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...

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

Great Deal


I really enjoy this printer very much. It's easy to use, works great for my small business and general use. Quick copy & scan features with email options, fast printing and it's economical cost make the MP270 a great value. I haven't really worked with...

Outstanding product


When I purchased the printer I was unaware it was also a flatbed scanner. I've used a cannon flatbed for years so this printer replaced two items in the crowded computer area in my RV. Print quality is good as is the scanner capability. A great buy for...

This thing is something else. Very worth the money. Now ink is a little pricing compared to its other models. 32 for color, and 26 for black in my neck of the woods. not too bad, but when I first got this bad boy it would not print, it had some kinda...
