The Basics

The Canon PIXMA MP620 all-in-one is actually a small printer at approx. 18 lbs.  Its dimensions are 14.5″ x 17.7″ x 6.9″ (when not in use) so it doesn’t take up a gross amount of space like some multifunction printers.  It also has built-in Wi-Fi so there aren’t ten tangled cords sticking out the back.

It’s a pretty modern looking exterior mostly done in silver with black edging and a black control panel.  All of the paper trays fold into the printer to keep it compact when not in use.  There are two main paper trays: a front loading tray for regular paper and a rear tray that pops up for photo paper. 

The front loading tray can hold up to 150 pages of paper and the rear photo tray can hold up to 20 4×6-inch sheets of photo paper. 

Above the front tray, the MP620 folds out a third tray where the finished prints appear. On the right side of that, there is another small compartment that has three different sized memory card slots. 

The MP620 is compatible with SD Memory Card, SDHC, Micro SD, MultiMedia Card (v4.1), MultiMediaCard Plus (v.4.1), RS-MMC, Compact Flash Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo, xD-Picture Card, xD-Picture Card (Type M) and xD-Picture Card (Type H).  It can also be used with mini memory cards but you’ll need an adapter.

There is also a PictBridge port below the memory card slots.

The pop-up 2.5” LCD and control panel is located on top of the MP620.  The control panel consists of 16 buttons.  They are labeled/used for: power, navigation, home, back, four arrow keys, scroll wheel, OK/enter, two option keys, copies plus, copies negative, black, color and stop.

If you lift the top up, you’ll find the scanner/copier area.   Its dimensions are approx. 8 ½ x 12 inches. 

If you lift the scanner/copier area, you’ll find yourself looking at the inside of the machine.  This is where you load the five individual ink cartridges.

The power cord is connected on the back left side.  If you plan on connecting the MP620 to your network or personal computer through a wired connection, the USB port is located on the back right side.

The Canon Pixma MP620 Photo All-In-One printer is a nice-looking, compact machine for $149.99.  It gives the user a ton to work with and I’m looking forward to testing it fully.  Check out our full review to get the dirt on the MP620.
