First Look: Canon's sensible All-in-One printer

2:18 /

The Canon Pixma MX372 is a sensible printing solution for personal use, but photographers and offices looking for a network-ready printer could spend a little more up front for better output quality.

Hey. I'm Justin Yu Associate Editor for CNET.com. Today, I'm taking a first look at the Canon Pixma MX372 Home Office printer. It takes the same general shape as I came to see from the Canon Pixma line. You could see the control panel in bear on the front here. There's also an auto document (fitter?) on top, that's for scanning documents texts but unlike most all-in-one printers the cartridges (bay?) actually sits below the scanner. This one is actually the first put it behind the paper output tray. Canon calls this new method of loading ink cartridges fast front and it simply pull down a door to expose the inks. This particular model is pretty cheap at just $80 retail so you'll only get one cartridge for black ink another that houses the tricolor ink set. Based on this levitation I would not recommend this printer if you want a lot of photos, first of all because the quality won't be as great as competing printers with the 5 separate ink tanks and the other reason is because the more photos you print, the more ink that it'll get drawn from the single tricolor cartridge. What was that mean well you'll end up spending up a lot more money on consumables on the long run. That's it. This is definitely a good printer, if you're individual using it for a home office. You get all the data it print, scanning and fax functionality but you can also use canons really generous software suite that it also includes the new feature called the HT movie print. This is pretty cool so if you happen to be using this with the canon HD video camera, you can actually use that software to pull HD Quality snapshot photos out of the film. You can also edit video images with the software to pair a clip for capture and Canon's easy print photo EX software also lets you print calendars, custom templates and stickers. Again though try to limit the amount of full color creations you're printing since the dual ink tanks will quickly run out. So just to recap the MX372 will definitely work for users that value cost and features over output quality but amateur photographers and offices should keep shopping for a more capable machine. If you want that uses five separate ink tanks to bring up photos and presentations to that professional level. You can read all of the details about this printer and more on CNET.com but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the Canon Pixma MX372 all-in-one. Thanks for watching.
