The Canon MP140 is a high quality inkjet all-in-one unit. It serves as a printer, copier and scanner. It prints up to 20 pages per minute and 600x600dpi using black printer ink. It produces up to 15 pages per minute using 4800x1200dpi in color. It also scans at a high resolution of 600dpi. The Pixma MP140 can copy up to 19 copies per minute in black and 15 copies per minute in color. This is a quick and precise device that is great for low volume use, such as in small businesses or homes. Larger businesses would get more use from a unit with Xerox 108R00669 ink, which prints faster and lasts longer.
The Canon MP140 weighs almost 14 pounds, and it measures in at 17.5"x15.0"x7.1", which makes it compact but not necessarily portable. It is compatible with many different types and sizes of paper, such as standard letter size, legal, credit card, 4"x6", 4"x8", 5"x7", 8"x10" and envelopes. It is also compatible with Windows and Mac and is supported by Vista.
A lot of Canon inkjet printers use 5 or 6 tank system which has individual tanks for Canon MP140 ink cartridges. However, with an all-in-one unit under $100, the quality using only 2 types of Pixma MP140 ink is impressive. There is the standard black printer ink, which is dispensed using 320 nozzles. The color ink tanks, which consist of cyan, magenta and yellow, flow through 1,152 nozzles. The nozzle technology patented by Canon, ejects hundreds of small droplets of Canon MP140 ink per inch.
The MP140 uses a Dual Gamut Processing Technology that provides guaranteed higher quality and optimization for copying photos. It also allows users to copy or scan thick documents that do not lie flat, such as a notebook. Using Canon MP140 ink, this unit can print a 4"x6" color photograph in one minute. When printed on special Canon paper, these prints can last up to 100 years.
Reviews for the Canon MP140 vary from "don't waste the money" to "perfect" . The majority of consumers and experts both give it 3 out of 5 stars, which isn't bad for the price range. The most common complaint is the rate at which this unit goes through Pixma MP140 ink, which is considerably faster than competing products such as HP 88 Black ink. It is perfect for personal or amateur photo printing and low volume scanning and copying.
