This Multi function printer has caught my eye because a few customers have been asking prices for the cartridges.
This printer has got all the features you would expect you can print, scan, copy and fax and you can also print direct to CD/DVD media.
It is completely you can share and print wirelessly it is compatible with Microsoft and Mac you can also print from and scan to using Apple Air print. It is compatible with both Microsoft and Mac
The scanner is a high resolution of 2400×4800dpi.
It has two front loading paper holders one holds 250 pages the other can hold 20 sheets of the photo paper. It also has double sided printing this helps to reduce costs of paper.
The fax machine can be in colour or black and white there is also an option so you can choose what print quality you would like.
Print quality is very good as you would expect from a canon printer, it is clear even when using fast mode it is lighter but you can still have a clear print. It is a 5 cartridge system so when one cartridge runs out you just have to replace that cartridge.
The ink comes in standard size and XL cartridges but for the heavy user there is an optional XXL Black ink cartridge is available.
A few gripes when looking at this inkjet multi function printer, it is bigger than most printers in Canons range, if space is at a premium this would probably be a problem and also there is no touch screen and no memory card reader although it does have a USB port.
Overall this printer has everything you need in a multifunction printer. It gives a good performance for a printer in its price range £135* It is a little slower than its counterparts but it is good value for the money and as a full range of features appealing to the home user or small businesses.
