Canon PIXMA MP980 Reviews

PhotographyBlog reviews the Canon PIXMA MP980 and writes;
“They’re great if you’re tight for space, or you only do casual photo printing. For the best quality prints, a dedicated printer is still going to give you better results. This latest generation of devices is very close though. The photo print quality of the Canon Pixma MP980 exceeds anything you could have gotten from a dedicated photo printer a couple of years ago.”

PCMAG reviews the Canon PIXMA MP980 and writes;
“Photo speed was a lot better, with an average of 1:13 for each 4-by-6 and 2:01 for each 8-by-10. The Epson Artisan 800 was a bit faster for 4-by-6s, at 59 seconds, but a bit slower for 8-by-10s, at 2:08. The real test for a photocentric printer, however, is its photo quality, not its speed. And the MP980 did very well on that score. You can pretty well count on almost any inkjet printer today to print photos that are as good at what you’d get from your local drugstore. Photos printed on the MP980 are far closer to a professional photo labs output, with quality suitable for framing.”

Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA MP980 and writes;
“This is another excellent machine from Canon, with the extra facilities of improved black and white print and negative and transparency scanning. Media handling is slightly less versatile and duplex prints are as slow as ever, but the extra flexibility of wireless networking is compensation.”

Imaging-resource reviews the Canon PIXMA MP980 and writes;
“Canon’s MP line impressed us even at the low end with the MP620 and the top of the line MP980 simply fills out our wish list with film scanning and duplex printing. It may still only have four color inks but they do the job of six. More remarkable was the excellent quality of the film scans, far better than anything we’ve seen in a multifunction device or even an inexpensive flatbed scanner.”

CNET reviews the Canon PIXMA MP980 and writes;
“The Pixma MP980 showed significant speed improvements across the board with the exception of the color text test, where the MP970 scored 7.85 pages per minute to the MP980′s 5.75 pages per minute. Compared with the rest of the competition, though, the MP980 fared about average…”

Canon PIXMA MP980 User Reviews

Canon MP980
“Excellent product. Wireless feature was easy to set up and works flawlessly. I have printed photos from a digital camera, have copied prints with the scanner and have printed microsoft office documents. The photos have realistic lifelike colors and the documents are laser quality. So far the ink usage seems average for this type of printer. I am very happy with this printer and would recommend it highly.” – by L. Summey

Amazing printer – and great customer support
“The built-in wireless capability is great – it was an important feature for me. I really like the two paper inputs: a paper tray for plain paper and the back input for photo paper. The print speed is *very* fast. A 4×6 photo prints in approximately 30 seconds. A 8×11 plain paper print is even faster for plain paper quality. The photo image quality is amazing – as good as commercial photo printing.” – by Tech Guy

Well worth the price
“This printer was twice as expensive as the kodak, but worth every penny. The prints are AMAZING, and 4×6 Photos print faster than any printer I’ve ever used. There is also a dedicated Gray Ink cartridge allowing for true gray scale/Black & White photo prints. Printing is completely effortless. Everything just works. Setup was a breeze. “ – by Chris

Great prints and convenience on home wi-fi network
“Now that its up an running it works a dream enabling me to print and scan from any computer anywhere in the house. The scanning is decent (I don’t have a huge quality need, but I can’t complain about anything I’ve scanned), the printing is stunning. Colors are accurate for photos and the double sided printing is a great paper saver for general printing. “ – by A. Patterson

Canon MP980 Offers Wireless Technology and Quality Prints
“The wireless technology is a great feature but what matters most is the quality of the photo prints and this Canon model receives high marks in this area. The network setup and connection could be improved and the LCD would be better if it offered touch functionality. But all things considered, this is a very good photo printer and it earns an easy recommendation. “ – by Bryan Carey

Great Product
“I have now owned this printer for the past month. I needed a new all in one printer to replace my old one. This printer prints blazing fast black and white text and professional quality pictures. I enjoy the double sided printing as well, which makes it easy to print trifold brochures. I would highly recommend this product if the price does not deter your.” – by A. Cohen

“..I absolutely love this thing!!! I know every product out there has a defect some place so considering customer service was so good, I really didn’t mind having to wait a few more days to get this printer. Photos are brilliant! I’m glad I waited a few months for this to come out.” – by Christy Anthony

Outstanding printer, lousy instructions
“..Photos print fantastically well but in order to get the best color match I used the Adobe RGB 98 profile with Photoshop. The printer has a variety of profiles and is very very tweakable which is really helpful. Full bleed photos were so good my friends could not believe they came from this printer. I used the Canon photo plus glossy II 4×6 photo paper. Set that output for the printer so that it optimizes for that printing surface…” – by NH gadget guy

Good performance; great quality; crappy software; very expensive to run
“This printer does everything I wanted it to do, and does it well in excess of my expectations. Plain paper printing is excellent, and the photo prints are simply gorgeous. I cannot tell the difference between this printer’s photo output and store-bought prints. Furthermore, the memory card, wireless functionality, and the built-in display work great. The UI is intuitive and works well for printing photos directly from a camera’s memory card..” – by Rus Healy
