Excerpt: Canon Pixma MX870 has five ink cartridge system and I really like these layouts because they save money. Four tanks are reserved for colors and one is black for text printing. Canon says that color ink cartridge will cost $12.99 and the black inks are priced at $14.90. The company further says that black and white sheets will cost three cents and color documents will put you back by five cents. A four inch by six inch color photo will put you back by 29 cents.
Excerpt: If you take the minimalist design of the Canon Pixma MX330, add the functionality of the Pixma MX7600, and throw in built-in Wi-Fi, you’ll end up with the Canon Pixma MX870. It offers wireless networking while still maintaining all the features you need to print, scan, fax, and copy. Despite its sporadic hiccups in output speed, we recommend the $199 Pixma MX870 as a worthwhile printer for shoppers that need a multifunctional printer at a very reasonable cost.
Summary: Like Canon's other printers in its Pixma MX-series, the stylish MX870 has versatile features, including a handy scroll wheel and an ample 2.5-inch LCD, to help you get the job done. We recommend the Canon Pixma MX870 as a do-it-all device with an affordable price tag; just be ready to stomach its intermittent print lag.
