Canon i-SENSYS MF525x Printer Driver for Windows, Mac OS, and LinuxIf you think that the all in one printer such as Canon i-SENSYS MF525x will not be able to give you the high-quality scanning result, you are totally wrong. This printer from Canon is one real example that there is an all in one printer that will give you the nice scanning output that you need.

For your information, this printer is an all in one printer from Canon. However, this printer is still able to give you the high-quality performance that you need. One example is from the scanning result. This Canon i-SENSYS MF525x is able to give you the maximum scanning resolution of 9600 dpi. That is a great number to get because of the enhanced scanning technology from this printer.

As an addition to that, the same thing is also applied for the printing and copying functions from this printer. Both of those functions have the maximum resolution that can reach 2400 dpi. Of course, that number is a bit average. However, if you compare that number with some other printers in the same class, you will notice that the resolution of this Canon i-SENSYS MF525x is higher than those printers that you compare out there.
