Canon MX 700 Copier

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

My daughter needed a dependable copier for a project and the Canon was purchased 2 years ago. CNET gave it a 4-star rating, because it was missing the duplex features. However, reversing and turning the pages over is not a problem and the print quality is excellent on both sides. In fact, we keep a stack of used paper for copying that will end up being faxed or used for other purposes. The price was $500, as it was also a printer/scanner. It's dark gray with a simple metallic edge line and is a solidly built machine. There's a cover over the automatic document feeder that keeps that area free of dust. It will accommodate 30 originals and sizes can vary from a small invoice to an 8 x 14. I have copied poor-resolution school transcripts and the Canon actually improved their clarity, because the copying performance is enhanced by controls to allow enlarging and reducing, as well as adjustments for contrast and resolution. This machine has been been reliable, and performed many times better than expected, with only an occasional paper jam, and that happened because we weren't careful to insert the clean media straight. As long as the original is put in the ADF, there are no problems with the machine and at times, it is difficult to distinguish the original from the copy. The only problem seems to be inserting media in the rear document feeder. It doesn't seem to have a proper guide to feed the media through and envelopes will sometimes print at an angle. We have never used any heavy-duty media for the rear document feeder and can't say how it performs in that respect.
