Summary: We purchased this printer to replace a 15 year old black and white printer. Wow! This was great. We have done school reports and spreadsheets and it's easy to set up and use. The scanner feature was one thing we really wanted and find the directions on the screen easy to follow.We did have to buy a USB cable which should really come with the product. Loading the ink was easy to follow. We haven't printed any pictures yet but hope to work on that soon.
Summary: I selected this printer based on a recent Consumer Reports review, which rated it #1. After reading the Canon web site and other reviews, I thought it would be wireless since Bluetooth was mentioned. To my surprise, you need to purchase a separate USB Bluetooth plug-in to be wireless! Otherwise, this printer is working very well.

I called Canon and they promptly sent me another cartridge, saying it was the culprit. A few days after that, the cartridge NEXT to the one I had problems with started doing the same thing. I called Canon again, and they sent me a replacement.
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 ...
Summary: ~ Einleitung ~ Ein neuer Drucker musste her - der alte hp deskjet 3325 musste abgelöst werden. Da ich oft Probleme mit den kombinierten Farbpatronen von HP hatte (nur rot war leer), war ein ausschlaggebendes Feature jeweils separate Farbpatronen. Nachdem ich mich durch diverse Angebote gekämpft hatte, entschied ich mich für den Canon Pixma MP520, da ich viele positive Rezensionen gelesen hatte und der Preis von ca. 90Euro noch akzetabel war.
