Canon at its best!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon MP530 Multi function Printer (Electronics)
This compact multifunctional has everything (except a USB cable - remember to include a USB 2.0 Device Cable with your order)!
Build quality is excellent and extremely compact - you don't need the sticky-up bit at the back other than as a one-off bypass feeder so it looks neat too.
Despite the daunting diagramatic instructions, it's easy to set up.
Its single-ink system consumption is positively frugal (better than some of Canon's standalone printers).
Printing is quick for an inkjet and very good quality; it's so convenient having an all-in-one for copying and scanning even if you're not likely to use the fax very often.
Good for the money, too. A very nice machine to own.
PS One year on: Canon have confirmed that the printer will use a little ink cleaning the nozzles every time it's switched on. I've been turning it off as I don't use it that often these days; leaving it on standby avoids this constant cleaning. It's your choice depending on how often you print. By the way, at Amazon's price, £74 less than it was in Dec06, it's an absolute bargain!
