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 has three in one functionality. It has a scanner, a printer and a copier compiled and assembled together in a single unit. The MP 240 model is lightweight, easy to use and compact.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER! It will drive you insane!! It shuts off at random when you are printing or scanning multiple documents. The only way to get started again is to remove power cord and plug back in. I plan on throwing it off of my 2nd floor balcony and then going downstairs and destroying it with a sledgehammer.
Summary: This printer will not print or scan if one of the ink cartridges is low. I have a new black ink cartridge installed but the color cartridge is low on ink, the printer will not scan or even print black and white documents. This printer was designed to not function at all if one of the cartridges is low on ink. This is a really silly design from Canon, I will never buy a product from them anymore.
Excerpt: I got this printer in a bundle package with my PC purchase last year, and have been very happy with it. The only problem I had was an error message one (E3 I believe) that said it was jammed. I couldn't see anything in the printer, but after putting a piece of cardstock through the paper feed, a comb fell out, and it works perfectly again!
Excerpt: This printer is a good bargain for the money. The print quality is clear. Pictures print nicely on it too. They are pretty clear. This printer is also a photocopy machine which has proved to come in very handy with school projects, extra activities and even recipes! This printer is great and I would purchase one just like it again.
The Canon PIXMA MP240 is simple and creates excellent documents.

Excerpt: I had not bought a new computer in 10 years. Vista came with my computer and I was leary of buying a printer that would be compatable. I took what was offered with the package - the Canon PIXMA MP240 which gave me printing, copier and scanning capability. I am very pleased with the quality of the output from this machine and the ease of using it. Printing envelopes is a new experience for me. I have not tried it with previous printers because the paper would jam.

Excerpt: My canon pixma mp240 all in one printer worked great for couple months. Now paper jams and printer goes to Error. No help from any online sites unless they want more money. Canon not helpful, will try store I bought it from but not hopeful.
