Reviews of Canon Inkjet Printers

Canon makes a full line of inkjet printers and all-in-one printers, including the popular Pixma printer. Here are reviews of all the Canon printers I've tested.

Canon Pixma MX532 Wireless Office All-in-One
Canon's Pixma MX532 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer delivers good-looking prints, but slowly and at a higher cost per page, CPP, than competitors.

Canon Pixma iP8720 Wireless Inkjet Photo Printer
Canon Pixma iP8720 Wireless Inkjet Photo Printer, a high-quality tabloid, 11x17 inches, and supertabloid, 13x19 inches, wide format photograph printer.

This Pixma All-in-One Offers Lots of Options
Wireless and networking, a built-in duplexer, easy cloud printing, and a 35-sheet automatic document feeder are some of the features offered by the Canon Pixma MX892 all-in-one printer. The printer is a bit big but has a space-saving shape, and I like the dual-function panel that is handy and sleek, though not a touchscreen.

Wireless and Sleek, the Pixma MG6220 Offers Speed, Quality
For about $200, the Canon Pixma MG6220 is a three-in-one that will do a good job on almost everything--particularly photos. Photos in particular look top notch, and the convenient Touch System Interface makes navigating easy and keeps the machine looking sleek.

Low Price, Small Footprint, and Lots of Bells & Whistles
The Canon Pixma MG5320 is a very reasonably priced all-in-one (minus the fax) inkjet printer. While printing times are not particularly speedy, neither is it frustratingly slow; and somehow, color photos print out quick fast, with very good quality. I found color graphics to be acceptable but certainly not thrilling or crystal clear. But, given...

Canon Pixma MP990 Wireless Photo Printer
The Canon Pixma MP990 is a wireless photo / all-in-one printer (with no fax) that features a 3.8-inch LCD and built-in auto duplex printing. It retails for about $200.

Canon Pixma MP560 All-in-One Printer
Canon sets the bar pretty high for its printers, and in a few ways this one--the Pixma MP560--fell short. For a low-end printer it includes wireless, which is a real benefit; but I didn't get great results printing text. Ink bled into the paper, making prints less than crisp. Photos on the other hand looked just fine. But if your printing needs are more towards sharp, clear documents, you're not going to be pleased with the MP 560.

Canon Pixma MP610 All-in-One Printer / Scanner
The Canon Pixma MP610 all-in-one printer does a fine job at photo scanning and printing, though its graphics-editing functions leave something to be desired.

Canon Pixma MP530 Printer
The Canon Pixma MP530 is a multifunction printer that is a dependable workhorse for home offices.

Canon Pixma MP480 All-in-One Printer
The Canon Pixma MP480 All-in-One Printer is inexpensive, small, and good looking, but it's missing some of the options that would make it a must-buy.

Canon Pixma MX7600 All-in-One Printer
The Canon Pixma MX7600 all-in-one printer includes a new clear-ink technology that helps create better color and monochrome prints. It's a large printer but it does its job well.

Canon Pixma iX7000 Color Printer
It's not just large (and it is); the Canon Pixma iX7000 is a large-format printer, meaning it can easily handle paper up to 13 x 19 inches. With its jutting cassette, it will require a table of its own. I wish it included wireless connectivity, given that its size may force you to keep it in a corner; but in terms of quality, photo output is excellent, while colored graphics look better if you use good paper.

Canon Pixma MX882 All-in-One Printer
For under a hundred bucks, the Canon Pixma MP490 all in one printer is a decent buy. Like many other printers in this price range, it lacks some advanced features such as an automatic document feeder, an automatic duplexer, and wireless support. Of course you'll pay more for those features--so before you buy, decide just how important those...
