The below video will show you printing, scanning and copying function in action. However, before you make your choice, you shall evaluate other factors like below:
1. Warranty period
2. Running cost (printhead and ink cost per ml)
3. Upgradability (Can your MFP separate into 2 devices to suite your future operations needs, can you upgrade your scanner to higher end model if your copying and scanning job increase.)


A guide to choose the right large format MFP

It has been awhile, since the debut of affordable large format multifunction printer, namely HP Designjet T830 and follow with Canon iPF770MFP (iPF771MFP in certain Asia regions) and Canon iPF670MFP (iPF671MFP in certain Asia regions), the criteria of selection has diverted from the printer true performance and user friendliness assessment to specifications comparisons. 

The potential buyers these days seldom evaluate good quality printers like HP Design T930, T790, or Canon iPF831, iPF780 (iPF781) and iPF785 (iPF786) because the focus has shifted to the add-on large format scanner or the integrated scanner.

Users need to understand their requirements before starting to shop for plotters or large format MFPs.

Are you looking for a plotter or technical document scanner or large format MFP?

This can be determined by needs evaluations.
1. Printing volume  (light, medium, heavy)

Some guideline for users looking for large format MFPs as below
