I swore I would never post another deal because of the trolls on here who don't look at a deal but follow the herd. But this is too good to miss.

Review from Which: "This wi-fi-equipped Canon printer is remarkably speedy when it comes to churning out text documents, and it could be yours for a bargain price. The budget-priced Canon Pixma MX535 flew through our tests thanks to sharp colour prints, fast scans and automatic double-sided printing, which will help you save paper. You can print from an Apple device using AirPrint, or from a laptop or PC with Google CloudPrint. This is a cheap, proven Best Buy printer that'll fit nicely in your home office".

Hot at that price, I think, especially if your priorities are office use. Starting with the negatives I cobbled the below together from several review sites, links here techspot.com/pro…14/

Noisy. Comparatively large foot print when running. A little slow when printing, especially so with text when using duplex facilities, aimed more at office duties rather than photo printing, gets marked down, comparatively, on photo quality (though not all reviews seem to agree on that one) and time taken (though this was when tested at £100). PC Welt said: "In printing, the Canon Pixma MX535 does a solid job: text has a good black coverage, colors are bright, although slightly overdone in red and blue. Our test scans are slightly bright and again too reddish and bluish. At the same time they quickly lose their sharpness in depth. Nevertheless, the quality is perfect for office use." They said print costs even with the XL cartridge are comparatively high. No memory card support or printing from USB. Uses a single combination cartridge for colour. What I like about PC Welt reviews is they grade each feature's quality rating in a chart at the end of the review.

What they liked was that though they found print speeds to be mixed, they said "The Canon Pixma MX535 works particularly well in text printing on standard paper, really fast." They also said scanning speeds are impressive. Power draw was comparatively low. For me, that makes it a great second printer, as most of what I do is scanning and printing text. One site mentioned that Canon do well for reliability (though I don't have this model, my Canons are still going strong, fewer jams than my Epson and HP units). If I find cheap ink options, I might have to get this. Thanks OP!

If I find cheap ink options,


just refill originals

Duplex printing? States single sided printing on the currys website.

I can't be bothered phaffing around with refill kits any more, though the colours with the refill packs that I used to get from Costco, long ago, were poor for colour matching compared to the cheap-enough third party cartridges that I now use. But yes, that's one option if you can source consistently good inks and I even used to enjoy the satisfaction of doing it, up to a point. Whatever works.
