Canon PIXMA MP610 detailed review

All-in-One With A Class

The MP610 is the latest in the PIXMA range of inkjet multifunction devices from Canon. Successor to the feature rich PIXMA MP600, the new device boasts of significant upgrades to the scanner unit.

Like previous MFDs from Canon, the MP610 has dual paper feeding mechanisms—a top-loading tray at the back and the bottom cassette. Both these trays can hold a maximum of 150 sheets. The paper-feed selector switch on the top can be used for selecting either tray.

On the front, above the scanner unit, a fold up tilting panel has a 65mm TFT display and the button console. The TFT display is crisp and can easily rival any high-end cell phone screen. The control buttons are logical, and the command wheel is easy to use. Browsing the menu is intuitive, thanks to the command wheel. The card reader is located just besides the output tray and it accepts almost all types of memory cards except for xD card; bad luck if you own Fuji or Olympus cameras.

The MP610 takes five cartridges and they clip on to the head assembly. These cartridges are illuminated Red when clipped properly into place. It features USB 2.0 and the port is located at the back of the machine.

The MP610 raced though the speed test and delivered the first print within 10 seconds. For the combi-document, it took around 34 seconds on normal printing quality and 50 seconds when taxed with best quality. Our photograph was printed in 70 seconds—relatively fast. On the quality front, the MP610 is very similar to other PIXMA printers—sharp text and negligible feathering. Photographs were stunningly reproduced—colour rendition was spot on.

The scanner is fast—preview times really amazed us, and scanning is equally fast too. The quality at 300 dpi was good, though details have an over-sharpened feel to them. Copying is fast thanks to the brilliant printer and scanner unit.

At Rs 17,995, the MP610 is reasonably priced for the features and performance on offer.
