Conclusion: I've owned this printer for one year now. I'm happy with my purchase. It prints and scans documents well enough. My only qualms is the device is much slower than my previous all-in-one, especially when it comes to scanning. Other reviewers mention problems with the wireless function.
Conclusion: Overall I am pleased with the unit: easy wifi setup (Mac); good print quality, average ink usage. However, the utility does not permit grayscale printing (not talking scanning here, but printing). My utility window shows grayscale printing "OFF", leading me to believe it could be turned on.
Conclusion: I bought this as a cheap printer that connects via WiFi to my network and the WiFi part works great. Unlike what some people believe, the printer doesn't connect to a computer directly via WiFi, but you need a router in the middle of the network.
Pros: fairly fast printing, good value for price, wifi is fairly reliable, high quality scans
Cons: expensive cartridges, colors aren't separate
Summary: Can only connect to my network via usb cable and not wirelessly. I’ve tried everything to connect wirelessly and nothing works. Tech support is of no help. They tried selling me a new router for $200.
Conclusion: I buy Canon because of its free US based tech support. You can get a real,live person who you can understand and understands the problem--for free. This is important because the wireless connection set up--the reason why I bought the printer-does not connect easily.
Pros: Sharp Tones & Colors, two sided printing
Cons: Difficult Setup, paper catcher does not catch multiple pages, wireless printer does not have much range
The Canon MG3220 is probably an excellent product but I caution beginners!

Summary: Unfortunately, I may have to live with it. The Canon MG3220 has trouble recognizing wireless hook-up with my upgraded laptop Latitude E4300, let alone many menus I have to search through just to get a decent printout via USB.
Conclusion: The Printer Canon Pixma MG 3220 All-In-One Wireless is probably worth the money for a home printer for a inexpensive inkjet, Good software you can scan print e-mail, etc, No Fax Still haven't hooked it up (wireless yet) using USB cable.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, Flimsy Construction
Summary: This is a great little printer for the money. At under $75 it prints documents beautifully both in color and b&w. I've printed clip art for my son's birthday and it was not only quick and nice looking but it didn't drink up all the color ink. So far so good right...
Conclusion: This product was in my opinion a really neat idea, the setup was quite hard and complicated though!! i would wish this would be a lot easier. The product satisfied me but did not really do more.
