The affordable Canon PIXMA HOME OFFICE MX496 is ideal for everyday tasks at home. It allows you to easily share print, copy, scan and fax functions with a wide range of devices and is stylish and ultra-compact with a small footprint and fits into any environment. Aside from its compactness and low purchase costs, the model’s main appeal in Connect’s tests is its high-quality photo prints. Instead of automatic, Canon only uses manual duplex printing, but also allows borderless printing. However, according to the editors, those who print a lot of printers would be better off with a laser printer because it has significantly lower consumption costs and is not limited in its cartridge range. The optionally available XL inks enable you to print significantly more pages before the next replacement – this is ideal if you print frequently, but also saves up to 30% of costs per page compared to standard inks. On the equipment side, the Canon model boasts Wi-Fi and USB but lacks a LAN port. Download the Canon Print app from Canon and you can quickly and easily print wirelessly from smartphones and tablets. You can also print or scan to mobile devices over a WLAN (Wi-Fi) network – without a PC or Canon PIXMA HOME OFFICE MX496 driver installation. With Pixma Cloud Link you can quickly print photos from Facebook, Twitter or online photo albums; Documents and photos can be printed or scanned directly from a cloud service such as Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox, or they can also be scanned and sent directly as an email attachment – all without a PC.
