Canon All in One Printers – Convenience for Home and Office
Canon All in One printers provide convenient multifunction solutions
for both office and home environments. Canon’s all-in-one models can be
divided into two main categories: Photo Inkjets and Office Inkjets. The
use of inkjets makes Canon stand out from some of their competitors,
many of which have designed their multifunction printers primarily as
laserjets. This means that on the whole, while Canon’s multifunction
printers may be more expensive to run in terms of ink, they generally
produce better quality images than a multifunction using laserjet
There is one large drawback of Canon multifunction in comparison to
some competitors, such as Brother: many Canon all in one printers have
to copy and scan, but they don’t include faxing. This is something to
keep in mind as you price shop, because if you buy a Canon model you
may end up buying a fax machine separately.
Canon Photo Inkjet All-in-One Printers
One positive thing that can be said for Canon’s photo inkjet all-in-one
printers is the fact that they make it very affordable to copy, scan
and produce high quality color prints from a single machine. Consider
the Pixma MP250, for example, one of Canon’s more basic multifunction
units. This machine retails for around $69.99 and gives you the ability
to copy scan, and print both documents and photos in high quality color.
At the other end of the price spectrum you’ll find models such as the
Pixma MP990, which retails for around $300. This is one of Canon’s
premium machines, boasting complete wireless printing capabilities
amongst its many features. It includes a high resolution scanner and
unique ink tank design which leads to top quality printing.
Canon Office Inkjet All-in-One Printers
Whereas the photo multifunction printers from Canon are designed more
with home use or specific business purposes in mind, the office models
are built for the more typical business scenarios – whether that
happens to be a home office or workgroup in a small company.
Again, Canon has a price range that makes it easy to snap up a basic
model at very low cost, as well as having more advanced machines for
those with the budget and the need for extra features. The Pixma MX320
retails for only $59.99 and is designed particularly with home business
operators in mind. But the range of capabilities it opens up for such a
low price is astounding. With built-in fax capabilities this is one of
the most cost-effective machines for a start-up business in need of
printed communications technology.
With such a feature-packed model at the bottom of the price scale, it’s
hard to get your head around what Canon has packed into the $400 Pixma
MX7600. This machine features innovative print head design and a 5-ink
system that allows for the production of sharp images in intensely
bright color. This machine can pretty much do it all – although it’s an
office printer, it can also produce top notch photo prints. Of course,
it also includes networking capabilities and two-sided printing.
