Introduction

The Canon MX850 inkjet multifunction printer is an all-in-one device, capable of copying, printing from memory card and PC, faxing and scanning. This hefty (at 30.7 lbs) device is aimed at the home office user who wants it all, but in one device. It does this along with working as a stand-alone device using the 2.5 inch TFT screen and control panel keys. It did a creditable job of performing all of the tasks that all-in-one devices are expected to do: the print quality was good and the operations were generally speedy. The big addition to the MX850 from the MX830 resets in its accrual of fax features like answering machine connectivity, one-touch speed dialing and remote reception. But it's a bit on the expensive side; the Canon MX850 retails for $279.99, when there are devices with similar features for significantly less.
