  • Summary: Very good printer but ink tanks are small and it seems to race through ink. Does everything well but just watch that ink disappear!

Basic Functions are good

  • Summary: But uses a lot of ink. Scan function works well but occasionally temperamental about wireless connection which is a nuisance when it is 2 floors away from the PC

Very happy

slim, Canon
20 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Overall very happy, the size was a bit daunting at first but cannon have managed to pack a lot of good features into the printer, my favourite would be printing a screen shot or photo from my mobile phone from anywhere in the house or back yard. Our girls do home work and print from their desks without the need of USB sticks or cables.... a very nice feature.
  • Pros: Reliable, Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors, Fast Print Speed, Easy to use
  • Cons: Large Footprint, Heavy/Bulky, High Ink Consumption

Easy to use, good range of features, but expensive to run

Hils C, Amazon

  • Summary: As an office accessory, I've been very pleased with this printer. The scanning function is very useful, allowing multiple pages to save as pdfs, plus it will scan slides and photos and for printing standard documents etc, it has been excellent. I haven't been too impressed with the photos that I've printed though, as they seem rather heavy and lacking sparkle.

  • Summary: Received my printer in excellent time from ordering it, I had it set up & running around the hour mark , Wi -Fi was easy set up. Very compact & impressed with having slide & negative scanner as well as a scanner, I thought the layout within the printer great was disappointed in the first few photo's printed that was direct from my apple Imac computer wasn't up to the standard I expected from all the glowing reports on picture quality, I even cleaned the printers print...

2nd time lucky again!!

Jigsawpuzzleblues, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: The 1st one to arrive had an error which wouldn't allow setup. I contacted Canon stating the error code but they had no idea what that error code implied...that the printer may have been a refurbished item!! I contacted Amazon who arranged for collection of faulty one.. another printer to be delivered next day which it duly was. Happily no problem with the new one. It was easy to setup and so far, the quality of scanning and printing has been excellent.

Slick, quiet, stylish

Mr. Andrew K Popkin, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the touch interface, and the way the machine thinks for you...it opens it's own front flap and guides you through operations selected, it hides buttons that are not needed. Someone has really put some thought in with this one. I wanted a film scanner too if I could get it and this delivers, but only for cut 35mm (eg negatives), not slides or any other format. Downside? a wee bit dear both to buy and to maintain, hence 4 stars. Upside?

Does the job

Crimpcase, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: Bought this printer after reading the reviews, I wanted a new printer with air print, my old printer was about 9 years old, canon i865 and has done a good job until now, but as I am now using Apple kit it made sense to have air print, I hope it gives the same service, I gave this 4 stars as I found the set up a bit long winded, I should have listened to some of the reviewers and just gone and got the new drivers first off, beats me why they put in a disc, still I got...

good printer

dan, Amazon
25 September 2012
  • Summary: This is a nice printer with good print quality and facilities, wifi works great with iphone and ipad and connects everything with a wireless connection with easy set up. I would have gave full marks but the build quality should be a much higher grade for the money but overall I'm pleased with the printer and the delivery service was good

Make sure there's room on your desk

Tenesmus "Tenesmus", Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: There's not a lot to add to other reviews really - this is a very good printer and scanner. I bought it to replace an HP device that was noisy and would go to sleep after a couple of minutes of no use and had to be switched off and on again to wake it up - none of that nonsense with this one. It's worth mentioning this is a big unit and you need to make sure there's room for the rear paper tray that you must use for photo paper (plain paper uses a tray underneath).
