I first decided to buy this printer because it was one of the only, and by far the cheapest, all in one printer with faxing facilities. It is now available on amazon for £89.99 but when I bought it a year ago it was about £130 which was still very good and also as it was from Argos. I got a years warranty with it from Argos and we did have to replace it once because it was broken, we didn't know the cause.
The printer starts up very quickly and is almost immediately ready to start print jobs. Documents can be printed from up to 22ppm in mono or 17ppm in colour. The copying speed is up to 22cpm in mono, 17cpm in colour. The photocopyer is very easy to use and offers good quality copies with the text being very clear, as are the other simple features like scanning-at 600dpi. I use the faxing a lot as it is much quicker and more conveinient than sending a letter in the post.
I find that the printer uses a huge amount of ink compared to my previous printer and it is certain type that is must have is very expensive. There is a shop quite locally that offers an ink cartridge filling service at a discounted price but the quality is not really the same as the ink takes longer to dry and is quite runny in comparison.
This printer claims to be very good for printing photos but I find that the quality is not really very good and if your'e looking for a printer for photos then you'd be better off with a laser printer or trying a different model.
I fit this in my office quite comfortably but it is rather large and if you plan to install this where space is an issue then this is definately an problem that needs considering.
All in all, it is quite a good printer but some things bring it down a lot and I would probably not buy it again myself. The fact it is a low cost at first purchase should not give a huge impact on your decision to buy as the ink is much more expensive than other brands.
Canon PIXMA MX300 , though it does not cost as much as those in the market, the brand name says it all.The best thing i admired about this piece pf product is the quality of the output.When we make a copy of a document or picture by scanning and then taking a print, at times it will be hard to differentiate which copy is original and which one is the copy. The printing quality is so good, but the draw back is that it takes hell a lot of ink for the prints which reduces the number of prints taken drastically.It has features like copier, printer, scanner and fax.As we know the cartridges of these printers cost us a really huge amount, this one cannot be used to take frequent copies just like that.When we need to produce a copy of important documents and documents to be given to clients this little machine can be used.Its good to have one such machine but if you want the real value for money i would say go for a all in one mean machine which comes as a laser printer and not an inkjet printer.
