Canon MP370 Printer Review
Many color inkjet models can accomplish various tasks when connected to a PC, but few can do as much as the Canon SmartBase MP370 without the need for a computer at all. It is designed to do be able to do most of its features in standalone mode with only a power connection, and print speeds are solid, at around 12 pages per minute in color and 18 in black. The Canon MP370 ink uses MicroFine Droplet Technology to improve quality and lower printer ink prices.
Operating without a connected PC, the MP370 can make copies, and even scan documents and photos onto thumb drives, memory cards, and other portable media. It can also print directly from these devices, or users can connect a PictBridge-enabled digital camera to select and print from it directly. A very convenient option is the ability to print an index sheet of multiple photos, which makes it easier to choose which to produce in full-size form later, which will also help to conserve SmartBase MP370 ink.
Speaking of printer ink, the capacity of Canon MP370 ink cartridges combines with low prices for a cost per page that is below the average for its class. The SmartBase MP370 ink cartridges achieve this without sacrificing quality, and compatible Canon MP370 ink can provide the same quality at even lower prices.
Expert Reviews gave the MP370 a positive rating, highlighting its excellent output quality and its depth of great features. They found the scanner particularly impressive, and thought it was a good value for the price.
Buyers who may not always have access to a computer may be particularly drawn to the MP370's ability to work on its own, but adding a PC will also enhance its features. It is a well-rounded device that will serve users' needs well.
