Canon PIXMA MP600 Reviews

PCPRO reviews the Canon PIXMA MP600 and writes;
“The scanner’s optical resolution is 2,400 x 4,800dpi and it proved fast in our tests, producing an image preview in just 13 seconds; that’s faster than the Epson Perfection V350 Photo.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMag reviews the Canon PIXMA MP600 and writes;
“The MP600’s overall output quality is among the best available for ink jet-based AIOs. Photo output is particularly noteworthy; every photo I printed from our test suite displayed true photo quality. The only issue I found that was worth mentioning was a slight tint in a monochrome test photo.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA MP600 and writes;
“AColour graphics are also generally good, though occasional white speckles in areas of solid colour show that some paper fibres are not getting fully covered. Colours in a copy, using the machine’s scanner, come out noticeably lighter than in the original.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Canon PIXMA MP600 and writes;
“The print quality of the MP600 was impressive. Text quality was excellent, especially for an inkjet printer. We saw only very minor jaggedness on the edges of some characters. The color graphics print showed similar high quality: excellent saturation in color blocks, sharp detail, and impressive color reproduction, both in graphics and photo elements. We also liked the 4×6 photo prints, but we would’ve liked to see richer, warmer colors. Still, the photos are good enough for snapshooters and amateur photo hobbyists.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCWorld reviews the Canon PIXMA MP600 and writes;
” Our photo samples on plain paper also looked good compared to the output of most inkjet printers, with smooth tones and decent contrast, but many of the colors were too bright. On photo paper, the MP600 excelled, producing beautifully sharp prints with smooth gradations–though skin tones looked a little artificially bronzed. .”

Canon PIXMA MP600 User Reviews

Excellent Printer
“One of the best printers in the market. I was looking for an all in one for quite sometime and this one struck-me with its printing quality. The Photo prints are really sharp and crisp but at times the photo-prints tend to be a bit on the darker side. This can be avoided by touching the photographs a bit before printing, a pain!!! nevertheless. It comes with a HD panel to preview the tasks it will perform. Copying, document printing, scanning and photo-printing etc are all cool features. “ – by GEEK

professionla quality photos every time
“I am very happy with the cannon printer finally I can get pro. results every time the quality is equal to or better than Snap Fish which I had been using. I find no problems with it at all. I would recomend it to anyone wanting to copy his own photos from a digital camera it is perfect on scanning and printing text as well “ – by Charles W. Greenlee

Great all in one
“This is an awesome printer. I got it to replace my Epson CX8400 which completely sucked. My Epson CX8400 ate through ink cartridges even if you didn’t use them. My Canon MP600 though has so far been very quick, very good quality when printing, and has reasonably priced ink that lasts quite a while. “ – by Josef Torkelsen

Great printer for a Macintosh
“I use the MP600 with an iMac and Tiger OSX 10.4.11. The software really works well, much better than the HP I replaced. Scanning to docs and email works great. It prints from both the tray and the open sheet feeder (great for printing Quicken checks and envelopes). A simple button changes the feed from tray to sheet feeder. Fast and excellent quality print. Haven’t used it for photos since we do those online. Ink seems to last pretty well–haven’t replace them yet and it’s been 6 months or so.” – by RichWords

This printer rocks
“I’ve had a Canon PIXMA MP600 for about two years and have waited to make sure it lasts a while before writing a review. I use it frequently for printing, copying, and scanning. Everything looks very clear and bright for at home quality. Have had no problems. Highly recommend. “ – by Stellarella

Excellent Multi-functional Printer
“I purchased this printer from Amazon. I had an Epson multi-functional printer before, the Pixma 600 is superior in many ways. The photo printing quality is comparable with the 6 ink cartridged Epson. The Epson ink cartridges are expensive and low on volume, it’s also a nightmare to refill. The Canon cartridges are very easy to refill and this can lead to big saving if you print a lot of photos and documents. I highly recommend this printer! “ – by F. Wang

Love my canon
“Print quality is great, ink cost is low, the ink lasts for quite a while. In fact, I’ve had this printer for about a year and replacing the ink for the first time, and I’m a heavy printer. I love that there is a screen where you can select which feature you’re using. You can scan items automatically as a pdf, the scanner quality is great, and it gives you multiple options to choose to modify scanned items. There’s just so many options available on this great machine, that instead of faxing items, I just use this to scan and email. Great buy, I have no complaints after 1 year of usage and would recommend to everyone. “ – by J. Spears

“In addition to Canon’s excellent customer service, the features of this all-in-one printer are top notch. I’ve scanned documents and photographs, and the printer has captured every detail. From envelopes to photographs, the print quality is suberb, and it’s very easy to use. I would definitely recommend this product to others. “ – by Thomas Barntsen
