Scanner may not capture larger images - leaves edge spacing up to 1/4"

Can be very ink-intensive - may exhaust cartridges up to twice as much as other all-in-one models

1 agrees

Manual duplex can be a hassle for two-sided printing - sheets must be flipped by the user each time

The PIXMA MX310 is an inexpensive general purpose all-in-one printer, scanner, copier and fax machine from Canon. Primarily designed for a small amount of home/home office use due to its slower speeds and small ink cartridges, the MX300 features barebone printer and connectivity options compared to more advanced models from Canon and comparable brands. The MX310 features only a single improvement over the PIXMA MX300, an improved scanner which strikes a middle ground between the MX300 and units over twice its price.

All Printers have something in common, not even your Canon Pixma MX310 can separate itself from this all encompassing trait. Printers need Ink. With the sensitivity of the quality hardware now found in your Canon Pixma MX310, it needs to be good Ink as well.

Nice enough print quality, but really eats up the ink. We only print 5 sheets a day (about 20% coverage or less) and we have to replace a black cartridge every month and color every 6 weeks. And like all cartridges, they're expensive. I trusted the Canon name, but never again.
