Printer Review: Canon MP640|

Canon's entry-level multifunction device adds duplex printing and picks up the speed.
It's just a little bigger than the MP620 we called "quite a deal" in our review (http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRINT/MP620/MP620.HTM) a year ago, but a new print head design makes the new MP640 much faster. Canon has also added duplex printing to the MP620, bumping the price up just a bit.
But that's not all that's new and improved with the MP640, we found out. Canon has also streamlined both the print head alignment process and wireless network setup for this unusually capable entry-level device.
About all we're left wishing for is a touch screen but meanwhile the scroll wheel will do.
