Summary: This is a great almost all-in-one. I was hoping to use it as a fax machine as well, but there are two models with the same number and one has fax capability and one doesn't. If you want the faxing then make sure you ask if it's the "Fax Model". The coolest feature is the keypad. You can instantly copy and scan things with the touch of a button. If you want easy then get this printer. The quality is good pretty good too.
Summary: Add me to the list of people who loved this printer when it worked. My black is the only color that went out, but I do a serious amount of text printing. I couldn't tell you how many thousands of pages I've printed. I think I'm going to buy a laser multifunction and then get a dedicated photoprinter.
Summary: I've had the Canon MP730 printer for over a year and up til now have LOVED it. Its very easy to use for scanning, faxing, copying and printing. However, a week ago the print quality began deteriorating and even though there is ink in all the cartridges, yellow and blue don't print well. I've cleaned the nozzles, realigned the print and even reseated the printhead. Nothing resulted in any positive changes.
Summary: I'm afraid I will add to the list of people experiencing problems with the MP700 printhead. After all sort of tries, I am now at the point where I decided to buy a new printer rather than a new printhead. And I am not taking a Canon as it is the second time I experience critical problems with them (feed with BJC6000, and printhead with MP700), despite a great grace period where I was pleased with the overall perfomance and user interface to the printer.
Summary: I've had this printer for over a year now and for the past 6 months, the print quality has been terrible. This month, it won't print at all and I've been told I need to buy a new printhead which will cost at least $70. I've tried cleaning the printhead, doing any possible maintenance I could and none of this helped. I have always used Canon ink cartridges and never abuse this printer.
Summary: Having used my MP700 for approx 6 months the print quality of photos suddenly deteriorated, leaving colours jaded and lacking in vibrancy. Not suspecting my (almost) new printer I replaced my Olympus digital camera with a top of the range Fuji. No difference. I then spent the next 7 months playing around with different settings and different types of photo paper, to no avail. I then replaced my entire PC, still not thinking the printer could be the problem.
Summary: Excellent product. Good customer service. Note that this unit hooks up with a 2.0 USB port (most older pc's have the 1.1 ports). It's easy to clean the printer and adjust the head with the click of the mouse!
Summary: The specs of the MP700 indicate it does NOT have a FAX so it can't "Fax well." Just wanted potential buyers to know. If you need a fax, get the MP730, but the scanner size is limited to letter size.
Summary: I have purchased this printer 8 months back from Amazon. Great price on the net. I have been using the printer for ever since. THe printe quality is very good. Scanner and Fax works great. I even print photographs and a lot of material for home and my child's school projects. I would recommend this product.
