The PIXMA MX700 Office All-in-One Printer delivers quality output by using a maximum of 4800 X 1200 color dots-per-inch (dpi) resolution and four individual ink tanks for long-lasting prints and laser-sharp documents. Printing and copying speeds of up to 30 pages per minute (ppm) in black and 20 ppm in color gets any job done quickly. Need to connect this printer to a network Ethernet connectivity allows for multiple workstations in the same small office to benefit from the advanced features of the PIXMA MX700 Office All-in-One Printer.

In the small office environment, efficiency can directly impact the bottom line. These new models feature the Canon Quick Start capability. The Quick Start feature allows the user to start using the AIO in a matter of seconds, rather than waiting up to two minutes for the product to warm up. Now users can press the power button and watch their AIO start up almost immediately, without long delays between pressing the power button and actually seeing the user interface on the screen. With an improved, faster 30-page Auto Document Feeder (ADF), business documents can be scanned and copied in a flash.

The PIXMA MX700 Office All-in-One Printer is the quintessential small office workhorse. The copy function features new Advanced Copy Technology to master the most common copy needs. This copy technology allows users to easily erase the frame created around a small scan, trim any desired area on the original to be copied, and even white-out an unwanted area of the original before copying it- all right from the control panel. Super G3 fax technology3 transmits faxes very quickly for even greater efficiency. All this adds up to increased productivity in the office and fast quality output for business documents as well as photos.
