Excerpt: I always related Canon to digital cameras. I didnt know that they had a product line of printers as well until I bought one from a best buy store. I bought Canon Pixma MP 240 printer/copier/scanner for a very reasonable price. The best thing about it is that it …
Summary: I received this printer as a freebie when buying a laptop during the 2008 Black Friday sale. For the price, can not beat it. It replaces an older HP Deskjet 5550. The scanner works great and printing on paper is fast. I would not rely on this for photos.
Summary: I owned several Canon PIXMA (MP240 and MP270)during the past two years. They are inexpensive and have two large ink cartridges, one for black and the other for color, which are reasonably priced and last longer than similar Epson or HP cartridges.
Summary: This was a replacement for another MP240 that I had. I would have gone a bit more "tech," but I had too many unused cartridges to do it. Having said that, this is a nice, solid little printer at a decent price. It's not going to send your fax, but it will give you clean copies and scans.
Summary: I bought this printer almost three years ago, and it just died this week. For three years, it was reliable and gave no trouble. You will get low ink warnings very quickly, but the ink will last for dozens--if not hundreds--more pages.
Summary: If you're a student, avoid this printer! Four out of five of my classes require printing and bringing articles that the instructor uploaded online, and after about a week of use the ink runs out! At $15 for a cartridge, that's ridiculous!
Summary: I bought this printer in October 2008 after reading several positive reviews. I would like to offer a strongly dissenting opinion! The printer barely lasted a year before the paper feed broke. Mind you, I used this strictly for the occasional home print job. No photos, just text.
