terrible rpinter

Kt., Canon
18 July 2014
  • Conclusion: I had Canon model before this that was satisfactory. This one is lighter and flimsier. It almost never prints true. I am forever replacing ink and it still prints mostly orange. I have a hard time getting it to recognize our wireless. It will print okay one day and be "offline" the next four. Do not buy this printer.

Main use: disc printing

Arthur H, Canon
15 July 2014
  • Conclusion: This is my first Canon printer, purchased solely to print CD and DVD labels straight to disc. It's the ONLY consumer inkjet I will use for this purpose now. Once I discovered that this cannot be done wirelessly, but requires a USB connection (an inconvenience if you want to print from multiple computers), and once I figured out how to set up to print from my very common Mac-based label printing software, I was good to go.
  • Pros: reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors, very good disc printing, not its competitors
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, High Ink Consumption, messy documentation

Quality Output

  • Conclusion: My old MP600, which I loved, finally bit the dust. I purchased this machine and liked its ability to print CDs. I read as much as I could about this multifunction printer prior to purchasing. I really don't need wireless at home so I use a USB connection. The text and photos are outstanding. I found it easy to set up. Found the CD tray that is attached on the bottom of the upper tray.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors
  • Cons: High Ink Consumption

I barely used and am buying a new one to replace it.

ms.gogeke, Ebay

  • Summary: I just discovered that the printer has a design flaw and after hours of trying to get the CD printing tray into the printer I give up and did not discover until it was way too late to return this printer. I will have to buy another one and definitely not this one. It is the slowest printer I have ever owned and rapidly uses ink. I bought is specifically for the CD printing capability and am 100% certain there is a design flaw.

Worse purchase ever!

Topper, Canon
1 July 2014
  • Conclusion: Shame on me for not reading the reviews before I bought this piece of junk! For the last 2 weeks I have struggled to get this to print at all! The wireless doesn't work, paper jams, and it uses ink like crazy. Seems like something new goes wrong everyday and I spend most of my work time trying to figure out why I can't print. Don't buy it - just junk it!
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Slow Print Speed, unreliable, High Ink Consumption, Flimsy Construction

What were they thinking?>

Therck, Canon
28 June 2014
  • Conclusion: This is my 6th Canon printer and they are beginning to lose my confidence overall. As others have noted, this printer is the slowest to initiate printing that I have ever had. It just grinds, whirs and clunks for many minutes before beginning to print. And why did they ever go to a front-and-over paper handling mechanism? You know this will be more problematic than straight down-and-out handling. And it is.
  • Pros: Sharp Tones & Colors
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, Heavy/Bulky, Difficult Setup, High Ink Consumption, unreliable

DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK!

Disgusted!, Canon
24 June 2014
  • Conclusion: I received this printer just about one year and two weeks ago. The warranty is for one year. Now I know why. It has failed already. It uses ink like there is an endless supply of new factory cartridges and endless money to buy them. I got this primarily for its scanner and disc printing features. BUT the scanner will not work when any one of the ink cartridges is low. It does not matter that you are not printing.
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, Flimsy Construction, excessive head cleaning needed, pulls multiple sheets of paper, left pool of ink under printer
