The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF780 MFP M40 may have one of the longest model names in its class, but it also has a long list of features. This large-format multifunction inkjet system can handle a range of tasks from printing to scanning and copying. It can handle media up to 36 inches in width, but buyers should be aware of the high price of Canon iPF780 MFP M40 printer ink.
The design of the iPF780 MFP M40 incorporates a large touchscreen monitor that makes it feel more like a workstation than a printer. The interface features large buttons and screen elements that make it easy to find the print, scan, and copy functions users need, and the software running on a PC is similar in design. The unit itself consumes a lot of space, measuring 57.5x69.9x31.5 inches, and it weighs a hefty 120 pounds, including the stand and imagePROGRAF iPF780 MFP M40 printer ink supplies.
The machine connects via USB 3.0 for faster transfers, but also includes an ethernet port for network sharing. The use of Canon's Direct Print & Share cloud portal is a nice touch, as it allows users to upload or download their documents to and from the cloud from virtually anywhere. The SmartWorks MFP software also allows users to easily share their scans via email or send them to a desktop on the network.
Unlike a smaller inkjet model, the system uses five Canon iPF780 MFP M40 ink cartridges instead of the traditional four, with an added "matte black" supply. The imagePROGRAF iPF780 MFP M40 ink cartridges tend to be expensive, but they will last a long time. One of the best features is that Canon iPF780 MFP M40 ink can be changed on the fly, so a printing task doesn't have to be abandoned.
While its large-format printing capabilities would already be impressive, the fact that the Canon iPF780 MFP M40 can handle scanning and copying as well make it an excellent choice all kinds of projects. Its large frame and hefty price tag are formidable, but its output quality and performance are impressive.
