Summary: This printer was super easy to set up and get going. We mostly print wirelessly - which is why we bought it (to replace our wired printer), but when I went to scan in some photos, it was VERY difficult. You have to use the USB cable and the software they use for saving the images is very clunky.
Fine for casual printing, no good if you're trying to be specific

Summary: This printer is easy to set up and use, and works well enough. I have an old PIXMA MG470 and it never gave me any problems, but I figured it was time to upgrade to a wireless printer. The problems begin with trying to get it to print exact colors.
Summary: The printer is compact and does the job but the quality printing is not the best. Printed bar-codes do not scan. Ink is expensive. If you don't do a lot of printing this one may be right for you.
Summary: This printer replaces a somewhat old HP that had been a good performer for home use. I like Canon products and have had good luck with them so when this printer came out with a high rating I bought it. Print quality is good and the options available are very good.
Summary: . Lots to like about this printer. Well designed, loads of features. Keeping it fed is the problem. If it starts to feel like an expensive drug habit, see "8 ways to lower your ink costs" below. Or consider the Brother MFCJ870DW which cooperates with value-priced 3rd party inks.
