Canon PIXMA MP500 - multifunction printer ( color )

The Canon Pixma MP500 features excellent photo and text printing, built-in card readers and a PictBridge port, and individual ink tanks, including pigment-based black for text.

The Canon Pixma MP500's color scan quality is mediocre, and you have to buy your own USB cable.

Families and digital photo hobbyists should consider the well-designed Canon Pixma MP500 for prints, but we were disappointed by its mediocre color film scans.

Canon Pixma MP500

 

This general-purpose all-in-one printer offers fast speeds and high print quality.

The MP500 may lack some frills, but it delivers a great combination of performance, quality, and paper handling at a fair price.

The Canon Pixma MP500 is an attractively priced combination of printer, scanner, and media card reader. It's not ideal for every user: serious photographers may bemoan the lack of a film-scanning capability, while home-office workers may miss a...

Dual paper trays, built-in duplexer ; Produces dark text with crisp edges

Lacks faxing and an ADF ; No film-scanning

Scans of photos and line art earned high marks from our judges. Copies of a text document also scored well, but plain scans of the same file were less impressive. Many of the MP500's rivals outstrip its print speed of 6.4 pages--per minute for text,...

Canon PIXMA MP500 Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer (29 PPM, 9600x2400 DPI, Color, PC/Mac)

 

Artwork: Rick Rizner, Chris Manners

Dual paper trays, built-in duplexer ; Produces dark text with crisp edges

Lacks faxing and an ADF ; No film-scanning

Dual paper trays, a built-in duplexer, and strong text and photos make the MP500 good value even without fax capability.

Canon Pixma MP500

 

At 8.1- by 17.7- by 16.8-inches (HWD) and 21.1 pounds, finding desk space for the MP500 could be a challenge. Once you're past that hurdle, though, setup is typical for a Canon AIO. Install the print head and ink cartridges for each color, load paper,...

No automatic document feeder. No fax support

The Canon Pixma MP500 is strong on performance, particularly for business applications, and it offers surprisingly capable paper handling, with two 150-sheet paper trays and duplexing capability. Lack of a document feeder and fax support limits you to...

Canon Pixma MP500

 

The MP500 is easy to use and is a great machine if you want to do a variety of things such as make cards, print different photo sizes for frames or print labels onto CDs and DVDs.

Simple to set up and operate ; Good quality prints ; Reasonably fast print times ; Copying and scanning functions add flexibility

Printer cable not included ; Software takes some getting used to

Overall the MP500 is very simple to install and get started with printing out your memories. If you're after something easy to use and yet functional and adaptable to allow you to do a variety of things such as make cards, print different photo sizes...
