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.
Conclusion: I had a Canon Pixma printer previously that I loved. It stopped working suddenly after 5+ yrs of use. It printed excellent photos. I thought it would be great to have a wireless printer. It is great when it works.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, easy to use
Cons: Dull Tones & Colors, High Ink Consumption, unreliable
Conclusion: This printer is very slow to start printing. Scanned images are fuzzy and the colors are not the same brightness as the scanned image. Printed image comes out dull and the colors are not the same as the original image being printed. Don't waste your money on this printer!!!
Summary: Initially I thought this was ok. Only thing I liked was that the print quality was good. This printer takes a while to print, it "warms up" before printing and the longest I've timed it so far has been 4 minutes. Which sucks when you're in a rush. It sucks up ink like crazy!
Conclusion: If it were not for the excessive ink costs this would be a GREAT little all-in-one printer. My last 5 printers were all great Canon Printers that all used separate ink cartridges but this one will send you into bankruptcy.
Pros: all the great qualities pale with ink cost!
Cons: ink cost way too high!, again = it burns through ink and costs are high
Conclusion: Bottom line is Canon is ensuring their customers only can print on NORMAL or BEST (i.e.: use up lots of expensive Canon ink cartridges) quality. I can see DRAFT mode but it is greyed out on the slide bar when you try to chose it. I am using a 2012 Macbook Air.
Pros: Compact Design, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, no draft mode
Summary: The device is not a user-friendly product. I have had a number of problems figuring out how to specify the file destination of pictures I scan, and even yet I feel that am sort of going through the back door to make it happen.
Summary: I would not buy this printer again in the future, sadly I am stuck with it for now.
Pros: - Sleek - Good size (for me) - Easy to set-up wirelessly
Cons: - 5 ink cartridges.. - Had to call support to bypass an error code out of box.. I should have listened to one of the other reviews here that I read, it does indeed take this printer ages to ready up for a print after it sits idle for a day or two. I don't print often, but when I print I usually n...
