Canon Pixma MX420 First Look

by Reads (6,460)


The control panel runs the length of the scanner lid with a 2.5-inch LCD in the middle next to a four directional navigation pad and numerical key pad. I’m not going to lie; I sort of miss the old Canon Easy Scroll Wheel. There are also 11 quick keys found to the left and right of the LCD.

Flip out the 100-sheet output tray and lift up underneath the scanner base to reveal the inside of the Pixma MX420. The Pixma MX420 uses a dual ink system with the PG-210 pigment black ink cartridge and the CL-211 dye-based multi-color ink cartridge. Canon also offers high capacity cartridges; the PG-210XL and the CL-211XL cartridges.

The built-in memory card reader is found to the right of the output tray with the front side USB/PictBridge port found directly below. The Pixma MX420 is compatible with the following media: SD, SDHC, MultiMediaCard, MultiMediaCard Plus, CompactFlash, Microdrive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo.

The 100-sheet rear tray folds out of the back of the Pixma MX420 and can be used with a variety of media ranging from 4×6 prints to legal sized documents.

All connections are found on the back of the Pixma MX420. The Pixma MX420 can be set up over a USB 2.0, Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection.

The Canon Pixma MX420 Office All-in-One inkjet printer is available now for the suggested retail price of $149.99 through Canon or authorized vendors.

Supplies and accessories are also available through Canon. A set of standard capacity ink cartridges will cost $36.98. Or get the high capacity combo pack which includes two high capacity ink cartridges as well as a 50-pack of 4×6 Glossy Photo paper for $49.99.


The Canon Pixma MX420 comes with a 1-year limited warranty with InstantExchange service standard.  Or purchase a Canon CarePak Extended Service Plan for $25 extra (not available in Wyoming or New Mexico).
