Summary: I have been trying to scan in old photographs from my grandmothers photo albums, and turn them digital images. With this printer, there is an option to scan pictures in as .JPEG or .TIFF. The majority of digital images are JPEG - your standard compressed image. However .TIFF is a completely uncompressed image. It creates a bigger file... but if you have to do touch ups it is so much easier, and comes out much nicer. Many multifunction printers don't have this option.
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.
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.
Excerpt: After many years of service, our old printer just wasn't compatible with my new Hewlett Packard laptop. Since we did not want to spend a great deal after having just purchased the laptop, we looked for an on sale quality printer. This one is easy to use and has photo capability along with fax, scanning, and copying. It is easy for this not very handy tech-challenged right brainer to use.
This Canon PIXMA Printer has been a surprisingly good printer

Excerpt: I bought the Canon PIXMA MP240 because of the low price with low expectations of its quality, and I have been very surprised at how good of a printer it has been to date. I have had much more expensive printers that performed considerably less efficient than this Canon printer. I consider this printer to be a very good value for the money I spent, and I consider it money well spent.
Excerpt: We upgraded our old printer with this one, and it's so much easier to use. The old one was not reliable and so slow.

Reviewer received a sample of this product.

I take it back to the store and exchang it for another one. I get the second onehome and put the ink cartridges in and it finally work. The applications that came with the printer are really helpful. It shows you step by step how to scan items and print them and it also has a very helpful troubleshooting progam. ...
Excerpt: Out of all the printer I have owned the Canon Pixma MP240 is the best one I have used for printing photos. I have used a Brothers, HP, and another one. All were okay but this one has the best picture quality I think. I also like the way it looks. I think it is very stylish. The color is nice as well kind of a very lite gray color with black trim. The Canon Pixma MP240 offers a flat bed scanner on top wich is nice.
