Canon PIXMA MX885 review


It's not the cheapest MFP to buy or run, but if you don't mind the premium, the MX885 combines great looks, a great specification and great results

The MX885 uses five different ink cartridges, which produce great results but push printing costs up a bit

Canon Pixma MX885


Highly functional device at a low price. Wi-Fi, Ethernet or USB. Full duplexing.

Slow printing. Control interface looks and feels cheap.

Canon's small office multifunction is something of a bargain in the features stakes, although there are a few trade-offs in utility that make that possible.

Canon Pixma MX885 review


Canon's office line finally gets the half-touch, half-display interface of its consumer siblings – of a sort.

Don’t get us wrong: the MX885 is another excellent office all-in-one. But we’re finding it increasingly difficult to justify the cost of that quality.

Consumer review (

Bought it for the multifunctions it offered - scanner, fax, colour + b&w printer, but soon realised that the ink catridges run out much faster than expected. The replacement ink cartridges arent cheap neither and you have to buy original ones only...

Wireless scanning, quick printing, intuitive controls

Ink cartridges are expensive and dont last long at all.

Great Canon MX885 MFD


After owning two HP MFD's and then acquiring the CanonMX885 recently, I have to say that this machine is in a different class, easy to set-up, easy on-screen navigation,, high quality prints, scans & copies ( I am busy scanning a number of old photos)...

Great design, great paper trays, user friendly control panel, auto print-out opening door,

Good but not perfect


This is a very good printer and is perfect for small home office and family use. The double sided scanning, printing and copying works well (printing and copying double sided is a little slow to allow ink to dry before paper is fed back in). Printing...

fuctionality, single sided print speed, size, price.

menus and buttons could be better thought out
