The Canon Pixma MX420 will suit those looking for a cheap all-round multifunction printer. While this is a 4-in-1 printer, the fact that it's an entry-level machine means certain features such as double-sided printing are missing and the quality of photo prints won't be good enough for more demanding users. It will, nevertheless, make a good fall-back solution.
