The Canon MX340 is the super printer of the Canon home office wireless all-in-one inkjets. This printer is aimed for the small home office area. This is my Canon PIXMA MX340 reviews. It features WiFi wireless and optional wireless printing from Bluetooth enabled phones. It has a 30 page full duplex document feeder and high speed fax capability. The 30-sheet ADF folds out and can hold up to 100 sheets. The maximum document size is 8.5 x 14 inches for copying, scanning, or faxing.

The look of the Pixma MX340 is sleek and curvy, with a gray and black design, with device quick keys. It has a front and back paper feeder that can hold 100 pages each and fold in while not in use. I thought that is a neat feature. The Canon is well designed and though this is at the lower end of Canon’s home office printers, it doesn’t feel flimsy or cheap.
This printer has two ink cartridges, one black and one tri-color. They are available in standard, and larger size. I would recommend using the larger size because they do last so much longer.
This Canon printer did very well with photo quality. Prints out better pictures than the drugstore prints by far. With the naked eye at a regular distance you cannot see any streaks or runs from the ink. If you look real close you may start seeing some runs. But this is a home office printer. This machine can print up amazing PDF, Power point, and Excel color presentations. This has been my Canon PIXMA MX340 Reviews. Overall I would definitely recommend this printer.
