Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Canon Pixma MP510 is a general-purpose all-in-one that prints high-quality photos at an affordable price.

The Canon Pixma MP510 is a general-purpose all-in-one that prints high-quality photos at an affordable price.

Canon's Pixma MP510 is an affordable combination of printer, scanner, and media card reader. The Canon Pixma MP510 lacks the frills that come with many multifunction printers, such as film scanning and faxing, but you can get the basics done quickly and with a minimum of fuss.

A flap to the right of the Canon Pixma MP510 folds up to reveal the control panel. The 1.9in colour LCD is smaller than that of many competing models. The Canon Pixma MP510 also lacks the iPod-like Easy-Scroll Wheel that Canon is introducing with most of its latest printers, including the Canon MP600 (reviewed here) and MP960 models.

The Canon Pixma MP510's in-printer editing functions are limited to automatic photo optimisation and face-brightening options, which don't require the larger screens and fancier controls of its pricier siblings. If you expect to work mostly from your PC, then the LCD size and controls are largely irrelevant.

The two media slots, which sit behind a door on the Canon Pixma MP510's front panel, accept most types of digital camera memory cards, but you'll need a third-party adaptor to read xD-Picture, Memory Stick Duo, and Mini SD Card formats. The PictBridge port, for printing directly from compatible cameras, is hidden beneath the media-slot door in the recessed base of the unit, making it a little difficult to access.
