Printer Test Canon Pixma MX 925

The Canon Pixma MX 925 proves to be a classic all-in-one printer, which should make a good impression in the office. With a total of 5 ink tanks, it is not only suitable for photographs, but can also handle high print volumes, as XL or XXL ink cartridges can be retrofitted at any time. But the Canon Pixma MX 925 surprises with its unique appearance - Canon has taken the form of a rounded cube.

The look of the Canon Pixma MX 925

If you look at Canon's classic printers, you will see that the Canon Pixma MX 925 has a different design. While the rest of Canon printers are all kept very uniform and rectangular, this printer has the shape of a cube. Although the printer is not completely square, it is noticeable by the increased height and the rounded corners.

It is particularly striking that the operating elements of the printer are not below a hinged display, but are mounted directly on the front. There are not only haptic buttons, but also LED buttons and its own color display with a diagonal of 7.5 cm. The LED buttons have the special feature that they are double-assigned. Depending on the printing option, the design and function of a button changes - so simple operation is required for the Canon Pixma MX 925.

The paper itself is inserted in paper feeders. The printer has two paper trays. The lower cassette is called a closed paper cassette. The printer paper can be inserted here up to a diameter of 300 g / m². But this is a special photo paper. Plain paper can be inserted in the lower cassette up to 105 gsm. The rear paper tray is designed exclusively for photo paper - here, too, a thickness of up to 300 g / m² is possible.

The printer has a special disc holder attached to the lower cassette. By means of this holder CDs, DVDs or BluRays can be recorded and subsequently printed. However, users should make sure that a printable disc is also used. CDs or DVDs can not always be printed with their own motifs without destroying the data medium.

The printing technique of the Canon Pixma MX 925

The Canon Pixma MX 925 is listed as a pure inkjet printer. In doing so, the printer uses a FINE printhead, which is designed to bring the ink drop as small and narrow as possible onto the paper. The use? On the one hand, the paper does not soften, on the other hand it prevents the blurring of transitions. The printer itself has a resolution of 9,600 x 2,400 DPI. This means that both X-axis and Y-axis can print several thousand pixels per inch. As a result, coarse pixels can no longer be recognized - ideal for small font sizes or high quality photographs.

The company refers to the printer as a multifunction printer for the office. In an office, high demands are made, which is why the printing speed of this model must be high. In fact, the Canon Pixma MX 925 printer creates 15 ISO pages per minute in shades of gray. 10 pages per minute are achieved if documents in color want to be printed. When printing on photo paper, the printer creates a 10 x 15 cm image in just under 21 seconds - so it depends on most other Canon printers.

A special feature: The model can work with duplex printing. This means documents can be scanned and printed on both sides without users having to change paper. This saves time and increases productivity in the office.

The color of the Canon Pixma MX 925

The print quality is typical for Canon. With a resolution of 9,600 x 2,400 DPI, the printer can work very precisely. Especially close-ups are razor-sharp, which is why the device is ideal for photo printing. Photographic printing usually uses special photo papers. These are irradiated with ink, which ultimately results in the image. A big feature of the Canon Pixma MX 925 is the fact that the printer works with its own XL and XXL ink cartridges.

While the normal black ink cartridge already creates 2,000 prints, the XXL cartridge can create up to 7,500 pages without having to change the cartridges.
In the case of colored prints, this number decreases a bit but can still score in every office. Colored documents can be printed between 300 and 700 times. Photos, however, the printer creates nearly 200 pages with a XXL ink cartridge.

The special features of the Canon Pixma MX 925

This can be done not only from a computer, but also from tablets, smartphones or other mobile devices. If desired, printing can also be started directly from the display. All you need to do is connect USB storage media to the printer - the appropriate interface is present.

Customer segment of the Canon Pixma MX 925

Generally, the printer is a model designed for the office. The print speed can keep up with current laser printers and the printer has the advantage that it dispenses with toner powder - so the printer can stand directly in the office with the employees, without causing a fine dust pollution. But even if the printer is ideal for the office, it can also make a good impression in the private household. Here, however, it only makes sense if a lot of private printing is done - regardless of whether it's photo printing or normal printing. In both cases, the price only becomes relative when the print volume increases.
