The Canon PIXMA MG5765 is an attractive printer with a matte black finish and a low-profile chassis that won't take up too much room in your work space. The exact measurements for the device are 18 inches wide, 14.6 inches deep, and 5.9 inches tall, and with no auto-document feeder in the back, you can push this printer all the way flush with a wall and keep it out of the way until you need it.
Like most Canon consumer inkjet printers, the 2,400x1,200 dots per inch (dpi) flatbed scanner sits on top of the printer and lifts up by a small indented lip on the lid. You get the standard 8.5 by 11.7 inches of space to work with here, and the company generously provides two articulating hinges on the back that let you raise the lid and fold it over extra-thick media like textbooks.
As the multifunction moniker describes, the Canon PIXMA MG5765 also functions as a copier, but it lacks a tray that normally lets you drop in stacks of paper for hands-free scanning, also known as an auto-document feeder, or ADF. That's not unusual since this is a consumer photo printer, so check out the Canon PIXMA MG5765 inkjet if you need more business-friendly features.
With its single-sheet feed tray, you can either duplicate an existing sheet or copy one sheet at a time using the scanner, which could be an immediate deal breaker if you make a lot of copies. If that's the case, stop reading here and check out some office-friendly all-in-one inkjets that will still provide excellent print quality, but which usually offer more convenient extras designed with productivity in mind.
The basic set up of the printer is super easy and requires little effort, especially if you start with the standard USB connection that helps you install the drivers onto a computer with a hard connection. I was able to get it connected to our test desktop computer here running Windows Vista in minutes.
