I must confess, I haven't dug into all the functions of this printer yet. But from what I have seen, this is by far the best printer you could ever buy for the buck!
The Canon MX700 is an awesome machine that can handle your daily home office functions with such ease you will never waste the company's resources again. If you want fast, quiet printing, the MX700 does just that. You can even choose if you want printing from the top or the bottom tray. That is convenient because that gives you more flexibility in placing this rather large machine. You can even do double-sided printing if you follow the directions carefully. The best part is that the ink lasts a long time and is relatively inexpensive. I paid $17 for a refill of just the black ink but it took us four months of heavy, HEAVY printing (filing taxes, credit reports, housing applications) to use up all the ink.
The Canon MX700 also copies for you. This feature is a little slower, but if you aren't making more than ten copies of anything this can come in handy. Those dollars at Kinko's add up, especially color copies!
In addition to copying, the Canon MX700 has a wonderful scanner. One of the pictures in this review is a scanned photo that was taken over 20 years ago. Look at that resolution! My mom is gonna be happy when I start scanning all those pictures from back in the day:)
And the fax function is a cinch, too, if you are only faxing a few documents. Stick them one by one under the hood, scan 'em, save 'em and send 'em with a couple of button presses.
I absolutely love this machine. It is easy to function, makes very little noise, and can take care of those little things you wish you could do from home instead of work.
