Canon PIXMA MP270 - All-in-One Inkjet Printer


This all-in-one printer with scanner is as cheap as they come.

Canon provides Windows and OSX drivers for this machine on the bundled CD, as well as standard Canon utilities for scanning, photo editing and printing Web pages.

Canon PIXMA MP270 review


The Canon PIXMA MP270 is one of the cheapest inkjet-based multifunction printers on the market.

The Canon PIXMA MP270 isn't going to win any speed or printing quality awards, but it is very attractively priced. The inclusion of reasonable scanning quality makes this printer a no-brainer - if you predominantly print documents and photos where...

Canon - PIXMA MP270 All-in-One printer


The competition for the most efficient and affordable All-in-One printer shows no sign of cooling down, with Canon releasing the latest in its PIXMA multifunction range for less than £60. In fact, we discovered prices significantly ...

Although you may find yourself getting through the ink cartridges relatively quickly, both the quality of the prints and the speed of operation were impressive and, for the price, the PIXMA MP270 would be an excellent choice for a low-yield All-in-One.

Consumer review by:

Good entry level multifuntion printer.


This printer/scanner is the bottom end of the Canon Pixma multifunctional range. Where it differs from it's bigger brothers, is that it's designed to be cheap and used with a computer, rather than on it's own with a camera (though it does have a USB...

Received the Printer and yes very happy the only downside to it was that there was no lead to connect to my laptop, or any information on which one to buy

Canon PIXMA MP270 inkjet multifunction


Canon's PIXMA MP270 is one of the cheapest inkjet-based multifunctions on the market. With a price tag of $79 — to throw that into perspective, ...

Quick and simple set up over USB, reasonable scan quality, low price for included features

Not fast to print text or images at high quality settings, display can be confusing without reading the manual

Canon's PIXMA MP270 certainly doesn't offer the best print quality available on the market, but for its $79 price tag you get a well-built product with a reasonable scanner and decent if unspectacular photo printing abilities. It's not fast, but for...
