Cannon MP460 is clunky to set up & use and SLOOOOOW
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I aquired the Cannon MP460 when I purchased my IMAC because they had a special price plus a rebate offer. I have been extremely disapponted with this device given Cannon's lofty reputation. It is my 1st non-HP printing device ever & I'm sorry I decided to change brands; won't be going back to a Cannon next time. It is clunky to set up and use with confusing or nonexistant "help" on both the device and documentation.
Summary: Folks, I hate to be so negative, but this printer is a disaster in color, although, acceptable in B&W. It's a good looking printer, and the black print output is quite good, but the noise, speed, and color print quality are very bad. With all of the printer options on the market, go and chose something else. Why did I buy it in the first place? Good question. I bought it at an Apple store when I purchased an I-MAC. The price of the printer was $[...], but with a $[...
Summary: I have always treated my peripherals with care and caution. But now I want to drop-kick this one off of my balcony. It repeatedly gives a paper jam error, even though there is no paper jam. (I have triple-checked.) Numerous advice columns suggest resetting steps, but none of them work. The most likely solution has been posted at fixya, but it entails taking the whole thing apart and using a piece of electrician's tape to improve upon a canon design flaw.
Summary: I got this as a deal with my MacBook Pro and I think I was only able to get one print out of it before it stopped working all together. Constantly got a error message saying there was a paper jam when there wasn't one or it said its out of paper when there was plenty. Finally I just threw the darn thing out. Don't buy this lemon.
Summary: Bought the MP460 about a year ago, based mostly on Canon's reputation for imaging quality and the online reviews available at the time. I must say I seriously regret having done so. First of all, printed color reproduction with the included profiles is very bad. No matter what I did with either the source image or the driver settings, I could never manage to get accurate colors, tending always towards red, and excessively saturated, contrasty images, which washed out...
Paper feed problems after little time, Cannon service provides no assistance

Summary: With little use in a year time, (I was a deployed solidier and my wife traveled a lot), this machine started jamming by crinkling the paper on one side of the feed. I called Cannon for support, they had me clean the roll then told me it's a mechanical error, they would be happy to give me a discount on a new machine. I will never buy a Cannon printer again!!!
Crappy Printer Lasting only as long as the warenty

Summary: Seriously. This printer is a not good. I got it with my Imac about two years ago. I am a graphic designer and I print alot. The printer broke one month, one month after the warranty was up. I called cannon and they waived the warranty cause I said that I was in the print industry. But now, about another year, its completely broken. The paper spoolers only work on one side and wont feed the paper, when they do it gets jammed.
Summary: I originally submitted my review at a 1 out of 5; however, after speaking with Canon support, I was surprised they are offering to replace my printer free of charge. Amazon doesn't seem to allow me to update my rating (which i would based on the support call). Ours broke down near the warranty expiration, and Canon is shipping us a new one. I almost didn't call support, thinking we were out of luck -- now I'm glad I did.
Summary: I have had this printer for about two months and at first I loved it. I did have some problems with horizontal ink lines at the beginning but a few simple head cleanings took care of that problem. I loved how the scanner would Auto-crop the white platen glass edge off of your photos for you without lifting a finger.
