I have the Canon PIXMA mp500 All-in-One Printer for about three years now. The canon pixma mp500 is a photo inkjet printer it used the standard four color system, a flatbed scanner, and also a copier. The canon pixma mp500 is multifunction printer which also has the ability to print photos without having to be on the computer. The mp500 all in one printer is designed for families and photo hobbyists, but the down side of the canon pixma mp500 is that it does not have a fax machine feature in it, so this all in one is not making for the office. The printing speed is pretty good, the quality is okay for document printing but I would recommend getting a laser printer if you have many office documents to print but the printing for photos are amazing, the photos I print out look like it have been print professionally. The all in one printer is not a little machine, it is huge so if you need a portable printer this is not your machine, the printer itself weigh around 21 pounds. The LED screen is very useful when you are printing without a computer, the pixma mp500 have a usb located in front of the printer, you can insert a usb drive or a usb cable connect through your camera, and it can be printed directly without having to turning on the computer. Overall I would not recommend people getting this all in one printer, there are so many better options on the market today, that do a whole more for cheaper.
