Canon PIXMA MX870 review.
It's an all-in-one printer that is the best home office workhorse machine.
It's full of cool features that any business person can enjoy.
It has quiet scanning, printing and dual paper trays.
It can also print on both sides so you don't need to manually turn the paper over yourself saving paper and time.
With it's 9600 x 2400 color dpi, I was amazed on the print quality even on the smaller setting.
With it's five ink cartridges it prints studio quality pictures.
The color of the cartridges are cyan, magenta, yellow, pigment-black, and dye-black for photo printing.
The printer cartridges sell at a very good price comparing to other cartridges and it can hold up to 150 sheets of paper for each paper tray.
Wireless setup is pretty easy.
You can set it up one of two ways.
The first way is to connect it using the USB to your computer using the CD that is supplied and the second way, manually inputting the settings from the control panel.
Another way to set up a network for the printer is to connect the Ethernet cable from the printer to the router.
The PIXMA MX870 has a built in fax letting you receive color faxes.
You can connect it straight to your phone line.
The MX870 is not small measuring at 9 x 20 x 17 inches and weighing under 26 pounds.
The design looks very sleek coming in grey and having slanted edges.
This newer look, looks so much better than many other printers that I have seen.
The printing speed is really not bad for this home office printer.
For a 8 x 10 color photo it took around 4 minutes to print and about 2 minutes for 4 x 6's.
After taking pictures with my Panasonic DMC FX50 7-mega-pixel camera, I printed some out and they came out fantastic with rich bright colors.
I used the Canon glossy photo paper to print on.
The black and white photos also looked awesome.
Writing for this Canon PIXMA MX870 review was an actual pleasure.
I love printing from this machine with the great looking Power point and graph presentations, they are just amazing.
I would be happy to recommend this Canon printer to everyone.
