Conclusion: If you have more than one computer and you are looking for a new All-In-One office printer, then I think this one would be great. Because this is not a photo printer I won’t complain that the photos were not very good, but I will say that I was disappointed in the speed of the document printing. As I mentioned above, the printer would stop printing about every 3 pages, my assumption is so that it could fill up its memory.
Summary: Canon touts the Canon Pixma MX850 as a multifunction powerhouse, and it's worthy of such a description. On top of being fast, easy to use, and excellent at outputting documents and photos, the MX850 includes features such as a duplexer and an automatic document feeder - making it an office-friendly printer. Despite its less-than-impressive scanner output, the Pixma MX850 is a stellar choice.

Excerpt: The Canon MX850 inkjet multifunction printer is an all-in-one device, capable of copying, printing from memory card and PC, faxing and scanning. This hefty (at 30.7 lbs) device is aimed at the home office user who wants it all, but in one device. It does this along with working as a stand-alone device using the 2.5 inch TFT screen and control panel keys.
Summary: This is a multi function unit (as it has fax ) but for me anyway the major selling point is it’s ability to print A4 photo quality borderless images in 68seconds, yes I do mean one minute and eight seconds.
