Canon PIXMA MX850 Multifunction Printer - MX850C

This is an All-In-One powerhouse. Thanks to its patented print head technology and 5-color ink system, you'll create spectacular photos with 9600 x 2400 color dpi resolution1, and fast: A photo lab quality 4" x 6" borderless print takes only about 21 seconds2. Copies will be remarkably true to the originals, and when scanning photos you'll produce impressive 4800-dpi results, with vibrant 48-bit color depth. The built-in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) holds up to 35 originals and enables automatic duplexing, so you don’t have to wait, then manually turn over your 2-sided original. This versatile machine is networkable via an Ethernet connection. You can also print photos right from memory cards3—selecting and enhancing images on the high-resolution 2.5" color TFT display—or directly from a digital camera.

      Comments about Canon PIXMA Multifunction Printer:

      For the money this printer is a good one. The print quality is very good, although the blacks may be on the weak side. For documents with black and color graphics it is more than adequate. However, for pictures it could do with two more colors to enhance the picture quality.(The HP photosmart line of printers has two addtional ink tanks;it has a darker blue and magenta; that make pictures much brighter and cost about $10). The ink tanks for the Canon cost about $5 more but I don't know how long they will last as I have only had the printer for about a month. The speed is very good and the print quality is great.

      Setup was a bit slow but as compared to other printers it was comparable. When setting up a network you need to use both the USB and ethernet cable. After installation you remove the USB cable. It will now run through your router and you should be able to leave your computer off while running a laptop or other desktop.

      Copying using the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) works fine. I did have a problem with my few initial copies as the machine gave me an error that stated the paper was too long. Going into the menu settings cleared this up. An email to Canon gave me the answer. Double sided copying and printer is a plus for this machine.

      Faxing works great once you configure your phone, answering machine and printer. You may have to play with it for awhile to correct any conflicts. My problem was that the rings can only be set to 2, 4 or 6 rings before the answering machine picks up or the fax machine will answer. Setting the fax machine to 8 rings solved this problem.

      Scanning works just as well as the copying. The software provided is more than adequate. Just remember where the scanned document is stored so you can access it.

      The construction of the machine is sturdy although the bottom paper cartridge is a bit on the flimsy side. It only holds about 100 sheet, but you also have the paper loader in the back for more. The LCD screen is nice and easy to read. Footprint is large but it fit my printer stand which is 15 by 20 inches just fine. It hangs over a bit in the back but is not a problem.

      Overall a fine machine, a little noisy but not Obnoxiously so. A little on the big side but that I believe was to accomodate the duplex function. Lots of features that you will just have to read about on the spec sheet. A good all-around all-in-one home office machine.

      This replaced a 3 year old MP730 which experienced many jams and eventually needed a major roller repair. Trust this unit will last longer. So far, its doing a fine job.

      I have a small business and general home use. Printing and copying is fast and comparatively quiet. FAX setup is not as friendly as my old HP. This FAX has limitations when used with a remote answering machine and I must use the manual mode to receive a FAX. Research before buying.

        Printer still pretty new but so far it has done every thing I have asked it to do! Lowest ink cartridge is still 2/3 full. Love the duplex to print on both sides to save paper. Also love the dual paper source, I put scrap paper in the rear feed to print e-mails and things I won't save. I put fresh paper in the cassette to print documents.
