What the feedback says:
Overall the Canon Pixma MP620 has been very well received. Most people seem to like the quality of the photos and the speed of printing. The versatility of this practical machine is also a big plus.
The wi fi technology is a great hit and one of the most praised features along with the fact that it is lightweight and portable.
Another of the pros is that it comes supplied with a USB cable, highly unusual in todays printer market.
Some of the cons are that the set up was tricky, however, the overall opinion seems to be that you need to carefully follow the instructions. The printer is marketed as a ‘two-way’ printer but that actually refers to the two paper trays and not that it is a duplex printer, which unfortunately it is not.
Some people seem to find the ink tanks a bit fiddly and it was raised that the printer will not print if one of the colours is empty.
Overall, another winner from Canon!
