Canon Pixma MP272 Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

Pixma MP272 is an inkjet all in one intended at the home user, it gives good quality prints and scans with a light duty cycle.

At a maximum resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi, the prints from Canon Pixma MP272 are of good quality with borderless printing also being an option. It comes with a 2 ink cartridges setup, with the black cartridge capable of 244 pages and colour cartridge capable of printing up to 220 pages. Both the cartridges are of the pigment variety and not dye based. Due to the low print capability and higher cartridge pricing, the compatible Canon Pixma MP272 ink cartridges are vastly prefered for the printer. The speed offered by the device ranges from 8.4 ppm for monochrome and 4.8 ppm for coloured printouts. This lightweight and compact printer comes with a input feeder tray of 100 pages. The scanner is a tablet type, with 1200 x 2400 maximum resolution, which can be enhanced up to 19200 x 19200 dpi.

The enhanced scanner resolution, high quality colour printouts give it good capabilities. But the lack of connectivity as well as a low cartridge life and monthly duty cycle restrict its usage to personal. It comes with an average software bundle includes easy webprint EX and ChromaLife100+ technology, the former makes printing from internet easier and the later one helps to enhance the print durability.

Advantages:
  • Good print results in both image and grayscale
  • Very silent operations
  • Enhanced scanning mode gives really good quality scans
  • Webprint EX and ChromaLife100+ technology
Disadvantages:
  • High operating costs (can be nullified by using compatible Canon Pixma MP272 ink cartridges)
  • Low paper handling capacity
  • Lack of connectivity options
Conclusion:

This is a printer aimed squarely at the personal home and student user. While the print quality is good, the light duty cycle and lack of connectivity options make it suitable only for home and educational purposes.
