The Best Portable Printer Ever Made
Rugged, ultra-dependable, lowest cost of ownership, and versatile! It can print with high capacity black-only, or full color, or morph into a sheet-fed scanner with a quick cartridge swap. Ink tanks are super easy to refill, just turn them over and drip ink onto the sponge. I travel worldwide, and the inks are available everywhere. I bought this one to replace my 12-year-old still-working BJC-80...

Rugged, ultra-dependable, lowest cost of ownership, and versatile! It can print with high capacity black-only, or full color, or morph into a sheet-fed scanner with a quick cartridge swap. Ink tanks are super easy to refill, just turn them over and drip ink onto the sponge.
I travel worldwide, and the inks are available everywhere.
I bought this one to replace my 12-year-old still-working BJC-80 to get the BJC-85's USB capability.
Canon's BJCs are still the best, bar none.
This decade-old Canon BJC-85 printer still beats its newer brothers, and don't even think about HP junk.

I bought a refurbished Canon...
Strengths: My printer worked every time with out a problem. One of the Best-Highly Recommended
Weakness: Ink cartage runs out quickly wish the black ink cartage could be filed.
I bought a refurbished Canon BJC-85 about 3 years ago and have been pleased with it I have used it for business and printed 30 t0 50 pages a day for months with out any problems. I would recommend it to any one and have.

I used to own a similar product...
Strengths: Light weight.
Weakness: needed service frequently, poor printing quality, head constantly in need of cleaning
I used to own a similar product made by Hewlett Packard but had to get a new printer due to computer upgrade. I decided to try the Canon BJC-85. I wish I had stuck with HP as I now have an expensive paper weight. After two weeks I had to replace the print head. I had printed no more than 20 pages at this point.

I used to own a similar product made by Hewlett Packard but had to get a new printer due to computer upgrade. I decided to try the Canon BJC-85. I wish I had stuck with HP as I now have an expensive paper weight.
After two weeks I had to replace the print head. I had printed no more than 20 pages at this point. The printer continually malfunctioned and I found it to be extremely tempermental finding it necessary to take it to the Canon outlet no less than three times in its short life. The last time I was told to “throw it away” by the Canon technician. My printer was one year and six months old. I estimate that I printed 100 pages on this machine. Great value.
So if you want a troublesome piece of equipment that is clearly built for obsolescence by all means buy this product.
