Canon Pixma MX340

 

The Canon Pixma MX340 color inkjet multifunction printer (with print, scan, copy, and fax capabilities) looks like a bargain ($100 as of June 1, 2010) until you factor in its pricey inks. If you don't print much, however, this machine offers just...

Wi-Fi connectivity ; Low purchase price

Color scans tend to be dark ; Black ink is expensive

Speed and print quality are decent, but the pricey black ink limits this unit to low-volume home use.

Canon Pixma MX340 Wireless Office All-In-One Printer

 

Although the Canon Pixma MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer ($99.99 direct) is limited in some ways—with a low paper capacity, no Ethernet connector, and relatively slow speed—it offers far more than you would probably expect for the price. The...

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes. Automatic document feeder. WiFi. Better-than-par output quality

Relatively slow. Relatively high cost for monochrome pages. Low paper capacity. No duplexer or Ethernet connector

The Canon Pixma MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer is best suited for a home office or as a shared printer for home and home office use.

Review: Canon Pixma MX340 multifunction device

 

Speed and print quality are decent, but the pricey black ink limits this multifunction device to low-volume home use.

The Pixma MX340’s two standout features are Wi-Fi connectivity, which requires a temporary USB connection during setup but is otherwise painless; and a 30-sheet automatic document feeder. The configuration also includes a letter-size flatbed scanner; a...

Ink can be expensive ; One line display ; Lengthy processing

Looking for a budget multi-function?

Cheap, well specified

Running costs are a touch high on this model too, but overall it's a fair if not spectacular performance from the Canon. You do get quite a lot of printer for your money and the fax and wireless capabilities are a useful addition too. The MX340 isn't...

Canon PIXMA MX340 - Inkjet All-in-One

 

A wireless inkjet printer aimed at small businesses and home office users.

Drivers for Windows and OS X come as standard and Canon includes a good support bundle, including OCR software and document management. A copy of Canon's web page print utility is also included.

Canon Pixma MX340 review

 

If you don't print much, however, the Canon Pixma MX340 offers just enough of everything else to enable a small or home office to get by.

The Canon Pixma MX340 does everything needed of an MFP, at a bare-bones level - and at a very low entry price. But if you do a lot of printing, you'll be better off in the long run with a model whose inks are more affordable.

Canon Pixma MX340 review

 

Canon has consistently impressed us with the quality of its recent MFPs, but they haven't had much appeal for the budget conscious, with most of current models priced at over £100.

The MX340 does everything, but its print costs make it unsuitable for high-volume printing.
