When I started testing the Pixma iP4300 Photo Inkjet Printer, the iP4200 still reigned supreme, and I couldn’t help wondering whether this new model would improve much on it.
Well, it does. A lot. The iP4300 is faster, and cheaper, and it even offers a smidge better quality than the iP4200 does. And it retains welcome touches such as two paper trays, the ability to duplex automatically, and a PictBridge connector for direct printing from cameras.

The Kensington Vo300 USB Internet SpeakerPhone ensures it’s really easy to make and take calls over your PC.
