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: 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: Bought this about 1 1/2 years ago and wish I didn't. Almost immediately I had problems with the print quality, then it suddenly stopped working altogether. The closest repair facility is over an hour away in another state so I called tech support.
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.
Summary: I've only owned a couple/three ink jet printers through the years. I bought this one largely because of a Consumer Reports recommendation. When it's working well, I have no complaints: clean, crisp printouts in b&w or in color.
Summary: I got this printer to replace an Epson that just took too dern long to warm up and print a page. It was taking forever....This is not much better. Still a lot of ink charging and jyrating before I get a page. The color seems to be good but not that much more remarkable than the old slow Epson.
Summary: Pros: 1. I bought at a local store,with discounts I paid, $70.00. Loved the price. 2. The software that came with my printer/scanner/copier is top notch. 3. The ink seems to last me for a very long time. The price is close to what all ink for other printers cost. No complaint here. ;) Cons: 1.
Summary: I ordered this printer over a month ago. The first one that arrived would not recognize the print cartridges that came with it. After calling canon tech support a few times they finally decided to send me new cartridges. After a wait of almost a week the cartridges showed up.
