Canon PIXMA MP980

 

The PIXMA MP980 multifunction can scan 35mm slides and film negatives, but it is very slow at printing.

Ethernet connectivity, automatic duplexing, film negative and 35mm slide scanning, good scan quality

Agonisingly slow print speeds, some print quality issues

Though the MP980 offers some decent features, its printing speeds and some quality issues make for a disappointing machine, particularly from Canon.

Canon Pixma MP980

 

The Canon Pixma MP980 multifunction printer, copier, and scanner is a step up from its predecessor, but the print quality isn't up to standard and it doesn't perform as quickly as the competition.

Space-saving design ; Robust software ; Interactive LCD menu ; Dual-paper feeds ; Fast graphics and photo prints ; Auto-duplexer included

Poor print quality ; Expensive ; No fax machine ; Flimsy paper cassette ; Slow text output speed ; Unreliable wireless performance ; Unique grey ink can be hard to find

Canon offers a standard one-year warranty. Canon's standard online support options include downloadable drivers and software, manuals, and FAQs.

Canon Pixma MP980

 

Please help me. I want to scan and insert word documents, tables and figures, for my thesis in Geology. Other websites say there is a problem with doing this RE : the quality of the figures and tables, when printed in word documents. I would appreciate...

Canon Pixma MP980

 

The fact that this is product falls in the "multi-purpose" category should not deter the demanding user. It is flexible, versatile and efficient in all functions.

It performs superbly in all functions. Excellent color management in printing, while the film scanning function, both for positive and negative film is very efficient. A cost-effective winner

None so far

Canon MP980 Printer

 

Excellent printer with wide capabilities. It suits us to a tee for our home/home office. We have had it for over 3 years and it is still working fine with not one problem. Great high quality printing + photocopying and photos crisp. Has multicard...

top quality print, multifunctional, reliable and robust

Ink consumption seems a little higher than previous printer (?needed for higher quality print)

Worst printer I have experienced!

 

Having owned a previous PIXMA which I was very happy with I had no hesitation in purchasing the 980. BUT the printer inks are the problem. 1. The ink tanks are 1/2 the size of the previous Pixma I owned. 2. The machine has a regular tank cleaning cycle...

The features.

Expensive inks that drain without even colour printing. Printer useless if ink tank issue

High Quality and Fun to use

 

Canon is finally waking up to themselves and coming out with a new range of printers. Overall you get what you pay for and this in conjunction with a CISS is un-stoppable.... That is, untill it 'Prepares for Print'. There is WAY too much preperation...

High Quality Prints, Customisable

Good

 

Many reviews mark the MP980 as a slow printer - it can be slow to start but for home use it's perfectly reasonable. It's features - wireless/network printing and scanning, CD/DVD printing, slide/negative scanner, duplex printing - (all of which I use)...

Comprehensive feature set - wireless/network printing and scanning, CD/DVD printing, slide/negative scanner, duplex printing. All these features work well.

Can be slow to start printing (after turning on). A bit pricey.
