Canon Pixma MP280 Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

A multi-functional device that starts from the very bottom in terms of pricing, and gives good value for money results in prints and scans.

The printer is good for 4800 dpi and gives good quality clear prints. The scanning and copying resolution is 2400 x 2400 dpi and the results are good for the price range this printer operates in. The speed for monochrome prints is 8.4 ppm and colours gets printed at 4.8 ppm. The input feeder tray takes 100 papers at a time which given the small duty cycles is adequate. The Canon Pixma MP280 ink cartridges are called hybrid by the company, which essentially means the black cartridge is pigment and coloured ones are dye based. They are good for about 2000 prints, and result in moderately economical operations. This is a lightweight and compact printer, with a small footprint. The Canon Pixma MP280 ink cartridges are also available in high yield sizes, further lowering the print costs.

While the display is just LED lights, the printer even has a button for image resizing, a feature usually found in costlier devices. The various buttons on the top give Canon Pixma MP280 enough functionality for its size.

Advantages:
  • Very good, HD quality Photo printing
  • Full HD movie print, enables printing high quality frames from video
  • Good overall scan and photocopy results
Disadvantages:
  • Only USB support, no card slots etc for image prints
  • Very rudimentary, bare bone drivers and functionality
Conclusion:

Canon Pixma MP280 is meant for home use, and that is evident from its connectivity options, performance, feed tray and more. Anything above that light duty use, in the form of home office or small office is going to get tough. Best suited for infrequent home and student use.
