Epson ME101 vs Canon MP287/MP237 Printer Price and Specs Comparison

The Latest Epson ME101 All in One Printer - The Smallest A4 AiO Printer in the World

Latest products are usually improved from predecessors with features of ink efficient and affordability to delight and exceed vision of consumers looking for quality, durable and low cost peripheral device such as printers.

New Epson Expression ME101 are 15% space saver dubbed as the smallest desktop AiO printer and uses individual ink cartridges at much lower printer cost while the new Canon MP237 are software upgraded and at the same time at lower printer cost.

Canon Pixma MP287 vs MP237

The difference I see between Canon MP287 and new MP237 are addition of software such as My Image Garden and Print Your Days Facebook APP.

My Image Garden is a software that automatically creates various appealing collages and calendars using the photos stored on a PC to make suggestions to the user. Print your Days is an APP built into Facebook that let you print photos from Facebook directly to your Canon printer.

One reason I bought Canon MP287 is the scan resolution reaching up to 2400 dpi. If you scan a documents and print it, the difference between the original are unnoticeable.

But with the new Canon MP237, the scan resolution is lowered to 1200 dpi.
