Excerpt: Canon’s Pixma MP980 Printer is an upgraded version of MP 970. The MP 970 had the distinction of printing great-looking photos while being far less expensive than any of its competition. The MP980 shares some of the same features and carries on in that tradition. It can print, scan, copy, and e-mail—by opening a message on your PC and adding a scanned document as an attachment.
Summary: Considering the Canon Pixma MP980's price, we would have liked a faster machine with fewer oddities. However, it's solidly built and reasonably priced to run, and therefore still well worth considering.
Excerpt: One of the driving factors in this type of device is the ability to handle the odd scanning job that you might have. The MP980 can turn out a quick scan of photos or documents, and work as a photocopy machine with multiple copies in black & white or color.
Summary: The Canon Pixma MP980's print quality isn't up to standard and it doesn't perform as quickly as the competition. The HP Photosmart Premium Fax all-in-one is a less expensive alternative that adds value with a fax machine and faster, higher-quality output
Summary: Another quality inkjet AIO (All In One) from Canon . When closed it looks like a grey box with a black trim round the top edge. However lift the small lid at the front and a large TFT is revealed together with the buttons to control it.
Summary: The Canon Pixma MP980 multifunction printer, copier, and scanner is a step up from its predecessor, but the print quality isn't up to standard and it doesn't perform as quickly as the competition.
