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: 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 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.
Summary: Try doing something other than copying or scanning (both work quite well actually) and you are in for a terrible time. The settings are simplistic "High print quality vs. Standard" (Oooo decisions, decisions) Don't try to print anything with vivid colors! You will get terrible results.
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 was excited to get a good deal on this printer through Amazon with my rebate. As a photo printer, I noticed that the colors were yellowish. I used it for scanning photos (which worked very well) and printing documents.
