The $150 (as of April 16, 2012) Canon Pixma MX512 inkjet multifunction printer (copy/fax/print/scan) is a bit of a mixed bag. Print quality--aside from color graphics on plain paper, which suffered from an excess of orange--seemed very good. Output speeds were easily fast enough for a home office, and the unit sports Wi-Fi as well as an automatic duplexer. On the other hand, the control panel is inefficient and black ink is expensive. We had no trouble setting up the Pixma MX512, which offers triple-threat connectivity--USB, ethernet, and Wi-Fi. Canon provides its usual stable driver and software bundle, which includes OCR and many photo-publishing features. MS, MS Duo, Secure Digital, and USB/PictBridge ports are provided for offloading scans and direct photo printing. The Windows printer properties dialog is exceptionally well laid-out, placing all the basic options on the main tab. (The Mac dialog follows the same inefficient multipage template that Apple forces on everyone.) But while its software is nicely designed, the Pixma MX512's control panel has a Rube Goldberg aspect to it--and that's being a bit harsh on Rube's designs, which, though comically convoluted, are not confusing.
The Canon Pixma MX512 Wireless Office All-in-One ($149.99 direct) is essentially the same printer at its core as the Canon Pixma MX432 Wireless Office All-in-One ($99.99 direct, 2.5 stars). However, it includes lots of extras to justify the higher price, most notably a network connector and print duplexer (for printing on both sides of a page). Like the MX432, it's a potentially good fit for a home or micro office or as a personal printer in any size office. But even more than the MX432, it is best reserved for light-duty printing only, because in addition to costing more to buy, it shares the same high running cost. The MX512 is part of Canon's office inkjet line. Its basic MFP capabilities include printing and faxing from, as well as scanning to, a PC—including over a network—and working as a standalone copier and fax machine. Office-centric features include a 30-page automatic document feeder (ADF), which supplements the letter-size flatbed and can handle both multipage documents and legal size pages. For the dual role of home and home office printer, the MX512 also includes such photocentric features as being able to print directly from a PictBridge camera or memory cards, plus a 2.5-inch LCD display for previewing photos before printing.
