User Opinions

Canon Pixma MX310 User Reviews

Great for Printing Photos
“My main concern was photo print quality as well as cost of ink and time to print. It scored well in those areas. I’ve really only used it for printing purposes and am extremely happy with with the quality and ease of use. I really don’t print a whole lot and we are just now having to replace our color cartridge after purchasing the printer over 6 months ago. The standard rate for a replacement color cartridge seems to be $25. Its worth it to me. I love this printer.” – by C. Naldrett

An Excellent Printer for the Price
“I picked up the MX310 yesterday at Costco for $80. This is my first Canon. I chose Canon because they always came out on top in Consumer Reports. Setting it up was straight forward using the large set-up sheet. This is a super fast printer and the quality is the best I’ve seen. I made a copy of a form with both B & W and color and could not tell the difference.” – by Peter

It does the job
“For the price I feel it does the job I need it to. It prints quickly ( much faster than the HP printer this Cannon replaced). The print quality is great. All the features work great. It takes awhile but eventually one figures it all out, I would have to say this is not what I would consider a straight forward installation and user friendly machine. The manual is quite involved.” – by Susan

Best I’ve ever had
“I’ve had nothing but trouble with HP printers. The Canon MX310 is such a wonderful change to a truly quality printer-scanner-fax, and for half the price! The software installed without a hitch in Windows XP and all functions work great. The manual is somewhat vague and it took some small amount of fiddling to operate the fax and scan modes, but in the end, not enough to remove a whole star, as it’s really pretty simple to use.” – by Anita Denmark

Love it!
“Love the simplicity, ease of use and results, especially at this price. I have been using it for a couple of months for copying and color printing with no problems. For black printing I use a laser copier. I have another Canon MFD purchased for a different location which cost three times as much, is more complex to use and has five ink cartridges as opposed to the two in the MX310.” – by Jerome B Johnson

Good all-in-one solution for a budget
“It prints pretty quickly, but it takes several seconds to prepare to print, maybe 10 seconds. So that is a bit of a con but it’s not that big of a deal, and if you are printing multiple pages, it only needs that prep time once. However, if you are ust printing out one page, it will take maybe a total of 15 seconds…” – by Esha

No Complaints Here
“Set up is easy. Follow the instructions and no problems. I hooked up to my XP Home Edition, old low end computer and it works fine. Printed and made copies using the document feeder. Works like a charm. If your concerned about ink usage the print and copy functions have settings you can adjust. Set to FAST and see if you like. Remember to press OK for copies or the changes will NOT be saved. I kept adjusting for Copy and it would not save until I pressed OK. Using Grayscale will not print color if you don’t need. Ink prices are reasonable.” – by Just a Guy

Cannon Pixma MX310 Office All-in-one Inkjet Printer
“When the printer arrived it was a little bit larger than I expected, but over all I’m very pleased with everything. Set-up was a breeze and I was printing in no time. The scanner has great resolution and the copier works great as well. I would recommend this printer/all in one to anyone who requires light duty for a home office. “ – by Chris Johnston

Features & Specifications

Canon Pixma MX310 Features

This is true high-performance versatility. You’ll quickly print photos with color resolution up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi; a borderless 4 x 6 inch photo takes only about 46 seconds. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) holds up to 30 originals, so it’s much easier to copy, scan or fax large documents. Copies will be remarkably true to the originals, and documents will feature bold, laser-quality text. You’ll produce 1200-dpi scans with vibrant 48-bit color depth, and achieve Super G3 fax speed in color and B&W.

Quality Canon Inks
You’ll love the quality and convenience of Canon inks. One ink cartridge contains three high-intensity dye-based color inks for rich photos and graphics; the other contains a pigment black ink for clear, laser-quality text. These two cartridges are a snap to use, and easy to replace as needed.

Four High-Performance Ink Tanks
Powering up your printer is now much faster than previous generations. After pressing the Power button, you can begin inputting commands in as little as 5 seconds.

Quick Start
For extra productivity in the home or small office, you’ll be able to produce up to 30 ppm black / up to 20 ppm color. You can also print a superb 4 x 6 inch borderless print in only about 46 seconds.

Auto Image Fix
The built-in Auto Image Fix feature helps you produce amazing results on all your photos. First, it categorizes your images into one of five types – Portrait, Scenery, Night Scenery, Snapshot with Scenery, and Snapshot with Night Scenery – then applies optimal image correction accordingly. For example, it will automatically brighten faces that are backlit and underexposed, and correct color cast to help ensure more accurate skin tones.

Automatic Document Feeder
The built-in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) holds up to 30 originals, so it’s faster and easier to copy, scan or fax your larger documents.

I almost have no complaints about this printer. It is awesome for the price. I am having trouble getting it to accept my ink cartridges when I fill them back up. But all will throw something at you. I have been pleased with all my Canon purchases. I just wish they would make a LED TV.
