Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Has lots of functions, quality appears good so far and is very cheap.
Bad points:
Takes ages to start a task and makes lots of whirring and grinding noises before it gets going. Maybe a faulty machine but others have commented on it noisiness. Irritating!

The stylish All-In-One for the home office

Perfect for the home or office
Featuring a stylish all-black design, this productive All-In-One gives you everything you need for the home office environment. Print, copy, scan and fax capabilities as well as Wi-Fi and network connectivity allow you to place this multifunctional wherever best suits.

High quality
Canon’s FINE technology with minimum 2pl ink drops and up to 4800×1200dpi print resolution ensures glorious colours and crisp text – great for business documents or photos.

Quick and easy operation
An intuitive 6.2cm TFT display on the device makes it easy to view selected functions and preview images prior to printing. When copying, a Reserve Copy function lets you scan in the next document while the previous document is being processed to save time.

30-sheet ADF
An integrated 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder means scanning, copying or faxing of large documents can be done quickly and with minimal effort. Scan and save to a compact pdf ensures a small file size, ideal for saving or e-mailing.

Productive performance
Enjoy print speeds of 8.7 ipm in mono or 5.0 ipm in colour. Quick Start means this All-In-One is ready to go seconds after switching on. A 10×15 cm borderless photo can also be printed in approximately 42 seconds.

Scan to USB or memory card
A USB and memory card port on the front allows PDFs and JPEGs to be scanned to either – without a PC. Bluetooth connectivity can be purchased as an option to print from Bluetooth compatible devices.

Fast faxing
33.6kbps Super G3 faxing is fast and reliable. Incoming faxes can be saved to a memory card or USB key – so you can view them without printing each one – reducing print costs.

Print photos from movies
Turn your Canon digital camera movie moments into beautiful prints with Canon’s Full HD Movie Print feature. Simply play your movie on a PC and capture the frame or frames to print.

Intelligent software
Photo printing has never been simpler thanks to Easy-PhotoPrint EX, offering features such as red-eye correction, and face smoothing, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Auto Document Fix enhances the quality and legibility of scans by making intelligent automatic adjustments to every page. Content from multiple websites can be effortlessly combined and printed with Easy-WebPrint EX.
