    Canon’s $60 Inkjet Offers Plenty for the Price
    You know how cheap inkjets work: You buy the box for a small amount, and then you end up spending enough on replacement ink to overtake the cost of the machine.But if your print volume is fairly low, if you’re looking to supplement a monochrome printer, or if you’re a parent shopping for a back-to-school gift, a cheap inkjet can fill your needs competently.Consider Canon’s new Pixma iP2600. Currently the least-expensive inkjet we’ve tested, it’s bare-bones and somewhat slow. Using plain paper, however, it produces precise, deep-black text and surprisingly good-looking photos. If you shell out the dough for special paper, its images look even better.?? The Pixma iP2600 joins two Canon cousins in our current Top 5.Two other new low-cost models we tested didn’t make the chart. Epson’s Stylus C120 deserves credit for its fast print speeds: 15.1 ppm (pages per minute) printing text, and up to 6.2 ppm printing graphics. But before you print your novel on this machine, note that its output on plain paper is light-colored and a bit fuzzy. You’ll need special paper to achieve the best results.Lexmark’s Z2420 Wireless boasts integrated Wi-Fi and extremely user-friendly help to walk you through the installation. Its middling print quality and speed make it difficult to recommend as your sole printer, but it would be a good, photo-centric second unit.Why buy a plain old printer when you can get a multifunction for the same price? An MFP does impose trade-offs. If you need to make copies or to scan documents to e-mail, you may not mind wrestling with a multifunction printer’s scanner or its button-busy control panel. But to cut costs, an MFP’s core printing technology might be older or less capable than that of a like-priced stand-alone printer. So if printing remains your primary activity, don’t compromise on that core function just to save a little money.
