Canon PIXMA MX300 Driver Download & Installation Manual

Canon PIXMA MX300 can be a great choice if you want a premium result printer, but this printer is only a good choice for low-volume use because the cost of the ink can be fairly expensive. It comes with a tray which can hold 150 sheets of paper, and the output tray can hold up to 50 sheets of paper. You can do duplex printing too but it requires manual operation. But you can also use the onscreen prompt as a guide through the process.

The connectivity for this Canon MX300 is very limited. You can find a port in front of this printer to print files directly from a device that has PictBridge. You can also save your scanned files to a USB key drive. And Canon also provides a Bluetooth adaptor sold separately. The control panel for this printer is fairly well designed. You can easily find all the control button and the addition of LCD for showing menu is very helpful.

With a cheap price however, this printer doesn’t have the quick speed necessary for some work. For a page full of text, Canon PIXMA MX 300 can produce around 7 to 8 pages in a minute and the top graphics speed is 4.5 ppm.
