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...

Canon Pixma MP560

 

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 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer

 

The PIXMA MP560 is a good value if you're in the market for a full-featured all-in-one printer. It's easily networked, and equally at home whether printing photos or documents or scanning and copying. Performance is above average in this price range,...

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

Consumer review by:

"Just up and died"

 

This printer was fabulous until it just died one day! It literally just stopped working. Got a b200 error that said call the manufacturer. They never contacted me back. Done with Canon.

Had no issues with the printing, except the cost of the ink, until it died.

B200 error; just stopped working.

"Not smart. Tears through ink (surprise surprise)"

 

It's stupid. Wastes ink (on purpose) and screws up your printing jobs. For example, I was printing a 25 page document, which was very important and time sensitive, BUT it stopped printing without 3 pages left to go (it prints backwards for some...

Cheap, does a few different things. Wireless is helpful.
