by Reads (6,453)

The Canon Pixma MX420 Office All-in-One was announced last month at CES 2011, along with the Canon Pixma MX882 Office All-in-One and three other Pixma designed for the small office, home office (SOHO) market in mind.

The Pixma MX420 is a step down from the flagship MX882 in both price and features but it still packs some punch for those customers looking for an AIO inkjet printer. The MX420 is a 4-in-1 device offering print, scan, copy and fax capabilities along with a 30-page ADF, a built-in memory card and wireless connectivity for less than $200.

Today, we’ll be taking a hands-on first look of the Pixma MX420 with information on build, design, specifications, pricing and plenty of photos from our test lab. Need more information? Come back soon for our full review of the Canon Pixma MX420 Office All-in-One!
