Canon Pixma MX420

RH Numbers

Perhaps more often thought of as a photo all-in-one producer, Canon’s range of MX machines are well suited to plain paper documents. The Pixma MX420 includes a 30-sheet ADF, a 62mm colour LCD and slots for memory cards and PictBridge, so photos aren’t left out. A single, 100-sheet plain paper tray at the back is the only paper source. I saw 9.6ppm and 5.3ppm for ISO black and colour print, both quite quick and refreshingly better than Canon’s claims. Duplex print is supported. Print quality is excellent, with sharp, dense black and bright colours, though running costs, at 3.6p for black and 8.4p for colour, are nothing special.

Dell V715w

RH Numbers

Most of Dell’s inkjet all-in-ones are made by Lexmark and you can see the heritage in this one, with its slightly flared case, leading up to an ostentatious, 50-sheet ADF. The fixed control panel offers a 61mm colour LCD, together with a numeric pad for fax and there are sockets for memory cards and USB/PictBridge print. There’s a single, 150-sheet paper tray with no separate photo feed, though duplex print is supported. I saw print speeds of 6.5ppm and 3.6ppm for ISO black and colour, both uninspiring, and running costs of 4.3p for black and 11.5p for colour are high, too. Print quality is OK on plain and photo documents.
