Canon PIXMA MP640 -- Faster But Still AffordableBy MIKE PASINIEditorThe Imaging Resource Digital Photography NewsletterReview Date: January 2010It's just a little bigger than the MP620 we called "quite a deal" in our review a year ago, but Canon claims...

Our review of the MP620 complained that it lacked film scanning, high fidelity printing and duplex printing. The MP640 brings duplex printing to the entry-level multifunction PIXMA printer but there's still no film scanning. We're less concerned than...

Canon Pixma MP640 review


When in use with the rear tray open, the output tray extended, and the control panel flipped up, the Pixma MP640's dimensions are approximately 18 x 25 x 12 inches. Factor in the scanner lid when opened and the space needed for the printer is about 18...

Excellent image quality ; Ease of use ; Low energy consumption

Print pauses during jobs ; Can't print documents from USB

Canon supplies compatible with the MP640 are also available through the Canon Direct Store. Each dye-based tank retails for $12.99; the pigment-based tank is $14.99. The 4-color value pack retails for $47.99 while the three cartridge pigment-based...

Canon PIXMA MP640 inkjet multifunction


Canon's hero multifunction gains Ethernet, Wi-Fi and a bigger LCD

Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, easy to use, great print quality, can print photos directly from USB flash drives

Can't print documents from flash drives, some print quality issues with small text, compatibility issues with Mac OS X Snow Leopard

Canon's PIXMA MP640 inkjet multifunction offers network connectivity, a sizeable colour LCD and USB flash drive support. It's not a fast printer, but you can expect the same excellent print quality you get from other Canon inkjets.

Canon Pixma MP640 review


Canon's feature-packed Pixma MP640 has both wired and wireless networking, memory card slots, a CD-printing tray, two 150-sheet paper trays and an automatic duplexer.

This feature-packed multifunction device delivers on all fronts, and is an excellent choice for families with multiple PCs.

Lab Test: Canon Pixma MP640


Installation was straightforward using Snow Leopard's default drivers although we did encounter one hassle. Our test system had Parallels installed and the network connections it established interfered with printer detection of the network. Once we...

Easy setup; excellent print quality

No sheet feeder option

Scanning over a network connection was straightforward using Image Capture and Preview. It’s also possible to initiate scanning at the MP640 and then direct the output to a computer on the network, although this required installation of Canon’s...

Canon Pixma MP640


This high-end wireless Canon printer lets you print photos straight from a memory card, camera or mobile phone without having to fiddle with a PC. It has Wi-Fi, Ethernet connectivity for use with wired Internet connections, Bluetooth and a print...

The MP640 is by no means perfect, but that's forgiveable considering just how high it's aiming. Like most Pixmas, however, it does all the important things well, and does nothing badly, which is a good start. If you can justify spending this much on a...

Fantastic Printer


In order to print Cd/DVD's you need to update the firmware and buy a CD tray from the net.

Outstanding service from Newegg (as usual). This printer does everything. Top feed, cassette feed, Prints CD/DVD's (after firmware update), duplex print. It's fast to scan and fast printing

Ink cartriges are a little on the small side but I have a chip resetter and will be refilling so that doesn't matter much
