Canon Pixma MP470

 

Canon's Pixma MP470 has its quirks, but given the $100 price (as of 9/12/07) it's hard to complain. This compact machine offers a wide range of print, copy, and scan functions in a decently designed package.

Easy setup ; detailed documentation, Lots of features for the price

Flimsy input and output trays, Navigation buttons hard to press

This MFP's low price includes full photo capabilities and a 1.8-inch LCD, as well as good scanning, copying, and printing features.

Canon PIXMA MP470 ( color )

 

Design The Canon Pixma MP470 uses the same basic design as the Pixma MP510 . The black-and-silver body measures 17.7 inches wide, 13.9 inches deep, and 6.7 inches tall. The silver scanner lid conceals an A4-size flatbed scanner. Because the MP470 lacks...

High-quality text and graphics prints and scans; fast graphics and photo prints; built-in memory card reader and PictBridge port; reasonable print costs; lots of special copy and photo print features; produces scannable proof sheet.

Slow text prints; photo quality needs improvement; can't use USB port to connect flash drives; scan-to-program feature is stunted; can't initiate transfer of photos from card to PC via control panel.

The Canon Pixma MP470 offers good print speeds, great text and graphics print quality, and useful features for a low price. This $100 multifunction printer trumps all of its budget competitors with printer quality; we highly recommend it for home users...

Canon PIXMA MP470 - multifunction printer ( color ) review

 

The $100 Canon Pixma MP470 is an entry-level inkjet all-in-one that produces high-quality prints at decent print speeds (though text prints are slow). Of all the $100 multifunctions we've tested, this one produced the best text and graphics prints. It...

The Pixma MP470's design shortcomings should be easy for many people to forgive, considering everything the MFP offers for the price. Its print, scan and copy functions are sound, and its software gives you lots of options.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

works great

 

No USB cord is included, so make sure you have one. Works with Windows 7, automatically installed and configured.

Does everything I wanted and a low price. Came with ink and sample photo paper

It's a bit wide, but this is actually nice for functionality -- you can scan legal size documents. Just make sure you have room

Ink included, photo paper included, new driver disc included

 

No way you can beat this deal. Prints fast, clear, and easily networked. Canon's product and support page are super easy. Scanner and copy functions work fast and clear. Have this setup in a chain of sports bars. Customers can leave reservations,...

One black ink and one color ink cartridge included. Photo paper included ; 39.99 with free shipping. Newegg is the best ; Great deal
