Pixma MX410 Printer Review
There are so many new printer models currently being released and competition is fierce in the current depressed market-place. In order to gain market share manufacturers are adding more features and the latest technology to woo buyers.
The New Pixma MX410 looks great in Canon's now familiar black shiny plastic finish. Canon has worked hard on the styling of their latest MX models with the roof-like shape which houses the control panel buttons and LCD screen. Blue LED's have been cleverly used to give the models a space-age feel which fits well with the new designs.
Amongst the features included are Wi-Fi, Fax, 4800x1200 dpi print resolution, a 30 sheet automatic document feeder, flatbed scanner including scan to USB function. All this for less than £99!
When we take a closer look at the specification we note the missing media card reader, colour LCD screen, and the slow print speeds. Like other budget Canon printers the print heads are built on to the cartridges which mean that you are buying a new print head each time. This pushes up the price of replacement Ink and we feel it a shame that such technology is used only once, unless you refill! Fortunately dedicated refill kits are available for the Canon PG-510 and CL-511 model of cartridges. Although refilling is not for everyone, it is highly recommend in this case due to the small volumes of ink inside the cartridges.
It seems silly to us that you would intentionally buy a printer and have to refill the cartridges. That is unless special refillable cartridges were available that made the job easy, which they are not because of the built-on print head. For this reason we cannot recommend this printer unless you are a light to moderate user who is happy to buy a new print head each time! Even then there are better options available from Brother, except maybe they do not look so sexy!
