Canon PIXMA MP230 review

 

Canon's entry-level PIXMA MP230 is aimed at people who don't need a top-spec MFP. You can't install it on a network or use it to print photos from a memory card, it won't send faxes and it doesn't even have a proper paper output tray. Instead, it's a...

A cheap MFP without punishing running costs, the PIXMA MP230 is an entry-level bargain

Consumer review by: Annoyed (productreview.com.au)

False economy. Ink runs out very quickly.

 

he inks run out.". If it wasn't a landfill issue, that is exactly what I would do. The printer cost me $25.88 with two ink cartridges installed. One ink cartridge by itself costs $23.00. My old (broken) printer used to print around 80 black and white...

Best of the cheapies at $12, still supplies are overpriced

 

This is the third of them under-priced multi function printers I just could not resist. It is the heaviest but it print and scan qualities are excellent. Bring your own USB cord, correctly declared on box. No wireless, no output paper tray but built in...
