Canon Pixma MP160

 

The scanner platen is big enough to hold originals up to A4 size, and the lid's hinges rear back to accommodate thick originals, such as textbooks. A PictBridge port on the front of the printer lets you print photos directly from a...

Inexpensive; excellent prints; PictBridge port; relatively cheap printing costs.

Subpar scanning; dearth of features; lacks media card slots.

The entry-level Canon Pixma MP160 is a decent all-in-one printer for the price, but don't be tempted by the entry-level machine: the Pixma MP180 costs a mere $10 more and provides the same print quality and a ton more features.

Price, easy to print from the MP Navigator

Doesn't have a colour-LCD or memory card slot, some streaking when copying in mono

The Canon Pixma MP160's everyday print jobs came out crisp, while scans are above-average but with limited resolution. The lack of a memory card slot could be an important omission.

Canon PIXMA MP160 Multi-Function Device

 

A Canon all-in-one for under £40!

Software bundled with the PIXMA MP-160 covers all aspects of its operation, with OCR for text scanning from the Contact Image Sensor (CIS) scanner, Canon's own Easy Photo and Easy Web Print and photo editing with ArcSoft’s PhotoStudio.
