Canon Pixma ip2500 A4 Photo Printer (Mini Review Updated)

Canon ip2500 Epson D92

Looking for a new photo quality printer? I was, and decided the Canon Pixma ip2500 seemed like a good choice, from £32 (£45 in PC World). Print quality and features appear to be very good for the price, offering "Photo lab quality". Black is very black. Colours seem overly saturated on default settings. Installation on Windows XP is very easy - on Vista I had much less luck, ie it didn't work. If you want cheaper running costs then the Epson D92 may be a better choice due to cheaper replacement cartridges (£6 for the Epsons, vs £12 for the Canon).

+ Price - around £30 online, amazon, ebuyer
+ 30 Matte photo sheets included free
+ Very quick printing (22ppm black, 16ppm colour)
+ Borderless photo quality printing
+ 100 sheet doc feeder
+ Fairly quiet (night quiet mode also available)
+ Colour and image quality good on basic paper

- No USB cable included (annoyingly the standard for printers)
- Doesn't want to install with Vista (XP fine)
- Colours appear overly saturated on default settings
- Cartridges not as cheap as previous models (PG-40 £11 vs £2 for ip1500) although still cheaper than Lexmark and HP, but not as cheap as Epson.
- No paper out tray (you must use your desk or floor)
- Poor document feeder, often doesn't feed, and often slightly wonky (weak width adjuster)

Indigo Drink - Energy that's a little bit fruity.

Apparently it's an energising Peach and Lemon fruit juice drink with Guarana, Ginseng and Caffiene, however, it seems to just taste purple and sugary to me. Maybe there's a hint, a slight tiny hint of Peach in there? Contains Water, Glucose Fructose Syrup, Fruit juices (10%), Sugar, Taurine, Flavourings (Guarana, Ginseng, Peach, Caffiene), Salt!. And 25mg or caffiene / 100mls! Although this is around the same as instant coffee , so presumably nothing to worry about.
