Get a wireless all-in-one printer for $69.99

It's new, not a refurb, and it not only prints, scans, and copies, but also faxes. Cooler still, the Canon Pixma MX340 can print photos straight from your iPhone!

Canon's Pixma MX340 pulls the usual multifunction duties (including fax), but also adds wireless printing from iPhones and iPods. Buy.com

I just can't let a month go by without spotlighting one of my all-time favorite peripherals: a Wi-Fi printer. Even better than that, a Wi-Fi multifunction printer. You haven't lived until you've scanned or printed a document without wires!

Buy.com has the Canon Pixma MX340 wireless all-in-one inkjet for $69.99 shipped. This model is new, not refurbished, and it offers a few perks you don't usually see at this price point.

For starters, it doesn't just print, scan, and copy; it also sends and receives faxes. (Believe it or not, some folks still need to do that.) The MX340 offers 20 color-coded speed dials and can store up to 50 pages in memory--more than enough for the average home office.

I'm even more enamored of its support for iPhone printing: using Canon's free Easy-PhotoPrint app, you can beam photos right from your iPhone or iPod Touch. Heck, forget all the other stuff, that alone makes the printer worth getting!

The Pixma's other specs are fairly typical, including 4,800-by-1,200-dpi output resolution, borderless 4x6-inch photo printing, and a 30-sheet auto document feeder. Ironically, the printer actually comes with a USB cable.

About the only things missing are a color LCD for previewing photos and a memory-card reader for printing them. (It does support PictBridge connections, though.)

If you can get along without those items, you've found yourself a solid deal on a wireless all-in-one. (By the way, CNET hasn't reviewed this model, but it has over a dozen very positive user reviews at Amazon.)
