Canon PIXMA MP270 Photo All-In-One Printer

 

If you're in the market for a home or light office use all-in-one, the Canon PIXMA MP270 makes a very good choice. You can pay less for the same features, or get more features at the same price, but you won't get the same speed or resolution. In...

This low-budget Canon multifunction printer is simple to set up and prints reasonable quality pictures from your digital camera

 

Canon's PIXMA MP270 certainly doesn't offer the best print quality available on the market, but for its $79 price tag you get a well-built product with a reasonable scanner and decent if unspectacular photo printing abilities. It's not fast, but for...

Quick and simple set up over USB, reasonable scan quality, low price for included features

Not fast to print text or images at high quality settings, display can be confusing without reading the manual

Canon PIXMA MP270 - All-in-One Inkjet Printer

 

This all-in-one printer with scanner is as cheap as they come.

Canon PIXMA MP270 review

 

With a price tag of £59 — to throw that into perspective, it's hardly more expensive than buying two full replacement ink cartridges — it's surprisingly fully featured, offering scanning, photocopying and, of course, printing. Shop around online and...

The Canon PIXMA MP270 isn't going to win any speed or printing quality awards, but it is very attractively priced. The inclusion of reasonable scanning quality makes this printer a no-brainer — if you predominantly print documents and photos where...

Canon - PIXMA MP270 All-in-One printer

 

The competition for the most efficient and affordable All-in-One printer shows no sign of cooling down, with Canon releasing the latest in its PIXMA multifunction range for less than £60. In fact, we discovered prices significantly ...

Although you may find yourself getting through the ink cartridges relatively quickly, both the quality of the prints and the speed of operation were impressive and, for the price, the PIXMA MP270 would be an excellent choice for a low-yield All-in-One.

Satisfied

 

The price is right. I wanted a decent all in one printer for light use and this item meets my needs all the way around ; I'm happy with the purchase ; It's a nice compact size and the system software seems user friendly and works well

The only negative I come up with at this point is that it is a noisy machine. It goes through a lot of noisy resetting during start up and after finishing a print job etc. .... If that is at all a concern for your needs, then don't buy this printer

Overall good printer

 

Just really wishing this had the same power saving capabilities of the cheap canon

prints good pictures. good document print speed. Overall a good printer for the price

my el cheapo canon had the ability to turn itself on when you sent something to the printer and turn off after a set amount of time. Kind of makes me wonder why this one doesn't. It's a great feature for a networked printer

Very satisfied with the printer with low price

 

Although this is photo all-in-one printer, I use it for just daily uses and not yet checked on printing pictures. Some sample printing papers were included with inks - one color and one black, but I just used regular letter size paper to print. It has...

Great for the price

 

A nice all-in-one printer, especially for the price of ~$45. It arrived two days after the day I ordered it. It scans and prints well. The photo printing function prints clear pictures on the sample glossy photo paper that was included (5 sheets). I...

It did not come with a USB cable, which is necessary to connect to your desktop/laptop
