Canon Pixma MP980 review: Canon Pixma MP980

 

Canon Pixma MP980

Space-saving design; robust software; interactive LCD menu; dual-paper feeds; fast graphics and photo prints; auto-duplexer included.

Poor print quality; expensive; no fax machine; flimsy paper cassette; slow text output speed; unreliable wireless performance; unique gray ink can be hard to find.

The Canon Pixma MP980 multifunction printer, copier, and scanner are a step up from its predecessor, but the print quality isn't up to standard and it doesn't perform as quickly as the competition. The HP Photosmart Premium Fax all-in-one is a less...

Pixma MP980

 

Canon's Pixma MP980 color inkjet multifunction printer offers many premium-level features for photo enthusiasts. For its price ($300 as of 12/09/2008), it could be better in some ways, but it is, at least, progressive.

Intuitive control-panel design Dual input trays; automatic duplexing

Expensive; odd colorings on plain paper Rattletrap rear input-tray design

Ink costs are reasonable. The machine ships with standard-size cartridges: a 344-page pigment black (K), and 447-page photo gray, cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y). A replacement pigment black costs $13.99 (4.1 cents per page). The other colors...

Expensive; odd colorings on plain paper ; Rattletrap rear input-tray design

Photos are this higher-end model's forte, and it sports some generous and innovative features.

Canon Pixma MP980 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer

 

In some ways, the MP980 is a straightforward update to the MP970, sharing most of the same features. It can print, scan, copy, and e-mail—by opening a message on your PC and adding a scanned document as an attachment. It can both scan and print...

High-quality photos. Scans and prints from 35mm film. Network and Wi-Fi support. Built-in duplexer

No fax support. Clumsy network installation. Can't set network support to accept both wired and wireless connections

The Canon Pixma MP980 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer is a prime example of a photocentric all-in-one (AIO) that can also function as a standalone home photo lab.

Canon Pixma MP980

 

One of the driving factors in this type of device is the ability to handle the odd scanning job that you might have. The MP980 can turn out a quick scan of photos or documents, and work as a photocopy machine with multiple copies in black & white or...

Canon PIXMA MP980 All-in-One Printer

 

The array of Canon MP printers is astonishing. Sit down and make a list of exactly which features you want in an all-in-one device. We're confident you'll find a Canon MP that fits like a glove. So if the MP620 is too little and the MP980 too much,...

Having reviewed (and therefore lived with) several multifunction devices over the last year, we've come to expect a glitch here and there. A function not well implemented, a feature forgotten, quality that was good-enough but not great. The attraction...

Canon Pixma MP980 Printer Review

 

Canon's Pixma MP980 Printer is an upgraded version of MP 970. The MP 970 had the distinction of printing great-looking photos while being far less expensive than any of its competition. The MP980 shares some of the same features and carries on in that...

Canon Pixma MP980

 

Canon's all new all-in-one printer, the Canon Pixma MP980, is the replacement for their older model, the MP970, and it comes packed with features. It's definitely an all-in-one in the strict sense of the term, allowing you to print, scan, and copy...

Very impressive photo prints ; Scans/prints from 35mm film & slides ; Network support and built-in duplexer

No fax support ; Network configuration is quirky

Text printing was fairly decent, but not as impressive as with photo prints. If you print any font smaller than a 9-10-point font, distortion is apparent and causes some issues with readability. If you are printing regular documents for personal,...

Canon PIXMA MP980

 

The PIXMA MP980 multifunction can scan 35mm slides and film negatives, but it is very slow at printing.

Ethernet connectivity, automatic duplexing, film negative and 35mm slide scanning, good scan quality

Agonisingly slow print speeds, some print quality issues

Though the MP980 offers some decent features, its printing speeds and some quality issues make for a disappointing machine, particularly from Canon.
