[Review]Canon MAXIFY MB5470: Maximising Print Productivity
Adding to its range of MAXIFY multifunction printers, the Canon MAXIFY MB5470 is an inkjet printer that small offices and businesses should take note off. The sleek black body of the printer is certainly appealing, and further complemented by its small footprint.
The MB5470 delivers fast print speeds: printing a 30-page monochrome report was done in about a minute with minimal warm-up. It comes equipped with a wider print head, and this is paired with a unique overlapping paper feeding technology. The printer draws the second sheet to be printed and overlaps it with the first sheet, which increases the print speed.
True to Colour
The MB5470 delivers more than just crisp and darker than black ink printouts, its coloured printing is no lightweight either. The colours are vibrant without oversaturating the paper. While the first printout for colour takes a little longer but significantly faster than its competitors. At most, you’ll have to wait for 10 seconds before it comes out.
What I found to be a boon for the MB5470 is how easy it was to set-up. Connecting a new printer and have it seen across the network – especially wirelessly – can be a pain in the arse. The instructions provided were more than sufficient for me to set it up as a network printer via Wi-Fi connectivity quickly and swiftly.
Thanks to its Quick First Print technology, the first printout is ready in just 6 seconds.
