The Canon PIXMA MX397 is a reliable all-in-one printer that can print between 400 pages (colored) and 800 pages (mono) per ink cartridge, so your cartridges can last longer between refills. You can load up to 30 sheets of regular A4 paper for scanning and copying, and its FastFront feature ensures easy refilling or replacement of your ink cartridges or loading of paper for your next print. You can get print speeds from between 5 ipm (color) to 8.7 ipm (mono), and it can print a 4×6 photo in a mere 46 seconds. At a maximum resolution of 4800×1200 dpi, you are ensured of high image and document quality. Like any all-in-one printer, you can copy, fax, and scan images and documents with ease, and it also comes with My Image Garden software, which creates various collages and calendars using the photos stored on a PC and suggests them to the user.
