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...

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 Review and Ratings


If you're willing to sacrifice print speed and some usability for top-notch print quality, this $100 all-in-one inkjet is for you.

Excellent print quality ; Automatic document feeder ; Superior photo longevity

Non-backlit LCD ; Slow print speeds ; Higher-than-usual print costs ; Single color cartridge

Canon Pixma MX340 All-in-One Printer


The Canon inkjet MX340 handles scanning jobs quickly, and replacing paper is a cinch. However, there's a delay between copies and it's somewhat loud during use. Features include: document feeder, borderless printing, and Bluetooth.

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.

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.
