Excerpt: I have always used Canon printers and have been very happy with them. I decided when I bought my AIO that I would try the Canon PIXMA MP 210 and see how well it did. I am very happy with it. I am happy with all features and do frequently use the fax modem with it, which works very well. At times I do get a little disgusted with the scan feature as it seems that I cannot get it to put the scanned item into the folder on my PC that I want it to!
Excerpt: Although I have purchased a laser scanner and printer, this all-in-one inkjet printer is still a treasure to me. My favorite thing about this product is the scanner! Cannon cameras capture fantastic photos and images, the scanner does so as well. I have used the scanner of my Brother all-in-one laser printer and am not too impressed with the scanned image compared to the ones scanned by this printer.
Excerpt: After spending much time arguing with my old printer during my thesis development, i went to microcenter and picked up a refurbed mp210 for about 40 dollars. I needed a print/copy/scan all in one printer as i was a design major and needing to do all of these things in order to save money and time from going to a copy store and having them do what i could do at home. Finally...a printer that did what it should and didn't give me a hard time while doing it.
Excerpt: I have used about three different printers and I have find that the Canon PIXMA MP210 works very well for me. I use it at home making copies off the internet of different recipes that I have been looking for.it prints clear and neat. It is easy to switch from black to color printing.The good thing about this printer is is also a scanner.When I have to send copies to someone I can do from home and not have to go out and do it.
Excerpt: The Canon PIXMA MP210 is a great printer for those who have/need a scanner but don't like all of the extra space it takes up. It has a build in scanner which can also be used as a copier and will immediately print a copy of whatever is in the scanner. It also can be used with cameras (Canon is probably recommended but I'm sure any camera with a USB cord will work), all you have to do is plug them in and it will print the pictures you want. I think that is very...
Excerpt: I have had this printer for several years now, and it works just as well as when I first bought it. I needed something that scanned photos at a high enough resolution rate for digital prints to be made for my genealogy addiction; I like the ease of use, the way the lid raises to allow bulky items with the lid completely shut.
Excerpt: Canon Multifunction PIXMA MP210 star is a great printer, for the most part. The scanner works very well and is easy to use since this printer comes with scanning software to make the process easier. I was able to succesfully scan a few older books that I bought at a library and I am still able to clearly see each line of text and the images that appear in the pdf format that the scanner software allows the scans to be saved as.
Excerpt: I love all the things I can do with this printer. I have had it for over 2 years and have not had one problem eith it. On the down side you cannot use refilled ink cartridges in this printer and the refills can be pricey but if you do your homework you can find good deals
Excerpt: The canon MP210 is a pretty good scanner/printer combo for the money. Under Windows, it recognizes instantly and installs easily. The printer is not directly supported under Linux. However, under Ubuntu Linux the drivers for the MP220 will print to it without issue and the native scanner interface (probably a TWAIN based system, though I haven't checked) works without issue. Print and scan quality are both high.
A nice Printer and Scanner that with the exception of a few bugs, fulfills it's intended purpose!

Summary: In my life of having printers, I've only had 2, which both were cannon printers. In 2008, when buying a new computer, a new printer was included w/ the purchase of the computer (which was the Canon MP210 of course). At first it was pesky setting up the printer (cables weren't being recognized,etc.) but after setting it up and inserting the ink-jet cartridges, it was worth the trouble.
