Very fine printing. (B.E. Reviews).

If you expect crisp, bright images from your color printer, look no further than the Canon S500 Color Bubble Jet Printer with the company's Microfine Droplet technology. The $149 printer spits out eight pages per minute (ppm) in color, and 12ppm in black and white, and is compatible with Windows and most Macintosh PCs (OS 8.5 to 9.x).

Typical of Canon printers, setup was easy and painless on the software and hardware side. The S500 is perfect for both the home and office, giving users quality color documents and images at a low price. Additionally, the printer delivers vivid colors at Standard and Quality settings. Canon has separated the ink into four separate tanks, which makes it easy to replace individual colors when you run out of one.

The Canon software also features Image Optimizer and Photo Optimizer Pro, which let you further adjust your images for quality output. We found it made a significant difference when compared with images that weren't optimized. ($149;
