Canon PIXMA MP970 All-in-One

 

Canon's top multifunction inkjet pretty much covers all bases. Just don't ask about the duplexing.

So, the extra £85 you pay for the PIXMA MP970 over the PIXMA MP610 brings you a finer minimum drop size, a built-in transparency scanner, a bigger LCD screen, six-colour print and network connectivity. The machine is at the top of Canon's range and has...

Canon PIXMA MP970 review

 

A top of the range printer from Canon, but is it worth its high asking price?

Scanner ; Direct print functions

Expensive ; Average photos

The MP970 is very expensive to buy for an A4 printer and its extra colour space is only slightly noticeable in most prints. This makes it only really worth the money if you need the scanner and other direct print facilities.

The Canon Pixma MP970 is the flagship model in Canon's range of Pixma printers, coming in at almost £250. However, its speed, quality and versatility make it a good choice for home users or small businesses that need to do a lot of photo printing and...

So while the Canon Pixma MP970 is more expensive than most of its rivals, its sheer performance, quality and range of features make it a good choice for more demanding home and small business users.

Canon - PIXMA MP970

 

The success of any all-in-one printer is ultimately judged by the speed, quality and efficiency of its separate parts and Canon has gone all-out to enhance the copying, printing and scanning performance of the PIXMA MP970, ...

Despite upgrading its excellent software, providing simple to use menus and processes and operating at high speeds, the disappointing colour results when scanning leave this all-in-one sadly trailing behind the opposition.

Canon Pixma MP970

 

This is quite a beefy All In One unit, so it scans, copies and prints via the PC. It can also copy when not connected to the PC and it also prints directly from a range of card media.
