Canon PIXMA MX897 All in One Printer Detailed Specification

Regular printers offer you average usage. In case of presentation or color printer compromising with quality is something not recommended. Canon Pixma MX879 is the current age printer which comes with enhanced featured, wifi connectivity and cloud printing options. With a LAN port at the backside you can print from printer from where ever you want. The printer also support wifi printer through which you can use your iphone to print photos instantly. The design is made for ease and comfort. With a widescreen 3inch LCD screen on the front, you can operate the printer, scan your photos or send faxes instantly. As you can see the small glimpse of front screen buttons. The Menu is provided just below ON button which is much easier to locate. The COPY, FAX, SCAN and PHOTO button offer you easy access for printing and faxing your documents. The screen is quiet wide giving you a full touch panel with various options listed at the time of scanning or printing. There are other buttons towards the right size for more support. I liked the Black and Color buttons which can easily give you a choice t print a black or color photo.


Check the below images, which will provide you a more clear idea about the design. As the image is shown compared to that the printer is quiet big. I like the designed very well. It offers you a different look. It is not like just all other All in printer The ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) at the top is added separately to put only documents for scanning or printing while the below one gives you result. So if you want to copy a document instantly you just need to insert that on the top make the settings and you can receive the print below. The same is applicable for multiple printing. Canon PIXMA MX897 looks a great combination of nice design and feature. What we most expect from an All in one Printer is affordable printing quality, fax and scan support. This gives a bit higher. The printer prints documents very silently. Noise is another annoying thing in printers. Mostly when you had keep a number of documents. Canon has take special care to make this printer as much calm as possible, so that it does not disturb you much while working. I am not sure about the any special sound control mechanism but the body itself gives the idea about the same. With color printer you can go a bit economical with black and white printing. The quality of the same can be adjusted as per your need from the menu itself.


Another great feature this printer has is connectivity web to give you more features of online printer. Somehow Canon Pixma MX879 offer you Web Album printer through Canon iMAGE Gateway. If you have a Picasa account then you can simply print your photos directly from the printer. It does not matter what number of albums you had stored. You can get the same rich quality photos that usually print from your existing photos. Canon introduced a new Cloud Ink support where you can print many themes from web. You can print various web templates from Canon server directly from the printer. Also you can use Google Cloud Print. For accessing this feature you have to create an account in Google Cloud Print. This is a new integration which provides you to print directly from the web without worrying about the printer drive. Cloud Print also supports different kind of Smartphone’s. There is no need to put the printer on wifi network or install different kinds of applications. So if you have an Air Print setup or simply a Windows wifi network with single Google Cloud Print account multiple devices on the network can access the printer. This is quiet a better way to express your ideas. For those who need some ready to use templates for office work, Canon server can help you. You can create nice office stationeries from the default templates stored on the web server.

Re: Canon PIXMA MX897 All in One Printer

One more important feature this printer offers you is HD Movie Print. This feature provides you to print movies in multiple images. For example if you shot a small movie you can create a set of photos on single page to view the movie. This only supports .mov format. Another important thing to ensure that this feature is mostly supported by some Canon Digital Cameras only. So this thing is good for those who want to create a set of documents of from the movie they shot. It is simply printing your movies instantly on the printer in color form. Along with all this kind of features Canon PIXMA MX897 also gives you quality and speed. You can print at maximum 9600x2400 dpi which is quiet awesome. The speed on the same is never compromised. A better option for science project.

Conclusion :

Canon PIXMA MX897 All in One Printer is an advance printer. The printer prices lies between Rs.16,000 to 17,000 which is a bit higher. But as per the features mentioned it is a worth product. The printer is quiet not recommended for industrial purpose where you have to print hundreds of pages daily. It is for office use, giving a clear and rich printer quality. As compared to other All in One printers this is one of the best printer to give you wifi output and other cloud print features. Though a bit overcharged the printer offers clean printing solution with a Eco friendly button.
