Canon Pixma MX920 Series Printer
The Canon Pixma Mx920 printer is an affordable multi-functional printer with automatic duplexing. It is an all in one printer with multiple functions like printing, scanning, faxing, and copying.
Canon’s Pixma is designed for Home-based consumers or home offices, so this printer is not for medium-sized businesses or large organizations. Canon Pixma Mx920 has a 250 sheet paper tray and up to 35 pages automatic document feeder.
The greatest strength of Canon Pixma Mx920 is that it can automatically print on both sides of the page. Automatic duplexing of this printer saves you money and paper and also it’s environment friendly.
Now another helpful feature of Canon Pixma Mx920 is that it is an automatic document feeder. This feature allows you to place a multi-page document on the tray, and it automatically scans each page.
Most of the printers had a monthly duty cycle rating, or we can say that there is a limit that how many pages a printer can print without being damages.
However, Canon Pixma does not have such ratings as Canon considers these printers as consumer-grade printers. Pixma Mx922 has no problem in printing 15 to 20 pages daily, but if you are printing for the whole day and every day then you have to look for some other better option.

Pixma Mx920 uses a 4 ink system and can give the best quality resolution to the documents and photos that are printed.
