The FINE print head with ink droplets as small as 2pl and a maximum resolution of 4800dpi ensure high quality prints with fine detail. The hybrid ink system with ChromaLife100+ ensures long lasting vivid colour images and crisp text.
Save money on ink
Print more for less with the cost-effective, high yield PG-512 and CL-513 cartridges. They provide significantly more prints than the standard equivalent, so there are longer periods between ink replacements, which is ideal if you print frequently.
My Image Garden
Experience the full creative potential of your PIXMA with this single toolbox for easy photo printing, scanning and access to online services. Its photo organising capabilities, including face recognition, enable you to discover long forgotten photos left on your PC and create attractive new designs for printing.
New advanced features include Automatic Suggestion, which searches your PC for stored images and displays forgotten photos on the desktop via a slideshow. The images can then be edited and printed through My Image Garden. Automatic Layout uses image assorting technology to recognise images and automatically recommend the optimum layout for print. Face recognition software also detects faces in photos and automatically groups images together, making it easy to locate shots of particular friends and family.

So, just looking for a budget but by no means inferior multifunction printer I spotted this one. Cannon Pixma has always had a pretty good name and after checking the specs out, thought I'd give it a go!
Before I go any further, after reading many comments on here saying there was no ink carts. . . there definitely was in this one! They were in a cardboard box along with the power cord. They are only testers that you may get 200 pages of print out of so you will need to buy another colour and another black cartridge. After shopping around, the inks are as cheap on Amazon as anywhere else so I've bought one of each myself.
In the box you get the printer, power cord, one colour ink cart, one black ink cart, set up cd rom and instructional booklet.
*There is no printer to computer cable in here at all* you will have to buy one separately. I've never seen a cable come with a printer, they don't.
The MP230 can print, scan and copy. Much smaller and lighter than previous ones we've owned but not cheapo/plasticky feeling. The paper input tray at the back flips down onto the printer to stop dust getting into it when not in use. The scanner lid has a bit of give on the hinges so if you wanted to for instance copy a magazine page the lid will still close over well although there's a thick-ish item inside. There is no capture tray for your printed copies as they roll out. You would have to put some sort of catch tray there or do what I do and just put a magazine or something just over a pages length from where they come out so they are dropped onto there. To access the printer cartridges for changing, you have to lift the actual scanner bed up.Read more ›
Setting up from CD fairly simple and manual very comprehensive. Instructions easy to follow and printing is very rapid compared with old model. The All-in One saves space and seems good value for money. The supplied ink cartridges are for setting up and testing only, so extra black and colour ( usually sold as twin pack ) will be needed.
I purchased this as I had no choice but I would say, if you want a good photo printer, you will have to pay a lot more, but most importantly...always read reviews before buying anything!
I would recommend as a good cheap all in one unit.

Used every day since bought; good colour reproduction; heads need aligning several times which uses a lot of ink but it's very easy to usePublished 2 months ago by Di
It's noisy, it clatters and the ink runs out very quickly. Worse, if you think you can save money by only printing in black and white, you can't. Read morePublished 2 months ago by IXUS
