Canon PIXMA MX330 Reviews

Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA MX330 and writes;
“The PIXMA MX330 is a well-styled machine, which prints at reasonable speeds and produces excellent results on both plain and photo paper. It’s not particularly cheap to run, though and you need to compare it with similar models from Kodak and HP, among others, before making a final decision. “
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-lint reviews the Canon PIXMA MX330 and writes;
“The lack of separate ink tanks and the auto document feeder plus the fax, single the MX330 out as a machine aimed at people who do more with business documents than photos. The test results reflected this too. Text quality is very good for an ink-based device – it’s up there with some laser quality prints we’ve seen. Sharp and solid text blocks are in evidence in normal and best modes and even draft quality was very impressive.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Printercomparison reviews the Canon PIXMA MX330 and writes;
“The scanner is good; the maximum resolution is 1200 x 2400 dpi. I tested the scanner by scanning a 4×6 photo to my PC and then printing it on the MX330. The quality of the photo was as good (at least to the naked eye) as the original I printed directly from my PC.”

PCWorld reviews the Canon PIXMA MX330 and writes;
“In our tests, the Pixma MX330’s text speed actually exceeded expectations slightly, reaching 7.7 ppm, while our graphics samples topped out at 2.2 ppm. Plain text pages looked pretty crisp. Graphics and photos varied more. On plain paper, images appeared grainy and a bit off-color, with orangey flesh tones or purplish monochrome images, for example. On Canon’s own paper, photos looked pale and sometimes streaky, even after repeated maintenance routines.”

Canon PIXMA MX330 User Reviews

powerful workhorse, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I bought this Canon PIXMA MX330 after our old Canon printer died after 10 years of use. Immediately after receiving this printer I had to print 5K fliers in one week. It worked well and fast! No problems with streaking. No problems with paper sticking together and jamming the input slot. I would not buy any other printer for our main computer. It is a little bulky and noisy, but for the price and for the power, our other temporary cheap/free printers (bought as a package deal with the cpus) can’t come close. “ – by Eyes4younme

Good prinyer for doing print, scan and fax together, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Very easy to set up, I installed it in 3 computers in about 15 minutes. Prints quickly, and efficiently. Cartridges are kind of expensive, and this printer uses it fairly quickly. But I just need it for random printing of documents and not really photos although it is very capable of it. Scans very efficiently, and very quickly, and copies quickly as well. I am pleased with it, and would recommend it.” – by Nina Gregersen

So far so good, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This is my fisrt Canon printer and I like it alot so far.. The price was excellent. The ink is durable. The only cons is kinda noisy and it takes a little longer than I thought to print. Other than that I recommended it.” – by Franxis C. Rodriguez

“I love the easy setup. This is my first cannon and I am so pleased in the how fast it is. All the features are easy to use, scanning , coping,faxing etc. I have only used it once to print photos was not happy with the quality but am hopeful after tweaking it I will get what I want from it.” – by Waterbug

Perfect Printer for Household Use, | Rating: ★★★★★
“..I wanted something a bit smaller, but actually the size of this works perfectly for me. It prints quietly and fairly quickly and so far the quality on everything I’ve printed, from some photos to documents, has been perfect. My only regret is that I didn’t get wireless, but that’s on me, not on Canon :).” – by Randi Morse

Great Quality Printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This printer, copier, scanner, and fax all-in-one works great. The printing, copying, and scanning quailty is excellent. We do not have fax capabilities so I cannot attest to how this function works. I haven’t had to replace the ink cartridges yet and I’ve heard that can be pricey, but I think the quality and functionality of the printer is worth it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good printer/copier combo.” – by mags

Great printer for the price. | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This is a good printer, especially because it is not too expensive. It’s pretty big & bulky, and not real quick printing, but that is my only “complaint.” It’s print quality is amazing, and it has tons of features that I will actually use! It is great for the average home who does not do a ton of print/copy jobs. I haven’t tried the photo printing yet, but if the print/copy quality is any indication, I have no doubt it will be the same quality.” – by D. Stewartgriesser
