I've met some radiologists/medical experts working in Japanese hospitals that don't have a University qualification. When I asked about licensing they were quite vague about it.

Japanese sensei is a great product. It's 1200yen, a bit expensive but an awesome deal because of the different games and ways you can study the words. You get to review them over and over in different ways. You study a lesson, and learn 10 words at a time, then there are some tests. After you complete a lesson you can play the particles quiz, order the sentences, memory test, words quiz, matching game. You can review the vocabulary in a variety of different ways. There's also audio for each word and sentence. It shows you how often you got the word correct or not also.

Glad to help. I agree lasers better, but it's too expensive I think.

I have the Pixus MP640, and highly recommend it. The Pixus MP640 also has a CD printing tray (Maybe the MX870 has it as well). In the States the don't supply the tray in the box, but the Japanese version comes with a USB cable, the CD tray, a power cable, some sample photo paper, the ink cartridges and the software CD.

The top bed scanner is great. Everything also closes away nicely so there's no open bits for extra dust to get in. I think the only bad reviews have been are the ink runs out faster because the cartridges are smaller (there's 5). But the ink is cheaper than other printer inks I've seen, only 980yen at Biccamera. I haven't gone through my ink cartridges yet but so far no feeding problems, no smudging, and even the draft (fast) copy looks really good.

Also, check out the Canon website, you can view the Japanese site (search for Pixus MX870 in Google), and look for スペシャルサイト on the right hand side, you can watch a short flash, on how the printer works. These Pixus printers are better than the Colorio series by Epson. You can scan documents, and use it like a photocopier. It uses 5 colored cartridges, and prints pretty fast. The quality of the photos printed are quite good. The printer can be networked (Ethernet cable), or it can use Wifi (if you have a Nitendo Wii Wireless connector that uses AOSS, you can use that also). You can open up the lid and use the top as a flat bed scanner or feed in single sheets in the lid, to do a double page copy. There's also a USB port, and it has a multimedia card reader. The MX870 looks like it faxes also. The MP640 is the non-fax version which is equally good.

The software you get will be in Japanese, but it's pretty intuitive, just look at the American website, and you can download the manual. It's exactly the same. With the MP640, the menu features on the screen can be changed to English (so the MX is probably the same). I heard you can't use the American Canon ink in a Japanese printer, maybe it's something to do with the electronic connectors.

You can try it out at Yodobashi camera, there's a discount at the moment. I highly recommend it.

It does print both sides. Most of the newer Pixus's print double sided. There's also a feeder tray down the bottom to store more paper. Look up Pixma MX870 and you'll find out more information. In the States it's called Pixma. I bought another Pixus lower model, and that also prints double sided.
