Summary: This printer appeared to be new as advertised. There was Canon tape on most parts. At least it lit up and came with installation disk and preliminary manual. It also came with new cables, which checked as working. I tried every way to get it to work as my default printer.
Excellent printer with good scanner and copier - this is my second one!

Summary: I had this same printer for several years and it finally died after heavy use. I was able to find the exact same one mint in the box and snatched it up. It is very reliable and scans and copies well and quickly. Ink cartridges are expensive, but last a pretty long time.
Summary: Printer works great. The Canon ink warning gives you plenty of time to get a new cartridge as there is quite a bit of ink remaining when the warnings first appear. Wish there was a little more ink in the cartridges, and they are pricey because you get a new print head with each cartridge.
Summary: Great scanner. One bit of advice. When scanning use the Omni Page Scan program from your desktop icon, much faster than using the controls on the printer. Great printer, easy access to ink cartridges for changing.
Summary: Have owned one of these printers for a couple of years and find it as perfect for my use as any printer I have ever had. When I needed a second printer this was my only choice. Since it is out of production ebay was my only source and they came through for me.
Summary: I got this printer because my old one got something lodged in it and wouldn't print. I loved that printer, so I got another one. This printer is noisier than the last one. Sounds like the print head ribbon is too long for it, but it prints great, scans great and that's all I need.
