Conclusion: The MP640 is by no means perfect, but that's forgiveable considering just how high it's aiming. Like most Pixmas, however, it does all the important things well, and does nothing badly, which is a good start. If you can justify spending this much on a home all-in-one, you certainly won't be disappointed.
Pros: As a photo printer, the MP640 is every bit as good as a standalone machine, producing bright, vibrant and true results every time. In fact, it's an impressive performer all round, and Canon hasn't forgotten that even the longest feature list in the world is no substitute for quality. Usefully, you can set up plain and photo paper simultaneously, while duplex printing is as speedy as we've seen, with an impressively short delay while the printer switches sides. Wi-Fi i...
Cons: The MP640 is probably a bit of overkill for the average home user, and the downside of its flexibility is that some features may end up never being used. And while the MP600 series has generally aged well, the interface is starting to look dated, and we won't be surprised to see an overhauled touchscreen interface finding its way into Canon's next wave of releases.
Conclusion: The MP640 is a sharply designed printer that could be a great fit in many different environments. It is a 3-in-1 device that can scan-to a USB flash drive or automatically print a double sided at a touch of a button.
Pros: Excellent image quality, Ease of use, Low energy consumption
Cons: Print pauses during jobs, No document print from USB
Summary: Currently occupying a portion of my available workspace is the Canon PIXMA MP640 . This is an All-in-One device that offers print, scan and copy capabilities while giving you a choice of USB or 802.11bg WLAN connectivity when connecting to your computer system which can be either a Windows or Mac machine. Also included with this product is a duplex feature for those jobs that require printing on both sides of the paper.
Canon's hero multifunction gains Ethernet, Wi-Fi and a bigger LCD

Summary: Canon's PIXMA MP640 inkjet multifunction offers network connectivity, a sizeable colour LCD and USB flash drive support. It's not a fast printer, but you can expect the same excellent print quality you get from other Canon inkjets.
Pros: Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, easy to use, great print quality, can print photos directly from USB flash drives
Cons: Can't print documents from flash drives, some print quality issues with small text, compatibility issues with Mac OS X Snow Leopard
Excerpt: It's a fair few years now since Canon launched its ground-breaking five-ink printing system, featuring dye-based cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks, as well as a secondary pigment-based black ink in the line-up.
Conclusion: Po okresie eksperymentów z liczbą i strukturą dysz twórca systemu druku pięciokolorowego spoczął na laurach. Ostatnia innowacja polegała na wprowadzeniu trzeciego rozmiaru kropli w części głowicy dla tuszy rozpuszczalnikowych kosztem zmniejszenia z 512 do 320 liczby dysz przeznaczonych do czerni pigmentowej. Ten rodzaj tuszu jest używany tylko do fragmentów monochromatycznych, gdyż źle się miesza z kolorami i drugim czarnym na osnowie rozpuszczalnikowej.
Pros: dobre tempo druku i skanowania, świetna jakość druku, umiarkowane koszty eksploatacji, bogate wyposażenie
