Canon has come up with their best all in one printer for the offices called the Canon PIXMA MX7600 printer. However there are questions rose that does calling it an office printer make it the same, but Canon’s marketing potential have answered it yes. Therefore if you want to find out what exactly highlights this printer then they are its photos and graphics performance. The PIXMA MX7600 is basically an AIO printer which might not fit for the dual task of home and office printer.
This MX7600 functions as a standalone copier and fax machine and has the ability to fax, scan and print. The device can also scan to email according to the email program of your computer. Some of its office specific features apart from faxing are the in built duplexer to print on both sides of a page with duplexing ADF or automatic document feeder of nearly 35 pages, it can scan two sided pages and it can also easily connect to the network. Additionally some of its photocentric features are that it can print from PictBridge camera or from a memory card and it includes an excellent 1.8 inch colour LCD to preview images before printing.
Similar to other AIOs and Canon printers this MX7600 also offers a pair of paper trays. However unlike most this printer does not let you fill both the trays with the same quantity of papers. When you set the driver for plain paper the device would persist on using only a 150 sheet front tray. Again, if you set if for photo paper and the device would want to use the back tray, which is suitable for 10 letter sized photo sheets. However the office users would find its capacity of 150 sheets insufficient. However for the office and home users this 150 sheets capacity would last long enough. Additionally there are two trays which let you keep both loaded with photo and plain paper which means you don’t have to swap the papers when you switch between printing photos and documents.
Additionally this PIXMA MX7600 inkjet printer is relatively big compared to other AIOs with similar price range as it measures 10.1 x 19.7 by 21 inches which means you cannot share your desk with it. It is also a bit heavy but 36.6 pounds is still light enough for a person to move it around the office. However unlike other network setup programs the programs of Canon require you to place this printer near the system during installation so that you can connect it with a USB cable and also connect the printer to your desired network. When you have finished the installation you can disconnect the USB cable and move the printer to your desired place. The ink system of the printer is also different but in a good way. Apart from the usual cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges the printer also included two black inks with matte black for text and photo black for photos. The other or sixth cartridge is the clear ink cartridge.
