Product snapshot: Canon PIXMA MX926 multifunction printer

This new multifunction wants to be the centre of your home office

Printers are becoming less and less important these days, as we move towards a paperless workplace that relies on email and cloud storage for sharing documents. But if you’re running a small home office, or a small business, chances are you’ll still need a printer — for everything from printing receipts to faxing invoices and scanning documents.

Canon’s PIXMA MX926 is the new top dog in the company’s home and home office printer line-up. It replaces the PIXMA MX895.

What business users — especially high-volume printers — will like about the PIXMA MX926 is that it can be purchased with XXL-sized ink tanks. This translates into over 1,000 A4 pages of monochrome printing on each refill — much less painful than replacing an expensive cartridge every 250 sheets.

None

The MX926 has a double-sided 35-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF), so as long as you’ve got the staples removed you can set a multi-page, multi-sided document on the input tray and scan/copy/fax it to your heart’s content.

One of the other additions to the MX926’s repertoire is its dual-size front paper tray. The capacious tray is made to fit a full 250 sheets of A4 plain paper, but will also accommodate 20 sheets of photo paper.

None

The PIXMA MX926 is a fast printer, too; it can output A4 documents at up to 10 impressions per minute (ipm) for colour pages and up to 15ipm for black and white. It’s got five ink cartridges, which can be removed and replaced individually without wasting other colours.

It’s got built-in Wi-Fi and a wired Ethernet connection, so you can hook it up to your network and share it amongst multiple PCs. The Wi-Fi also means you can scan to, and print from, any supported tablet or smartphone. AirPrint support and Google Cloud Print support are also integrated.

None

Canon’s PIXMA MX926 is not going to be a particularly cheap printer, but it’s going to be a high quality one. It’ll be available from March onwards.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
