Canon Pixma MX420 Printer Review
Canon  Pixma MX420 Printer Review

A step up in the range from the MX410 sits the new Canon Pixma MX420 multi-function printer that allows you to copy, scan, and fax. In comparison and addition to the cheaper model the MX420 offers a 6.2cm colour LCD screen (not touch screen), memory card slots including Compact Flash, and a wired Ethernet port. You can also connect to a PC/Mac via Bluetooth, WiFi, or a conventional USB cable. Cameras can be connected via the PictBridge port on the front of the machine.

The Canon Pixma MX420 produces crisp black text and decent photographs considering its reduced print head resolution compared to other more expensive Pixma models. Scanning speeds are also healthy. On the negative side there is only one paper tray which loads from the rear (100 sheet capacity) and no duplex double sided printing option.

The Canon Pixma MX420 uses the same cartridges as the MX410, the Canon PG-510 and CL-511 range of Inks. They do not contain very much ink and have built-on print heads resulting in higher replacement costs. PG-512 and CL-513 higher capacity versions are available which may be better to refill. The only compatible cartridges available are ones that have been refilled.

If you require an office machine with a fax that provides decent quality photographs then this budget offering could be for you. It is packed with features, but beware of the high ink replacement costs if you are a heavy user!
