Canon Pixma MP970 Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

Another inkjet all in one from Canon, the Pixma MP970, aims to be a device suitable for small offices, homes, and institutions with good photo printing requirements. It is not a very compact unit like most other inkjet all-in-ones.

Canon Pixma MP970 main function is that of photo printing, as such it offers very good print quality with a resolution of up to 2400 dpi. Unlike other inkjets, the Canon Pixma MP970 Ink Cartridges also have light cyan and light magenta which help in getting true to life colour prints. The optical scan resolution is a high 4800 x 9600 dpi, but the scan quality is still not up to the usual quality that we expect from Canon. The print speeds range from 1.7 ppm for photo prints and 20 ppm for colour prints to 30 ppm for black and white prints.

The printer has 2 trays of 150 pages each, one in the rear and another regular paper tray, though there is no automatic document feeder for single prints of special type or size of paper. Other than the usual supported paper types, this printer also supports CD labels, print on transfers and CD jewel case inserts. Another standout feature is that it can scan a 35mm film and directly send it for printing photos.

Canon Pixma MP970 is primarily meant to be a photo printer, and thus the USB not supporting hard drives or fast drives is little disappointing. Other than that the connectivity options include USB, ethernet, wifi, and the card slot that supports most cards and memory sticks with its 2 card slots and PictBridge USB port. The 7 Canon Pixma MP970 Ink Cartridges with pigment based black and dye based colour cartridges help in giving very good quality black and colour prints.

Advantages
  • Good connectivity options
  • Auto duplexer makes many tasks easier
  • Excellent photo quality prints
  • Supports 35mm film also
Disadvantages
  • No automatic document feeder
  • No fax support
  • Scan quality not upto the mark

Canon Pixma MP970 is a large inkjet with multiple connectivity options meant to serve the needs of small offices and image intense requirements. With extra colour cartridges and excellent photo prints its does its job very well. However, some weaknesses like a large footprint, lack of duplex printing and no fax support, stop it from becoming a workhorse that would serve a medium office needs comprehensively.
