Canon PIXMA MP280
All-In-One Inkjet Printer

Going to college for the first time is a daunting endeavor. The largest impact of this event is the dent that tuition, books, and living expenses place on your pocket book. A common necessity amongst college students that can help provide a marginal advantage is having a versatile and affordable printer. In the run up to the start of the fall semester, snatching up the best deal you can find is a must do. This week, that best deal is the Canon PIXMA MP280. It is a modest, yet fully loaded machine that exceeds the needs of a first time college student without breaking the bank.

Printing, scanning, and copying are essential functions not only in an office, but in a dorm room too. The fact that you can have an all-in-one printer that meets these needs for under $50 is something to celebrate.

With compatible PG210XL and CL211XL remanufactured cartridges (@ $17.95 for Black and $21.95 for color) the cost of printing is only 4 cents per page for black and 6 cents per page** for color.

User Reviews: ***
  • "Easy to set up, easy to use, good quality, great price!
  • "This printer is absolutely great! I am a total mess when it comes to hooking up electronics but this was very easy to install and I was able to do it myself without anyone's help!
  • "Easy to set up and use, scanned photos and text come out extremely sharp. Standard printing using medium weight 24 pound paper is clear and easy to read. All in all when you consider the price, I highly doubt that you will find a more capable printer.
