Review: Canon Pixma MX882 Multifunction Printer

PCWorld: Review – Canon Pixma MX882 Multifunction Printer

PCWorld’s reviewers say this $150 multifunction color inkjet printer delivers “midrange or better” print speeds and good paper handling, but color print quality is less than perfect.

“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 (as of April 6, 2011). Although the Epson WorkForce 635 outshines it in speed and ink costs, the Pixma MX882 has more versatile paper handling, as well as a more 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. The lit symbols aren’t centered, but rather offset to the left. The overall effect is somewhat disconcerting; even after we got used to it, the spread of the buttons remained a bit uncomfortable to use.”
