Summary: Happy with this machine. Bought it really cheap here in the Netherlands and it does what it's supposed to do. Scanner and OCR work fine. High quality photos, too. But that's my only gripe: many stores (including Amazon) tell you that it prints borderless photos but it does NOT! Mind, the Canon site states that it doesn't, it's the stores that are wrong here.
Summary: Its a very big printer so if space is an issue you might want to pass. Also there is no tray for catching the paper I don't know what they were thinking the paper just fly's out. The print quality is good I am happy with it.
Summary: This printer is solid for a cheap printer. It has an easy to use interface, and DOES have a scanner function (despite what some other comments suggest, you just need to install the scanner driver when setting up the printer software). It's VERY easy to load paper into the printer, much better than my old HP Deskjet. It's a little louder than some other printers, but not so loud that it's annoying.
Summary: Good printer. For the price it has really good print quality. Nice easy to use features. Not extremely fancy but has the all key features. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good bargain on a solid printer.
Summary: Works very well. Print quality is excellent (it was a Cannon engineer that invented thermal ink jet technology in the 70's). Like the other Canon printers I have (two) it's kinda noisy; a bit of "thunking and clunking" at turn on/off and before it starts to print. Once you're used to it, it's no big deal. Some of the software that comes with it is not too user friendly, but it works perfectly with all the applications I normally use, so who cares?
Summary: I bought this printer for $25. It is awful. Constantly getting errors saying the "holder" is in the wrong position, the "top is open", even when it's blatantly closed, and paper jams with ONE piece of of paper in the tray. Stay away and don't be a cheap a** like me!
