    The Canon Pixma MX892 Wireless Inkjet Office All-In-One color inkjet is a multifunction printer (for printing, copying, faxing, and scanning) that is suitable for a home or very small office. it supports both automatic duplex printing and scanning. It's also handsome, solidly built, and moderately fast. The Pixma MX895, caters for everyone. Everyone except the very small, that is, as this printer is something of a giant. Its chunky pyramid design does little to camouflage its bulk, although it does have a nice line in hiding many of its less-sightly features behind compartment doors. The Pixma MX895 has a broadly consumer design and features both pigmented and dye-based black inks: one primarily for documents, the other for producing high-quality photos. But it’s also a business device, with fax, Ethernet, 802.11n Wi-Fi and two-sided copying on its list of do-it-all strengths. On the front sit memory card slots behind a hidden door, and another flap reveals the five ink tanks. Its 3 inch screen doesn’t respond to touch, but a 4 x 4 grid of dynamic buttons beside it lights up with various navigation options. The three color inks and both pigmented and dye-based blacks means photo quality is outstanding. Colors are rich, blacks are beautifully dark and the level of detail is exquisite. Text is also thick, bold and perfectly defined. Setting up the Pixma MX895 is easy; and the MFP supports USB, ethernet, and Wi-Fi connectivity. You can set up Wi-Fi via WPS, though the 3-inch LCD gives you the option of selecting a network and entering a password to accomplish the same setup. Canon bundles its Solution Menu EX software, a capable package that handles everything from photo albums to scanning. You may push-scan to your computer from the PixmaMX895's control panel or offload scans via USB/PictBridge, Memory Stick, Secure Digital, or Compact Flash media. You may also print directly from media inserted into these ports. The general speed is less than stellar; it managed a reasonable 11.5ppm and 6.1ppm in mono and colour. Neither are the graphics sensationally fast, although in the middle mode it does produce a competitive figure of 3.1ppm. What does impress, though, is the quality, which is top-notch. Colors are gorgeous and characters are sharp and focused. And with the addition of dedicated photo paper, the results are gorgeous, deftly constructing its images with the deepest shades and the greatest attention to detail. Running costs for the Pixma MX895 aren't at the cheaper end of the scale. Canon offers no high-yield cartridges to reduce costs beyond the rather steep 3.3p mono and 9p color pages, and that alone will be enough to kill its appeal outside the home. The scanning component of the Pixma MX895 also works very well, generating zippy times, but still adding plenty of color and incisive detail to its scans. An adjustable lid would help though. On the upside, the copying facilities are never less than faithful to the source material. Overall, the Canon Pixma MX895's automatic-duplex printing and scanning are great, as are its sturdy construction, output, and speed. It would nicely serve people who print at a light to moderate volume.
