It measures around  17.2 inches by 11.7 inches by 7.5 inches and 17.2 pounds, it’s the smallest, fastest and lightest printer in the Canon MX lineup. It is built for the college dorm room or the urban home office and small businesses, the MX492 doesn’t hold a ton of paper, only around 100 sheets, and it doesn’t offer many paper format options, it only goes from 4X6 to Legal-sized paper. The auto document feeder can only handle 20 pages at a time, so don’t expect to print your bulk documents on this printer in one sitting.

As for the ink, you only get two ink cartridges and only 1,280 nozzles, so don’t expect the device to produce an array of complex colors. The MX492 only goes up to 4800 by 1200 dpi. So your images will be very clear, but they won’t be as dynamic.

It does not have a touchscreen, but it is not necessary because you can access the device wirelessly, and it has a high-speed wireless USB port, but these are just some of the features that every new printer has. 

Although the speed of this printer is not the same as the speed of other Canon printers, it can be used for home use and small businesses. It can still print documents and scan, fax, and copy them. You can print borderless colour photos in 70 seconds. The MX492 only has two basic cartridges that will is cheap to replace.

Remote Computer/Copier/Printer Support

Remote Support Information

*Copier and Printer

We typically connect to your computer, which should be on the same network as the copier. This allows us to access the copier's Web Interface for more effective troubleshooting and to adjust any settings that may require modification or configuration.


We will explore various troubleshooting steps, and if the issue is related to the network, we may discuss it over the phone without remote access until we resolve the problem.

Machine Capability

Please confirm if your copier can still copy or print standalone (e.g., without any computer or network connection) to ensure we address your issue effectively. Complete this questionnaire to the best of your ability, and we will get back to you promptly to schedule remote support. Thank you for choosing our services, and we look forward to assisting you.
