The new Pixma printer from Canon offers "great quality" prints despite being slow and noisy, a reviewer has claimed.

James Hutchinson, writing for PC World, made the comments about the new machine which offers A4 and A3 prints as well as duplex connectivity.

The automatic duplex is a selling point for the device as it can print double sides of A4 and A3.

Mr Hutchinson stated that the only other printer to offer an automatic duplexer - Brother's MFC-6890 CDW - can only print A4 copies.

"Overall the A3 inkjet printer prints comparatively slowly, but can still spit out three to four A3 documents per minute, which is more than what some competitors can claim," he explained.

He added: "Unfortunately, the Canon PIXMA iX7000 is particularly noisy. It makes a noticeable bang whenever it retrieves a page from the cassette, which will become annoying in a quiet office environment."

The overall quality of the prints and speeds hold the printer back, Mr Hutchinson concluded.
