Canon Canon PIXMA MP510 Color Flatbed All-in-One

 

Canon's Pixma MP510 is an affordable combination of printer, scanner, and media card reader. The $150 (as of 10/25/2006) model lacks the frills that come with many multifunction printers, such as film scanning and faxing, but you can get the basics...

Low price, dual paper trays ; Top-quality photo prints

Small LCD ; Limited in-printer editing

This basic multifunction printer has dual paper trays and produces high-quality photos, but its color LCD is small.

Review: Canon's new Pixma MP510 all-in-one is the 2006 refresh of the Pixma MP500, which performed quite well in CNET Labs. Generally, we see quality and technology improvements with each iteration of a product, but that's not exactly what happened...

Very inexpensive; allows for manual control of photo enhancement; built-in IrDA; lots of layout options; decent print speeds; good graphics and photo print quality

Text and scan quality should be improved; can't use PictBridge port as a USB port for external storage devices; lacks a feature to automatically save contents of a memory card to a PC; lacks dye-based black ink

The Canon Pixma MP510 is a middle-of-the-road photo all-in-one, but we like what you get for the price.

Consumer review by:

Cannot scan if you are out of ink. Do not buy.

 

When ANY of the four ink cartridges are empty, all functions are disabled. You are not allowed to use the scanner if any single cartridge is empty. I cannot think of a more retarded feature... this is a complete, utter, and absolute failure on Canon's...

For the most part, a very decent printer. Good print quality, speed, etc. for the price. But everything positive thing about it is completely negated by one thing

When ANY of the four ink cartridges are empty, all functionality is disabled ; Scanner will not work unless all ink tanks are at acceptable levels

The MP510 is well worth the price!

 

For someone who wants a quality all-in-one printer at a good price the MP510 fits the bill. On a scale of 10.0 I rate it 9.9!

It has all the functions a home user will want

Nothing obvious
