Available in black or white, the Pixma MX492 design is more rectangular to some extent compared to the previous models. Also, this affordable all-in-one printer appears bolder and sturdier in contrast to the sleek and modern feel of the forerunners. Moreover, it is 30% smaller than its predecessor.
The Pixma MX492 is designed for environments where space is limited, but it does not skimp on important features. It retains most of the office-centric multifunction printer features you would expect. This includes an automatic document feeder, borderless photo printing and yes, it even has fax! It churns out prints at 8.8 images per minute for black and white and 4.4 ipm for color which is considerably fast especially in the price point.

Besides wireless printing for Android mobile devices and computers, this color multifunction printer also supports Apple AirPrint. It even has Canon’s Pixma Printing Solutions that lets you access content from cloud services like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Dropbox, Google Drive without a computer. You can also create a direct wireless connection with any mobile device, without having to log onto the network first using the printer's Access Point Mode.
