Piece of Junk

Shel, Canon

  • Conclusion: This printer loses it wi-fi connection every other day!!! And of course no support on the weekend when I need it most. Trying to run a small business with this undependable piece of JUNK.

Disappointed in the performance, returning.

  • Summary: I spent an hour or so getting this unpacked, hooked up, and ready to start printing. Wireless connected quickly once I got used to the menu and added in my information. The installation CD was weird though, I could hear the CD spinning but no screen popped up for installation.

works fine in the beginning...

  • Conclusion: Worked great in the beginning but after a while the wireless printing settings stopped working, I also don't understand how there are two ink cartridge slots for black and it won't let me just use cli-black when the the other one is out.

Worst printer EVER!!!

CLynn, Canon
19 September 2014
  • Conclusion: This is by far the worst printer I ever encountered in my life! It is a total piece of garbage. If you ever want to just print in black and white, forget it- unless you have full ink in every compartment plus an extra large black one.

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.

Worse purchase ever!

Topper, Canon

  • 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.
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Slow Print Speed, unreliable, High Ink Consumption, Flimsy Construction

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.

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.
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, Flimsy Construction, excessive head cleaning needed, pulls multiple sheets of paper, left pool of ink under printer

Don't Even Consider It!

Mavis, Canon
13 June 2014
  • Conclusion: I bought this to replace a 4 year old Pixma that still worked OK. Decided to upgrade printer while upgrading computer. I had to have it set up by a commercial tech guy. Even he couldn't get it to scan wirelessly so I have to plug in the computer to do so.
  • Pros: Compact Design
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, Difficult Setup, High Ink Consumption, won't print black & white if a color is low., often jams.
