Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Absolutely fantastic quality of print within a minute from selecting the photo you wish to print. The printer has various settings regarding borders and quantity of photos selected to print which is a nice touch. The photos are so clear and completely smudge proof. I really recommend this printer to anyone, especially with a canon camera.
Bad points:
Ink cartridge and paper are reasonably priced, but i hope to see this come down in future. Also i hope that availiabilty will not become a problem in future. I am not so fond of the back of the photo being postcard style, but hey, who looks at the back of a picture?
