Canon PIXMA iP90 Driver Download– The Canon Pixma iP90 is a slim, light, and portable inkjet printer that can be carried anywhere that creates full-size documents and color graphics, as well as 4×6-inch color photos.
You can also add Bluetooth functionality, a battery, or a power adapter to your car. However, even one add-on brings the iP90 to the $350 price tag of the mobile HP DeskJet 450wbt, which already has Bluetooth capabilities. It offers a PictBridge port to print snapshots straight from your digital camera.
The iP90 has a simple semicircular control panel with buttons to power on and resume printing, plus LEDs that glow green and flash in green and orange to communicate everything from everyday printing to significant malfunctions.
We love the Canon Pixma iP90’s small size, especially how it folds up neatly for travel. PictBridge and its relatively unusual built-in infrared (IrDA) port are helpful for those who travel very light and want to print from compatible PDAs, cell phones, and cameras.
The Canon Pixma iP90 introduces two features: Save Black Ink, similar to Draft mode on other printers, which reduces the printer’s use of color, and Use Composites, which you can find in the Driver maintenance section under Ink Usage Control. Save Black Ink reduces the printer’s use of that color, and Use Composite instructs the device to turn color ink black as the noir dries.
We can’t tell you how much ink we saved using Black Ink Save mode–though Canon estimates you’ll get 66 percent more yield–but we can report that text quality was pale in our tests, appearing grayish. Warship ashes than black. We also emptied the black ink tank and made Use Composite mode spin. Results? The hue of the text gave new meaning to the term “purple prose.” However, you might prefer these purple fonts over illegible or no print in a pinch.
You might enjoy this new tweak if you print a lot with the iP90, which will likely run out of ink instantly. The cartridges are so small that they are sold in twin packs; two black tanks cost $11.95, and two-color tanks cost $22.95. Canon estimates that a black cartridge will be suitable for 185 pages of text, about 3 cents per page. The color tank will last only approximately 100 pages or 11 cents per page. This cost is high, but because the iP90 can be used where few other printers can, most high-flying travelers will probably be willing to pay the price, especially if they remember to put more ink refills in their carry-on bag.
The Canon Pixma iP90 has a well-laid out and clearly illustrated setup poster. Once you’ve plugged in the power and USB cable, it takes less than three minutes and less than 300MB of hard drive space to install the CD-ROM onto your computer. The iP90 comes with an on-screen manual, setup utility, printer driver, and a streamlined suite that includes Easy-WebPrint, Photo Record, and Easy-PhotoPrint.
Missing from previous versions of the suite are ZoomBrowserEX and PhotoStitch. Will anyone miss them? Maybe not ZoomBrowserEX, but PhotoStitch is fun for making panoramic shots and montages. The iP90 printer driver is compatible with Mac OS X 10.2.1 to 10.3x and Windows 98 to XP, but Easy-PhotoPrint is the only software compatible with Mac.
Like the previous i80, the Canon Pixma iP90 has a few optional features to tempt you to increase its mobility and raise its price. The Portable Kit, basically a lithium-ion battery, costs $100 and mounts on the back of the printer. Or, for $140, you can get the same battery as a desktop charging stand. If you want to charge your new battery from the cigarette lighter in your rental car, you can install a Car Power Unit for $90.
If you like remote wireless printing, Canon sells a Bluetooth adapter for $80. But without buying anything extra, you can send print jobs wirelessly to your iP90 from your IrDA 1.1 (Infrared Data Association)-enabled portable phone, PDA, or laptop from eight inches or closer.
On the CNET Labs inkjet racetrack, the Canon iP90 outperformed the portable HP Deskjet 450wbt at 1.5 pages per minute (ppm). An 8×10-inch photo on photo paper took just over a minute, almost three times faster than its predecessor’s 2.81 minutes and nearly four times faster than the HP Deskjet 450wbt’s 4.07 minutes to print a single photo.
Like the HP 450wbt, the Canon Pixma iP90’s text on inkjet paper is only fair: legible but blurry around the edges. iP90 prints color graphics better; it reproduces our text document with pale tones but good detail, subtle gradients, and fair color matching. This printer does an equally good job of our test photos, producing near-accurate flesh colors and retaining detail. But we also noticed some worse-than-average discoloration on what should have been a neutral gray, and the overall low-contrast rendering resulted in faded, desaturated colors.
The Canon iP90 comes with a typical one-year limited warranty and toll-free technical support, which you can extend for another two years for a reasonable price of $95. But if you’re asking for post-warranty help, beware of the $10 fee per call. Support hours are Monday to Friday from 8 am to 12 am, and Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm. ET, except on holidays.
A very friendly and optimistic voicemail recording received our test call, which led us to a live person who answered our questions quickly and correctly within two minutes.
