Canon PIXMA MP160 Reviews

Expertreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA MP160 and writes;
“Canon’s scan interface is almost as good as Epson’s and, apart from a loud motor during previews, the scanner performed well. It’s quite fast for such an affordable device and captured sharp, detailed images. Colours looked a little de-saturated and dark by default, but you can improve them using options in the interface.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCAdvisor reviews the Canon PIXMA MP160 and writes;
“The excellent scanning software will correct slanted documents and automatically crop images. MP Navigator also makes successful printing easy, using drop-down menus to select such options as paper type, lightness, darkness and the quality of prints.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA MP160 and writes;
“One of the very attractive features of this machine is its print quality. Not only are black text pages reasonably well reproduced – though there’s a little feathering – but colour graphics are clean, well delineated and not full of unsightly dither patterns. Although the colours in our test photocopy are slightly lighter than the originals, the quality is still very reasonable.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET reviews the Canon PIXMA MP160 and writes;
“The 4×6 test photos were quite good, as well. We liked the sharp detail and the vibrant colors in the photos, including in skin tones, though we did notice some graininess. Still, the quality more than suffices for snapshots.”

Canon PIXMA MP160 User Reviews

I love my Canon printer! | Rating: ★★★★★
“This is the first printer I have ever owned and it has been terrific. Good clear copies, reasonable speed, light and easy to handle. Makes me smile when I use it. Only catch is the price of the ink catridges. Friends told me Canon ink was cheaper to replace but that’s on the more expensive models.” – by Ann S.

“This printer has been wonderful since we purchased it. It prints very clearly and quickly. The ink is inexpensive compared to our last which was an Epson printer. Great price too! Thanks for the great product!” – by J. Busby

better than Lexmart, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I had a lexmart from walmart and it broke within a year. This cannon was rated high on line on cosumer reviews. I like it for the easy ink cartriges they are more solid and have more ink in them . Also printer seems to use less ink by printing out documents a little lighter (which saves ink).” – by DAVEO

Highly recommended printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I’m very pleased with the print quality and the ease of use. I also like that you can close the front and the back when not in use to keep dust from getting into the machine. The Easy Photo Print software is truly easy to use. This is a really good buy for the quality. I definitly recommend this printer. “ – by D. Martin-Morley

Pleasant surprise, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I bought this printer for basic home use (except photographic printing). I’m pleasantly surprised at the overall package and the cost of about $70. It seems like a very high value. Text and graphic printing are quite acceptable. It is a little noisier and slower than our last printer, but then again that one was a business printer. Delivery was quite fast.” – by Brien Palmer

Very Satisfied Customer! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I just love my new Canon All-in-One! I have used all it’s features and am very happy with all of them. The colors are so vivid and you can barely tell you are printing pictures from a home printer. Excellent printing quality! It is the perfect size and I like the digital read out for the page numbers and the way it animates when it is “thinking” Overall, this is a great product and I got it at a great price” – by Lizzie

Great for the price!, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“To be able to print very good photos, scan documents easily, and get sharply printed documents from ink jets (in color no less) for under a hundred bucks is amazing to me. My machine operates flawlessly. Con: Ink runs out rather quickly especially in color, so pick your must color docs wisely. Cartridges aren’t cheap.” – by C. O. Dickerson

No complaints., | Rating: ★★★★★
“I really have nothing bad to say about this printer. The scanner works quickly and provides excellent quality.
If you have GOOD photo printing paper, the pictures come out great. It prints quickly, and despite the fuss over the ink running out quick, hasn’t happened to me yet, and it has said LOW for a while now.”

Canon PIXMA MP160 Features

The Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Photo Printer lets you print, copy and scan photos and documents quickly and easily. Whether working from the home office, helping a child with his/her school project or simply printing out pictures from a family trip, Canon provides solutions that satisfies consumers’ preferences in look, feel, design and functionality. With a sleek, slanted design featuring rounded corners and a space-saving low profile, the stylish MP160 livens up any home or small business office. As more and more consumers begin to familiarize themselves with the benefits of a multi-function unit for the home, the demands go beyond just having the best technology. Ease of use and reliability have come to the forefront. The MP160 is designed to be extremely user friendly while delivering optimum results time and time again.

Fast, Reliable Home Printing
The MP160 is a system that lets you get more done, right at home. It allows you to print beautiful, long-lasting photos, along with copies that are truer to your originals’ images and text. The unique Z-Lid lets you produce clear, complete scans even of thick originals like personal notebooks. You can even print photos directly from a PictBridge compatible camera or DV camcorder — no computer required! With home-office AIO printers becoming everyday household items and digital photography’s popularity increasing by leaps and bounds, Canon has created a new generation of multi-function printers, like the MP160, that further link the photographic world to that of the home office. This multi-function unit harmonizes printing functionality and performance with imaging excellence and a sense of home decor/style, making it a great long term investment.

This four-color printer, with true-pigmented black and high intensity color inks, is ideal for printing text, web pages and photos. Affordable and cost-efficient, the MP160 offers resolution as high as 4800 by 1200 color dots per inch (dpi) and the ability to copy up to 22 pages per minute (ppm) in monochrome and 17 ppm in color. Borderless photo printing is equally fast: 4 x 6 inch photos print in less than a minute. For added convenience, the MP160 also allows for printing photos without a PC, thanks to the PictBridge port.

Sharp, Crisp Copying
The MP160 employs advanced copy technology to help give you vivid reproductions of original images and documents. Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology improves color accuracy by independently controlling brightness, hue, and other elements to make sure that there are minimal differences between the original and the copy. In addition, with Text and Image Separation Technology, the system can actually differentiate text from an image, making black text and fine lines darker and sharp. Now when black text appears over an image, the text on the following generations of copies can be virtually as clear as the first. These technologies plus hardware improvements in scanning and printing can help make a copy almost indistinguishable from the original.

Quick and Easy Scanning
Thanks to the MP160’s multiple capabilities, there’s no need to purchase a separate scanner that will take up extra space in your office. Instead, you can rely on this compact unit to scan with a high resolution of up to 600 by 1200 dpi (optical) and 19,200 by 19,200 dpi (interpolated). With a 48-bit internal color depth and the capability to deal with documents up to 8.5 x 11.7 inches, the MP160 will give you professional results in minutes.

ChromaLife100 Technology For Image Permanence
The MP160 uses the Canon ChromaLife100 system, including the FINE print head technology for great photo printing. When using select genuine Canon photo papers and inks, prints can resist fading for up to 100 years when stored in an archival quality photo album. The up to 100-year-lifespan rivals that of many traditional film based photos, long considered by consumers to be the benchmark for image permanence. Prints produced on Canon Photo Paper Pro with ChromaLife100-compatible inks have an up to 10-year gas fastness when exposed to open air. In addition, ChromaLife100 prints, when created using genuine Canon photo paper like Photo Paper Pro or Photo Paper Plus Glossy, have up to 30-year light fastness when displayed under glass.

FINE Engineering and the Inkjet Nozzle
Launched globally by Canon in 1999, the Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) advanced print head technology is one of the keys to the impressive speed and high photo quality in Canon PIXMA photo all-in-one printers. Canon FINE uses a groundbreaking high-performance multi-nozzle print engine that ejects consistent and microscopic ink droplets. The results are high-resolution photos with detail and clarity in less time.

The MP160 comes with a one-year limited warranty.
