The Canon Pixma ix7000 A3 colour printer has been drastically cut in price recently which has to plant it squarely in first place above the ix6550 just because as far as getting incredible value for money this beast outperforms all in this review category. It adopts a five ink cartridge configuration with cyan, magenta, yellow, black text and blac photo. It also has a sixth cartridge with a special clear coating that Canon swears increases the vividness and brightness of colours as each sheet of paper is coated with theis clear liquid prior to printing so the ink sits on the coat rather than directly on the paper. This is primarily to address untreated paper but, in reality, just looks like another cartridge to change. DId I say that. The picture quality is very good but whether or not this is because of the of the coating I could not say. Remember, this machine is apparently geared to A4 office use with the ‘occassional’ need for A3 and A3+ colour such as for posters and presentations etc.
The Canon PIXMA ix7000 A3 colour printer has three paper sources, a 20 sheet feeder to the rear, a 250 sheet feeder below which takes the full A3+ paper, and a manual tray capable of feeder 10 sheets. The rear tray normally reserved for photo paper can be folded away to lie ontop of the machine when not in use and all other trays can be pushed into the machine when A4 paper is being used. I’m not sure if this will help your coffee cup though because it cannot become narrower.
The machine is massive though compared to the other machines in this category and gets bigger (deeper) when you load A3 paper, so make sure you check out the dimensions below before trying to fit it on your desk beside where your coffee cup is suppossed to sit. You’ll have to give up the coffee I’m afraid.
