- FIVE – Page handling
Its automatic document feeder could only handle upto 30 pages at a time, so, a majority of your blank media goes through the rear input tray that holds 100 pages, and a plastic guide folds out of the rear tray to cajole larger media. Output, on the other hand, is a much more simplified process: all outbound prints just pop out of the front drawer on to an angled lip that folds out of the main body.
- FOUR – Two-ink cartridge
The top of the printer lifts open to reveal the standard 21.6x27.9cm scanner bay, but you could also pop that open and access the two-ink cartridge bay below. To keep the cost of the printer low, Canon MX330 printer uses two-ink cartridges: one for black and one for tricolors. You could prefer five or sometimes even six separate cartridges tanks to cut down the cost of consumables.
- THREE – Driver
The printer package includes a driver CD with all installation files you need to customize your prints. Within those settings, you could choose between commonly used templates like standard, business, paper saving, and photo printing that adjust the type of media, paper size and source. The driver provides you with adjustments for border-less printing, vivid photos, grayscale prints, and even manual color intensities.
- TWO – Creative features
The driver automatically installs Canon's Easy Photo Print EX software in your system that boasts of all creative features of MX330. It lets you print simple snapshot photos on-the-fly, create albums of artwork, print calendars with custom pictures, and custom stickers using Canon's proprietary sticker paper. The explorer window on the main page works like a Windows Explorer pane.
- ONE – Copy functions
The copy functions of Canon MX330 printer are relatively a standard for all multifunction devices. You could print upto 99 copies at once and easily adjust the contrast and magnification of a document from 25% to 400%, all directly through adjusting the settings on LCD menus.
