The Good Inexpensive; high quality prints; fast print speeds overall, particularly quick with photo printing.
The Bad Scans should be improved; can't use the PictBridge port to connect USB storage devices.
The Bottom Line The Canon Pixma MP600 occupies the sweet spot between quality and price. It's one of our favorite photo all-in-ones for home users.
Canon Pixma MP600
The $200 Canon Pixma MP600 is the mini-me to the gargantuan $300 Pixma MP810. Its smaller form factor and price have no bearing on the print quality or print speed, though we found this printer to be reasonably fast (lightning fast, even, with photo printing), and the print quality impressed us. The only major feature you lose out on is the negative and slide scanner. It doesn't come with a fax either, but a fax generally is found on more office-oriented printers, such as the $200 Canon Pixma MP530. Given the price vs. performance calculation, we actually prefer the Pixma MP600 to the Pixma MP810, and we definitely like it better than its competition from HP and Epson. If high-quality scans are a high priority for you, though, skip the Canon Pixma MP600 and check out the office-oriented Pixma MP530
The Pixma MP600 looks as though someone hit the MP810 with a shrinking ray: same body, same layout--only smaller. It stands 17.5 inches wide, 15 inches deep, and 7.5 inches high. It has the same two paper inputs (cassette in front and auto sheet feeder in back) and a flip-out panel for output. Two memory card slots reside behind a door and the PictBridge port sits under that door.
The control panel is embedded in the scanner lid, and the MP600 also uses the new scroll wheel design found on the MP810. The menu options are shown on the 2.5-inch color LCD that's nestled into the underside of the control panel cover. We like the tactile click response from the scroll wheel, and although we'd always prefer a larger LCD for previewing photos, the one found on the MP600 is bright, colorful, and easy to read.
