Canon Pixma iP5300 reviewsThis premium photo printer provides both exceptional print speeds and spectacular photo lab quality. Print a photo lab quality 4”x6” borderless photo in approximately 21 seconds in Standard mode. Enjoy rapid borderless photo printing on a range of sizes. Other extensive features include advanced media handling, PC-free PictBridge camera direct printing and DVD/CD printing.

CNET reviewed Canon Pixma iP5300 and wrote:
"The PIXMA iP5300 is certainly a big step up from the iP5200. With the introduction of new printing technology and features, it would certainly live up to its status as Canon's new flagship photo printer. This Pixma is aimed at professionals and top-end enthusiasts -- people who will definitely appreciate the faster output and professional-grade paper-handling options."

Pocket Lint reviewed Canon Pixma iP5300 and wrote:
"Apart from the slightly frustrating niggles with the set up process, it is fair to say this printer produces professional quality A4 prints at a very reasonable price, output is fast and, thanks to the ChromaLife100 inks, prints will last up to 100-years as well. Superb."

PC Plus reviewed Canon Pixma iP5300 and wrote:
"The iP5300 has a paper input tray that slots in under the printer for up to 150 sheets of standard paper, plus an upright input tray that hinges out to accommodate a further 150 sheets of specialist media or photo paper. A built-in duplex printing is standard, and an especially good CD-printing tray. One thing that’s lacking is a media card reader for direct photo printing, you have to rely on the PictBridge input for this."

GadgetSpeak reviewed Canon Pixma iP5300 and wrote:
"As an image printer this was fast, while for me speed is not that important as long as manufacturers quote them I must give my actual timings. I have over the years seen times drop while as ink droplet size reduce and the output quality increases. I can remember one multi function unit not that long ago took over 24 minutes to print an A4 image. So the 100 seconds for perfectly acceptable images here is the other end of the spectrum. While anything less than say 300 seconds would to me be acceptable providing the image is clear, crisp and has depth."

"Ink costs are frugal, working out to about 1.8p for mono text pages, 5p for colour documents and 7.4p for 10x15cm photos. Compared with most Epson and HP printers, as well as Canon's own six-ink photo printers, ink cost are half the price. For speed and sheer versatility, the iP5300 is simply unbeatable."
