Canon Pixma MP280 Photo All-In-One Printer

 

The Canon Pixma MP280 Photo All-in-One Printer produces decent-quality output at a respectable speed and a cut-rate price.

Only $70. Good photo printing speed for its price. Solid output quality, especially for text and graphics. HD Photo Print

Connectivity limited to USB. Can?t print from memory cards, PictBridge-enabled cameras, or USB thumb drives. Rudimentary display.

Canon Pixma MP280

 

At just $70 (as of August 20, 2010), the Canon Pixma MP280 color inkjet multifunction printer (print/copy/scan) is priced to tempt budget-minded users. It offers impressive output quality, but its minimal features and higher-than-average ink costs mean...

Low purchase price ; Exceptional text and image output

Black ink is expensive ; Control panel can be hard to understand

The no-frills MP280 multifunction printer may fall short on features, but its speed and print quality are as good as you'll find on pricier models.

Canon Pixma MP280 Photo All-in-One Printer

 

The MP280 sticks to the basic all-in-one functions (printing, copying, and scanning). Its connectivity is limited to a wired USB connection to a computer, and it lacks any ports for printing from (or scanning to) other sources—memory cards, USB keys,...

For $70, you get in the Canon Pixma MP280 Photo All-in-One Printer a basic MFP that will produce decent output at a good speed for its price.

Review: Canon Pixma MP280 multifunction printer

 

Canon Pixma MP280 color inkjet multifunction printer is priced to tempt budget-minded users.

The Pixma MP280's speed is middling. On a PC, plain-text pages averaged 5.6 pages per minute, and photos came out at 1.5 ppm. Its text speed was identical on a Mac, but the higher-resolution photo we used in that test understandably took longer....

Canon PIXMA MP280

 

Despite its very different model number, this machine is basically a PIXMA MP495 with the wireless transceiver removed.

Canon Pixma MP280 review

 

Available in September 2010, the Canon Pixma MP280 offers impressive output quality, but its minimal features and higher-than-average ink costs mean that only low-volume users need apply.

The Canon Pixma MP280 has a price to please students or other monetarily challenged shoppers - and it produces output worth showing around. Just don't expect much from the features, or the ink pricing.

Canon PIXMA MP280

 

My latest look at a Canon multifunction device took in the company's budget entry model.

Although you would not want to use Fast mode for important documents, the print quality would be fine for editing purposes. Standard mode could be used for many tasks while High Quality could be reserved for really important correspondence

Canon MP280 All In One

 

This is an inkjet unit that is unlikely to be any smaller if it was only a printer. Yes, the scanner is only a flatbed, but I doubt anyone would use an inkjet to scan dozens of pages as the cost per page would make it uneconomic.

The rear paper tray will take around 100 sheets and the output tray (opens automatically) can store around half that figure

Canon - PIXMA MP280

 

It was only about nine months ago that we looked at the predecessor of the Canon PIXMA MP280 - the MP270 - and were genuinely impressed with the performance, features and quality of that extremely economical ...

The Canon PIXMA MP280 retains much of the appearance and many of the features of its predecessor, yet while it has increased print speeds overall, it has abandoned any PictBridge capability and shown a disappointing decline in photo quality.
