Canon Pixma MP510: Poor Printer, Gobbles paper, spits out errors
22 February 2010
Summary: As a first reviewer of this model, I suppose the pressure is on! Basically, this all in one printer-copier-scanner was offered to us at a discounted price when we purchased a new computer. We accepted the offer, and like many relationships with technology, it started promisingly. In terms of expectations being met, it initially did exactly what we hoped.
Summary: Aggghh, why is it from day one the colours come out all brown and muddy when printing from photoshop or illustrator? It's fine when printing a photo, but as soon as you use a program like photoshop colours look horrible. I have a a red image, that prints out dark brown almost black. Even when a print pure red, it prints orange. Really disappointed in this printer. Scanner is not that great either.
Pros: It prints, like the touch display at the front.
Cons: Poor colour reproduction from photoshop or illustrator, ink runs out very fast, expensive cartridges, scanner isn't very good (strange pixelating on image).
