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.

Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-In-One Printer


If you need a good small office/home office all-in-one printer, the Canon PIXMA MX340 makes a very good choice. It's packed with features, and the performance specs are impressive. It meets or exceeds the specs for most of the competition, and you...

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...

Canon Pixma MX340 review


The dimensions of the MX340 are approximately 18 x 16 x 8 inches and it weighs 19 pounds

Good print quality ; Decent print speeds ; Front side USB ; Simple paper path

Ink can be expensive ; One line display ; Lengthy processing

Canon offers a one-year limited warranty with the Instant Exchange Program for the Canon Pixma MX340. Want additional piece of mind? Purchase the Canon CarePak Two-Year Extended Service Plan for $25

Canon Pixma MX340 All-in-One Printer


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Amazing printer, multi functional, wireless!!


Wireless connectivity and the ability to print from a multitude of devices is what I like about the Canon MX340. I picked it up online at Canon's refurbished products area for $40! By the way, you will need the free app called Canon Easy-PhotoPrint....

Low cost for a printer of this type and quality ; Wireless capability for all my devices ; Print Cartridges are half the cost of my old HP ; Amazing job of printing, faxing, scanning and copying ; Easy to use and set up

None I can think of

Really Nice Machine


I bought this machine about a month and just bought another one for my mom on Mother's Day. Her old printer-not even an all in one- ran out of ink and for less than the price of the replacement cartridges I was able to buy her this all-in-one, with the...

A cant beat it price, document feeder, easy set up, good print quality and speed for the price, nice aesthetic. For $69 at Walmart you get everything the average user needs from an all-in-one at an awesome price and a starter black and color ink cartridge

A little bulky and with the pop down door it requires even more space but not too much more than other machines. If you're looking for something compact then you'll want to pass on this machine

Love this printer-all in one!


Great printer for those who have had those cheapie printers that never work right. I upgraded from the little HP, and now I enjoy using the "print" button, not cringing when I select "print". Anyone looking for a great printer at a great price ($69.99...

Ease of set-up. Software is great, and lots of special functions that are easy to set up and use

None whatsoever . Nothing to complain about

Another Winner from Canon


This wireless, multifunction machine, at its price level ($79 at Fry's), is almost too good to be true. I use all functions except FAX in my home office and I've been delighted with the ease of wireless installation initially (about 10 minutes) as well...

Canon has delivered an inexpensive multifunction machine that has so many desirable features and is so easy to install that I'd like to recommend that every other manufacturer use Canon Corporation as a management guide

None since buying the machine back in July
