Canon Pixma MP830 Review

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

The ultra-versatile Canon PIXMA MP830 Office All-in-One does it all--print, scan, copy and fax—making it an ideal all-in-one for either your home or a small office.

With the large 2.5" LCD color viewer and easy control panel, you can evaluate and enhance images from your compatible memory card2 before printing. Or, you can bypass your computer and print directly from your PictBridge ready digital camera or DV camcorder. You can print a 4" x 6" photo-lab quality borderless print in up to 36 seconds.

PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One, PIXMA MP830 Print Head, Ink Tanks: PGI-5BK Pigment Black, CLI-8 (Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow), Power Cord, Telephone Line Cable, Easy Setup Instructions, Documentation Kit, Canon Photo Paper Pro for Borderless Printing 4" x 6" Sample Pack

CNET reviewed Canon Pixma MP830 :
The Canon Pixma MP830 is inexpensive for a multifunction printer that includes a fax machine, an ADF, a duplexer, and a media card reader. It's quick at scanning and printing. The MP830 is not networkable and its color graphics print quality leaves something to be desired. The Canon Pixma MP830 is a good option for a single home or office user who doesn't need high-quality graphics prints. If you need better graphics handling or networking, check out the HP OfficeJet 7410.

Boost your productivity by getting everyone printing, scanning, copying, and faxing, whether in crisp black and white or glowing color. This all-in-one's coolest feature is its built-in wireless networking. The functionality of the future is here, ready to transform your office life.

CNET Reviewed HP OfficeJet 7410 :

If you're willing to gamble on an all-in-one at double the price of its lesser-endowed peers, your bet is safe with the HP OfficeJet 7410 All-in-One. You'll shell out less dough for a smaller network-ready all-in-one such as the Brother MFC-420cn, but you'll reap fewer returns in functionality and fun than with the HP OfficeJet 7410. Like many low-cost all-in-ones, this pricier device will print, copy, and scan from digital-media cards and PictBridge slots and will send faxes through your PC's software. But the 7410 also prints on both sides of a page, makes legal-size scans and copies, connects to a wired or wireless network, and accepts a stack of pages to copy through its automatic document feeder (ADF).

Canon PIXMA MP800 Review

Monday, August 14, 2006

The advanced PIXMA MP800 Photo All-In-One delivers spectacular Print Copy-Scan performance. It produces an amazing resolution of up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi, for remarkable detail and clarity. To achieve this, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a nextgeneration 3,584-nozzle print head that ejects precise, consistent droplets as small as 1 picoliter. The result? Smoother, virtually grain-free images. Also, our ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system - four dye-based inks and a pigment-based black ink - produces true-life photos with a wide color palette, along with laser-quality text. What about speed? A 4"x 6" photo lab quality borderless photo takes approximately 36 seconds.

When copying, the AE (Auto Exposure) Copy feature automatically optimizes reproduction quality based on the type of original you're duplicating. The convenient Photo/Film buttons allow you to make reprints of your photos and 35mm film without using your computer. And now, scanning: The unit's higher-resolution CCD technology enables you to produce exceptional 2400-dpi scans, with vibrant 48-bit color depth. You can simultaneously scan up to 6 frames of 35mm film (negatives or positives), or up to 4 mounted slides. Plus, advanced paper handling features are built in - such as two paper trays and 2 sided printing.

Want to evaluate and enhance your images before printing? Just insert your compatible memory card into one of the built-in card slots, then select the images on the extra-large 3.5" LCD color viewer. As needed, images will automatically be enhanced for red eye, sharpness and brightness values. Or, you can fine tune the images yourself using the easy control panel. Then, print directly from the memory card! As an option, you can print directly from a PictBridge ready device such as a digital camera. This versatile printer is Bluetooth compatible, with our optional USB Bluetooth adapter. When using either wireless option, your images will automatically be enhanced for sharpness.

The Canon ChromaLife100 system combines the PIXMA MP800 Photo All-In-One's FINE print head technology and newly developed inks with select Canon photo papers, with results rivaling that of many conventional photos. And with the new smart LED ink tanks, your LED lamp flashes when ink is running low, and flashes even faster when nearing empty.

CNET reviewed Canon PIXMA MP800 :
The predecessor to the Canon Pixma MP800, the Canon Pixma MP760, won our Editors' Choice award. Prepare to pay a premium for this all-in-one that aims to serve artists and families itching to touch up those vacation photos gathering dust in the closet. The MP800 can scan six negatives and four slides at 2,400x4,800dpi, plus it includes a generous preview LCD, and it prints double-sided pages and photos. The price hasn't changed from that of the MP760, but the new MP800 costs $120 more than the rival Epson Stylus CX7800. Canon says its MP800 will print a lab-quality 4x6-inch photo in only 36 seconds.
