Canon Pixma MP600 all-in-one inkjet printer

£110 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Canon

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Canon Pixma MP600 is a solid multipurpose device that combines a printer, scanner, and media card reader at a reasonable price.

The Canon Pixma MP600 is a solid multipurpose device that combines a printer, scanner, and media card reader at a reasonable price. It lacks a built-in fax, making it problematic for office use, and serious photographers will bemoan the fact that it doesn't scan film; however, the Canon Pixma MP600 makes up for these missing features with good paper handling and fast, high-quality printing.

Each of the Canon Pixma MP600's two paper trays can hold up to 150 sheets. The cassette in the base is well suited for plain paper, while the upright feeder at the rear is convenient for switching among different sizes of photo paper. The Canon Pixma MP600's built-in duplexer lets you make two-sided prints. You can scan images up to letter size from the glass platen, but the scanner lacks an automatic document feeder for scanning larger sizes or several pages at once.

The Pixma MP600's control panel features Canon's new iPod-like Easy-Scroll Wheel. It works well with the flip-up 2.5in colour LCD for navigating the menus and for printing images from a digital camera's memory card. Before printing an image, you can preview various editing changes, such as red-eye removal, cropping, and conversion to sepia or an antique color effect.

The two media slots sit behind a door on the right-front side of the Canon Pixma MP600. They accept most types of memory cards, but you'll need a third-party USB adapter to read xD-Picture, Memory Stick Duo, and Mini SD Card formats. The direct-print port lets you print directly from a PictBridge-equipped digital camera, using the camera's screen and controls. You can also plug Canon's Bluetooth adapter into the direct-print port to allow printing from compatible handheld devices. An IrDA port lets you beam photos from camera phones and PDAs that have infrared transmitters. The Canon Pixma MP600 doesn't support printing from USB flash drives, however.
