Canon Pixma MP560 Wireless Photo All-In-One

 

When Canon uses the word photo in an MFP's name, as with the Canon Pixma MP560 Wireless Photo All-In-One ($149.99 direct), it's a strong hint that the printer it aimed primarily at home use. For the MP560, that translates to a printer with...

Prints, scans, copies, e-mails via PC. WiFi. High-quality output across the board. Ample paper capacity. Duplexer

No automatic document feeder. No Ethernet connector. No fax modem

The Canon Pixma MP560 Wireless Photo All-in-One lacks some important office-centric features, but can serve in the dual role of home and light-duty home-office MFP.

Canon Pixma MP560

 

The days of dropping 300 bones on an all-in-one printer are fading away, while $150 devices like the Canon Pixma MP560 are quickly taking their place on retail shelves. The MP560 looks great and offers useful features like an auto-document feeder and a...

Intuitive scroll wheel; large 2-inch LCD for photo viewing; wireless; auto-duplexer included; dual paper trays.

Mediocre print speeds; competition offers better image quality for less.

The Canon Pixma MP560 multifunction printer and its flashy 2-inch LCD screen and auto-document feeder may seem appealing at first, but the average consumer will find that Lexmark's Impact S305 offers faster performance and higher quality results for...

The Canon Pixma MP560 Wireless Photo All-in-One color inkjet multifunction printer is priced to appeal to students and home users ($150 as of November 24, 2009). Compared with the like-priced Epson Stylus NX515 and HP Photosmart Plus, it offers better...

Very nice photo quality ; Automatic duplexing and roomy paper trays ; Fast scanning speeds

Mediocre print speeds

For a reasonable price, you get automatic duplexing and dual 150-sheet input trays, but the trade-off is mediocre print speed.

Canon Pixma MP560

 

The Canon Pixma MP560 is a wireless all-in-one printer that offers both printing and scanning, but no fax capability. It offers cheaper ink costs and better paper handling than other similar products. Having wireless built-in is a huge advantage and...

Wireless & Bluetooth printing ; Automatic duplexing ; Cheap ink replacement costs

Slightly slower print speeds ; Scanning quality is so-so

Replacement black ink cartridges cost around $15 and the color cartridges cost about $12 each, which is relatively cheaper than other similar models.

Canon Pixma MP560 review

 

To connect the printer to a computer, users will decide if they plan on using the Pixma MP560 over a wireless network or through the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connection. I set up our review unit over our wireless network and I found it to be fairly simple. ...

Stylish, compact design ; Excellent photo/text quality ; Easy wireless setup ; Low energy consumption

Slow print speeds ; Low paper capacity

However, if you are looking for a home office machine that prints quickly and efficiently, the Pixma MP560 might not be it. It prints an average of about 8 ppm and the paper tray can only hold about 80 pages

Canon PIXMA MP560 inkjet multifunction

 

Canon's PIXMA MP560 is a simple inkjet multifunction that offers sufficient print quality for both documents and family photos. USB and Wi-Fi connecti...

Great quality documents and photos, easy to use

No CD/DVD printing, LCD screen too small

The mid-range Canon PIXMA MP560 inkjet multifunction printer isn't feature-packed but it can print high quality documents and photos, and the integrated Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect and control wirelessly.

Canon PIXMA MP560 - Inkjet All-In-One

 

A multifunction, wireless-enabled printer that also offers duplex printing - if you're prepared to wait.

Good print quality ; Wireless support ; Comprehensive controls

Sluggish duplex printing ; Some shadow detail lost ; Average print speed

Drivers are provided for Windows and OS X, though there's no stated support for Linux. Canon provides a good software bundle with the printer, which includes OCR software to support the scanner and WebPrint EX for easy print of web pages.

The Canon Pixma MP560 is a great-looking printer with plenty of features to suit the more demanding home user. Its text and photo output won't disappoint, and neither will its wireless-networking capability, built-in double-sided printing or price,...

Good output quality ; Hardware-based controls

Not particularly speedy

Conclusion The Canon Pixma MP560 is a feature-packed all-in-one printer. The only thing it's missing is a fax. It's no slouch when it comes to maintaining high standards either, producing some truly impressive results in our tests. Despite this, Canon...

The Canon PIXMA MP560 inkjet multifunction can print directly from supported memory cards (SD, MemoryStick, MemoryStick Duo and CompactFlash) as well as USB flash drives and PictBridge-capable digital cameras. Unfortunately, the recessed USB port won't...

If you don't need the PIXMA MP640's CD/DVD printing, Ethernet port or automatic duplexing, the Canon PIXMA MP560 gives you high quality documents and photos for an inexpensive purchase price.
