Excerpt: (1 items) The Canon Pixma MX420 lies in that tricky-to-shop-in, midpriced range of color inkjet multifunction printers. Costing just $150, it offers print, copy, scan, and fax capabilities, but certain missing features limit it to low-volume small or home offices. Its black ink is pricey, too Call us old-school, but we prefer a set of well-organized and clearly labeled button controls, such as those found on the Pixma MX420, over the cool but sometimes confusing...
Conclusion: The wireless Canon MX420 inkjet is a well-rounded printer, scanner, copier and fax machine with only a few problems. We feel that the problems it does have are small enough to be worked-around, such as the fact that the various printouts and photos would have red lines through the copy. Since this only happened a few times, the pros far outweigh the worst of the cons.
Pros: Great high quality photo printing in all sizes, Slightly lower overall energy consumption, Professional grade text printouts, No misfeeds, misalignments, or jams, Wireless capability
Cons: Red lines in the printouts were seen sparingly throughout our tests, Text draft mode scans appeared crooked, Printing in draft mode is no speedier than printing in default mode
Excerpt: The Canon Pixma MX420 lies in that tricky-to-shop-in, mid-priced range of colour inkjet multifunction printers. Costing just £129, it offers print, copy, scan, and fax capabilities, but certain missing features limit it to low-volume small or home offices. Its black ink is pricey, too. Although the like-priced HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer is faster and offers cheaper inks, the Pixma MX420 has better print quality and design.
