ImageCLASS MPC600F

It looks bulky, but this behemoth from Canon is a Bubble Jet printer, scanner, copier and fax machine in one, and is best suited to the office environment that needs photo quality output and input capabilities, as well as a good old fax machine. It features a straight paper path for the printer, whose input and output trays can hold about 100 sheets, and the flatbed that sits atop the unit can scan A4 pages, as well as magazines, with ease thanks to its rising hinges. A 30-sheet document feeder can be used for scanning multi-page documents; this sits on the scanning lid and is used for faxing, too.

We tested printing speed with a 16-page Word document featuring a combination of text, tables and graphics, and it took around 7.5 minutes to complete in Normal mode on plain paper. The text came out well, with just a little bleeding, but the images were crisp and clear. For copying, the machine prints while it scans and a full colour copy in Normal mode will take just 55 seconds. The control panel handles reductions down to 25 per cent or enlargements up to 400 per cent. Copy quality was excellent in Normal mode, and when glossy photo paper was used with all settings cranked, great photocopy results were achieved — almost identical to the source. Scanning a 16-page document using the automatic document feeder will save up to 7 minutes, depending on the settings you choose.

The unit’s control panel is fairly straightforward, and easy-to-follow docu­mentation is supplied. Running costs include $19-$21 for each individual cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink tanks, and about $30 for glossy photo paper.

In brief: Canon ImageCLASS MPC600F
The MPC600F is a well-featured business machine that provides good performance for text documents. It would be especially useful for people who work primarily with graphics-based documents.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
