Review updated on October 13, 2009 to reflect firmware changes and add information on ink consumption -
The Canon MX-860 is an all-in-one printer designed for home or small business. The printing is fast, sharp and clear. The auto-document feeder scans both sides of the page, a tremendous time saver when you work with two-sided originals. Couple that with duplex-printing and it's trivial to reproduce two-sided forms and documents. The network connectivity also works well...in the six months I've had the printer, it's operated flawlessly in a mixed Mac/Windows environment on both wireless and wired networks.
Let's look at the MX-860 on a piece-by-piece basis ...
Printing The Canon MX-860 uses a set of five ink cartridges for printing. Two of the cartridges are black, with the other three being the typical Magenta/Cyan/Yellow set. The printed output is easily sharp enough to be used for business letters; it almost rivals laser printers in...
This machine can do it all. Functions extremely well. Very pleased at the wireless function - it's wonderful to print from the laptop instead of doing everything from the desktop. CONS: Canon is taking advantage of us with their ink cartridges. Had a Canon previously - fairly late model. They have reduced the size of the ink cartridges from 14 cc to 9 cc. That's a huge decrease with no corresponding increase in the number of pages printed. And of course, that isn't reflected in the prices of the cartridges. If I had explored deeply enough & had realized that before the purchase, another machine or brand would have been bought. Another area that some may be suckered by is the fact that you can save text to file, but woe to those who don't have an OCR program because it isn't included. I've always thought that Canon meant QUALITY but the ink scam will prevent me from buying another.
I've always been a fan of Canon products. I've used their printers for years, including the i850, i4200 (still my favorite printer!) and the multifunction MP530 (my favorite multifunction), MX830 and the MX850. I bought the MX860 for the wireless functionality. I find this is the first Canon product I would not recommend. The wireless printing speed is incredibly slow, either from Mac or PC. Printing through USB is faster, but still far slower than previous models. The new ink is quickly used up and it's expensive. These ink cartridges are not commonly found other than on-line. All-in-all, a real disappointment. I did get the wireless connectivity I wanted but gave up much more in exchange.
