Summary: This printer is perfect when you need a good printer and a copier for home. The flatbed scanner if very handy. I can make copies of small odd-shaped items that won't fit is some multi-function printers. It is a little slow starting up, but after that is fine.
Summary: I upgraded from an IP3000 Canon printer. The resulting pictures from this printer were as good if not better than the IP3000. The copies and scans are great. I also replaced and HP scanner that took forever to warm up and then was very slow at scanning.
Summary: The way I judge the Canon PIXMA MP510 is in the following manner: Cost of the ink refills, cost of the unit, speed to print in B&W and then color, scan quality versus speed and print quality, ease of setup, operation, and continued use, versus life of the All-in-One Photo Printer.
Summary: Just got the 510 and had no problems setting it up. Instructions are clear and the set-up program ran with no issues. Works right out of the box. Note that the printer must turned on and set-up before the computer is turned on. Print quality is superior for an ink jet.
Summary: I bought this printer yesterday and this review, therefore, has to be initial impressions. That said- the 510 puts out near laser quality B&W prints at an impressive speed. I had read a review somewhere that the color scans were not up to Canon's standards by a small margin which is high.
Summary: I have several Great American Cookie and Mrs. Fields Cookie locations in Oklahoma. We have purchased 5 of the Canon MP510! We are using them in the stores as edible image printers. Being able to use the machines with the food color cartridge is wonderful!
Summary: Bought the MP510 so my wife could print from her Macbook and I could keep the USB plugged into my iMac. I bought an inexpensive Bluetooth/USB adapter (ZOOM) and it works great. Prints fast with very nice quality. We've wasted a few sheets of paper getting used to the scanner/copier.
