Canon Pixma MX860 Office All-in-One Printer

 

It's not the most compact wireless all-in-one, but Canon's print quality and quiet performance make it a winner.

Excellent photo quality ; Relatively quiet ; Competitive ink cartridge pricing

Relatively complicated setup and UI ; Staid design ; Mediocre speeds

If you can live with the Canon Pixma MX860’s conservative, bulky design and slightly complicated setup, you’ll find it offers decent document printing speeds over Wi-Fi, as well as the best quality of any If you can live with the Canon Pixma MX860’s...

Canon Pixma MX860

 

Canon's Pixma MX860 color inkjet multifunction printer is a nicely equipped, moderately priced ($200 as of May 5, 2009) machine that would serve a small office well. Its older cousin, the Canon Pixma MX700, is faster and a little cheaper, but has fewer...

Roomy paper trays; fast, capable scanner ; Automatic duplexer; Wi-Fi connectivity

Average to slow print speeds ; Printed photos suffer on plain paper

You get nice print quality plus Wi-Fi and automatic duplexing, but speed is just average overall.

Canon Pixma MX860 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer

 

Despite its name, the Canon Pixma MX860 Wireless Office All-In-One ($199.99 direct) isn't all that tightly focused on office use. Granted, it can serve reasonably well as a shared all-in-one (AIO) in a micro office or as a personal AIO in any size...

Reasonably high quality output. Prints, scans, and faxes over network. Standalone copier and fax

Relatively slow. Cumbersome network setup

The Canon Pixma MX860 Wireless Office All-In-One Printer offers high quality output and lots of functions, but is relatively slow for business applications.

Canon Pixma MX860 Multifunction Color Inkjet Printer

 

This somewhat pedestrian multifunction printer is easy to use and has all the right functions and features, but it's a painfully slow performer and can be tedious to set up.

Versatile interfaces; very easy to use; dual paper feeders; built-in duplexer

Slow performance; annoying setup; limited-capacity ink cartridges

Evaluated as an AIO device, the Canon Pixma MX860 has everything it's supposed to have, and it does everything it's supposed to do. But it doesn't best the competition in performance, print or image quality, or even cost per page

Expert review by:

A somewhat slow Canon inkjet multifunction printer that offers Ethernet, Wi-Fi and automatic duplex.

 

It prints slowly and doesn't have the largest paper trays, but Canon's PIXMA MX860 inkjet multifunction printer offers a lot of features for its price. It also offers excellent print quality.

Comprehensive connectivity, good colour quality, commendable scan detail, automatic duplex

Slow print speeds, paltry media capacity

Large 64mm LCD display ; Built-in memory-card reader ; Stylish design ; Robust software suite ; Fast output

Output quality could occasionally be better

We do, however, have a complaint about graphics printed on plain paper. While the details are all sharp, we noticed some blotches in pictures with multiple colour transitions. The result is a series of white specks spread across the image. These flaws...
