Stunning print quality at a decent price places Canon Pixma MX870 on our highly recommended list

 

Good speed and a huge array of features, but it's the print quality that makes this such an attractive all-in-one

Will empty your wallet fast

 

This in the most inefficient printer I have ever used. It uses all ink tanks to print black text and fast - not the printing, the emptying of the cartridges. Not only does it go through ink fast it will not operate for long (if at all) with non canon...

Purchase price

Running costs are excessive
