Summary: This printer is not a good one for color photographs. The colors are weak and faded looking. At the same time I bought this printer I bought a cheaper priced Hewlett Packard Deskjet 2512 All-in-One CX028A. I printed out a copy of a butterfly closeup on each printer. The HP printer printed out a superior photograph. The Canon's photo was a disappointment. On the bright side the Canon scans fairly well and it makes OK copies. The media card reader works well too.
Summary: hard to hook up with confusing instructions written by a team of morons. first sheet of paper jammed; second printed and now it refuses to take any paper at all. for $136 or whatever it is is a lot of money to spend for a rifle target. buy some other brand.
Summary: I had an Epson "all-in-one" (that is, printer, copier, and scanner), model number now forgotten, for several years. Overall, the performance was quite satisfactory for a substantial period, but like everything in life, it started to wear out, and there were a number of problems, commencing with a belt that appeared loose or stretched, which caused significant difficulties in scanning.
Summary: We bought this on a "Deal of the Day" as a backup for our HP. It worked fine for the first year (or one Black Ink cartridge), wireless with Macs. Then it started having a problem grabbing the next sheet and displaying a "No Paper" error. It will print IF the paper is pushed in and jiggled a bit. At $69.99 it was an OK deal - I just should have bought another printer rather than replacing the cartridge.
Summary: Easy enough to set up.....hard to find ink cartridges for it once it's over 6 months old. Have to go to re-manufactured ones that don't break the bank. The picture quality is ok....but I guess I got what I paid for. And I am a BIG fan of Canon Cameras and lenses. This is why I was disappointed. Sorry.
