Prints and faxes from, as well as scans to, a PC. Standalone copier and fax. Automatic document feeder. Wi-Fi

No wired network support. Slow

As its name implies, the Canon Pixma MX452 Wireless Office All-In-One Printer is one of a relatively few multifunction printers (MFPs) in its price range designed more for office, rather than home, needs. The focus shows up in office-centric features...

Good, but Loud


I have not yet scanned anything aside from a photocopy. I assume from "scanner" being in the tech description than I can scan a physical photo/handout and digitize it to a file on my computer. I probably won't end up using the fax feature.

Easy wireless connectivity. Following the poster-sized instructions which came with the printer, the WPS connection to our router took half a minute ; Fast Printing with good color ; Simple Ink cartridges. Instead of 3 different color cartridges, there...

Loud. This printer is replacing the our previous, 5-year-old Cannon InkJet printer. The moving pieces in this printer are extraordinarily noticeably louder than our previous model. The whole unit sounds loud, clumsy, and hollow in contrast to the...

Good for the money


Easy to set up and offers great features like print, copy, fax and scan. The quality of the printing is acceptable but the colors are not as vibrant as my old Epson. Also, printing is a little slow but again, acceptable. The wireless feature is great...

Cannon Pixma MX922 works with my PS3


This printer might work with the PS3. The cannon website says the Pixma MX 410 and Pixma 420 works with the PS3. This printer is probably a newer version of those printers. I have the Pixma 922 and it works.The set up is easy. One connects the printer,...

Poor wireless performance


I bought this as an economical printer to replace an aging HP photosmart printer, based on basic printing needs and slightly less cost for supplies. I use Canon regularly for personal and business use, as well as Brother and HP. While I like the Canon...
