Canon has an impressive track record with its ink jet all-in-ones (AIOs), with more Editors' Choice awards in the various ink jet AIO categories over the past several years than any other company. At this point, I approach every new Canon AIO with high...

Fast performance. Automatic document feeder. Network connector. Standalone copier and fax

Unusual approach to network setup. Full-page graphics tend to make plain paper curl

Equally capable at home and office tasks, the Canon Pixma MX850 is a good fit for the home or small office, or in the dual role of home and home-office all-in-one.

Review: Canon PIXMA MX850 Office All-In-One Printer

 

All-In-One office printers have slowly been evolving to incorporate new features, better print, scan speed and quality. Canons latest entry is the PIXMA MX850 and it is no different. The MX850 boasts both faster print speed and higher quality color...

Review: Canon Pixma MX850 multifunction printer

 

The Pixma MX850 is Canon's all-in-one scanner, copier, fax machine, and ink-jet printer built for the small office or home office. The MX850 prints impressively crisp, legible text that's comparable to laser quality. Add to that speedy performance,...

The MX850 is a bit bulky, at 31 pounds, but it sets up in a snap. The printer uses a five-color ink system, which includes the four traditional dye-based colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) and a special pigment-based black to achieve exceptional...

The MX850 had its ups in the tray, menu and fax departments. Canon offers dual input trays with the MX850 and also three choices on how you'd prefer to use them, which makes it easy to switch from one paper type to another. The navigation on the unit...

Overall, the Canon MX850 had only lackluster photo print quality, but it had decent speed and did a decent job on printing to plain paper. And while it has a great selection of features, it's a tad pricey for its performance results and in comparison...

Canon Pixma MX850

 

The Canon MX850 is an all-in-one device, capable of copying, printing from memory card and PC, faxing and scanning.

For the hefty price mark and size of the Canon MX850, we had hoped it would live up to a higher standard, or at least to its price point. However, it didn't quite justify its cost.

Awkward setup ; Slightly expensive running costs ; Below average photo printing

Excellent print quality and speed

Scanner quality isn't great

Canon touts the Canon Pixma MX850 as a multifunction powerhouse, and it's worthy of such a description. On top of being fast, easy to use, and excellent at outputting documents and photos, the MX850 includes features such as a duplexer and an automatic...

Can this SOHO targeted multifunction printer match its consumer photo printer cousins?

There are two, multi-format memory card slots behind a cover on the right-hand side of the front panel, with a PictBridge socket below these. The printer can also handle direct CD/DVD print; just flip down an internal cover and slide in the supplied...

Product Specifications

This is an all-in-one powerhouse. Thanks to its patented print head technology and 5-color ink system, you'll create spectacular photos with 9600 x 2400 color dpi resolution1, and fast: a photo lab quality 4" x 6" borderless print takes only about 21 seconds. Copies will be remarkably true to the originals, and when scanning photos you'll produce impressive 4800-dpi results, with vibrant 48-bit color depth. The built-in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) holds up to 35 originals and enables automatic duplexing, so you do not have to wait, and then manually turn over your 2-sided original. This versatile machine is networkable via an Ethernet connection. You can also print photos right from memory cards - selecting and enhancing images on the high-resolution 2.5" color TFT display - or directly from a digital camera.
