Conclusion: This printer is a replacement for me of an old (15-20 years old?) MP830 printer. The improvements are spectacular! Thoroughly enjoying the wifi connection. And so many "goodies." Even I, not being an electronically inclined individual, could figure out the set up and how to use it.
Conclusion: To say that I am shocked after reading so many negative reviews here....is a huge understatement! I bought this Canon about a year and a half ago, not just for one or two of the things that it was supposed to do, but for virtually everything!
Great printer and great customer service from Canon!

Summary: We bought this printer in dec 2013 and had no problems what so ever until it wouldn't turn on one day. It's very easy to set up and use, prints great documents & photos and the wifi works flawlessly.
It was easy to install (on a Windows 7 SP1 64bit computer)

Summary: This printer does all it is said to be capable of and does it well. It was easy to install (on a Windows 7 SP1 64bit computer). The output is great and it is easy to use. I couldn't be happier.
Summary: I liked the looks of it allot, and the way the lid opens when it is printing! Prints very good pictures, and scans great! Very nice features, that I thought was really nice. I was glade that I had bought it.
FIVE STAR PRINTER***** Don't pass this printer up.

Summary: Excellent print quality! This is my first Canon printer, always used HP or Epson. Nice to have 2 paper cartridges. I only use this printer for photos so 8 X 11 in bottom cartridge and 4 X 6 in top, no more having to mess with switching paper and adjusting paper guides.
Conclusion: I've been using Canon printers for 20 years and won't buy anything else. It is designed for home use and light office rather than heavy office use, so keep that in mind. I use mine a lot to print knitting patterns I'm going to be doing to save wear and tear on the magazine or book it's in.
Cons: does not allow regular paper in the second tray.l
