Short Review

This printer is ideal for printing photos from digital cameras. The built-in PictBridge port makes it easy for users to print photos directly from digital devices. The print quality is even better thanks to the print resolution offered.

What others say ?

MX300 Print Quality

At first glance the control panel looks complicated as it consists of various buttons and a two-line text LCD. Users should read the manual to know more clearly how to operate the printer.

One of the interesting things that Canon provides three sizes for each cartridge that allows users to choose a more economical package.

We try to compare the various printer models from different brands. This is what we get.

Printer Price Comparison
Canon PIXMA MX300 $200
Epson M200 All-in-One $192
HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3636 Wireless $85.9

Deskjet 3636 is much cheaper than the others. Save 57% compared to the MX300. While the price of M200 is relatively the same as the MX300.

Although cheaper, but Deskjet 3636 is not lost in terms of specifications offered. Print speeds up to 22 pm and maximum resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi. In addition, only this printer has a wireless interface. It is also the smallest and the lightest. Naturally, it is most popular among the three. This is reflected in the data we get from Google Trends.

Printer Popularity

Surprisingly, M200 is more popular than the MX300 whereas the price of both is not much different. This is probably due to the popularity of Epson in terms of cheaper printing costs. In addition, the M200 is the fastest in print, reaching 34 ppm but its resolution is the lowest only 1440 x 720 dpi. This printer can only be used for black and white printing only.
