Summary: If zero stars were available, then that is how I would rate this printer. How did this printer ever come to market? The printing is so blurry I can't use it. I have done the troubleshooting. It is not at all user friendly.
Summary: I have bought 3 Canon printers in the Pixma series. The two older ones are still in use in this building. The only reason I had to replace the last one was that the ink carriage band became dislodged. Compared with the other Canon products, the MX 450 is a step backward.
Summary: I got this printer for a great price on sale - but not worth it. If you just want standard printouts then you are fine, if you need any type of quality - forget it! It prints worse than my old dot matrix printer 20 years ago :-( I would not recommend this product.
Summary: I have owned this printer since 2005,it's still working great. And they still sell the ink, I have never had it in the shop, I think I paid $99 on sale. The pictures are great. oh and I just gratuated from college after 7 years of use and copied thousands of copies from the ebooks.
Summary: We previously owned this identical printer/scanner/copier, but after a years of rugged home business use, (literally hundreds of printings and photo prints daily), it was running a little tired and we decided to get another printer to get us through tax season.
Summary: The MP450 works well for the price and occasional use. It goes through ink fairly quickly so I use it mostly for copying. The black and white copies come out nice but for scanning it's just average. It's easy to use.
Summary: I purchased the Canon Pixma 450 two years ago in conjunction with a new computer. It has been used in primarily in light duty volume applications with a few longer runs. To say I'm disappointed with it is being polite. This machine is S L O W and noisy.
