Canon Pixma MP470

Canon Pixma MP470 – has its peculiarities, but provided the $149 cost it’s tough to whine. This portable device provides a wide variety of print, copy and check features in a halfway decent developed package.

driver-canon.com – The software package includes a set of helpful, well-designed applications for editing and enhancing photos and also dealing with checked photos. Canon’s Remedy Menu dialogue box gives you one-touch accessibility to the printer’s on-screen documents, upkeep utilities, and also assist files. A My Printer applet mounts itself in your Windows system tray as well as provides the printer line, settings, and troubleshooting information.

Canon Pixma MP470 performed adequately in our tests. It refined plain-text pages at a qualified 8.7 web pages per minute (ppm). The deeply black, slightly unclear text was absolutely understandable, although curved typefaces looked feathery and carefully spaced kind seemed mushy. Graphics took longer to print– 1.5 ppm to 4ppm, regarding average total– and also looked respectable on simple paper (brief on information, a little faded) yet terrific on more expensive Canon paper (intense, crisp). The gadget scans and copies promptly, and also the duplicates in particular looked fairly great. Ink price each page (at 5 percent protection per colour) is reasonable: about 13 cents for black-only, or 26 cents for a web page with all three colours plus black.

The Pixma MP470 streamlined, black-and-silver cabinetry exhibits an attention to exterior design that fails to reach all the components had within. The input and result trays, which unravel for use, rattle a great deal and bend conveniently. Superficial slots leading toward the cartridge bays do nothing to aid you place a new cartridge correctly for attachment.
