The Pixma MX870 is one of the best-balanced inkjet MFPs we've tested recently. It delivers good performance and good features for the price. While the machine is best suited for a small or home office, its media slots and good color output make it useful for a busy family as well. quote

Like Canon's other printers in its Pixma MX-series, the stylish MX870 has versatile features, including a handy scroll wheel and an ample 2.5-inch LCD, to help you get the job done. ... Just be ready to stomach its intermittent print lag.

The Canon Pixma MX870 Wireless Office All-In-One Printer is a reasonably good fit for a home and home office or for a micro office, but it's a bit slow.

If you're in the market for a multi-function device that has literally everything built-in and produces excellent quality prints then the MX870 is almost certainly the device for you. Our only disappointment was a slight lack of detail on colour photocopies.

Although the changes in the PIXMA MX870 are only small, they add up to an overall improvement is several areas, such as printing costs and ease of use. The main bugbear – the speed of duplex print – hasn’t been addressed, though, and is a lot slower than from equivalent HP or Lexmark machines.

If you are thinking about buying this printer for its document-feeder, don't. It just won't do double-sided legal, and it only allows odd (Non-Legal, Letter, A4, etc) sizes to be scanned using the platen. I ended up selling mine after 4 months and buying a used Fujitsu ScanSnap. Print-wise, it...
