Canon Pixma MP830
The Canon Pixma MP830 offers the same photo and paper handling capabilities as the MP510, but offers faster page and photo printing, copying and fax rates. It also offers a 3" color LCD for photo preview and editing as well. With an exceptionally tiny 1 picoliter drop rate, it offers exceptional detail and image resolution (Canon calls it a bubble jet print rather than an inkjet printer, probably for this very reason), and includes a built-in page duplexer for automating double-sided printing and copying.
The MP810 offers outstanding photo printing resolution, and can even scan 35mm negatives.
The MP830 can print or copy black pages at rates up to 30 ppm (29 for copying), and deals with color printing and copying at 24 ppm, with black-and-white resolution at 600x600 and color at 9600x2400 dpi. It offers a speedy 20 ppm for faxing, thanks in part to its 33.6 kbps Super G3 fax modem. The MP830 supports the same kinds of memory cards as the MP510, and includes the same software bundle, though it does an even better job with photo printing. Best prices for this unit start between $230 and $240, but it's well worth the outlay.
Consumable for the MP830 are the same price as those for the MP510, with black cartridges priced from $14 (plain black) to $16 (pigment black for photo use), and $14 for individual cyan, magenta and yellow ink tanks. As before, numerous bundles a photo papers are also available for use with this printer.
