Canon Pixma MP470 Reviews

Goodgearguide reviews the Canon Pixma MP470 and writes;
“The device scans and copies quickly, and the copies in particular looked quite good. Ink cost per page (at 5 per cent coverage per colour) is reasonable: about 13 cents for black-only, or 26 cents for a page with all three colours plus black. “
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCAdvisor reviews the Canon Pixma MP470 and writes;
“Graphics took longer to print – 1.5ppm to 4ppm, about average overall – and looked decent on plain paper (short on detail, a little faded) but great on costlier Canon paper (bright, crisp). The device scans and copies quickly, and the copies in particular looked quite good. Ink cost per page (at 5 percent coverage per colour) is reasonable. “
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCWorld reviews the Canon Pixma MP470 and writes;
“The Pixma MP470 performed satisfactorily in our tests. It processed plain-text pages at a competent 8.7 pages per minute (ppm). The deeply black, slightly fuzzy text was certainly readable, although curvy fonts looked feathery and closely spaced type seemed mushy. Graphics took longer to print–1.5 ppm to 4 ppm, about average overall–and looked decent on plain paper (short on detail, a little faded) but great on costlier Canon paper (bright, crisp).”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Reviews.cnet reviews the Canon Pixma MP470 and writes;
“Print quality is where the Pixma MP470 (and Canons in general) really stood out. The text print was dark, sharp, clean, and legible down to very small point sizes. Very close inspection revealed some minor jagged edges, but you really have to be looking for the errors to find them. The graphics print was likewise sharp and detailed. Colors were true and gradients were smooth. We were also pleased by the color saturation.”

Canon Pixma MP470 User Reviews

I’ve been wanting this for some time., | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Well, I’ve used this machine long before I bought it so I come from a bias position. I like the software, It’s fast, easy to learn and use. I use it for general office projects but it prints photos clearer and truer than my previous printers. For casual photo printing it’s great.” – by Willie Palmer III

Canon Pixma MP470 excellent printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“So far this is excellent value for the money. Super easy to install, read instructions once thru before installing. I have only printed & copied so far & quality is really good for at home general use. I have had no problems/complaints so far, would definitely recommend. “ – by Experienced Shopper

A Must have, | Rating: ★★★★★
“The photo quality is excelent is beyond what you would expect in a photo smart printer, many settings for size, height and width.I canot say enough about this printer except it’s AWSOME! and the pictures come out have the option of copying in black and white only or color whichever you prefere,
Great for the price as well. “
– by Donna Mlady

This might be THE one, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“It was amazingly easy to install, and I am not good with hardware. You do need to connect it with a usb printer cord as suggested as an additional purchase when you order the device. Ink installation was also very easy. The documents print FAST, and both color and b/w are crisp. Scanned documents came out fine.” – by TravelMod

Great Printer for the price!, | Rating: ★★★★★
“It is a great printer for our home office! And the price is good too. We used to have a Canon MP600, but it used several separate inks and they were very touchy! Many times we had to replace the inks not because the printer was bad, but because it didn’t recognize that cartridge.” – by Keenie

An excellent inexpensive home copier/scanner/printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“The print quality is actually pretty good. I find the scanner a bit pokey to use, but it works. It is a tad on the loud side, and not terribly fast. I could not care less about these points for my usage, but as part of an especially busy home business, there might be better options. But for a cheap scanner/copier/printer, I am thrilled. “ – by Daniel

Great!, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I used it quite frequently, making black and white scanned copies (2-4 pages) from my workbook everyday, and a few times, printed out a bunch of papers for midterm and final practices. It did its job and printed out fast. The quality of the copies were good too! People thought I was using the actual workbook pages (I wanted to save the pages in the book, which is why I scanned and printed it). “ – by Chewy

Very well balanced, Works great!, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This printer has done so much for me. I’ve printed photographs, documents, iron-on t-shirt designs and everything has looked great! It prints fairly quickly as well. The scanner has been great for scanning documents into adobe documents, or even old photos to do some touch ups. For an all in one, it’s a great thing to have.” – by Brian K. Klein

Canon Pixma MP470 Features

The Canon Pixma MP470 is a versatile, all-in-one unit that lets you quickly print beautiful photos and laser-quality text at home. Compact and easy to use, the MP470 delivers results that are truer to your originals, plus it scans photos or forms, even thick notebooks, with ease. This unit also lets you print directly from memory cards, digital cameras, and camera phones, and you can even enhance your images before you print by using the 1.8-inch color LCD display. All these great features come in one stylish machine that will enhance any home or office setting.

The MP470 uses Canon’s FINE technology with microscopic droplets as small as two picoliters for incredible detail, and a maximum 4800 x 1200 dot-per-inch (dpi) resolution for vivid, lifelike prints. It also works fast, printing a borderless 4-by-6-inch photo in approximately 46 seconds. Before printing, you can preview and fine tune your images by using the color LCD display. For added convenience, you can print from memory cards, cameras, and camera phones–no computer needed. You even have the option of click-connect-print: Just capture an image with a PictBridge-ready digital camera/DV camcorder, then connect and print. And if you’re not completely satisfied with your print, the Easy-PhotoPrint EX software and automatic image-fix help you troubleshoot and create a wide variety of beautiful shots. In fact, using select Canon inks and photo papers with the MP470 will produce photos that last up to 100 years.

Exceptionally easy to use, the MP470 is ready to go when you are; simply press the power button and you can begin inputting commands immediately. The USB 2.0 interface enables the fastest possible image transfers and scanning speeds. For added convenience, you can print from a compatible Bluetooth device in another room, using the optional USB Bluetooth adapter. When it’s time to make copies, trust the dual color gamut processing technology to automatically optimize quality based on the type of originals you’re copying. And all your scans will have superb detail, thanks to the high resolution of up to 2400 x 4800 dpi.
