Summary: This printer like most worked fine for a few months and is now a paperweight whose main function is to display error messages. Also, the ink is expensive and it won't work with off brand ink. Can we seriously not produce a decent printer that works consistently for a couple of years? One would never tolerate this kind of quality from any other appliance. My microwave, toaster, iron, vacuum cleaner, tv, dvd player, etc. have no problems for years.
Summary: Great printer quality but crapped out on me in just 2 years. Lots of paper jams when using regular paper. Ink lasts maybe for 10 jobs and the cartridges are expensive. I wouldn't waste your money.
Excerpt: Disclaimer: I usually never rate a product as a 1 star or 5 star product. This product, however, truly deserves the lowest rating available. When we updated our computer and printer, we didn't even know where to start. My previous printers had been HPs, but I'm not afraid to try something new. Friends had given us a Best Buy gift card and being busy with two sick kids, we opted to shop from home. Big mistake.
Summary: According to the gal I spoke to this morning at Canon (she was nice, but..) She threw the book at me and in so many words told me this known issue was my fault. I assure you it is not. First of all another gentlemman already mentioned how this printer sucks up ink... it totally does. The other thing he mentioned was how this printer eventually gives an "error paper jam" message, but like him I get the message even when the printer is completely clean and empty.
Summary: So I REALLY needed my printer today, and what has happened to this piece of junk is that I always go somewhere else to get a nice CRISP PRINT. This thing lasts for the first few hundred copies, then forget about it. Ink is smeared and words are even stricken through. Skip on this.
Summary: I have owned this Canon Pixma MP210 printer/copier for 3 years. I use it mostly as a copier and a second printer behind my old reliable HP Deskjet722C. Because of it's low use, the ink is always dry. I would not recommend this machine to anyone who intends to use it as I have.
Summary: This is the worst printer I have ever owned. I had just set it up and was given the "E2" error, which means it needs paper, long behold, it won't feed the paper. It won't do anything actually. Just flashes the same error, that's all it ever does actually. Worst. Printer. Ever.
Chews through Ink, Error lights don't clear, Tech support sucks
ptown "ptown", Amazon
5 September 2011
Summary: Chews through Ink, Error lights don't clear, Tech support sucks. My issue is that I can't print using my Mac and Microsoft Word when ink appears low. Paper spits out blank. My ink is not low. The cartridges are brand new. The sensors that detect ink levels are messed up. Also, it doesn't print certain fonts like ARIEL. It will print ARIEL BLACK but not straight up Ariel, the most popular font. It will also not print numbered lists or bulleted lists. Garbage.
Summary: I love the Canon Pixma MP and have used it for year but recently it broke and will be $45 to fix so I found one on Amazon and it looked good although not new. I came well packaged and after I bought new ink (disappointed I could not use the ones from the old machine) it was good to go except it does not feed properly. It is unusable. I guess that is what I get for purchasing a used printer.
Summary: This print was bequeathed to me by my mother after she got a far better quality printer. At first, I thought I had just been given gold; my own personal printer for free. I could finally print out essays for school, and a few pictures of my friends and I. However, my excitement was incredibly short lived. This first issue was the printing itself.
