Introduced as a multifunctional printer, the device can print, copy, scan, and even send and receive a fax. With higher price than MX452, this product adds just enough extras compared to its predecessor. Some of the remarkable additions are Ethernet port, Auto Duplex, LCD for panel menu at the front side, and a feature that allow you to print from a USB memory key. All of these additional features make the machine much more suitable for either home and home business printer or small office printer.

With both Ethernet and Wi-Fi as its connectivity, Canon PIXMA MX522 can be used as a shared printer. It means you can print your documents from anywhere without having to connect your computer to the printer via a cable. But unfortunately, due to its limited paper capacity, only up to 100 sheets, you may need to refill your printer frequently if you are working in a hectic office. Another useful feature from this product is its Auto Duplex. This feature allows you to print on both sides of the paper and cut some paper cost.

As for its setup, Canon PIXMA MX522 is pretty much standard fare. What this product is lacking is its speed. For its price, this printer is not any faster than its predecessor, which has a lower rate. This printer can only handle up to 2.1 pages per minute. For output quality, however, it does a lot of better than MX452. It has a better text quality than most inkjet multifunctional printers. As for graphics, it has similar quality compared to its competitor. For photos, this printer is slightly below average, but just enough especially for home use or small office works.

Canon PIXMA MX522 can be perfect if only it has the higher paper capacity and better speed. Nevertheless, with its output quality for text and graphic, and the all-in-one features that are offered, this product is pretty much balanced. If you are a perfectionist, the results of the print jobs may be slightly disturbing for you. But for standard graphics and PowerPoint printing, these devices give a high performance. Since the photo quality is not as good as expected, for those who like to print photos may want to reconsider their decision to buy this product. Overall, this product is just enough for those who have light0duty print jobs at home or office. Canon Pixma MX522 Driver, Wireless Setup, Install, Software
