Excerpt: I purchased the black version of this model, so perhaps the white version works better. As a scanner, it works fine. As a printer, I spend the majority of my time arguing with it about whether paper exists, as though it is some electronic version of Neo from the Matrix, and paper is its spoon. It does not matter how many sheets of paper are in the feed tray, it will insist there is no paper. Alternately, it will jam (on the paper it just claimed was not there).
Summary: I love this printer. I got tired of having to lug out a big laptop and hook to a printer every time I needed to print. With this, I installed an ap on my iPhone and set the printer up in a corner and can just send stuff to the printer wirelessly now. Footprint is a bit big, so make sure you got space for it. It took about 30 minutes to hook up. I bought extra ink off of here with printer for only $8, so definitely will be spending less on ink than I did with my old HP.
Conclusion: I've been working all afternoon to set up my laptop to the computer. I've got my phone hooked up to print from Facebook. I've got Google cloud set up but doesn't see this printer still. I have never had such a hard time setting up a printer!!! I have download and signed up for more stuff than you can image!!! Still can't do just a basic print from my laptop.
The footprint of this printer is a bit larger than I'd like but having "duplex" printing is worth it

Summary: It took a bit to get used to this printer as I've always had HP in the past. This printer seems to be a work horse and really serves my purpose. The footprint of this printer is a bit larger than I'd like but having "duplex" printing is worth it. Thanks Canon - you've earned a new customer!
Conclusion: I haven't purchased a printer in many years and this was a very nice experience. The unit was delivered promptly. I am not a computer geek but I had no problem installing the printer and setting it up. The quality of the printing is very good.
Pretty good printer. I like the Canon PIXMA series

Summary: I like this printer so far. Had it a few months. It has quite a few interesting features that are listed. Unfortunately it is not a touch-screen as advertised but that's not a huge issue for me. Set up: Setting up to wi-fi was a little tricky but that was mostly due to the location of the router in my house! When you plan setting this thing up, bring the printer and your main computer to be right next to the router. It will make life easier.
