Just ok, would not buy again

Tallguy715, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: This printer was no better than all the others made recently. It did not last long and had to get a new (refurbished) one from Canon under warranty. The print quality was ok, nothing to brag about. The worst thing was the cost of ink, two refills was equal to the price of the printer.

Bad control panel

Squire Howard, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: We got this printer free with a purchase of an iMac back in 2010. Within a year, the flip-up control panel stopped working properly. The LCD screen no longer came on, but the printer still worked.

Beware planned obsolescence!

Y. Brody, Amazon
28 February 2013
  • Summary: This printer works well until...the ink cartridges need to be replaced--even if they still contain ink! I never, ever print with color. However, I just tried to print something and the printer won't function--even in b/w--until I purchase another magenta ink cartridge.

Good printer, but failed early! Screen failures common

K. Coates, Amazon
2 September 2011
  • Summary: I liked this printer, but early on my screen went white. Searching the web I find that this is common. it's hard to use after that. About a year after that it completely died (no power at all). I expected more from Canon.

Planned Obsolescence! Cannot Repair This Printer

Roger W. Hockett, Amazon
30 November 2009
  • Summary: We have owned this printer for three years. Excellent little printer (much better than Epson regarding the ink cartridge use). However, BEWARE! Recently we came to work, turned it on and poof! No image on the LCD screen. So now you cannot control any of the features.

Canon MP520 Replaced after 5 Months

JYL, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: I used Consumer Reports to research a new Printer Copier Scanner and selected the Canon MP520 which was their "Best Buy". The printer worked great for 5 months then started pulling paper in at a diagonal. I contacted Canon.

No USB cable in the box

LVG, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: I just opened and set it up this printer today, but I can't find USB cable any where, it doesn't include the USB cable. That's very frustrated. I can't imagine this happens, very very disappointed.

User Review

Lev-Alexs, Yandex

  • Pros: Он сам + печать с флеш носителей
  • Cons: быстро ломается шлейф на экранчик, при выходе из строя печатающей головки можно выкидывать весь принтер, т.к. без неё он не может сканировать! а новая головка по цене сравнима с новым принтером!
