Did not last so long.

  • Summary: Printed okay. LCD screen never really handy, small and not good to view. Printer lasted about a year (screen went black, a pain), not long compared to any other printer I've ever had. Use Canon cameras that I like, will never buy their printer again. No reason to, lots of choices.

Good Printer, but it's drunk on ink

Dustin Williams, Amazon
8 December 2008
  • Summary: I have been using this printer for about six months and I have thoroughly been enjoying it. Here's some of the primary advantages: - Excellent print quality with vivid colors. - The print speed is acceptable. I can print a full page, high-quality image in about 15 seconds. - The scan quality is excellent for a multifunction printer. It's fast and makes photocopying a page a real snap.

Too big, not very fast either.

  • Summary: Title pretty much sums it up. It is too large. And it does take a little while to load up after turning it on. Everything else works really well though. And the features are very nice.

Watch out for Ink Selling Features

J. Frey "Jim F", Amazon
25 April 2008
  • Summary: I have an Canon MP500, the closest thing to this that is now sold I think. It has one negative feature I think buyers of new Canon machines need to look out for. It has five ink cartridges of which two are black. A low ink warning comes on for each cartridge when it still has many weeks of ink left for my usage level.

Great printing and Scanning

  • Excerpt: Great product, however disappointed that Canon engages in the false ink supply system, forcing unnecessary ink cartridge replacement. I specifically chose Canon over Epson in an attempt to avoid this kind of issue. That choice came at a price, the MP520 was double the price of the Epson counterpart. I assumed that the money goes to pay for the product and full tanks of ink as opposed to the Epson limited ink offer, subsidized by future ink purchases at premium prices.
  • Pros: Great printing and Scanning
  • Cons: Ink cartridges 'die'  -  canon replaces defective cartridges

  • Excerpt: Эксплуатирую 4 года, печатаю в месяц примерно 100-300 листов текста и 20-40 фото формата А4. Качество печати фото на 4 с минусом (черное не совсем черное), долго думает перед печатью, при заправке картриджей не уходит в спящий режим (приходится вырубать питание).
  • Pros: Довольно выносливый аппарат
  • Cons: Работает громко Часто включает самоочистку головки Шлейф на дисплее сломался через год

  • Excerpt: Кто знает сообщите где можно приобрести головку по разумной цене,сообщите пожалуйста.
  • Pros: Печать текстовых файлов и цветных картинок и фото хорошая
  • Cons: Стоимость расходных материалов очень дорогая,засох черный цвет, реанимация печатающей головки ничего не дала, а без неё даже сканер не работает.Стоимость новой 4000р (МФУ взял за5500 руб).Да и найти печатающую головку трудно

Solaris, Ciao

  • Summary: Funciona perfectamente para un uso casero. Estoy de acuerdo en lo que se dice en la primera opinión. El problema es con los cartuchos de impresión. a) Todavia no hay cartuchos "marca blanca" compatibles. Sólo cartuchos originales. b) Si imprimes poco, el equipo limpia automáticamente los cartuchos, con lo cual gasta la tinta él solito.
