Canon Pixma MX922 Review
Canon, although typically associated with high tech cameras, is now being associated with high tech printers. The Canon Pixma MX922 features a modern design and with the ability to support printing on CDs or DVDs, dual sided printing, scanning, and several other functions, is known as the “all in one printer”. Does the Pixma MX922 measure up to its given nickname or is it simply a great theory?
The basic dimension of the printer, 19.4 inches in length, 15.6 inches in width, 9.1 inches high, make it fairly large. The printer can fit on most desks but it will definitely crowd your space unless you have a particularly large desk. Moreover, weighting around 25.7 pounds, the Pixma MX922 is relatively heavy, which can be bothersome when moving it around your house or office.
The Pixma MX922 features a sleek, modern design that makes it look more expensive than it is. The solid black, glossy color and deep red streak along the bottom of printer is eye catching yet understated. There are several buttons along the top panel of the printer that can make it seem kind of confusing, but it’s not. All the buttons are perfectly labeled and user-friendly. Canon has yet to upgrade its printers and join the world of touch screen technology, so for now all the buttons are actual buttons, not words on a screen. The LCD screen is instead used to confirm the choices you have selected and provide options for faxing or scanning.
The printer contains two ports, which are located on the back of the device. There is a basic Wi-Fi port for Ethernet connectivity as well as a USB 2.0 port. Canon put most of its efforts into connectivity options more than its port options. The Pixma MX922 is compatible with Apple Air Print, Google Cloud Print, and the Easy Photo-Print App for mobile printing. If you took an awesome picture and want to edit it first, the printer is also compatible with Picasa image cloud service, which allows you to print from and scan to the app in order to edit your photos before printing them. The unique option to print onto a CD or DVD is also what makes this printer so appealing.
The small downside to the design is that because it looks so professional and well made, it can almost seem too fancy for the average buyer. Do not let the design fool you though; the Pixma MX922 is actually user-friendly regardless of any prior knowledge.
The Pixma MX922 uses a 250-sheet tray as well as a 20-sheet photo paper tray. After running several tests, the printer gave a somewhat disappointing conclusion. As for basic text / graphic business prints, the MX922 came in second to last with a fairly slow 4-page printing speed (about 1 minute 25 seconds). The amount of pages printed per minute (basic text documents) was only 2.4ppm and the printing speed for a 4 by 6 inch photo was just over a minute. The performance of this model for printing was rather disappointing; however, keep in mind that the quality of these images and text documents never failed to be above average. Faxing and scanning speeds were around average.
