Canon Pixma MX340 Review
There are a few big names in the printing industry; Canon is definitely one of them. While Canon may originally be known for creating high quality cameras, and they now also create high quality digital cameras, the company has also been in the printing game for a very long time. Their printers are some of the most high quality models you can find, and if you're looking for a good printer, you may want to take a close look at the Canon Pixma MX340.
What It Is
This style of printer is one that looks very much like some of the more recent multi function printers that you can find being offered by this company, but it has something that many people will find very appealing: wireless capability. Yes, the Canon Pixma MX340 is able to hook up to your wireless network so that you can send something to your printer to print no matter how far away from your wireless access point you are. It features a 30 sheet automatic document feeder as well as a 100 sheet rear input slot. You'll find that there are front control panels that have buttons that have been clearly labeled so that it's easy for just about anyone to use. The printer also comes with a number of different types of printing software as well, but it does not have any media card readers in the body of the printer.
One of the best things you'll find about this printer is that the ink cartridges are not eaten up by the printer as long as you aren't printing a ton of photos. If you stick with documents, even if they're color, your Canon ink cartridges will last for a decent amount of time, making it a good option for someone who is looking to save some cash. You'll also enjoy the low price, as it is one of the lower priced wireless printers that is currently available.
While the Canon Pixma MX340 is a decent option for a printer, there are a few drawbacks. It requires a USB connection during the setup of the printer and if you're not very technologically savvy, you may find it a bit confusing to hook up at first. And it's not the quietest of printers, as you definitely know when it is running paper through the printer.
If you're just getting into wireless printing, and you want to have a reliable printer that comes from a well-known company, this printer is definitely a viable option.
