Summary: I bought this printer because it was cheap, and because you can get cheap generic ink cartridges for it. It turned out to be far better than I was expecting. Print quality is extremely good, even on the lowest quality setting while using cheap generic ink.
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.
