Review: Canon Pixma MP480 multifunction device

 

Canon's Pixma MP480 doesn't have all of the fancy features found on some of the MFPs we've tested recently, like integrated fax capabilities, an automatic document feeder, or wireless connectivity. But the MP480 proved to be a very capable device in...

Easy to set up and install, the light gray and black MP480 is both compact and attractive. It connects to your Mac via USB 2.0 and uses two ink cartridges, one black and one tri-color (cyan, magenta, and yellow)

Canon's PIXMA MP480 offers a good compromise between quality and price. It certainly isn't the fastest of printers, but its consistency and print qual...

Good quality printing, consistent mono printing speeds

Printing is generally slow, scanning quality could be better, feels flimsy

Though the MP480 suffers from the major flaws found in other budget multifunctions, it largely makes up for these problems through decent quality printing.

Great printer for the price

 

Been in my business for 6 years. I brought this printer for my parents (without seeing it from New Egg.) arrived in 2 days (new egg is AWSUM) I am satisfied with the printer for my parents and I'm a prefectionist. I don't like the fact it's ... Expand...

Excllent print quality, Fast scanner, easy software to learn scanning features on. Speed is good enough. It' has a card reader also

Built Kind of Flimzey but so are most Lower end models. If this printer was built just a little more stronger I would own it But for my 70 year old parents they loved it. They used to have an hp I picked out about 2 years ago and they hated it

Consumer review by:

Slightly above average for the price.

 

Good photo quality, great price, great design

Horrible bluetooth, It's a little tricky setting it up with a mac

Consumer review by:

Brand Spanking New Piece of JUNK.

 

I bought this printer through Apple because they gave a $100 rebate. And I am glad I did, because if I had paid $100 for this piece of junk, then I would be on the phone right now with Canon telling them that they better refund it to me asap. ......

The scanner works

It is ridiculoulsly low quality for the $100 you pay for it
