Efficient home printing: PIXMA iP2840
For the home user, Canon is introducing an efficient, compact, single-function printer, the PIXMA iP2840, which replaces the current iP2700, and has been designed specifically for everyday use. It features a sleek and compact design, making it ideal for the space-conscious home user or student looking for a device that will sit neatly on a small desk space. The iP2840 produces quality documents with sharp text as well as high-quality, natural looking photos, thanks to Canon’s FINE cartridge technology, which combines pigment black ink with dye-based inks.

The iP2840 helps home users save energy via an Auto Power Off function, which automatically switches the printer off when it isn’t in use for a set period of time. Auto Power On then conveniently and automatically turns the printer back on whenusers start printing, while the option of quiet mode helps to significantlyreduce operating noise for near silent printing at home.

The iX6840also has an optional XXL pigment black ink tank, which will print up to 1,000 pages of A4 documents without needing to replace the ink . Both the XL and XXL cartridges offer between 30 and 50 per cent cost savings per page compared to their standard equivalents.
