  • High Performance Individual Ink System — This 5-color ink system consists of four dye-based inks plus a pigment-based black ink, producing exceptional photos and crisp, laser-quality text. Only replace the color ink tank that runs out. So, you save money on ink!
  • EasyPhoto-Print EX — Your days of driving to the store or waiting on long lines at a kiosk to print your photos are over. Do it yourself at home with your Canon PIXMA printer!

Plus, with one touch of your mouse, EasyPhoto-Print automatically crops images, corrects red-eye, smoothes facial lines and skin tone and even brightens and sharpens faces.
  • Images Per Minute (IPM) — In March 2009, the International Standards Organization implemented a print standard for inkjet printer document print speeds which is a universal measure utilizing three types of standardized test documents in "real world" conditions - one, four page Excel document, one - four page Word document and one-four page PDF document. This new standard will allow you to easily compare the print speeds of printers manufactured by different companies.

Ease of Use

  • Fully-Integrated Duplex Auto Document Feeder — The built-in 35 sheet Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) makes it easy to copy, scan or fax multiple documents without having to load them one at a time.

  • Auto Photo Fix II — This built-in technology automatically categorizes your images into one of five types - Portrait, Scenery, Night Scenery, Snapshot with Scenery, and Snapshot with Night Scenery - then applies optimal image and multi-zone exposure correction. So, unexposed areas of the photo will be optimized, area by area and faces that are backlit and under-exposed will automatically be brightened with correct color cast to help ensure more accurate skin tones for gorgeous images.
  • 2 Way Paper Feeding —To add to your options this feature lets you load paper from the front cassette or rear tray so whether your office or photo lab is open, you're ready to print!
  • Easy-WebPrint EX — Easy-WebPrint EX gives you the ability to print what you want off the web, easily. Stop the madness of printing page-after-page.

    This little unit is amazing. It truly is an all-in-one unit because it does everything. My favorite feature is the automatic duplex scanning. Just throw a stack of papers in the feeder and it does all the work. As a teacher, I constantly need to scan double-sided documents and just for this feature alone, the MX870 is more than worth the money. (Many other manufacturers offer duplex printing on their all-in-ones, but not duplex scanning). I was skeptical because this unit is so inexpensive, but it is a terrific product. One issue I have read in reviews online is that people have problems with setting up the MX870 on a wireless network. I had no problems at all. It found the SSID, I entered the password and it worked instantly. (I keep my SSID hidden in my router settings, so I made it visible, set up the MX870 and then hid it again. Once the printer has the SSID and password stored, it will work perfectly. If you don’t know what I am talking about, then this won’t even apply to you because most people don’t hide their SSID). It really couldn’t have been any easier! I also would like to say that I love the scanning software that came with the product. I do not ever use bundled software…until now. It is extremely easy and offers the ability to review and rearrange before saving, and will save direct to PDF. I also tried it with Adobe Acrobat (8 & 9) and Photoshop (CS3-CS5) and it worked perfectly!! I have been scanning, copying and printing with this unit and have not had even one problem. I have never written an online review for a product before, but this thing is so great I felt like I had to throw out my two cents. Quit wasting time and order the MX870 now!

    I purchased the MX870 as a replacement for the MX350, an earlier version that liked quite a bit. Turns out that one of the few changes they made was to use an ink cartridge that is that is 34% smaller. The black ink cartridge on the MX870 prints 324 pages per cartridge while the black ink cartridge on the MX350 printed 510. That's 34% less ink per cartridge in the new printer for the same price cartridge. I would never have purchased this printer if I knew they had changed the cartridge size just to make more money off unsuspecting customers who thought they were upgrading to a better printer, and didn't realize it was a money sink. You've lost my endorsement.

      It does the job ok. WiFi set was easy I have had this printer for a while now. I had to buy it in a pinch and it was cheap...that said, I've easily spent 3x on ink since purchase. The inks are small and expensive. Look into a printer's toner yield before making a purchase. The printer is cheap, but they more than making up for it on replacement toner.

        Comments about Canon Wireless All-In-One Office Printer With 2.5" LCD And Auto Duplex ADF:

        My last printer from canon lasted 8 years and was very sturdy. This one is a piece of junk, made out of cheap plastic material. It feels and performs like a printer you would get at a dollar store. Very upset, I was looking for the most expensive multi-function printer that takes 5 inks and this happened to be the only one at the store. I figured...well, its a canon, how bad can it get, but it seems that their printers can get worse over time.

          Pros

          • High Quality Construction

          Best Uses

            Comments about Canon Wireless All-In-One Office Printer With 2.5" LCD And Auto Duplex ADF:

            Bought one of these printers about a year ago, and have been using it pretty much constantly. The scanner function is excellent, the print quality is outstanding, and I really like both the duplex printing function and the ability to load letterhead type paper in the back and auto-select. The only minor issue is the cost of the ink tanks, although it does last for a good long while on the large black tank. It is possible to refill tanks with a little reprogrammer, and with that it's the most incredible value ever. But even if you just buy their ink, it's an excellent printer.

            • instruction book could have been better

              Comments about Canon Wireless All-In-One Office Printer With 2.5" LCD And Auto Duplex ADF:

              We previously had a Canon MP830. Two things I can say about this printer is that it is not ergonomically designed. I have accidently shut if off while lifting the lid because the on/off swith is too close to the edge of the lid. Also, I sit to the left of the printer and it seems to unpleasantly pinch my thumb every time I let down the lid. This printer will print on both sides of the copy paper. It will not scan both sides of the original paper.

              Comments about Canon Wireless All-In-One Office Printer With 2.5" LCD And Auto Duplex ADF:

              This printer only works occasionally. It has been extremely frustrating to deal with. I have it set up wireless and have Windows 7 and Vista computers. Sometimes when I print, the printing window will show up but it never prints. Other times nothing at all happens. About half of the time when it actually does print, it will print only a portion of the document or photo and then spit out the paper. The scanner function is equally frustrating and not work the time. Canon knows how to make great cameras and lenses, but they do not know how to make software for printers.

              We purchased this unit about a year ago and it does everything we need. I've seen other reviews complain about WIFI issues, but we have had no problems. The one issue I do have that others have noted is that if you run out of a colored ink it wont print at all, even in black and white, which is a poor design. Ran into that issue once and now just make sure i have backup ink in all colors.

                I've had this printer for approximately an year and have had nothing but trouble with printing/scanning on a network. Canon's ijnetwork software is completely unreliable when used in a Mac network environment. Other printers, utilizing the Bonjour communications, work just fine. Canon has issued several driver updates over the course of my ownership but the problem persists. They need to just replace ijnetwork with Bonjour and get on with it.

                  I have had some issues with this printer. However, I can say it is terribly frustrating that if a color cartridge goes EMPTY, YOU CANNOT USE YOUR MACHINE. Ugh on the night of a closing on a home I surely didn't need to have this happen at 11pm! Won't recommend this machine to anyone.
