The Canon MP500 inkjet printer is an all-in-one that offers fast speeds and high quality. Costing around $80, this little machine brings a lot to the home or small office. Advanced performance is displayed through the resolution of 9600x2400 for color Canon printer ink. Want to evaluate images in full color and see them the way they will actually print? The large 2.5 inch LCD viewer offers the user easy and direct printing. A computer isn't even needed—the LCD screen as well as memory card slot make it easy to print without connection to a PC.
Weighing only 21.1 pounds and measuring 17.7x16.8x8.1 inches, this compact machine is quite impressive. The PIXMA MP500 inkjet unit is compatible with Windows 98 and higher, as well as Mac operating systems. Legal, credit card, letter, 4x6, 5x7 and US envelope paper are all compatible with this unit. Approximately 150 sheets of plain paper can fit in the output tray, which is pretty solid for a product of this size. The Canon MP500 also has excellent copying and scanning features, and it has dual sided printing available.
Five Canon MP500 ink cartridges are used in this model—black, cyan, magenta, yellow and pigment black. Using the color Canon MP500 ink cartridges, 19 pages can be produced per minute. For black printer ink, 29 pages per minute can be produced. The FINE or Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering uses 1,856 nozzles in order to eject the ink droplets onto the page. Virtually grain-free images are exerted from the PIXMA MP500 ink.
Reviews from consumers are generally positive. Most applaud the reliable and durable nature of the unit, and many say that it is the best printer they've ever had. The main complaint of the machine is the high price tag on Canon MP500 ink. Not only does this ink cost a lot, but it needs to be replaced frequently. However, those who love the product argue that the high price of printer ink is well worth it due to the quality of the finished products—and most say that's the highest quality possible.
