A Short Review Of The Canon Pixma MP280 All-In-One Printer
This printer from Canon is a budget model with scanning and copying features but no wireless connectivity. The paper tray holds 100 sheets and is situated at the rear of the machine. It has a cover over the simple controls with indicators but no LCD screen so you cannot view images before printing. The Canon MP280 ink is held in two cartridges and you will be alerted when ink levels are getting low. The black Canon MP280 ink cartridge holds a pigment based ink which is quick drying while the tri-colour Canon MP280 printer cartridge holds bright vivid coloured inks.
Print Times And Costs
The printer will achieve 5.5 pages per minute for mono text documents and 2.4 pages per minute for colour graphics. Quality for black text is good and colours are bright and strong. If you opt for high capacity Canon MP280 printer ink cartridges you can expect to pay 4.3 pence for a mono page and 8.9 pence for colour. These costs can be reduced by using Canon MP280 compatible ink cartridges which can be obtained from our website. Canon has priced this model at £10 less than the MP495 and it has similar speeds and quality but no wireless.
