Summary: 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.

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
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.
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.
Pros: Five-ink system good for photos and docs, Fast printing, Very sharp prints, Dual paper input, CD/DVD printing tray
Cons: Not cheap to run, Optional Bluetooth adapter is pricey, A little bulky, Almost too quick with mono docs, Auto duplex is a bit slow
Summary: Canon ersetzt mit dem Canon Pixma MP640 das Multifunktionsgerät MP630. Hervorstechend beim aktuellen All-in-One-Gerät sind der Ethernet-Port und die -Funktionalität. Damit baut der Hersteller die bereits gute Ausstattung seiner Multifunktionsgeräte-Serie weiter aus. Zudem gibt's eine Duplex-Einheit für das automatische Bedrucken von Vorder- und Rückseite eines Blattes sowie eine CD-Druck-Funktion.
