Conclusion: Whilst not overtly flashy, the Canon Pixma MX7600 is a well-performing printer that stands up well across the board. Its multi-function capability doesn’t lend itself to specialized performance, but it certainly has a lot to give in terms of usability and flexibility. At around £250, the MX7600 isn’t cheap, but should provide some value over time.
Excerpt: Lately, we've been increasingly impressed by the capabilities of relatively small, relatively low-priced inkjet printer/scanner/copiers. Compared to such all-in-one compacts, Canon 's Pixma MX7600 is a bruiser: It weighs a hefty 37 pounds, measures a bulky 20 by 21 by 13 inches, and will set you back $400. So how does the MX7600 justify its price as a premium small-office paper-pusher?

Excerpt: First off - the big change with Canon's Pixma MX7600 is the introduction of a new formulation of ink called Pigment Reaction 'PgR'. There are five ink cartridges in all; Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black with a second, higher-intensity photo black pigment ink cartridge and a very large clear coat ink tank.
Summary: The Canon Pixma MX7600 multifunction is a huge improvement over the previous model. With additional features such as an autoduplexer, increased faxing options, and an upgraded control cockpit, we have no problem recommending the MX7600.
Pros: New clear ink cartridge improves print quality; auto-duplexer; dedicated one-touch fax keypad; intuitive photo-printing controls; increased faxing options; very fast photo and graphic prints.
Cons: Unwieldy size; text speed hasn't improved; higher price tag might deter prospective buyers.
Summary: Like other Canon all-in-one printers, this all-in-one printer is a useful and hardworking tool. Print quality is exceptional and it's a real convenience to be able to use plain paper and still get good results. It's a big and heavy piece of machinery and it's certainly priced at the high-end of the all-in-one inkjet market, and I don't think the boost in print quality is enough to make it a much better choice than other Pixmas; but if you want the top-of-the-line quality...
Summary: Its features are fantastic, and if PgR doesn't do away with the need for a stock of glossy paper, there'll certainly be plenty of occasions when it'll do as an solid second choice. The Canon Pixma MX7600 is fast and extremely capable. But it's not cheap to buy, and with six different ink tanks needing to be replaced, the cost of replacement consumables lead you into laser-printer territory â€“ even if actual running costs are decent.
