When Canon announced its new office line of all-in-one inkjet printers at CES 2010, it also introduced the single function Canon Pixma iP2702. Next to the fancy Pixma MX870 and the durable Pixma MX350, the Pixma iP2702 might not pop, but it has a place in Canon’s lineup for a reason.

BUILD AND DESIGN
The Canon PIXMA iP2702 is the definition of a sleek, compact single function printer. The body is done in a sophisticated matte black with the folding rear tray in a glossy black. There is a small Canon logo on the front of the printer and a Pixma logo with the iP2702 model number above that.
The Pixma iP2702 features a rear loading tray found by flipping open the glossy panel on the top of the printer. The iP2702 can print a variety of media, including photo paper, letter, legal and envelopes, and ranging in size from 4 x 6 inches to 8.5 x 11 inches.
Lift the front of the unit up just under the Canon logo to access the inside of the printer. The iP2702 takes two Canon FINE cartridges, the Canon PG-210 black and the Canon CL-211 multicolor, which are included in the packaging. Users can also purchase high capacity cartridges, the PG-210 XL black and the CL-211 XL color.
