Summary: This has been the only printer that I couldn't kill in 6 months time! Normally, I buy a printer, and within the next six months, I'm buying a new one. I couldn't kill this one. I love it. It even has a magnet stuck in it that I dropped, and still works like the day I got it. I even turned it upside down and shook it, and it still works! Fast, cheap ink, good quality. I love it!
Great printer, great scanner, great copier, cheap ink
1 April 2005
Summary: This is a marvelous device. I have had it for two days, have been printing/scanning/copying continuously (scanner+faxmodem=fax!), and am enormously happy with it. I can recommend it without qualification. Printing is reasonably fast, the driver is very intuitive and allows for duplexing, colour/grayscale/b&w. The scanner is very high quality, performing all of colour/grayscale/b&w scanning, and the copying feature is really a gem.
Summary: One of the reviewer must be confused when mentioning that the scan takes five minutes. Very likely, the scan is set an an abnormally high quality/dpi rate, resulting in the the high quality and slow scan times the reviewer experienced. Personally, I am able to scan documents and photos very quickly and efficiently. I usually leave the documents at around 150dpi, and photos at a much higher rate depending on the job.
Summary: Scans are slow, slow slow slow!! Slow to the point of uselessness, to scan a copy of my Amazon receipt took over 5 minutes, as opposed to my older Epson 1660 which took 4 seconds.The MP370 is USB 1.0 vs the Epson's USB2.0, (why the Mp370 takes so long?) On the plus side the scans are sharp and detailed once they finally arrive, and the prints are nice, though there are only 2 cartridges: a very small Color one and a cheap nice BW, unlike most other newer Canons that...
Summary: Compared this one to various printers in the HP line and I am glad I bought this one! I also have an HP officejet 630 on our other computer, which has worked well. Scanner jams ocassionally, not a flatbed. It was time to buy a flatbed scanner/printer/copier to go with our new Dell 4600 with XP home.
Summary: Pros: - Very good quality printing, takes few minutes to go through the alignment (follow the documentation) - The ink's are much cheaper to refill ( best thing!) - Not too big Cons: - While shutting does some noisy operation before completely shutting down. But if you want all-in-one and best value for money- go for this one!
