Great Printer Lasted 7 Years

I bought a PIXMA MX870 printer 7 years ago and it still works fine. I like the auto-duplex feature, especially printing. The scanner produces high-quality documents and photos in the copy and import functions. The use of ink seems to be lower than some of the other printers that I have. I use the printer every day and have done a number of large print jobs (more than 7,000 pages).

The printing quality is the best I’ve ever seen on a printer. I have found that if I print duplex, there are fewer problems with long-term bleeding with at least 28 lb of paper. There are some amazing features on this printer. Glad that you can print blank staff paper for musical composition. The ink dries quickly.

I like to have this product for 7 years or more, still like a pro and it works really well, it’s easy to set up just follow it.
