Conclusion: I have owned this printer for over a year now and I am still very pleased with it. The prints are beautiful and does not use as much ink as other competitors. Standard photo prints come out sharp and fast. The scanner works great and the software is able to automatically detect the document size and crop it. This printer would be perfect if it had a fax and an auto-feeder, but was not a deal breaker for me.
Pros: reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, durable, Sharp Tones & Colors, fast print speed, easy to use
Cons: cost of ink, sometimes print jobs are slow to start
Conclusion: We have had this printer since May 2012. We have to use the scanner very often in my husband's business, so it was important to have a device to replace our old printer which was always having a problem with the scanning software. Have been very pleased with this. Over the last year and a half, we have installed wireless printing on a Vista machine twice, (new hard drive) and two different Windows 7 machines.
Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, Lightweight/Portable, fast print speed, easy to use
Conclusion: This is a good home/small office printer/scanner/copier. I have it hooked up to our wireless network and I have no problem scanning or printing documents from two different laptops. This printer is fast and has good print quality for what I use it for. I do not print photos or photo quality prints but I'm sure with the correct paper and ink this printer would do a good job. So far so good with this printer. I will leave the issue of ink consumption alone.
Pros: reliable, fast print speed, easy to use, Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors
Switched from HP back to Canon and it appears to be a good move! Thumbs up!

Summary: I am pleased with this Canon printer that I purchased on eBay. It puts out a quality printed product. I do not print pictures and I have not tried the copier or scanner yet--have not needed to do either yet--but it is a good printer for my basic printing needs. I had trouble setting it up with my wireless laptop, but the service technician I got when I called the Canon Company walked me through it very nicely and PATIENTLY and knowledgeably!
Great print quality,Quick,Cheap price but works better than a $200 printer.

Summary: This has excellent print quality for photos and very quick at that especially for the money. Definitely the best bang for your buck and ink cartridges are fairly cheap as well! All in all I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and have not had any sort of regrets since purchasing this printer!
