Conclusion: After tinkering and frustrating time with just getting this printer to respond, I have given up. Won't work with wireless nor will it work with wire. It is plugged in and does not respond after coming here to this website to download the driver here. WOW...Can think of many more ways to spend a Sunday afternoon than doing something that should be pretty simple! Wrapping this boy back up and back to the store with you, going to buy a foreign brand printer.
Conclusion: This printer does NOT connect to my computer through WiFi (the main reason I bought the printer was because it was wireless). Also the amount of money I have to spend replacing the ink is extremely costly.
Conclusion: have to say this is probably the worst printer i have ever dealt with coming from someone in the IT field. Every time i need to install this printer on a different computer i have to hook it up via usb in order to install it rather than the setting it up once and being able to connect over the network. This thing hardly sees the network when it is installed.
Conclusion: I have had this printer for about 32 months and I am constantly having to power off and on for it to connect back to the wireless network. My wife is constantly telling me she can't print and I have to power off and back on. I have been using Canon printers the last 4 purchases but this one has been very aggravating.
Conclusion: WI-FI operations on a home network, using this printer, have proven to be impossible to make the printer work on a sustainable basis. I was able to get it to enter the WI-FI network and to print once. Then everything went into a Que with statement the printer was offline. I called Canon and got a very knowledgeable rep who patiently walked me through uninstallation and installation with driver download from the Canon web site.
Conclusion: We have had this model printer for 2 months and are very dis-satisfied with the quality of pictures. Hard to even recognize any details to pictures. We will never purchase Canon products again. Tones are very very dull!
Conclusion: I bought this printer to print pictures and cd/dvd labels. Both use Glossy paper. After printing a set of dvd labels , I found that the ink would smear , even rub off. Even an hour and 45 min's later the ink is smearing. Just the dark colors . I have never seen this before. Please don' t tell me I have to buy only your paper!
Conclusion: Wireless is very difficult to set up via WPS and wireless kept disconnecting and needing to be reinstalled- when possible. It's a printer, not network problem. I'd never buy this printer again.
Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, unreliable
Conclusion: My wife and I are both teachers and we have had nothing but problems with this printer. It goes through ink faster than a 57' Chevy goes through gas. Save your money and buy something that works.
Cons: Slow Print Speed, Dull Tones & Colors, High Ink Consumption, unreliable, Flimsy Construction
