In Pictures: Top 10 Inkjet MFPs

The latest inkjet multifunction printers, which combine a printer, scanner, copier, and (sometimes) a fax machine, often don't cost any more than a stand-alone printer. Our latest review of inkjet MFPs includes models that cost as little as $80; here are the highest-rated products from that review.

#1: Canon Pixma MP600 (Best Buy)

Tenaciously holding on to the top spot on our chart, this model prints high-quality text and photos. It has a duplexer and dual paper trays, but it offers no automatic document feeder and lacks film scanning. Our not-so-easily-impressed reviewer was very pleased with its rapid text-page printing speed, as it spat out 11.9 pages per minute. Full Review | Latest Prices

#2: Canon Pixma MP470

For this model's low price ($100), you get full photo capabilities and a 1.8-inch LCD, as well as good scanning, copying, and printing. True, almost any digital camera's LCD is larger than the MP470's--but then again, most digital cameras cost more than it does. Full Review | Latest Prices

#3: HP Photosmart C5280

This inkjet MFP deftly handles everyday copies and scans, and it delivers impressive photo printing and CD/DVD printing too. For the last function, you'll have to use specially coated discs and use Roxio software, but that's better than using adhesive labels, which almost always stick to anything but your disc.

#4: Canon Pixma MP960

A big LCD and a scroll wheel make the MP960 a snap to use. This MFP prints top-quality photos quickly, and it scans film. How big is the LCD? It's 3.5 inches, plenty large enough for you to see incriminating evidence without the aid of a PC. Full Review | Latest Prices

#5: Canon Pixma MP510

This basic multifunction printer has dual paper trays and produces high-quality photos, but its color LCD is small at 1.9 inches. It has a couple of in-printer photo editing functions, including "face brightening," for printing photos of people in dark moods. Full Review | Latest Prices

#6: Canon Pixma MP530

The MP530 combines several home-office functions in a single unit, but it prints digital photos only from your PC. It's one of the few MFPs on our chart that has a built-in fax machine, so you can receive reams of mortgage- and vacation-deal offers without the aid of a computer. Full Review | Latest Prices

#7: HP Officejet Pro L7680

Though more expensive than most inkjet MFPs, the L7680 provides small-office features for less than a color laser MFP costs. But if you're after a networked MFP, also consider the Photosmart C5180, which has ethernet and costs half as much. Full Review | Latest Prices

#8: Canon Pixma MP210

Jump at the Pixma MP210's low price only if you can tolerate a confusing control panel and rather sparse copy capabilities. Other Canon models cost just slightly more and offer better features: The second-ranked Pixma MP470, for example, has a small LCD and costs only $20 extra. Full Review | Latest Prices

#9: HP Photosmart C5180

Priced attractively for a networked MFP, the C5180 delivers nice photos, but it could do better on plain paper. It has built-in red-eye reduction, cropping, and framing capabilities. Full Review | Latest Prices

#10: Epson Stylus Photo RX580

This model is easy to use but offers no outstanding features to make up for its mediocre plain-paper print quality. It's very slow compared with the other MFPs we've evaluated--about four times slower than the fastest model in our tests. Full Review | Latest Prices
