The Canon Pixma MX922 is a well-featured color inkjet multifunction printer that prints, scans, copies, and faxes. It's priced at about $200, which makes it a great choice for a moderately busy small or home office that wants to print good-looking documents and photos in addition to standard business needs. Its output quality is solid and its performance is fast, but its inks are a bit pricey.
Adding to the MX922's appeal are its built-in Wi-Fi and cloud printing capabilities, as well as its dual function panel and 35-sheet duplex auto document feeder that make it easy to manage multiple jobs and large scanning or copying tasks. It also has an SD card slot and a 4.3-inch touchscreen LCD for managing settings. The MX922's six-color Individual Ink System offers a high level of versatility and enables easy cartridge replacement.
In our tests, the MX922 printed text and monochrome newsletters at about 8.6 pages per minute on the PC and 8.1 ppm on the Mac. Full-color photographs printed about one every two minutes to glossy stock and about three a minute to plain paper. Copy speeds were a little slower than we expect to see in an office printer, but still a reasonable pace.
Setup was simple, although the initial install process required quite a few dialogs to click through. The MX922 comes with a solid suite of software, including Canon's veteran scanning utility and Image Garden for organizing and editing images. Its warranty is a year, which is better than the 90 days that many entry-level printers offer but isn't as generous as the three years that you can get with most of our top business-class picks.
