The Canon Pixma iX6820 is on the top of our list of best printer for cardstock papers, and for good reasons. It provides excellent print resolution, great wireless network connectivity options, is compatible with most older operating systems, and has an easy setup procedure.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Canon Pixma iX6820\r\nIf you need the best overall printer for around $300, look no further than the Canon Pixma iX6820 inkjet printer. It offers so much for such a low price that it\u2019s quite unbelievable. It might not be very fast in terms of PPM, so to say, but it prints out some of the highest resolution printouts you\u2019ll ever get to see at this price.\r\n\r\nSpeed\r\nSpeed is probably the only section where this printer doesn\u2019t get to flex its muscles that much. Printing a black (\u201cHIGH QUALITY\u201d mode) 11x17 all graphics image, where the printer only has to use black ink, can take up to 3 minutes. Text at standard quality will be significantly faster. 11x17 and 13x19 using all black on the highest settings should also take 3 minutes or so. Obviously, the time would increase when it has to use color ink. If you really need high print speed, get the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 instead.\r\nPrint Quality\r\nThe Canon Pixma iX6820 wireless inkjet printer can print out up to 9600x2400 DPI content. You won\u2019t be able to find this high DPI on any other wireless printer at this price. And even when you double the price, you\u2019ll have a tough time finding a printer that has similar DPI support. The point is, if you crave the quality of a high-end inkjet printer, there\u2019s no better option than the Canon Pixma iX6820 for budget shoppers.\r\nEfficiency\r\nInkjet printers usually consume way less energy than laser printers. The Canon Pixma iX6820 is no different. And, unlike the Epson Expression Photo HD XP-15000, it is also very efficient in terms of both color and black ink usage. It sips a very low amount of color ink for each printout.\r\nAdvanced Features\r\nOne of the best parts of this Wi Fi printer is, it has AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Pixma Printing Solutions (PPS) wireless printing support. And it also supports most older Windows and macOS versions. So no matter which device you\u2019re on, you should be able to use it just fine.\r\nValue\r\nThe Canon Pixma iX6820 inkjet printer is just quite an incredible value for money printer. There simply is nothing like it in the market at its price that comes close in terms of print resolution, wireless networking and wireless printing support, and just overall compatibility with different devices. Still, if you don\u2019t have $300 to shell out for it and urgently need a somewhat usable inkjet printer, go for the HP OfficeJet 3830.\r\nCanon Pixma iX6820 Wrap Up\r\nHopefully, reading through our above points, you can understand why we rated the Canon Pixma iX6820 so high. It beats all of its competitors in most aspects. So it would be a perfect fit for you if you care about print quality.
