Summary: The Canon Pixma MP990 wireless photo printer offers a lot of great features such as auto duplexing in a rather large three-in-one printer (there's no fax). On the plus side it's very fast and photos in particular look fantastic. On the minus side, there's no ADF and the ink tends to saturate paper, leaving prints soggy. It doesn't come cheap (at least $200) and you'll need to spend extra on heavy-duty paper (and replacing those six ink tanks).
Pros: Fast, Easy to set up and built-in wireless networking, Auto duplexing, Good photo quality
Cons: Ink bleeds into cheap paper, Six thirsty ink cartridges, No automatic document feeder, Bluetooth capability is optional, not built in
Conclusion: It was hard coming up with cons for the Pixma MP990 because it is such a useful printer. It does everything well, minus the occasional wait for the printer to prepare itself and a few half prints. The photo quality is fabulous and I loved being able to scan in all my old film I had at my house (luckily I’m a pack rat so I still had all my old film negatives).
Pros: Excellent photo quality, Film scan adapter, Large 3.8 LCD, Easy Scroll Wheel

Summary: For the avid photographer, Canon's PIXMA MP990 inkjet multifunction offers great print quality. It's easy to connect to your PC (either directly or over a network), but don't expect quick printouts.
Pros: Comprehensive connectivity, great print quality, easy to use
Cons: Prints slowly, Easy Scroll Wheel can be frustrating, can’t print documents from USB flash drives
Summary: Despite its squat size I doubt this All In One from Canon will ever pass the lounge police. Perhaps it is the silver grey colour but more likely the black band around the top edge; however as a man what matters to me is quality and performance .
Excerpt: MFPs are usually designed to adequately handle the basic printing and scanning tasks of a typical home user. Unlike most, Canon's Pixma MP990 is perfect if your interests call for high quality scanning and photo printing – such as design, photography or archiving old images. The MP990 has a CCD scanner, which has better colour reproduction than the CIS scanner engines in most MFPs, although it's also bulkier and more delicate.
TEST: Canon Pixma MP990 - Alt-i-ett-maskin som skanner film og dias
25 May 2011
Excerpt: Å snakke om at multifunksjonsmaskiner har et frynsete rykte, er kanskje å gå litt langt. Men feinschmeckere har gjerne holdt en knapp på dedikerte, individuelle skannere og skrivere, med argumenter om at det blir bedre kvalitet fra frittstående enheter.
Pros: Ypperlig fotoskriver, god kvalitet på skanning og kopiering av fotografisk materiale; flott film- og diasskanner innebygd i lokket.
Cons: Ingen dokumentmater for skanning og kopiering av kontordokumenter.
