An above-average all-in-one geared towards those who print more text than photos.

Excerpt: Meet the Canon PIXMA MX882, a new all-in-one printer from Canon. Though it's slightly more expensive than your average home printer, it does have some helpful features like a copier and scanner that make it a decent pickup for home or office use.
Summary: The Canon Pixma MX882 is a worthy upgrade to the Pixma line. While it offers many of the same features as the MX860, it's much faster and almost the same price. The printer has built-in wireless and an automatic duplexer, and an extended keypad that helps keep the printer's face from being overly busy (though it's still pretty full). Speeds were excellent, particularly for photos, and quality was everything I expected from a Canon printer.
Excerpt: (1 items) The Canon Pixma MX882 is one of many color inkjet multifunction printers offering full print/copy/scan/fax functionality, plus Wi-Fi, for about $200. The Pixma MX882 has versatile paper handling, as well as a stylish design. Canon's control-panel design scores big points for creativity, but it sacrifices utility for cleverness. The culprit is a four-by-four grid of buttons that accompany the 3-inch color LCD, and light up or darken according to function.
Pros: Versatile paper handling, Midrange or better speeds
Cons: Plain-paper color quality errs on the ruddy side
