Product Review - Canon MAXIFY MB2720

Canon MAXIFY MB2720
Wireless Color Printer with Scanner, Copier & Fax

This printer was a mixed blessing. There are a number of pros and a few cons and when it came down to it, my wife decided not to keep it and we have passed it on to someone else in the family. As someone who works fulltime in IT I have supported a lot of printers over the years. This is a very solid printer.

Great 4 color cartridge system
Double sized Black cartridge
Amazing print quality
Excellent scanning
Double paper trays
500 Sheet capacity if both trays have same paper
Better price and same speed as many of the other more expensive printers in the line.
Excellent wi-fi range

Very large footprint
Takes up a lot of space if on the desk
Every time you reload paper delay for recognizing and confirm paper size

If it had just been up to me I would have kept this printer. But the size and re-registering paper every time the tray was opened was just too much for my wife. This is an excellent printer for a small business or a non-for-profit. But it is by no means an industrial printer. This printer had a better price than many in the same range for speed or printing and other features.
