Reviews of Canon All-in-One Printers

Whether it's a photo printer you're after or an all-in-one, Canon has the printer (and scanner) for your needs. Their Selphy photo printers are among the best photo printers I've tried, and their all-in-ones can compete with Epson and HP. Trouble is finding the one for you out of the many choices. That's why you should start here and read the reviews, and find the one you need.

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 MX882 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 MP530 Printer
The Canon Pixma MP530 is a multifunction printer that is a dependable workhorse for home offices.

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 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 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 MX3300 All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer
An outstanding, low-end all-in-one printer from Canon--what else needs to be said? For about $100, you get all the features you could want, plus the quality and dependability of Canon.

Canon Pixma MX860 All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer
You'll pay twice as much for this Canon Pixma all-in-one as for the Pixma MX330 I recently reviewed. What do you get for the extra dough? A lot. Wireless / wired network printing. A built-in duplexer. Up to 9600 x 2400 dpi color printing. Truly outstanding colors. Is it worth it? While the cost of replacing five tanks can be huge, the quality is so good that I'd pay the extra money, since I tend to print a lot.

Canon Pixma MP490 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 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 MP990 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer
The Canon Pixma MP990 offers a lot of great features such as auto duplexing in a rather large three-in-one printer (there's no fax). On the plus side it's very fast and photos in particular look fantastic. On the minus side, there's no ADF and the ink tends to saturate paper, leaving prints soggy.
