Canon Pixma MP610

The Canon Pixma MP610 is a minor upgrade of the MP600, offering nothing less and not much more but if you don't already have a multifunction printer it may be worth a look.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Now that's what we think the Canon Pixma MP610 stands for. It carries over the feature set we liked about the MP600. No less and not much more.

What's It About?
The MP610 relies on the same five-colour ink cartridge system to drive its printing output (two blacks, and one each of cyan, yellow and magenta).

The MP610 is definitely built for the home office. It has duplexing for increased page handling and two media trays, if you are looking to switch between two paper types at the same time.

However, home offices might be miffed if heavy printing is part of their needs as the MP610 does not come with a document feeder.

What's different?
While they are mostly alike, there are minute differences. The MP610 has a claimed 31ppm monochrome speed over the MP600's 30ppm. The MP610 also has more nozzles which probably accounts for the slight increase in speed.

The MP610 also has a slightly higher scanning resolution at 4,800 x 9,600ppi compared to the MP600's 2,400 x 4,800ppi.

To justify the new model name, the MP610 also stepped up in terms of pretty features. There's a picture auto fix and a quick start option. Not a major incentive to upgrade if you already have the MP600, but for everyone else, it's worth a second look.

The Good:Excellent print results

The Bad:Ink is ridiculously expensive

Continually replacing the ink cartridges. I am a light user but is still costing me about $300/year. Give this printer a very wide berth. I wish I had never laid eyes on it.

The Good:good printing quality and fast, with duplex too

The Bad:keep getting error message U150

for those of you who are not sure what U150 error message is, do a google search on it and you'll know what i mean. some say, worst canon printer ever.

The Good:- Print and Scan quality good
- Large capacity separate black ink tank makes printing relatively cheap.

The Bad:- Failed with all-too-common U150 error (search the web and get ready for the hits) 60 days out of warranty period.
- With above error nothing works - not even scanning.

Large footprint but excellent all-in-one for the price - but now just a large paperweight. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER.

The Good:Pretty much everything.
cd/dvd printing great
2 media trays
cheap
great quality prints

The Bad:Cant find any yet.If I have to find a "con", maybe the overall physical size.I had to modify my pc desk to hold it safely,but I have a small,cheap desk.Overall,not much of a con for what you get.

Great price.I paid $195 but have seen it as low as $185.No USB cable, but since it was replacing me scanner and printer, I had 2 spare cables that fit.Quickstart manual wasn't great to understand but good enough to get by,-full manual on CD is very good.Printer very easy to use with great detail and speed.I like the Cd/dvd printing adapter,prints on compatible perfectly.Had no trouble first time.Super machine for the price.

I do not think your manual is easy to follow. The info is designed by people who are setting up printers all the time, not for one -offs like me. e.g. how many tapes are there to be removed BEFORE you start the machine...

The Good:Separate ink cartridges saves money. Duplex printing for Home and office. no extra power box hanging outside like HP does.

The Bad:No way! for the result I am getting!

great printer. Had an HP AIO before. HP nothing capred to this when it comes to photo quality. HP always leaves a green shade on all the photos. I am really happy with this printer.
