Canon MX340 Overview

  • 1Description

The Canon PIXMA MX340 All-In-One Photo Printer produces gorgeous color prints (up to 8.5 x 11") at up to 4800 x 1200 dpi resolution, scans documents or images up to 8.5 x 11.7" at 48-bit color depth, makes color copies in as little as 37 seconds, faxes at approx. 3 sec/page (black) or 1 min/page (color) with a 50-page memory, and offers wireless connectivity--plus, its compact good looks mean it fits in just about anywhere. The Auto Photo Fix II feature automatically corrects exposure to optimize the quality of your pictures, and you can also print laser-quality black text or pages directly off the web. The ChromaLife100+ system enables your photos to last up to 300 years when using genuine Canon ink and paper and stored in an archival-quality photo album.

Speed & Quality
High Resolution: Superb quality and detail in business documents and photos is achieved by 4800 x 1200 maximum color dpi thanks to Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) with a patented print head firing ink droplets as small as 2pl.

High Performance Ink Cartridges: The two Canon ink cartridges are easy to use and to replace, and contain specially formulated inks for great document and photo quality. One is a black cartridge for laser-quality text and one is a multi-color cartridge for pictures. Both are easy to use and replace.

EasyPhoto-Print EX: Print as many images as you want on photo paper up to 8.5 x 11". You can even print multiple pictures on one page. Plus, with one touch of your mouse, EasyPhoto-Print automatically crops images, corrects red-eye, smoothes facial lines and skin tone and even brightens and sharpens faces.

Ease of Use
Auto Photo Fix II: This built-in technology automatically categorizes your images into one of five types--Portrait, Scenery, Night Scenery, Snapshot with Scenery, and Snapshot with Night Scenery--then applies optimal image and multi-zone exposure correction. Unexposed areas of the photo will be optimized area by area, and faces that are backlit and under-exposed will automatically be brightened and color corrected to help ensure more accurate skin tones for gorgeous images.

Fully-Integrated Auto Document Feeder: The built-in 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) makes it easy to copy, scan or fax multiple documents without having to load them one at a time. Its full integration makes it easier to fit into tight spots.

Dual Color Gamut Technology: This built-in technology automatically optimizes your originals so copies stay true to it, time after time.

Auto Scan Mode: Automatically recognizes the type of original, then scans and saves with the appropriate settings when accessed through the printer menu.

QuickStart: Powering up your printer is now faster than ever. After pressing the power button you can begin inputting commands in approximately 2 seconds.

Easy-WebPrint EX: Print as many images as you want on photo paper up to 8.5 x 11". You can even print multiple pictures on one page. Plus, with one touch of your mouse, EasyPhoto-Print automatically crops images, corrects red-eye, smoothes facial lines and skin tone and even brightens and sharpens faces.

Built-In Wireless: Print or scan wirelessly from any Wi-Fi enabled computer around the house.

Super G3 Fax: The business fax standard for color and PC facsimiles on plain paper meets the home office workhorse with 20 coded speed dials and up to 50 incoming pages.

    Canon MX340 Reviews

    PIXMA MX340 Wireless All-In-One Photo Printer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works, but difficult setup. Once setup, the printer works well over wifi. Setting it up is a pain, and I am a very tech savvy user. The user documentation and included software are poorly designed. Moreover, the printer does not have true duplex printing or scanning contrary to what I have read about the device. It requires the user to pull the printed pages, rotate them, then place in the printing tray for the other side of the pages to be printed. Many printer/fax/ settings can only be accessed on a tiny one-line lcd screen requiring cumbersome scrolling and jumping in and out of menus to make needed changes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let others decide for you. I have been using this product for only 3 weeks, but it surpasses my expectations given the specifications and cost.. I am still exploring all of the features, but so far I find very little to complain about. Clear printing, good photo copying, and excellent faxing (you may want to download extra cover sheets). You don't even hear the machine printing when set to quite mode. I have owned 4 Epsons and I have one other Canon, and this machine uses less ink of them all with the same or better quality printing. The display could use a backlight and the setup instructions could be made more comprehensive, but once the setup is complete, this is a good buy. Novices may have a little difficulty with the setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of bang for the buck This is my first all in one printer so I can't compair it to any other, but I do really like it. I couldn't believe you can buy a printer that can print, scan, copy and fax and all wirelessly. I only use it for home use so I don't really need to use it that much, but it's great to be able to print from any where in the house. If I had to say what is the thing I like lease about it I would have to say that it makes a lot of noise. Not when it's printing but before and after. I guess it's cleaning the printer heads or something. It reminds me of Epson printers. With those printers it seems like your always having to clean the heads. That drove me nuts. Any way it is a very nice printer especially for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cannon MX 340 revies I previously owned several HP All-In-One printers, and decided to try this Cannon product after seeing the fax function quit on the HP printers following any type of power spike. Set up took a while as you have to go step by step through the manual. The program installs 6 shortcuts on your desktop. (not all of them are needed) I have not tried to fax anything, but the print quality looks good, and the printer only requires 2 ink cartridges. It is a bit noisy, but the price was good, and the printer seems to be well made and should last.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great bargain - great photos, text, easy We wanted to replace an ancient ink jet for infrequent text printing. Reviews pointed to this all in one as being able to meet that need and many others for us. When we got it, we found it easy to set up on the wireless at home. It talks to my Mac and our PCs. Out of the box photo quality was awesome. Text, scanning ... so far all good. The only thing I don't like is the paper tray - up in the back. With paper loaded, the printer seems open. Only when the paper is removed and the feed tray closed does the printer appear slick and neat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time with a Canon I've had HP printers for years, this is my first Canon. It was easy to set up, even the WIfi. My biggest problem so far, is finding the right paper. So far my old HP photo paper doesn't seem to work too well with it, but maybe I haven't figured out the right setting yet either, so it may not be the machines fault. I haven't tried the Fax machine part yet, as I rarely need to send a fax. For the price this has been a great printer. As for the paper issue, I haven't tried actual Canon paper yet, so maybe that will solve my problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Canon PIXMA MX340 Set-up was quick and easy and so far so good after about 2 months of use. It is used as a general purpose printer on a wireless home network and is exactly what I wanted for this job. Wireless connectivity is reliable throughout the house and print quality is good. I have a dedicated photo printer (PIXMA Pro 9000 MkII)so this one is used for general printing of documents to save expensive ink. The scanner function is adequate for documents and low-res photo scanning as well. Too early to tell how long ink will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Great All-In-One Printer!! Unless you had the bad luck of receiving one DOA. This is a great printer. I purchased two about 6 months ago from ... Ive done over a hundred wireless printer installs and this was very simple.I would like to warn people that when installing any wireless printer its almost always better to ignore the instructions. Their terrible, instead connect the printer to your wireless through the printers setup (on the printer itself). Then use the printers software to detect and set it up. (Custom setup is a good idea as well, you can uncheck installing anything you won't use). Pros: Ink lasts a long time and is cheap compared to some. Hi Res. Quick. Quiet. Document Feeder. Wireless that works!Cons: None so far except its not a laser...Great printer at a great price! Thanks B&H!!
