Summary: I am very please with the performance of the machine, especially the colour printer and the slide/negative scanner- far far superior to the cheapo slide copiers. The only gripes I have are that: 1. it only handles 35mm and 2. the on screen controls are not intuitive. I don't want to use Canon's filing structure. I just want straightforward easy to use controls. They are there but not obvious.
Summary: I've had a good few printers over the years, but this knocks them all into a cocked hat. As a test I put a twenty pound note in the scanner, there is software in place to stop you copying the whole note, but what it did print out, matched the note exactly. My Daughter and Husband, were amazed and said that the office printers that they have could not match it.
Summary: Sorely disappointed and wish I had never bought it. Uses colour cartridges like 'no tomorrow'. Does not use just black for printing just text, even after guidance from Canon's technical team. Also changed my settings to 'greyscale', but still eating colour cartridges. I don't use it any longer as it is too expensive to run. I also found getting hold of Canon's technical team extremely difficult and found the team a little unhelpful.
Summary: I have owned this printer for a couple of weeks and have had no problems either setting it up or running it so far. I have given it 4 stars because it is too short a time to be certain whether it is worth 5!
Summary: After doing a bit of research I decided on this printer when my old faithful Epson died. I also thought a high quality scanner would be useful for some projects I wished to embark on. This printer is horrific to set up as many have pointed out with numerous drivers needing to be installed and the Wifi flakey at best. It is big and heavy but the trays surprisingly fragile and the build quality is not what I would have expected for the price.
Summary: had two canon printers before and this one even better. does everything you could possibly need. two sided print, disc print ,negative scan ,excellent photo print, plus a grey ink for better black and white photos.
