The Canon SmartBase MPC200 (also known as the MPC200 Photo) is an all-in-one color inkjet printer that could be just as comfortable in a small office as in a home. It can scan, copy, and print with speeds of up to 14 pages per minute monochrome and 10 ppm in color. Printer ink costs are low, thanks to affordable Canon MPC200 ink, and users will appreciate how simple it is to operate.
For scanning and copying, the MPC200 includes a flatbed scanning platen at the top of the unit, with a simple control panel located in front of it. Users who are used to an automatic document feeder might miss this feature, but the average home user probably won't notice its absence. Along with producing high-quality photo prints (thanks to the excellent Canon MPC200 ink cartridges), the unit can also produce borderless prints in sizes up to A4, prefect for creative projects, especially those that will be framed.
Speaking of the SmartBase MPC200 ink, the cost of printer ink is surprisingly low for an inkjet model. The capacity of SmartBase MPC200 ink cartridges makes them quite cost-effective, and compatible Canon MPC200 ink is available at a reduce price for those who want to save even more.
ITReviews gave the MPC200 a positive review, mentioning the easy installation and excellent feature set as some of the best reasons to consider the machine. They were disappointed by flimsy construction in a few areas, and found photo quality to be a bit mixed at times.
Overall, the MPC200 is a good fit for individuals in a home office, but it probably doesn't have the speed or capacity to operate as a shared device. Nevertheless, its solid speeds and good photo quality, as well as its versatile paper-handling, are all excellent reasons to recommend it for purchase.
