Canon Pixma MP970

 

The Canon Pixma MP970 is the 2007 refresh of last year's Pixma MP960. We were looking forward to a top-notch photo-oriented photo multifunction, as we've come to expect stellar quality from Canon, and we loved last year's version. Unfortunately, we...

Network-ready; auto duplexer; large LCD; control panel is easy to use and menus are well-thought-out; memory card slots and PictBridge port.

Task speeds are slower than the last generation's; print/scan quality is not up to Canon's usual standards and needs improvement across the board; USB port doesn't support hard drives or flash drives.

The Canon Pixma MP970 isn't up to the company's usually high standards. You're better off spending more for last year's version.

Canon PIXMA MP970 All-in-One

 

Canon's top multifunction inkjet pretty much covers all bases. Just don't ask about the duplexing.

So, the extra £85 you pay for the PIXMA MP970 over the PIXMA MP610 brings you a finer minimum drop size, a built-in transparency scanner, a bigger LCD screen, six-colour print and network connectivity. The machine is at the top of Canon's range and has...
