Hardware.info reports on the launch of four new Pixma all-in-one inkjet printers by Canon, the Pixma MX395, MX455, MX525 and MX925, with all of the new devices featuring printing, copying, scanning, faxing, an automatic document feeder (ADF) and intelligent software for high productivity.
Boasting improved hardware, the MX925 also features two front-loading paper trays able to accommodate 250 sheets of regular paper and up to 20 sheets of photo paper, with Canon claiming that the printer has an improved print speed compared to the previous model.
Each of the new printers feature an integrated 30-page ADF, with the exception of the MX925 which has a 35 page ADF, making scanning and copying multipage documents easier for users. The printers also have a large colour display, enabling the user to directly access cloud services.
While the MX925 is claimed to be the first Canon printer with an option for an XXL black ink cartridge, all of the new models are able to use high capacity, XL cartridges.
A number of connectivity options are available with the MX455, MX525 and MX925, including mobile printing through smartphones and tablets using Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint app for Android, iOS and Windows RT. Integrated WiFi also enables the printers to share documents across a network easily, and the MX525 and MX925 support Pixma Cloud Link with Google Cloud Print to print Google Docs or Gmail attachments remotely.
In addition, the Pixma MX455, MX525 and MX925 feature an extra USB port, allowing the storage of PDF and JPEG scans and copies of faxes to an external USB flash drive.
The printers will be available in March at the recommended retail prices of £59 ($93/€69) for the Pixma MX395, £79 ($124/€93) for the Pixma MX455, £99 ($156/€116) for the MX525 and £179 ($282/€210) for the MX925.
