Crisp and clean photographs
Overall, the Canon PIXMA Pro-100 is a versatile printer that is more than capable of meeting the needs of the casual amateur or the avid professional. The greatest strength of this printer is the print quality. When printing on the highest quality settings, the print quality is truly remarkable. The colors are brilliant, the pictures have good depth, and the images are crisp and clean.
Excellent colour and mono prints
Although Canon's Pixma Pro-1 still offers the ultimate in A3+ (13 x 19 inches) print quality, we've been impressed at how close the Canon Pixma Pro-100 comes to matching the performance of its considerably pricier sibling.
Despite being around 30% lighter than the Canon Pixma Pro-1, build quality is superb. And though the Canon Pixma Pro-100 is no featherweight, we'd sooner trade portability for robustness.
Once setup, the printer was very straight forward to use
So, which is the better printer - the pigment Pro-10 which was introduced at the same time, replacing the Pro9500 Mark II, or the Pro-100? It's a very tough decision. If you do most of your printing on photo papers, particularly luster and gloss, and you shoot a lot of landscape/flower type photos, the Pro-100 is a clear winner. For fine art media, and especially fine art black and white, the choice isn't as clear. The Pro-10 has a matte black, but lacks the second gray.
Delivers excellent results on glossy media
This printer is ideal for enthusiast photographers who like printing on glossy paper and who don't produce large quantities of prints.
The decision to purchase this printer will probably depend on whether you see it as good value for money. In fact, the main reason we haven't nominated the Pro-100 as an Editor's Choice is its comparatively high price tag in Australia. (At US$500, readers in North America should consider it worth its price.)
Disc printing functions and wireless technologies
We liked the looks and touch controls of the Canon Pixma MG6350, and were impressed with the print/scan speeds and quality - although not by the bundled software, which we'd recommend you avoid where possible for better third-party photo editors, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements or Apple's iPhoto. A big standout of this multifunction device is CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc printing, which despite being a bit confusing at first (blame that Canon software) is great once you've worked it out.
Touch panel controls, Neat twin paper trays
The Canon MG6350 undoubtebly possesses some great usability and style features, but Canon really needs to sort out the cartridge management on its range of latest generation photo all-in-one printers. Having to wait half a minute or more before printing starts just isn't acceptable.
Sleek, in black or white, classy touch controls
Running costs are similar to the Epson at 2.8p for mono and 9p for colour pages, and there are plenty of other parallels between the two. They're both photo specialists with their own strengths, but the Canon's excellent text output makes it a real all-rounder.
Ability to print direct on to optical disks
While more than capable of producing text documents, the MG6350 comes into its own when printing photos from memory cards or stored on a computer. Actual print times for 10 x 15 and A4 photos are shown in the table below. To these timings you need to add a certain amount of processing time. In the case of images stored on memory cards, processing time is minimal.
Card slots, including CompactFlash, Neat cartridge cover
The Canon PIXMA MG7150 is a good all-round all-in-one for home and particularly photo-enthusiast use. Its neat design and clever control panel are supported by good wireless provision, making it well-suited to customers who need to print from a variety of different devices.
Good text and photo quality
The Canon Pixma MG5220 is a good printer with an interesting mix of standard and unique features allowing the customer to do more at a low initial cost. For $149.99, the Pixma MG5220 offers quality text and photo prints quickly, low energy consumption, auto duplexing, a front side USB port, two-way paper feeding, good software (with Memory Card Import and Full HD Movie Print) and an easy to use control panel.
Low-profile design, Twin paper trays
The Canon PIXMA MG5450 is a worthwhile all-in-one, with quality print and plenty of useful extras, though it's not without a problem. Inkjet housekeeping slows many print jobs while it prepares itself. This may not be a problem for you, but even piezo-electric devices, more prone to having to prime their ink systems regularly, are usually more efficient.
All-in-One product offering print, scan and copy functionality
The PIXMA MG5450 supports various remote printing options. With PIXMA Cloud Link you can print direct from the Internet. You can select and print images stored on the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY and Google's Picasa. There is also support for Apple AirPrint.
Fast and easy
I have only had it a couple of days but I am impressed. I got it to replace a Canon MX870 in order to get Airprint and a speed boost. Setup was a breeze. The Airprint works perfectly. The Fax function works just fine. It is much faster printing than the MX870. The only small drawback is that the second tray only holds photo paper and not envelopes. The MX870 could hold the envelopes in the upper paper feeder. The 922 requires that you feed the envelopes through the lower paper tray.
Improved print speeds, Larger paper capacity
Canon continues to improve their office lineup, which is what you want to see from a manufacturer. While design and most of the specs are very similar to past generation Pixma Office AIOs, the Pixma MX922 does improve on both black and color print speeds (thank you Canon for getting rid of those pesky color processing pauses), the size of the paper cassette (an extra 100 pages) and ease of use (setting up Google Cloud Print was a breeze).
Solutions that will save you money
Canon MX922 is a solid choice for your home or small office printing needs. It's has well-balanced features for whatever you want to use it for. Only big busy offices or professional photographers might want to consider something else. For your All-in-One printing needs, I'd recommend checking out this Canon!
I am really impressed with this printer from Canon. It scans, prints, copies, prints 2-up, prints CD/DVD disks, etc. The included software is impressive and it is very compact for all-in-one device. It can be operated wireless or direct connect. I have it USB-connected to one computer and wireless to another plus an iPad. Setup on my network was flawless using the install CD and touch-screen operator panel.
Terrific and accurate color - when using Canon photo paper
As a photo printer with scanning and copying capabilities, the MG6320 will meet many - if not most - home users- printing needs. It's easy to set up and running, and it's good looking. But if you need high quality output on plain paper, we did not achieve this in our testing. If you plan on using the MG6320 to print photos or other high quality images for presentation purposes, stick with Canon's paper and you'll get good results.
Great All-in-one Printer
I am very happy with this printer. I had to wait several months before this new model actually became available, but it was worth the wait. The printer and scanner work great with Windows 8, which was the main reason I was looking for a new all-in-one printer in the first place.
Will do its job well
Canon MX522 is another affordable all-in-one printer solution from Canon. It's not the fastest or cheapest-to-operte printer in the bunch. It's clearly made with home printers in mind who want to print documents and photos now and then. I'd recommend getting it for your occasional home printing needs.
I have had this printer for about a month and really really like it. I bought it to replace a Brother (click on my name to read my review on that one). Although my previous multi-function device worked well, this Canon has the following improvements: Scans in duplex, has an ID-card photocopy function that I love, and MOST OF ALL IT IS QUIET. I do not use the fax feature. I have a PC with windows 7 and I was able to install it easily.
Much like the US-only Canon MF4880dw, the MF4890dw delivers a well-balanced set of features. The bonus here is that the MF4890dw also offers a duplexing ADF, so you can scan, copy, or fax duplex documents. This effort from Canon is a fast performer which produces decent quality results, and it's well worth the asking price.
