Conclusion: It’s a true all-in-one printer, copier and scanner and the only thing it’s really lacking is fax but I suppose faxing is not as important now as it once was. If you are looking for one machine that can do everything then the PIXMA MP560 is certainly worth considering and at just a shade over £100 I think you’d be hard pushed to find better.
Summary: 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 all-around printing text. Being able to print in high quality on cheap paper is important, I think, since it's a whole lot cheaper to buy a ream of copy paper than inkjet paper. But the ink bled into the paper, making prints less than crisp.
Pros: Fast, Easy to set up and built-in wireless networking, Built-in duplexing, Good photo quality
Cons: Ink bleeds into cheap paper, Five ink cartridges means more consumables to buy, Less-than-sharp printing
Summary: The Canon Pixma MP560 multifunction printer and its flashy 2-inch LCD screen and auto-document feeder may seem appealing at first, but the average consumer will find that Lexmark's Impact S305 offers faster performance and higher quality results for $50 less.
Pros: Intuitive scroll wheel; large 2-inch LCD for photo viewing; wireless; auto-duplexer included; dual paper trays.
Conclusion: The MP560 Wireless Photo All-in-One printer definitely lives up to its predecessor, the MP620. The photo quality is excellent, Canon has improved the wireless setup, and it is full of great features including Canon’s Easy Scroll Wheel, a front side PictBridge/USB port, and two way paper feeding.

Summary: The mid-range Canon PIXMA MP560 inkjet multifunction printer isn't feature-packed but it can print high quality documents and photos, and the integrated Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect and control wirelessly.
Pros: Great quality documents and photos, easy to use
Summary: As part of its range of new printing devices, Canon has released the PIXMA MP560 . This is an All-in-One model featuring print, scan and copy functions. This PIXMA unit has Wi-Fi and USB connectivity and is being aimed at the small office / home user.
Summary: This is perhaps the complete All In One as not only does it scan, copy and print but it can be used via USB or Wi-FI, so should the ‘lounge police’ object it can be stored away from the PC and live out of view in a cupboard.
