartridge. Printing mechanism works very softly, with low noise level. As far as in designs is not provided by power supply breaker, the printer is include right after connections to the wall-plug of electric network. Regrettably, applicable network cable is render very short (90 sm.), that can cause certain inconveniences under its connection. Installing software (driver of version 5.70, deliver on the compact disk) did not cause difficulties. Changing catridge is produce easy and does not require physical efforts. For fixing cartridge in the holder sufficiently to snap plastic hook. Just on the holder is situated on-off-type mechanical switch of thickness of printed materials. Depending on chosen in the driver of type of papers on schematic expressing a printer is
        indicating location of this switch and necessary its position. Driver of printer has a simple interface. Possible installation five quality gradations and three types of the raster, forced print in the monochrome mode, choice of different types of papers. Provided a possibility of scaling a print expressing, as well as printing the u-turns and posters. Possibility of exact correcting a colour is provided for colour prints. Tuning possible to save for further use. From the folder of servicing a printer are actuated processes a peelings of print heads and giving paper of platens, printout test pages. Type cartridge is defined automatically (with the exclusion of florescent, which is defined as usual colour). When printing a text BJC-1000 has show highly nonbad quality under the high velocity of print, however modest achievements in the field of printing the colour expressing - that is stipulate by insufficient density and saturation three-colorful print. Necessary to note that using photocartridge vastly perfects a quality of expressing - raster structure becomes less observable, picture - more saturated. If you need a home printer mainly for printing a text and uncomplicated graphs, Canon BJC-1000 can become a nonbad choice. Considering its small size, its painlessly possible will "put" practically in any interior.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Get ready to purchase a multitude of ink cartridges if you buy this Canon printer. I have the Canon BJC-1010 Model of the Canon BJC-1000 series of printers and it absolutely eats up the ink cartridges as if they were gasoline for a 1970's car. The printer itself produce quality print outs for a family budget computer as it will only cost the consumer about $100 dollars. I actually received me in a package deal when I purchased my computer but I saw the model on the sales floor quoted at a price of $109 dollars. This printer uses two different types of cartridges, the BC-02 (black only) and the BC-05 (color). I use my printer occasionally, maybe a couple of times a week but the BC-05 cartridge that came with the printer was empty after about five weeks. One thing I learned afterwards is that if you leave your printer plugged in, each time you turn on your computer the cartridge tests itself resulting in the waste of unnecessary ink. I would recommend only plugging in the printer when it is going to be used otherwise you will waste the cartridge unnecessarily. The most recent cartridge, the BC-02, I had lasted three months before it ran out. Currently, I have another BC-02 cartridge in there which has lasted over two months so far. The basic word of advice here is to be cautious as these cartridges run upwards of $20. There are different modes that can be printed and if use the highest quality mode, you will get a very nice printing. Once again, be aware that this results in extraordinary use of the ink cartridges so be cautious in your use of the higher quality settings with this Canon printer BJC-1010. The Canon BJC-1010 is a good printer for the family to use occasionally but be careful not to overuse it because the ink costs will run you dry as well!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          the cannon inkjet printer or bubble jet as they like to call them is the basic printer which is included in the bundle when you buy a new PC which is infact where we got ours. So if the likes of packard bell think enough of it to give it to their valued customers well.... This printer copes well enough with black and white text and black and white cartridge came with it colour wise things seem a bit jaded and washed out to me after the colour cartridge has been used for the first time. The annoying thing is that the manual suggests for best results you must use the specific cartrage and you guessed it there is one for photos one for general pics etc. On the plus side is its very quiet.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I bought a Canon BJC-1000 printer when on a tight budget and was pleasantly surprised by its performance. The Canon BJC-1000 is a very good budget printer, offering a print quality which will be more than good enough for the average home user. It is easy to setup under Windows 98, simply a case of running the CD and I have never had a problem with paper jams or such like. One of its major weaknesses is however, its speed. Printing a large document or graphics can take for ever and if you use the high print quality setting it absolutely drinks ink. Therefore if you intend to use you printer alot then you would be well advised to steer clear from this offering but for light use it is a very good option. Another problem is that the Canon BJC-1000 is one of those printers which requires you to switch the ink cartridges around if you intend to print in colour or in black and white, there is no space provided for both cartridges at once. True, this is not too much of a problem and if you are not too worried about ink expenditure then the colour cartridge prints in black as well by mixing the colours. Overall though it is a very solidly designed printer which I have had for a while now without coming across any problems whatsoever and as long as you fall within the bracket of a home user who uses their printer very lightly then this is the perfect option to go for. If you intend using your printer often then this could work out to be an expensive option due to the amount of ink that it uses.

            Disadvantages

            I recently purchased a canon bjc 1000 printer,and have mixed feelings on it. Its brillant for text printing and black and white images. where it lets itself down badly is in its reproduction of colour images.Especially photographs,where the colour lacks definition,and the colours are just not bright enough. Having said all of that it is very easy to install,isnt to noisy and is able to cope with even the cheapest of paper if printed in black and white. At a cost of around £45 it is good value for money,although i would consider investing in a better one in the near future,simply because as i have said it isnt really able to cope with photographic images.

              Disadvantages

              This printer cost me about £58, I bough it because I didn’t have much money and I just wanted something that I could use to print of letters without using up too much ink. It does the job brilliantly and is excellent quality for the price. The only downsides are that you have to swap over the black and colour cartridges accordingly, and it is a bit slow at printing. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a bargain to print small tasks its excellent. The inks are expensive if you use the originals at £15 on average for the black and £25 for the tri colour but you can now buy compatibles for a lot less, you’ve just got to look around.

                I had this printer as part of my pc package.To say it is complete rubbish is an understatement.It is very slow printing,even in plain black it can take an age to print off a page.It also takes an age to download the information so it can start printing.The colour cartridges dont last more than a couple of weeks of steady use(maybe 20 photos),the black ones are slightly better.They are also very expensive,even in the computer fairs they want £20 for a colour cartridge.As i said in the title,DONT BOTHER WITH THIS,you will regret buying it.

                  Disadvantages

                  I've been using this printer for about 3 months. My old BJC4100 gave up the ghost so I've borrowed this from a friend who got it included with his new pc. I can see why it was included free as it really isn't worth paying for. Text is ok but it uses a single 3-colour tank so when printing black it comes out a grey-brown colour. Graphics aren't too bad for spot colours but anything like a photo is very grainy and the coulours don't look very true. Also the ink capacity is tiny, especially as all of the colours are used when trying to print black. Even in the short term you would be better of buying a more expensive printer that uses a black tank and a tri-colour tank.

                    We bought this printer as a managers special from Dixons. I has wanted to get another Epson but as it was for the kids computer and was only needed for minimal printing we got it. It has not failed to please giving great results for a cheap purchase price. I do not know if we would have still bought it at full price though as there are many better offers. If you need a good quality low expense printer and can get this on at a good price then go for it.

                    The cannon BJC100 to me is not that impressive in fact there isn`t much to it. It`s a handy small size that can be put in small spaces, but that is probably it. You can now buy one for around £55-£60, cheap yes!, so what has it got that makes it different to others, nothing. The cartridges are a ridiculous price, buying one in places like pc world will set you back £25.00 for a colour one. Searching the internet and finding a printer supplier that will give you a good deal as well as free delivery is a must. I saved £10.00 by doing this. As the printer costs around £60. and you get a cartridge with it, the actual price you are paying for the printer is £35.00. A friend got a free printer with her computer she sold thier cannon BJC100 printer for £38 at a money creator place, she kept the cartridge went to a sale bought a brand new cannon BJC1000 for £50.00 which included a new cartridge, so if you work it out she paid £12.00 for a brand new printer with 2 cartridges.

                    Disadvantages

                    Now, I wanted a fairly cheap, good value for money printer with good ink consumtion and efficient work pace. After much mulling and pulling out of hair, I decided to spend my hard earned cash on the Canon BJC - 1000. It was the best choice I've ever made and to me, a £60 very well spent. I would seriously recommend this to anyone considering a new or seperate colour printer, Resolution is average and print speed is average for an inkjet but it is an alltogether good work horse. On the subject of ink replacement, it costs a mere £5 for the black cartridge and £15 for the tri-colour one - the drawback is that you have to sswop the cartridges over depending on what you intend to print - this is one of the points that make it a budget printer yet an altogether good buy!

                    I recently bought the Canon BJC 1000 after I was attracted by its cheap price. I only needed a printer for my university course and the cheaper the better as far as I was concerned. At just fifty pounds I am extremely happy with my purchase, the print quality is excellent both in black and white and colour. The printing speed is a little slow, four or five pages a minute in black and white around two in colour but hey who is in a rush. If your strapped for cash and need a printer then go for this one you will not be disappointed.

                    My little Canon BJC-1000 replaced a well-worked old black and white canon BJC-10. I bought the new printer for around £75 about a year ago, and in terms of what you get for your money this little gem comes out on top. I have had good success printing images in documents, but as I doubt I will be doing proper imaging stuff, and will have no need for many "extra" features, or higher resolutions offered by more expensive big brothers. OK, it isn't the fastest or quietest printer out there, but for the price bracket it is superb. As for reliability, it hasn't missed a beat. I recently had a friend who was looking for a printer scanner combo, and we looked around and for £110 plus VAT we got him a BJC-1000 and a Canon FB620 - they work well together, but both being on the same parallel port, means you cannot scan and print at the same time, but this is the only hint of any hassle.

                    When I bought my Canon BJC-1000 printer about 1 year ago the price I payed for it was £85. This price has now staggered to around £50. The printer itself is very reliable and I have had no problems with it since I bought it. The BJC-1000 can accept three types of cartridges, black, colour and photo. The quality of printed material is very good. Even without the photo cartridge the quality is still outstanding. The printer seems to use up ink very quickly but after all it is an Ink Jet printer.
