Canon PIXMA MX536 Driver and User Guide

Canon PIXMA MX536 Driver and User Guide For Windows, Mac, Linux – Another choice of the printer from Canon if you are looking for an office all-in-one printer is PIXMA MX536. With this printer, you only need to buy one machine to get four machines. Because this printer can also be used for a scanner, copier and also fax machine. When a not connected to a computer or devices, this printer can be a standalone scanner and copier machine. So if you choose this printer, you can save up more money and get much more in return.

Canon PIXMA MX536 uses a four color ink system with two cartridges. One cartridge for black ink and the other one for color ink. This system can be a little bothersome when it comes to change the cartridge when the ink runs out. Canon did not forget to add ADF feature for this model and also to make your work easier, it also has USB key which you can use to save the result from the scanner. But it is a shame that this printer cannot read the files from USB to print it directly.

But Canon added another feature for this Canon PIXMA MX536, which is AirPrint. With this feature, you will be able to print or scan files directly from various kind of devices as long as it is connected to the internet.
